You are Welcome Here!

The Unitarian Universalist Community of Independence will meet on Friday, March 6, 2015 for its delayed February service, annual meeting and elections. Join us at the library in Independence at 7 p.m. for a fun team building exercise, a little bit of "business," and an undoubtedly spirited discussion of our upcoming adventures. Our Program Committee will meet immediately before at the same location at 5:30. All are welcome to participate in either or both meetings. As always, cookies, coffee and tea will be shared (along with continuing conversation) after our annual meeting. AND WE WILL HAVE OUR REGULAR MARCH SERVICE on March 20, 2015, so please plan to attend then, too!

Because of the great diversity of our services, you will need to attend more than once to get a feel for who we are and what we do. A typical service will present readings from a variety of sources, "religious" and otherwise; perhaps Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, humanism, wisdom literature, poetry, New Age writers, historical Unitarians, psychology, or many other sources. There will be hymns representing these same traditions, and musical selections ranging from classical to folk and popular. Special musicians, both instrumental and vocal, greatly enrich our services from time to time. 

Because we have no minister, the service may be presented by a guest speaker, may be an all-musical program, possibly a dramatic presentation, a meditation experience, or a panel discussion. Messages are quite varied and range from the theological to the personal to folk narrative to topics specific to our church and denomination.

In all our services there is much good will and good humor as well as serious reflection.
