Lunar New Year Celebration!

,

Join us for a service and ritual honoring the Lunar New Year, one of the most celebrated holidays in the world. We will reflect together on some of the common themes of the holiday as it is celebrated in our Bay Area communities: family togetherness, unity, wholeness, and renewal. Join Daisy Quan, Wes Radez, Claudine Tong, the Chancel Choir and Joyful Noise for this Multigenerational Service.

Dualisms, Dichotomies, and Despair: Living in the Between

,

Binaries are basic to Western thinking, language, and teachings. We learn about hot and cold, good and bad, sweet and sour, right and wrong– the list is endless. Yet, languaging things this way sets up and continually reinforces a false dualistic template in our minds that informs our ways of moving through the world… Please join worship associates Amanda Smith, Kem Tetlow, Jim Briggs and E.N. Hill, pianist Geoff Ullerich, and Joyful Noise Band (playing in acoustic mode) as we search for ways to go beyond and between the extremes. There is Children’s Chapel today.

Unitarian Universalist Islam

,

“Come, come, whoever you are, wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving, ours is no caravan of despair! Even if you’ve broken your vows a thousand times, come, yet again come!” These words of the Sultan of Love, Jalāl ad-Dīn Rūmī, frequently resound in our liberal churches on Sunday mornings. What might it mean for Unitarian Universalism to truly encounter the Islamic wisdom tradition? Join me, Rev. Jeremiah Kalendae, Worship Associate Isabel Call, Pianist Renee Winton, Church Musician Stefan Schneider, and the choir, as we explore this question. This is a Time For All Ages service.
