Resilience is Not Rigid

Much harm is done by people being too sure, unbending, "holier-than-thou." How can we be true to ourselves and also develop a culture of possibilities, of open-heartedness, of flux and fluidity? To be able to improvise, and not insist on an old script for life? Theologically, our Unitarian Universalism is grounded in the notion that "revelation is ongoing," that we can always learn new truths. Can we find the courage to live into that way of being? Rev. Linda invites us into the questions.

First Fifteen—Three to four Sundays a month, all ages* join in worship in the Sanctuary for the “First Fifteen” minutes, after which those in K through 5th grade follow their teachers to their classrooms. Parents of K through 3rd grade are asked to sign their children out from classes ten minutes after the end of worship; children in 4th grade and up will be dismissed to find their parents at the end of class. *Nursery care for infants—4-year-olds is available during the entire service in Building 3, Room 33.
