Water Communion: Are You a Canal, a Reservoir, or a Swamp?

Indoors In-Person + Online: 10:30am MST

Led by: Rev. Christine Dance
Worship Associate: John LaBarbera
Music: UUCP Choir

American author, theologian, and Civil Rights leader Howard Thurman asks us if we are canals, reservoirs, or swamps. As we gear up for a new program year for the congregation and another difficult year in our country and world, we will explore these different kinds of bodies of water and forge some resiliency and hope for our year. Bring some water from your home or travels or use some that we will provide as we share in our Water Communion ritual.

Share the Plate

In April 2022, we started splitting our weekly offering 50/50 with a different organization each month, because we feel this approach better reflects our values than simply donating the entire offering from one service per month. The current recipient can be found on the homepage and in the sidebar on the Share the Plate page.
