Jewish and Christian Teachings
Dec 1: “Deep Communication as
Rev. Fa Jun
In this Sermon, we will learn how feeling deeply into our own and others stories, emotions, and needs can not only evolve this crucial Interpersonal ability, but also enhance our own Spiritual Journeys.
Dec. 8: “Broken Pottery Shards and Divine Sparks of Light”
Rev. Lisa Wiggins
In celebration of Human Rights Day we will examine Jewish mythology describing Tikkun Olam (mending our broken world.) Although radical social inequalities can sap our energies, there are successful “best practices” in ancient sources and leading edge ideas to help us work together to bring new breath to a struggling earth. Rev. Denis Paul will present the “Time for All Ages.”
Dec 15: “Prayer”
Rev. Russ Menk
Ann Lamott writes in her book that the three essential prayers are Help, Thanks, and Wow. Many of us come from other religious denominations where prayer is foundational. But what does prayer mean to Unitarian Universalists? Where is prayer directed? What does prayer mean to you? Can it be part of your spiritual journey?
Russ Menk is the newly appointed minister of the UU Fellowship of Santa Cruz County. Russ graduated from the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley with a MDiv degree in 20013. He was given Preliminary Fellowship by the UUA. Russ has been a guest minister at UUFLG in the past. He and Rev. Lisa are engaging in a pulpit switch on this date.
Dec. 22: “Lights of Hope:
Celebration of the Winter Solstice and Christmas”
A Combined Service with the Center for Spiritual Living & UUFLG
Rev. Lisa Wiggins & Rev. Alice Carpenter & the UUFLG Choir
Come celebrate the spiritual season with lights, music and our own internal glow of hope.
Dec 29: “Becoming God”
Rev. Denis Paul, Lifelong Learning Specialist
God the Super Humanoid is a lot of things to a lot of people including father or mother, savior or even tyrant. God the Verb is something completely different though. Together we’ll engage in the Process of God. We’ll make God together. We’ll become God.
Rev. Denis Paul is our new Lifetime Learning Specialist. He also serves as the contract minister for the UU Community of the Mountains in Grass Valley, and worked for five years as an outreach minister for the Faithful Fools Street Ministry in San Francisco. He lives in Modesto with his beloved, Rev. Joe Cherry
