KUUC WORSHIP CALENDAR- DECEMBER 2014:
December Hymn of the Month:
#112 “Do You Hear?”
December 7: “Redemption Song” with guest minister,
Rev. Jeanne Nieuwejaar
The word redemption may have an archaic ring to it, but it is, in fact, a principle that is central to our liberal religious faith. Our affirmation of the worth and dignity of every individual is hollow unless we also affirm our commitment to help reclaim the value of individual lives that have become lost or broken. This is the work of redemption. In this service we will look in particular at the challenge of reclaiming the value of the lives of those who are serving time in prison, reflecting through the lens of our faith on this very troubling issue. We will celebrate our Joys & Concerns today and the choir will sing. Rev. Nieuwejaar will also lead a workshop after coffee hour (see article below).
Greening of the Sanctuary:
Anyone interested in greening of the sanctuary please stay immediately after the service on December 7th to contribute to making our sanctuary beautiful.
December 14: “Prepare Yourself”
Although there are some things in life that come naturally to us, most require a high degree of groundwork to help us get body, mind and spirit coordinated, focused and strong. This is just as true of the various works of faith formation as it is any other aspect of life. Today we look at the importance of preparation necessary for creating authentic religious ceremonies and ritual, building spiritual practice and for living day-to-day. The service will feature a Time for All Ages based in our theme and a New Member Recognition Ceremony.
December 21: “On This Short Day”
Unitarian Universalism draws its strength from several sources known as “the Living Tradition.” In this way we are unique, acknowledging the simple truth that the diversity of our people, the complexity of our needs and the depth of our collective curiosity requires us to embrace multiple sources of truth. Today we celebrate the Winter Solstice and the earth-based traditions that reveal to us our connection to the interconnected web of life, the sacredness of nature and the world of wonder. The adults will share their Joys & Concerns within the service while the children meet in the Undercroft for their own chapel.
December 24: “Light Shines in the Darkness”
It will be another joyful and beautiful Christmas Eve at KUUC. The choir will share their ministry with us and once again young and old will participate in “The No Rehearsal Christmas Pageant.” Rev. Michael’s message will uphold the dual nature of our church as both a beacon and haven for people in this community.
December 28: Lay-Led, Theme to Be Announced
