November 1st: This Week at BBUUC

This week at BBUUC….

Don’t forget that Daylight Savings Time Ends Sunday morning! Be sure to “fall back” an hour before you tuck in on Saturday night!

Sunday, November 3 10:30am: “The Service of Memory”

Join the congregation in a UU ritual where we remember our loved ones who have passed. You are invited to bring a photograph or memento of your beloved (person or animal) and share briefly about them. Let everyone know the difference they made in your life and others. Photographs of our loved ones will be displayed on a table for the congregation to view.

During the service, memorial hymnal dedications will be presented.

Joys and Concerns may be shared from the altar just before the close of the service.

  • 10:30am: Rev. Jack Ford will present “I Know You Are But What Am I? Part I – Humanism”

Ministering to Unitarian Universalists is challenging, rewarding, and very interesting.  So many journeys.  So much love and happiness and caring.  And a willingness to be mixed up.  Often we seem to be unsure of what we really ‘believe’, what label we choose to wear, if any.  Defining our spiritual, religious, or philosophic endeavors is not easy for thinkers who promote “the right of conscience” and “a free and responsible search for truth and meaning” and such high hopes as these.  Far easier to understand them.  You know: those Christians meeting on Sunday morning (of course); those Pagans meeting somewhere; those Spiritualists taking over the ‘church’; those Humanists, wherever they are.

In this sermon series, Rev. Jack will explore the affinity groups, philosophies and movements which make up this great big bright umbrella called the Unitarian Universalist Association.  Part One is a look at HUMANISM.

Joys and Concerns may be shared from the altar just before the close of the service.
