Jan. 29, 2023 – The Unexpected Good Benefit

What do we do when our expectations are shattered? When our best-laid plans go up in smoke and making lemonade isn’t enough? Certain moments in life invite us to a radical shift in perspective. Join us in an exploration of Permaculture, transformative change, and other lessons Piper learned while driving pell-mell down a foggy, stormy Marin hillside at 2 am last week. Piper Rowanoak Swim leading with worship associates Josh Rose and Debby Kaplan, music leader Susan Keiter, and special music by Pop-Up Choir.

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.
