Our theme for the month, “Widening the Circle” calls us to welcome newcomers into our congregation, to embrace all among us now, and to create a world that celebrates all people. This noble aspiration of heralding the worth and dignity of every person is embedded in our UU principles. Sounds clear and easy. Is not always so. We will call upon the wisdom of Viktor Frankl, the psychiatrist and neurologist, and spiritual leaders His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the late Archbishop Desmond Tutu to help guide and inspire us, as we consider our congregational life, our individual inner journeys, and how we individually and collectively act in the world, especially as we engage with those that perhaps we see as outside our circle. What does it mean to widen the circle? When have we stretched enough, but not too far –, to land in the Goldilocks Zone? The service will include a concrete call to action. Come join in!
Our First Sunday drop-in covenant group will focus on our monthly theme of “Widening the Circle.” All are invited to participate. Revs. Lyn Marshall & Michael Leuchtenberger will facilitate on Zoom.
