Sunday, Jan. 6 – 9 and 11 a.m. – Justice on Earth – Rev. Bryan Jessup
What do environmental concerns, white supremacy, economic injustice and homophobia have in common? They are all forms of making the Earth and certain people “other,” rather than anything that should have our love and care. All these forms of oppression are interlinked. This Sunday we will start the new year with thoughts about dismantling all these oppressions in the world and in our own hearts.
Sunday, Jan. 13 – 9 and 11 a.m. – To Believe in Impossible Things: A CUUPS service – David Troxel
The Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans was chartered by the UUA in 1988 in response to growing interest in Pagan, Earth-centered, and women’s spirituality. With the founding of the Redwood Coast chapter of CUUPS, HUUF is now a home congregation for this eclectic affiliation of ritual and “magickal” practitioners who also subscribe to the principles and values of Unitarian Universalism.
Who are these folks, what and how do they worship, and where do they “fit in” with the HUUF community? And why the “k” in “magickal”? These and other questions will be addressed in this service by an initiated Wiccan priest and teacher of 30 years who, more recently, has become a Unitarian Universalist and HUUF member.
Sunday, Jan. 20 – 9 and 11 a.m. – The Gospel of Love and Justice – Rev. Bryan Jessup
The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a mighty drum major for justice, and he grounded all his efforts in love. In this service a new gospel singing group, which includes Jeff Thomas and Zera Starchild from our congregation, will join Rev. Jessup in celebrating Dr. King’s life and message.
Sunday, Jan. 27 – 9 and 11 a.m. – Embracing the Mystery Together – Danielle Stubblefield, Greg Blomstrom, Wendy Rowan, Cathy Hanafi and Bonnie MacGregor
Come find out what the Ministerial Search Committee has discovered about who we are and what we want in our new minister. The committee will share results of recent focus groups and the congregational survey, as well as what comes next as we step into the unknown with faith in the mystery, ourselves and in each other.
