Services for January 2014 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Peninsula
January 5th: “Life Shines Through”
Nobody’s perfect, but that can be a good thing! We’re much more likely to learn from our failures than from our successes, and it’s through the cracks of our imperfections that new life can unexpectedly shine. The new year invites us into hopeful anticipation of what’s to come, but let’s remember to allow space to be blessed by miracle, inspired by mystery and supported by love.
Special music will be provided by Robin and Lucy van Tine!
January 12th: “Many Faiths Make Us Strong”
Rev. Jennifer Ryu has served as minister to the Williamsburg Unitarian Universalists since 2006. She is also Vice President of the Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association. We welcome Jennifer in this pulpit swap with Andrew, who will be preaching in her place at WUU.
January 19th: “Thirty Days of Love”
Standing on the Side of Love is a community of people compelled to speak out against oppression, united in the common belief that love is the ultimate guiding force of our world. The Thirty Days of Love is a period of intentional action, service, education, and reflection to focus on this essential work. What will you bring with you on this spiritual journey for social justice?
January 26th: “The Problem That Will Not Go Away!”
Civil and equal rights would seem to be a “given” for a cultured society, but the eight-hundred pound gorilla still occupies space in any room in which we reside. Our Fellowship has played a part in making things right since our founding. Our local community has also played a part in this subject, both good and bad. Join our own Richard Hudgins and others in a service that offers both clinical examination and personal reflection on where we have been and where we are going.
Special music will be provided by the UUFP’s ChorUUs!
