October 25 - Changing the Story
Rev. Greg MartinUsing the work of David Kotten as a guide, Rev. Greg explores how stories shape our lives, especially the stories we tell ourselves around money. In fact, these stories can take on a sacred and powerful life of their own that we often fail to recognize.
With human and planetary well-being at stake, it is time to change the story we tell. A new story has the potential to shape a Living Economy for a Living Earth.
November 1 - Samhain
Shannon Heather Hansen and members of CUUPSAs one part of the year comes to an end, another one begins. Join us as Shannon Heather leads us through our annual Samhain service.
November 8 - Covenanting Together: Grace
Rev. Greg MartinWe begin the exploration of the theme Covenant this month. We all owe more to others and this world than we can ever repay.
Grace is the theological word that we can use to describe all that we have freely received. It is the basis for covenant which is at the heart of our Unitarian Universalist faith. As we celebrate the Installation of our new minister on November 15th, it is fitting to contemplate the role covenant plays in our relationship.
Plan to participate in the communal art weaving this morning in the Gathering Space either before or after worship. Artist Kate Santucci is coordinating this project for ALL ages in preparation for the Installation.
November 15 - Covenanting Together: Practice
Rev. Greg MartinToday we continue with the theme of Covenant. Rev. Greg's sermon will remind us that covenant is not about words but about actions. And the act of forgiveness and beginning again is central to that practice.
November 15 - A Service of Installation - 3:00 pm
Ministerial Search CommitteeJoin in the ceremony of covenanting with our new minister as we officially install Rev. Gregory Martin as our third settled minister. Service begins at 3:00 pm, with a reception following.

Covenanting Together: Bread & Salt
Rev. Greg Martin and Shannon Harper, Director of Religious EducationCovenanting Together: Bread & Salt is the theme for today's celebration for all ages. Everyone is invited to bring a "bread" from their family or ethnic tradition to share with the whole congregation.
We'll also explore the symbols of salt and bread and how they relate to covenant or promise making and keeping. And because part of our covenant as Unitarian Universalists is with the larger world, we'll launch our annual Guest at Your Table special collection this morning.
