Extinguishing the Chalice
    We extinguish this flame but not the light of truth,
    the warmth of community, or the fire of commitment.
   These we carry in our hearts until we are together again.
 
Postlude
 “Christmas Must Be Tonight” (Robertson) / Silent Night (Traditional)

Thanks to everyone who participated in our service today.

All Services begin at 10:00 a.m.

Our December theme will be Understanding:

“Data is not information, information is not knowledge, knowledge is not understanding, understanding is not wisdom.”     Clifford Stoll
“The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.” Leonardo da Vinci
“I call him religious who understands the suffering of others.” Mahatma Gandhi

​Tune into us for a service in December to discover the many dimensions of understanding – ourselves, others, and the roller-coaster ride that was the year 2020.

 December 27 - The UUCL RE/SJ Committee
"Understanding You.  Understanding Me."

Come and join us for a soulful reflection on a path towards understanding.  


 

 
Happy New Year!
Our first 2021 theme will be "Awe"

January: Awe
“One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day.”  Albert Einstein

“If you think of feelings you have when you are awed by something - for example, knowing that elements in your body trace to exploded stars - I call that a spiritual reaction, speaking of awe and majesty, where words fail you.”  
Neil deGrasse Tyson


​We start the year by looking back, in Awe, at what the year behind us has wrought, and looking ahead, with Awe, to what possibilities the year ahead of us holds.  Join us on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. for these conversations.
