Rev. Michael Dowd

WA: Lee Anzicek

Order of Service will be published 4/20/2024

“being the Calm in the Storm"

Michael Dowd presented guest sermons in this congregation five times, beginning in 2007 and the fifth in 2021. He died suddenly last October. A sermon presented at the UU in Flint in August 2023 turned out not only to be his last, but his best. CUUB member Terry Sharik will introduce the sermon video by speaking about the crucial role our congregational responses (and critique) played in 2021. We helped Michael shift into a presentation mode of not just talking about, but actually being, the calm in the storm. Michael's widow, Connie Barlow, will also share a few words about Michael's shift into, what she calls, his grandfatherly "postdoom pastor" role, as their 18 years of itinerant ministry throughout the USA came to an end.

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.​


Liberal Values

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.

Check out the latest events here.

We'd love to meet you this Sunday @10:30am.
And relax, you can wear jeans, or your pajamas, if you're meeting on Zoom!
