You are Welcome Here!

The Unitarian Universalist Community of Independence (UUCI) will meet for its regular monthly service on Friday, June 19, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. on the New River outside Independence. Please contact Amelia at wideopenskye@gmail.com for detailed directions to the meeting site. This will be a pot-luck, and the service will be brief. The service theme will be the 4th UU Principle, A Free and Responsible Search for Truth and Meaning. Please come prepared to share your thoughts on what this means for you!

There also will be continuation of a discussion regarding the new proposed By-laws recommended by the existing Board of Trustees and (hopefully) a membership vote to adopt these By-laws. 

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.
