DECEMBER THEME:  HOPE

December 10

Worship Service 10:30 am

“Wait Without Hope?” Rev. Bruce Johnson, presenting

I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope

For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love,

For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith

But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.

These lines from T.S. Eliot’s poem, East Coker, provoke the questions that will be explored in today’s sermon: What is the relationship between waiting and hope? How is ‘waiting’ a spiritual practice? What are we waiting for? New members will also be welcomed and recognized in the service this morning.

Multi-Generational Worship Service 10:30 am

 “A House for Hope”

Our annual “Welcome Winter” service is a multi-generational celebration of the season. Through music, meditation, storytelling, poetry, and thoughtful reflection, we remind ourselves and one another of the rich treasures of darkness that surround us and sustain us through the cold months ahead. This year, in keeping with our December theme of Hope, we will be exploring the question of where hope has its habitation, its dwelling place, and its spiritual home.    To be effective, hope must have a place to live. Its residence is in the human heart and especially in beloved community. As Unitarian Universalists, we are invited to lift and celebrate the many ways that we can help to build a “house for hope.”

 “For So the Children Come,” Rev. Bruce Johnson, presenting

“Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of humanity,” wrote Rabindranath Tagore. And the Unitarian Universalist religious educator, Sophia Lyon Fahs, agreed: “Each night a child is born is a holy night -- a time for singing, a time for wondering, a time for worshipping.” We will have one family-friendly, multi-generational service on this Christmas Eve morning. There will be no candle-light service this year.

 “Poetry and Hope”

At our annual poetry service, people are invited to bring a favorite poem to read. The format will be casual, and children are welcome to participate. As our December theme is “Hope,” you might want to consider sharing a poem that speaks of hope, or that gives you hope in times of discouragement.
