Navigating Life’s Stormy Weather
Sunday, October 25, 10:30am EDT
You may have noticed a theme this month – we’ve examined deep listening across generations and last week the topic was building beloved community. Today we will continue this theme. In this current period of global pandemic, social unrest, political uncertainty and community change we will consider a set of deep listening concepts to help us weather these storms individually and collectively. This exploration of deep listening will include ways to bring practices of intention, curiosity and contemplation to be able to strengthen our community, within and beyond our walls.

What Do We Do Now?
Rev. Fred Hammond
Sunday, November 8, 2020, 10:30am EST
The election results are in (maybe) and regardless of who will assume the Presidency on January 20, 2021, Unitarian Universalists are still called to honor our Principles and embody the sources of our living traditions. So what do we do now? Rev. Fred L Hammond will explore this question.
Rev. Fred L Hammond currently serves the Manatee UU Fellowship in Bradenton, FL as Developmental Minister. CUUB fondly welcomes Rev. Hammond back for this Sunday service because among his many accomplishments, he served as Student Minister for CUUB in 2006/07 during his final year at Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago.
