Services for June 2013 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Peninsula
June 2nd: “From Where I Stand”
As Rev. Andrew comes to the end of his third year serving as minister to the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Peninsula — and as he looks forward to years of service still to come — he’ll reflect on the congregation’s life, mission and programs. It’s a privilege to stand before you on Sunday mornings, so come hear about some of what he sees from that vantage!
June 9th: “A Nobler World Than We Have Known”
We would be one! Let’s celebrate the “bridging” of our oldest high-school youth into young adulthood, the beloved Unitarian Universalist rite of passage that takes place at the end of each church year. We’ll hear from our bridgers about what it has meant to them to be part of this beloved community and how they’ll carry it forward into the next phase of their lives.
June 16th: “Things My Baby Daughter Taught Me”
The last year has been quite the voyage of discovery for the Millard family! Lots of people “advised” Allison and Andrew that having a child would change everything — and they were right! Life as new parents has been exhilarating and exhausting all at the same time, and they have learned things about themselves and what it means to be human that they never knew.
June 23rd: “Sing a Song of Summer”
Summer’s here, and the time is right for … some great music! Summer brings a variety of gifts on many levels, and we’ll look at these gifts through music and readings. The talented musicians and singers of our UUFP Winds and ChorUUs will be featured in this special service.
June 30th: “Mining for Gold”
A 1936 report to the American Unitarian Association noted that “Leadership doesn’t come by accident or magic or miracle.” Today we recognize the importance of leadership development, an on-going process of intellectual, emotional and spiritual growth that equips both new and experienced leaders with the technical and visionary skills they need. How does that work?
