Sunday services, November 2017

Here’s a look at services taking place in November 2017. Services take place at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday in RVUUF’s Great Hall. Gathering music begins at 10:25 a.m.

Nov. 5: What Shall We Do With All This Beauty?
All around us, there is beauty. Why? What does it call us to do? What does beauty demand? What does it heal in us and what does it ask of us? Beauty is abundant, but attention to it is not. Join Rev. Sean Parker Dennison for an exploration of beauty and abundance.

(Don’t forget to FALL BACK! Set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed on Saturday night, Nov. 4.)

Nov. 12: The Elders Called It Armistice Day
This holiday, still observed in other nations as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day, is a solemn acknowledgement of the cessation of hostilities near the end of World War I, the soldiers who died in the war, and the veterans, now all gone, who survived. Our service will explore perspectives on the Nov. 11 holiday, while lifting up contributions of veterans to their communities, including our RVUUF founder.

Nov. 19: The Abundance of Our Beloved Community
Fellowship member Alison Duren-Sutherland will explore the ways in which investing our selves in our church community allows us receive its abundant gifts.

Nov. 26: An Unfinished Thanksgiving
Gratitude is a an important spiritual practice in almost every tradition. But is gratitude alone enough? How do we bring gratitude to life? What might our gratitude call us to do?
