Sermons for October

Domestic Violence

Rev. Allen Siegel

October 1

October 1 is the unveiling of our Silent Witness silhouettes. Our guest speaker that morning will be Reverend Allen Siegel the chaplain and director of spiritual care services at UM Upper Chesapeake. Rev. Siegel will be sharing his wisdom about domestic violence as he encounters it in his vocation.

Please join us for the Silent Witness Ceremony immediately following the service.

Brave Spaces

Rev. María McCabe

October 8

Is it possible that our need to feel safe (and comfortable) holds us back from difficult conversations that would help us grow? In this service we will follow the lead of our Unitarian Universalist youth as we consider creating conversation spaces that are brave, and not just safe.

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

Courageous Together

Rev. María McCabe

October 15

It was activist and s/hero Helen Keller who said alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. Our community of faith can inspire us and help us cultivate resilience and courage for the journey of our lives.

The Courage to Change the Things We Can

Rev. María McCabe

October 22

This well-known line comes from the so-called Serenity Prayer of liberal theologian Reinhold Niehbur (1892-1971). In this service we will explore the courage required to heal, especially from the chronic disease of addiction.

Honoring Our Ancestors

Rev. María McCabe

October 29

From Samhain to Santería, the prehistoric Naledi to modern celebrations of the Day of the Dead, our global human family has long created rituals and remembrances of our ancestors.
