8/1 - Poetry Service - Nature Theme...We're full on into summer, and it's time to appreciate the bounty of the garden and the lessons we gain from nature...growth, reciprocity, forgiveness, abundance, tenderness. CUUBies sharing our favorite poems about nature. What could be better? 

WA: Mary Temple

 

8/8 - "Preemptive Radical Inclusion toward the end of a pandemic"

CB will share reflections on the idea of PRI as an entryway to increase justice and equity among ourselves and in the world, a way to embody beloved community as we move toward what's next.

Speaker: CB Beal, M. Div (they/them) 

WA: Lee Anzicek

 

8/15 -  A Quaker TAO SPICES: Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, Stewardship

Dr. Michelle Byrd

This is a "Friday Reflection" from Brother Toby at Starcross, a small monastic community in Sonoma County California. Michelle asked Brother Toby for permission to read his Friday Reflection from April 16th, 2021 called "SPICES"

A note about Starcross: The community attempts to lead a prayerful, monastic life and to be one of the many presences in the world affirming the value of compassion for all. We have responded as we could to the individual needs of the suffering and the struggling, particularly children. Since 1986 we have felt a specific calling to respond to children impacted by the AIDS pandemic - in this country and abroad.

WA: Karen Sanderson

 

8/22 - CUUBies Discussion Group

Title: Lessons from Nature, Preemptive Radical Inclusion and A Quaker TAO

We will provide discussion questions for each of the topics from the prior three Sundays and seek to understand each other's perspectives in this deep listening opportunity.

WA: Mary Temple

 

8/29 - Michael Dowd is back in CUUB's pulpit!

Inspiration from Everywhere and Anywhere

We recognize the diversity of our spiritual paths and beliefs, and offer a welcoming home for modern individuals and families who may struggle with singular dogma. We are united by shared values, not by creed.  We affirm and honor each individual's spiritual exploration.  

 

7 GUIDING PRINCIPLES

What do UUs Believe?

We're glad you asked! We affirm and promote seven principles which we hold as strong values.  Drawn from sources as diverse as science, poetry, nature, scripture, and personal experience, these principles are our shared moral compass.

1st Principle: The inherent worth and dignity of every person;

2nd Principle: Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;

3rd Principle: Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;

4th Principle: A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;

5th Principle: The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;

6th Principle: The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;

7th Principle: Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.​

Deeds, Not Creeds

Our legacy of "deeds not creeds" calls us to harness love's power to stop oppression and make the world a better place.  Whether that means spreading kindness in our daily lives, planting a garden with our children, grassroots community organizing, or interfaith advocacy, marches, and prayer vigils, Unitarian Universalists strive to put our faith into action.
