May 26: “Mysterioso Pizzicato”
By Cathy Corbin-Manino
“I do believe in an everyday sort of magic — the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art, and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence when we think we’re alone.” Charles de Lint
We come together at 10:30 am each Sunday morning to shape and define what is of value and worth to us, and to sing, meditate, and share our lives with one another. Our services focus on topics of spiritual, social and current concerns. Our Worship is designed to meet the diversity of spiritual paths that are embraced within Unitarian Universalism. Sunday mornings offer a celebration of community, an intellectual challenge, and a deepening of the heart.
Our Sunday Services are varied and unique, but generally we have an opening piece of music followed by a welcome statement, then a call to worship. Next there is a time for church announcements, and that is often followed by a time for sharing brief personal joys and sorrows. Then we often sing a hymn, which is followed by a children’s story.
After the children’s story, our children usually leave the service to attend classes or play. After the children’s recessional we collect the weekly offering with musical accompaniment, and then the main speaker is introduced. The Minister or guest speaker delivers the sermon, and we conclude with another hymn followed by closing words and then a final musical postlude. After the service we usually have a light lunch, coffee, and refreshing conversation.
There is no dress code requirement for our church. Some folks wear blue jeans and a T-shirt, others wear shorts and a tank top, and a few dress more traditionally in a conservative style. Wear what you are comfortable in, and you will be welcomed!
