“The Invitation to Immensity”
We start with the simple understanding that the world is as we perceive it, referring to the UU Principal # 4 as a free and responsible search for truth. Dennis invites us to explore the science of how humans perceive the world differently from animals and each other.
CUUBies will participate in a fun chemistry experiment and two demonstrations of seeing the unseen. We find many examples from a new book called “An Immense World,” by Ed Yong (2022) to discover that what we thought we knew from our senses, just ain’t so! The implications are vast and amazing. From this new perspective we reflect back on where we started: the fundamental principles of Unitarian Universalism: Truth, worthiness, and justice with an extra dose of humility.

“Flower Communion Pride Day”
Today The Rev. Leonetta invites you to:
Bring a flower or other symbol of spring, and
Dress in Pride Rainbow colors and designs to participate in this annual ritualized service which honors the UU core value of celebrating diversity.
This interfaith ritual was originally created by Czechoslovakian Unitarian Norbert Capek (circa 1921), who also started a “School of Religious Science”. He stated that religion should provide ‘inner harmony which is the preconditioner of strong character, good health, joyful moods and victorious creative life.’
Now that’s a definition of religion to embrace!

“A Juneteenth Solstice”
Together we acknowledge this first day of summer as the light of the sun shines to expand understanding of the significance of the last 250,000 slaves being freed by Union troops in 1865 in Galveston,Texas. As of 2021, this newest federal holiday was signed into law as the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act.
While WE know recognition of this holiday is pivotal to shifting the multi-levels of racism in our country, do we know how to spread this perspective?
Rev. Leonetta will include a tribute to our Fathers in our service as well.

About Unitarian universalism
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.
Welcome to Community Unitarian Universalists in Brighton (CUUB). With a deep commitment to honoring the inherent worth and dignity of every person, we come together as a congregation of open minds, loving hearts, and helping hands. We are unified by our shared search for spiritual growth, and our historically strong commitment to social justice. Whatever your age, race, or sexual orientation, you are welcome here. We invite you to join us in our free and responsible search for truth and meaning.
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.
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.
