This Saturday, at 2 p.m., the Memorial Service of Lucy Waters will be held at the church. Lucy was a much beloved member of this congregation, and we are thankful for the opportunity to express our appreciation for her life and work in this service.
This Sunday we will continue our exploration of the theme of the month for April focused on rebirth, transformation, and renewal. We have looked at the ancient symbol of the labyrinth – a symbol that spans Pagan and Christian traditions and thousands of years – and we have explored the symbol of resurrection which is rooted in a Christian perspective but has parallels in many different and diverse faith perspectives. This Sunday we will “look east” and explore the idea of reincarnation, which is one of the major Eastern symbols of rebirth and renewal, believed in by millions of people around the globe. Rev. Ed will be leading the service and the sermon, entitled “Reincarnation for the Unitarian Universalist Soul,” will be given by Summer Albayati-Krikeche, a candidate for UU ministry.
The chalice that’s used at General Assembly is touring around the country, and this Sunday it will be at OCUUC! Thanks to Katherine Martin who made the arrangements.
