You are Welcome Here!
The Unitarian Universalist Community of Independence (UUCI) will have its monthly service at the Independence public library at 7 p.m. on Friday, August 15. The theme of this service will be "Restoring for the Seventh Generation.” Do we have an ethical responsibility for all of the ripple effects of our footprints, handprints and mindprints? Is there anything in our ethical responsibilities pushing us to restore the environment? How will our actions impact those who live seven generations from now? Conversely, can we address restoring it to what it was 7 generations ago?
As usual, after the service coffee, tea and cookies will be served.
*NOTE: The Program Committee will now meet immediately preceding our services (at 5:30), so anyone interested in participating is welcome to attend and contribute
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.
