"What does it mean to be a people of faith?"

February 1
"In Good Faith?"
with Rev. Mark Stringer; Celebrant: Carla Hicklin

As we kick off a month of considering what it means to be a people of faith, Mark will consider the relationship of intentions to outcomes.

February 8
"Religious Naturalism: Faith in Creation"
with Linda Barnes, Ministerial Intern; Celebrant: Petra Lange

Linda will consider, as Ursula Goodenough puts it, “The Sacred Depths of Nature” as a spiritual expression that can help us transform and make holy our relationship with creation.

February 15
"Radical Acceptance & Love"
with Rev. Erin Gingrich; Celebrant: Carissa Fields

We close our religious services each week saying, “Let us go from this place open to life, expecting to love, and prepared to serve.” These words express faith in a particular way of engaging life. They also offer great relationship advice. Whether we are talking about partners, spouses, parenting, friendships, or family, how are we open to life, expecting to love, and prepared to serve in our most important relationships?

February 22
"Found in Translation"
with Rev. Mark Stringer; Celebrant: Mike Shaw

In a January sermon, Mark mentioned how his journey of faith has evolved from a tendency to too quickly dismiss the faithful perspectives of others towards a desire to respectfully translate these perspectives for himself into more accessible understandings. He will tell us more about this kind of translating and will share with us the importance of it for what he thinks is faithful Unitarian Universalism.
