Sunday, April 1 – 9 and 11 a.m. – Easter and Other Mysteries – Rev. Bryan Jessup
In this service we will ponder positive outcomes that sometimes arise from dark and dangerous scenarios. We will ponder a “grace” that is greater than all our doing. Even after difficult passages, life continues. Even after harsh winters, spring blossoms.
Sunday, April 8 – 9 and 11 a.m. – Balance When It's Difficult -- The Rev. Muata Rasuli
What do we do when the going gets rough? How can we find balance in a changing world when it seems ever more chaotic? We need balance between the outer seeming chaos and our needs for peace. There are many ways to find balance and Rev. Muata will tell us of some he has used in 25 years years as a minister of a Center for Religious Science in San Francisco.
Rev. Rasuli has also taught classes including about the writings of Henry David Thoreau through his Center and is quite familiar with our Transcendentalist tradition. Last year, Rev. Rasuli spoke to us regarding black history.
Sunday, April 15 – 9 and 11 a.m. – Unitarian Universalism and Activism – Rev. Bryan Jessup
In this service we will explore the link between Unitarian Universalism and activism and ask why UUs might be called to be activists in many different ways and why activists might benefit from being part of UU communities. None of us can accomplish great social change alone, but it won’t happen without us either.
Sunday, April 22 – 9 and 11 a.m. – For Our Children’s Sake, We Can Be More Sustainable – John Schaefer and Joanna Welch
Facing frightening environmental prospects, we can take heart to see the progress we’ve made since the first Earth Day, and HUUF’s solar electricity is one example. With that history, we can make the even greater changes we now know are necessary. In this service congregation members John and Joanna will describe and exemplify some sustainable changes. Watch for suggestions on car-pooling and biking.
Sunday, April 29 – 9 and 11 a.m. – An Interweaving of Traditions –Rabbi Naomi Steinberg
Rabbi Naomi will share her experience as a long-time practitioner of Siddha Yoga, a path of meditation and devotion. The program includes some of the Rabbi’s original mystical tales, Hebrew chants, and brief meditation practice. This service is in memory of Swami Girijananda.
