Come as You Are - Then Change - Rev. Libby Smith - September 18, 2011 - We delight in being a “come as you are’ congregation, where each person is welcomed and respected just as they are. And may it always be so. But part of the role of any religious community is to challenge us to grow and change, to become more fully the people we want to be as we build the world we want to share.  11729k v. 1 Sep 19, 2011, 8:56 AM Webb Master

November 21: ‘Singing Our Story’— Rev. Libby Smith - All religious traditions seem to include some kind of singing or chanting in their ritual practice; the act of singing touches us in places that neither spoken word nor silence can reach. Some traditions continue to use the ancient chants of countless generations, but our music has changed over the years, and provides insight into how our movement has changed. The service will feature music from the new hymnal supplement.   10033k v. 3 Jun 5, 2011, 6:14 PM Amy Rodia

November 28: ‘Anticipation’ — Rev. Libby Smith We all like to have something to look forward to! During good times, anticipation of a happy event makes us feel even better. During hard times, that anticipation can sustain us and give us hope and strength. As we head into the dark and cold of winter, we’ll celebrate the things we have to look forward to. This is an intergenerational service with stories and songs suitable for all ages. Nursery care will be available for the youngest children.  19564k v. 3 Jun 5, 2011, 6:14 PM Amy Rodia

3/27/2011: “Deep Talk” ~ Rev. Libby Smith The great writer and poet Maya Angelou sometimes refers to a phrase from West Africa, “deep talk.” It refers to the kind of story or conversation that takes one below the surface, to deeper meaning. Deep talk is not about finding clear or easy answers, but to getting down to the places where we explore different levels of meaning than our day-to-day lives often allow.  18288k v. 2 Jun 5, 2011, 6:13 PM Amy Rodia

May 15: “Let Them Eat Loaves and Fishes” ~ Craig Anthony Rubano Back by popular demand, our guest speaker Craig Rubano, intern minister at the UU congregation in Princeton, NJ, takes on the notionof “miracle.” Many know the biblical story told of Jesus of Nazareth instructing his disciples to feed the gathered multitudes of followers with a few loaves of bread and a couple of fish. But, is this really a story about bread or fish? about feeding the hungry? about magic? about being out of touch with realities? about deciding who gets to eat and who does not? Or is the story’s message really quite simple? Well, the answer is … yes?  13794k v. 2 Jun 5, 2011, 6:13 PM Amy Rodia
