October 12, 2014 - 9:30am; 11:15 am

 We gather for a morning in worship, UU interfaith style. How are Unitarian Universalists to think about peace in general, and peace in particular? When peace talks end, we have a problem. When one story or one scripture trumps another, we have a problem. When co-existence or other narratives are out of the question, peace is out of the question. The choir sings an Introit from the Islamic tradition and an anthem from the Jewish tradition.   

October 19, 2014 - 9:30am; 11:15 am

 This service will explore what it means to be generous, what it means to be fully human, and what it means to live in a city that doesn’t provide some of our most basic needs. The choir sings a Prelude chosen by the winners of the 2014 Auction Anthem bid. They also sing an interlude from the upcoming concert on November 2. 

October 26, 2014 - 9:30am; 11:15 am

 Today’s date is revered on the calendar of our religious tradition. Precisely 461 years ago, the heresy trial of Michael Servetus ended. Words and ideas matter and when ideas and words and books are burned, human beings are often next in line. We Unitarian Universalists should know a few facts of a great and nearly unbelievable story. New member and harpist Ginna Paredes will provide special music for the services.
