Future Services

 

Each Sunday and throughout the year, we share insights and explore what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist.
 

Themes include exploring our principles, developing a caring community, discovering spirituality with a strong emphasis on social activism.

You will find us a welcoming and accepting religious community that fosters your spiritual growth and provides support in your search for truth and meaning.

Dec. 5th, 2021 “What is a Holy Day?” It’s the time of year where there are various holidays for many traditions, both secular and sacred. What makes a day holy and why is it important as Unitarian Universalists to honor holy days, even if they’re not our own? Join us for our returning Unitarian Universalist Minister, Rev. Tracie Barrett, Pronouns: She/Her/Hers; tbarrett@uuma.org 

 

Dec. 12th, 2021 "Christmas Carols, The Origin Stories." Have you ever wondered about the stories behind your beloved Christmas songs? Bill Lazarus reprises this program which was prompted by a member of 1st UU Church of West Volusia  and led to the publication of a book on this very topic. Bill is a historian, writer and more. He's a popular speaker at the church as he brings humor and often thought provoking discussion on his topics. You are guaranteed to learn something and have fun with this service.

 

Dec. 19th, 2021 "Ordinary Joy."  "Whatever may be the tensions and the stresses of a particular day, there is always lurking close at hand the trailing beauty of forgotten joy or unremembered peace" This quote from Howard Thurman reminds us that joy is always available, always around the corner waiting patiently to be experienced. What brings you joy today? In these challenging times are you remembering joy? Our program and worship committee and members present a joyful service to help spark the joy in you. Take a few moments in this often stressful season to remember the joy and peace now.
