Sermons for May

Stop. Breathe. Smell the Flowers

Rev. Carol Thomas Cissel

May 7

It's May. Leaf buds are on the trees. Grass needs to be cut. Flowers are blooming. Our earth has moved into a new season, and is ready to cultivate fresh life. Places that we thought were tapped out are reawakening. Perhaps it's time for you to stop and discover what Spirit or Science is leading you to do? How do we find out what lies just under the surface of our lives… waiting and ready to blossom?

This is Flower Communion Sunday. Please bring a fresh cut flower to the service.

Are You My Mother?

Rev. Carol Thomas Cissel

May 14

There are all kinds of mothers out there: Biological and Adoptive mothers; Fathers who are also mothers; Step-Mothers, Working Mothers, Grandmothers, Mothers-in-Law and Stay-at-Home mothers. There are mothers who may have left us too early and mothers who may never let us go at all. A sermon about the blessings and burdens, joys and sorrows, and the responsibility and rejoicing of motherhood.

Wise Women’s Words

Rev. Carol Thomas Cissel

May 21

Lucille Clifton, Mary Oliver and Maya Angelou are three of contemporary literature's acclaimed and celebrated poets. Clifton is the keeper and the teller of stories. Mary's voice echoes Unitarian Universalist values. Ms. Angelou uses words to evoke joy, sorrow and to describe the bittersweetness that is the human condition. This service of music and words seeks to remind us to live fully, love what we love, find strength in diversity and re-imagine the world as we know it can be.
