  • Worship: Accidental Saints

    November 26, 2017 @ 9:20 am - 10:30 am

    Accidental Saints: Revealing the Holy in Ourselves and Our Lives. Revelation is a word often associated with religious thought, particularly the wrath of the end times in the Christian scriptures. However, Revelation can be and is experienced as sacred moments and acts that reveal the holy to ourselves, sometimes through ourselves.
    In Nadia Bolz Weber’s book “Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People” she describes her process of discovering the truth of God in everyday people, events, and circumstances. How do we experience revelation in our lives? How is the holy and the divine revealed to us in our struggles, imperfections, and wounds? How can we welcome the Holy into our lives through welcoming Blessed Revelation? Please join guest preacher Amanda Weatherspoon as we explore the gnarly spiritual landscape of revelation and recognizing the holy.Half a Dozen of the Other and pianist Geoff Ullerich and Joyful Noise will illuminate our spiritual journey with music. Come let us be together.

  • Worship “Holy Lessons from OUR Mysterious Skies”

    December 10, 2017 @ 9:20 am - 10:30 am

    “Holy Lessons from OUR Mysterious Skies” Yes there is a divine mysterious nature to our shared cosmos. The holy appears in the humblest of places. Do you feel the “holy” in our cosmos? Do you see the “holy” everywhere? Please join Pastor Jacqueline, Worship Associates Kem Tetlow and Alessandro Gagliardi and Rev Sheri, as we grapple with the possibility, the concept that the “holy” is everywhere, all the time and in everyone. During the second worship, we will in-gather new members into the spiritual life of First Unitarian Church of Oakland. Geoff Ullerich and Richard Bruehl will bring in the sacred voice of music.
    There is Children’s Chapel today.
