Jan. 15, 2023 – Cultivating Radical Hope and Resilience

According to therapist Fritz Perls, “nothing changes until it becomes exactly what it is.” In order to stop climate change we need to look at exactly how immense the problem is, exactly how discouraged we feel. Come hear stories of people who hit rock bottom and found that under the rock there were unexpected wells of resilience & hope. Join Debby Kaplan, Heather MacLeod and Jack Macy of the Earth Justice Advocates (EJA), and worship associate Corless Smith as they introduce ethical maxims for living on our planet. Come prepared to share a story of your own.

Checking out First Unitarian Oakland?
If you’re joining us for the first time, we would like to extend a full welcome!  Please answer a few questions on our online Guest Connection Card.  When at church on Sunday, you can also ask questions & get help at the Greeting Table on the patio before the service.

On most Sundays right after the service, we have a quick Newcomer Welcome in the sanctuary — meet up with a church member in front by the pulpit, for a quick introduction to the church and answers to your questions — then join us in Wendte Hall for Coffee Hour.  If you attend via Zoom, you can stay in the Zoom session after the service for informal discussion in our Virtual Coffee Hour.

We look forward to you joining us for worship service each week! For more information, check out About Worship.
