Sunday Services

Sunday, May 1 – 11 a.m. – The Heart Has Its Reasons – Rev. Peter Farriday and other HUUF leaders

In many cultures, May Day is celebrated on May 1 as a festive day of togetherness and rebirth. In that spirit, several Fellowship leaders and Rev. Farriday will share some of the heartfelt reasons they support and celebrate this open-minded, open-hearted Unitarian Universalist community.

Sunday, May 8 – 11 a.m. – The Many Modes of Millennium Mothering – Rev. Tom Lewis and Rev. Peter Farriday

In our newborn millennium, many aspects of personal mothering (and fathering) are practically the same as in ancient times, while others are totally new. Also new is the collective need to protect and care for Mother Earth and all her offspring in holistic, sustainable ways – and thus birth a new civilization.

Sunday, May 15 – 11 a.m. – HUUF in Transition: Special Congregational Meeting to Discuss the Path Forward – Margy Emerson and Rev. Peter Farriday

Members of the Fellowship have requested that the Board of Trustees call this meeting to start the process of discovery of who we are now and where we want to go. We will look at myriad creative, out-of-the-box ideas generated by the ministerial survey, consider setting up small-group discussions for the future, decide if we want to search for a local spiritual/community leader or leaders to help us navigate, and consider engaging a professional facilitator to assist in guiding us harmoniously through a rethinking and reshaping of our Fellowship.

Sunday, May 22 – 11 a.m. – Let Service Be Our Prayer – Amy Day

For our monthly in-person Social Action Sunday effort we will partner with members of Community United of North Arcata (CUNA) in their monthly park and street cleanup at Carlson Park in Valley West. This will be an excellent chance to witness our seventh principle in action, “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part,” as we seek to reclaim the commons as a space for mutual benefit and well-being.

Zoom participants will have the opportunity to engage with this month’s initiative from the relative safety and comfort of their own homes, as we talk about ways to care for the spaces which we collectively inhabit for the long term.

Sunday, May 29 – 11 a.m. – Poets Back by Popular Demand – Pat McCutcheon

By popular demand, Humboldt’s Fellowship Poets will return for a third close encounter with fans and with friends. We are told that the limelight becomes us, but only you, beloved audience, can verify that claim. Come! Listen! Behold! Snap those fine fingers and wrinkle that nose. One show only on Sunday coming in Spring. Jot down the date for your poetry fling.
