The Social Justice Team, with guest speaker James Favel, and Service Coordinator Gord Clark

January 21: Resistance Is...

Rev. Meghann Robern and Service Coordinator Roger York

Sometimes that little voice of resistance inside ourselves is warning against danger, and sometimes it's holding us back from something new.

How can we tell the difference?

Theme-Based Ministry

What is it?

Theme-based ministry is a new way of doing church and faith development that brings Unitarian Universalists together across differences of life experience, age, or beliefs. It’s a way of helping us focus and deepen, both in our spiritual lives, and in our connections to one another.

Each month, we look at a new monthly theme – past themes have included Hospitality, for example, or Compassion. A monthly theme packet is made available with questions for reflection, links to books or film clips to explore, spiritual exercises to try out, and ideas for integrating aspects of the theme into parenting, justice work, personal study, and so on. Some people like to consider each theme in relation to the question, “What would it mean to live a life of … ?”

Throughout the month, the entire community explores dimensions of this theme though aspects of our common life at the church, such as music, meditation, and reflections from the pulpit. There is also a monthly theme discussion group that meets from September through June. Please see for more information.
