Video Service: Practicing the Sacred Art of Listening

Caitlin Regan will lead our worship with a sermon by Rev. Carmen Emerson entitled “Practicing the Sacred Art of Listening”

How are we changed by listening? How are we changed by being heard? No matter one’s theology or spirituality, we all have the capacity to practice the sacred art of listening.

About our speaker: Rev. Carmen Emerson is the Affiliated Community Minister for BBUUC. Her work as an ordained UU minister in full fellowship happens within the wider Jacksonville community, currently as a chaplain resident assigned to the palliative care team at Baptist Medical Center. Rev. Emerson’s experience as a parish minister includes ten years of full-time service to our UU congregations in Albuquerque, NM (contract); Meadville, PA (called); and Nashville, TN (called).

During this time of social distancing, when in-person worship has been suspended, BBUUC will continue our weekly worship in video format that you can find on YouTube each Sunday morning at the “BBUUC Video” channel. Simply subscribe to the channel on YouTube, and you can watch our weekly worship services, modified for video viewing until we can resume gathering together for worship in our church sanctuary. The worship videos will remain on the site for viewing at your convenience.
