Unitarian Universalist Atheism is a special and important voice
in our tradition, offering us grounding and the chance to reach
out fully to those least welcome in these places we call “church”.
We heard about the history of atheism in our movement, and its
place in the lives of contemporary Unitarian Universalists.
Rev. Eva Cameron, Maureen Murphy (WA) There is a lovely story from the Buddhist tradition, which is used to teach us skillfulness in those moments when we find ourselves freaked out, scared, nervous, terrified—and all the other kinds of fear that come with being human. This day we explored this story as we think about Crossing the Boundary of fear.
As we begin the new year, we pause and remember those who have come before us—our early Universalist forefathers and foremothers. They got together and created our congregation on January 5, 1875. This year we will learn a bit about some Universalists who Crossed Boundaries because of their faith. And, as every year, we will got out the old Communion silver and shared in a ceremony of love.
The Annual Treats and Talents Auction Sermon
~~ Rev. Eva Cameron, Karen Impola (WA)
Based on the book, The Atheist’s Guide to Reality by Alex Rosenberg, this year’s auction sermon was purchased at the Treats & Talents auction by Ruth Walker. We explore this author’s ideas about reality, how it informs his life, and what that has to do with Unitarian Universalism.
Festival Sunday: Day of the Dead
~~ Rev. Eva Cameron, The Festival Team
We have been reflecting on how death, and the many “small deaths” in our lives, each mark a boundary we have to cross. The Festival Sunday team planned a special service of remembrance. The congregation brought photos or mementos to share of deceased loved ones.
On Being Lost ~~ Rev. Eva Cameron, Krista Saylor (WA)
Part of the wonder and terror of heading off into the unknown is being LOST. Sometimes magical things happen, and we learn new things, meet new people, discover things about ourselves or others. Sometimes we find ourselves confused, upset, angry, disoriented, and wishing we had stayed home! A good part of Crossing Boundaries means accepting the risk of being lost.
Seeing Ourselves Truly ~~ Rev. Eva Cameron preaching with John Miller
John and Eva are excited to bring another dialogue sermon to you. We will share stories and explore the ways we have of starting to see more clearly the privileges that come to us by virtue of our birth, race and status in life.
The Ministry Council brought this service to us to explore the boundaries that we cherish, our covenant with each other — and the covenants our ministers keep with our community. We have many different kinds of ministers among us: Parish, Community, Student, Lay as well as a long standing, historic view of our faith tradition which calls for the “Prophethood and Priesthood of all believers”. Join us in re-covenanting together.
