January 20: The Sound of Silence
Service Leader: Rev. Meghann Robern
Service Coordinator: Marian Siemens
The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." This Sunday we will delve into how living into our shared values as Unitarian Universalists means truly listening to cries of others as often as it means speaking up.
January 27: Blessings of the Ice
Service Leaders: Rev. Meghann Robern & M.C. Ziegler
Service Coordinator: Odell Havsdotter
By this time of the year, many Canadians are cursing the ice and snow that surrounds us. In the same way that we as Unitarian Universalists celebrate the blessings of water and of flowers, in this worship service we will explore how ice offers us spiritual and religious lessons in our lives.
From the Minister's Study - January 2019
When the song of the angels is stilled, when the star in the sky is gone, when the kings and princes are home, when the shepherds are back with their flocks, the work of Christmas begins: to find the lost, to heal the broken, to feed the hungry, to release the prisoner, to rebuild the nations, to bring peace among the people, to make music in the heart.
~ the Rev. Howard Thurman
In the mythic storytelling that many of our congregations do in our services on Christmas Eve, we include the part about the magi travelling across the land, following a star. What’s glossed over in our worship celebrations is that in the original scripture, it doesn’t happen the same night that Mary gives birth. The magi arrive twelve days later, giving us the twelve days of Christmas and the celebration of Epiphany in early January. For those of us who also use the orthodox calendar, the entire holiday of Christmas and Epiphany is happening right now in the month of January.
