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, September 19th. The theme of this service will be a guided meditation, led by our very own Rob Smith.Most people are only conscious of their thoughts because the mind is usually conditioned to surround itself with itself. But what happens when the mind is taken out of the head and into the body? Join Rob Smith for a guided meditation through the body and into a state of consciousness normally reserved for long time meditators just before they enter Nirvana.

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.
