August 5th “A Religion for Our Times”
Service Leader, Jeff May
Many of us have practiced our “elevator speech” . . . that short explanation of our religious tradition we keep at the ready for when someone asks us, “So, just what is it that Unitarian Universalists believe?” When graced with a little extra time in a particularly slow elevator we are sometimes asked to elucidate what the words “Unitarian” and “Universalist” mean, and end up at a loss trying to make names which described 18th and 19th century heresies relevant to our 21st century liberal religious context, or stumble over trying to define the difference between what we believe as individuals as it relates to our movement as a whole. We will hear a few of our members share their elevator pitches. This service is a celebration of what our Unitarian Universalist faith is, and what it can mean to the world.
Music ministry will be shared by Dr. Charles Kaplan and Eileen Lagasse, and there will be a special video chalice lighting.
Child care will be available.
