Sermons for February

Regret and Self Resurrection

Rev. Carol Thomas Cissel

February 5

At the end of our lives, we never wish we had worked more, made more $$$ or bought more stuff.  No, at the end of our lives we regret not taking more vacations.  The times we walked out the door without kissing our beloved goodbye.  Refusing hugs or help when they were offered.  And family feuds, which kept us away from weddings, graduations and other once-in-a-lifetime rites of passage.  Can we do something now to eliminate regret?  Can we change our focus to see The Things That Really Matter?  Perhaps. The solution may lie in self-resurrection.  No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.Gautama Buddha

… let Justice Roll Down… Amos 5:24

Rev. Carol Thomas Cissel

February 12

Low wages.  Unjust power structures.  Urban food deserts.  For many of us, these are words without personal connection.  But, for millions of US citizens, these realities are barriers to living, trapping them in destructive cycles of poverty, hopelessness and premature death.  This morning we'll explore economic injustice and the politics of hunger. As long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality persist in our world, none of us can truly rest.Nelson Mandela

Stewardship Kick Off Sunday: Dollars and Sense

Rev. Carol Thomas Cissel

February 26

t takes Dollars and Sense to sustain the UUFHC family.  It takes intentional, ongoing gifts of our Time, Talent and Treasure.  How will each of us take care of this community? What are we willing to give, to support the UUFHC facility and programming? How can we celebrate what we have, while doing what we must to protect all that we hold dear? We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.Winston Churchill

The Stewardship Kick-off Event follows the service.
