Sermons for April

Compassion: Can We Care Too Much?

Rev. Carol Thomas Cissel

April 2

In our global society we are saturated daily with the pain and angst of others. According to the American Institute of Stress, while …we have not been directly exposed to these traumas… we [may] hear the story told with such intensity, or we hear similar stories so often^hellip; [that] …we suffer. Unfortunately, that which makes us human, compassion, can also hurt us. Let's talk about caring for others, while practicing self-care.


What's Music Got To Do With It?

Rev. Carol Thomas Cissel & Richard Schroeder

April 9

Music and hymns play a central role in our Sunday services. But… why? Why do we raise our voices in communal song? When were hymns added to worship services? Why does music grab our attention and speak to us in ways that words (in sermons, prayers, meditations etc.) do not? Join us as we make a joyful noise and learn about the history, meaning and integral role that music and song play in worship.

If you have a favorite hymn, please email it to Rev. Carol (rev@uufhc.net) by April 2.

Social Justice collection today!
A potluck luncheon follows the service.

Easter Has Something for All of Us

Rev. Carol Thomas Cissel

April 16

Easter is season of faith, renewal and hope. Whether you find sustenance in the Christian resurrection story, the metaphor and mystery of the nameless Divine or in the beauty of the known logical world, there is something in the Easter story for you.

PS: Don't forget to wear your loveliest Easter Bonnet!


Mercy, Mercy, Me

Rev. Carol Thomas Cissel

April 23

In the midst of World War II a German fighter pilot ignored his mission and escorted a badly damaged American plane to safety. In that moment Mercy took root in his heart and he was changed. Are benevolence and kindness a regular part of your existence? Is Mercy evident in your life? Come ready to listen and talk about the positive role that Mercy plays in our lives.
