Roots hold me close; wings set me free

The “Spirit of Life” hymn echoes with the words roots hold me close; wings set me free, reminding us of our faith’s living tradition. Unitarian Universalists treasure the stories and wisdom given by our spiritual ancestors, and we also embrace new learning. We celebrate the diversity that enriches our faith and strive to deepen our understanding through continuous growth and expansion of our wisdom.

Flower Communion Sunday
Rev. Jen Youngsun Ryu

This annual celebration is distinctly Unitarian and has grown to symbolize many important aspects of our faith.  Today we take a joyful look at the flowers themselves.  

Please bring a flower to place in the basket so that we can create one gorgeous bouquet. 

Singing Together:

  • Hymn #299 Make Channels for the Streams of Love 
  • Hymn #91 Mother of All
  • Hymn #311 Let It Be a Dance

This Sunday’s Community Offering will benefit Plaza de Nuestra Comunidad.

During worship, Room 1 is a space for people who need or prefer less sensory stimulation. Thank you for using this room respectfully and mindfully.

Justice: Faith in Action

Ours is a faith that seeks and does justice. That work is, as the Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker says, a “striving for what is not yet but could be.”

A church doing justice work differs from the way other organizations or institutions do justice work in its grounding, framing, and motivation. In what guides us as we do the work. In what we return to when threatened by discouragement or violence. If we want to go the distance, then we must have a firm footing to live from, not just morally or intellectually or ethically, but spiritually.

Get involved with Environmental Justice, Economic Justice, Legislative Action, and Racial Justice today!
