A Sense of Mission

Church consultants tell us that a driving sense of mission (which may or may not include a mission statement) is vital to a congregation’s success.  But it’s easy to fall into habits of institutional maintenance, doing what we have always done.  How do we nurture what one person has called “the glowing coal at our congregation’s center”?

New Beginnings; Repurposing and Reinventing Our Lives in 2022

By the time the guest minister, Rev. Dr. Qiyamah A. Rahman speaks to CUUB on January 30 we will have experienced a full month of the new year, 2022. Many of you were probably more than happy to put 2021 behind you and to transition into a new year. Many of you are still spinning and feeling the loss of loved ones and friends, isolation, uncertainties, financial ,  anxiety and adjustments. Perhaps we can approach 2022 with a sense of curiosity rather than trepidation. 2022 represents a new beginning – not a dissipation of any of the challenging circumstances of 2021, but an opportunity to repurpose and reinvent how we want to show up in 2022. A renewed attitude and determination to identify a new normal, to lean into those practices that keep you centered. Perhaps it is time to recalibrate your life! Let’s talk about new beginnings!

Widening the circle: Theology

In June 2020, the UUA Commission on Institutional Change issued a comprehensive and challenging report, Widening the Circle of Concern.  This was the culmination of three years’ work auditing the power structures and analyzing systemic racism within our religious denomination.  This month I’ll address two of the Commission’s topics, Theology and Hospitality, under the rubric of the February Soul Matters theme, “Widening the Circle.”  What impact might they have on life at CUUB?

Are you missing CUUB in-person gatherings? 

Until we can safely gather again at the building, the Ministry Team is opening a one hour Zoom every Thursday night at 8:00 pm for a midweek “coffee hour”. This is an informal time to come together to re-connect, chat, and just hang out. There is no expectation other than being together!  The Zoom link is found at www.cuub.org/calendar. Scroll down to the day of the event.  Hope to see you there, friends.

Returning to In-Person Gatherings

We know it's difficult to stay apart in these challenging times.  CUUB is following CDC and UUA guidelines to determine when we can safely do various activities.  We hope this chart will help with understanding the conditions in which we can be together so that we can be inclusive of those who remain vulnerable.

Each row represents an activity and precautions we must take to allow it. Each colored column represents a CovidActNow level.  You can check the current level at: covidactnow.org

If you have questions about specific activities or how to read the chart, please contact board@cuub.org or ministry@cuub.org.

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.
