January 8, 2017: "The State of the Congregation"

Rev. Joy Atkinson

How is the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Marin doing? Our interim minister will offer a transition-time assessment of the congregation’s successes, needs, and challenges, and will indulge in a little crystal-ball-gazing.

January 22, 2017: "Bring Me a Higher Love"

Speaker/Performer: Moses Channels and Soul Rising

Based on a true story of two young people deeply in love but torn apart by war and its lingering pain, the service will dramatize their passion, tragedy, and triumph of love and forgiveness in a sermon and through song. The group Soul Rising is made up of seven professional musicians who volunteer their time to present this inspiring spirit musical. Everyone is encouraged to sing along!

Moses is a second-year seminarian at Pacific School of Religion and the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, working towards a Master of Arts and Masters of Divinity. He has worked with the developmentally and physically disabled for over 30 years and helped establish the Disabled Students Independent Living programs at UC Berkeley and Moorpark College. He has been playing and singing professionally in both the Bay Area and Southern California since he was a teen.

January 29, 2017: "Someone with Skin"

Rev. Joy Atkinson

What do we want to receive from being in a religious community like UU Congregation of Marin? What are we prepared to offer one another to make sure that this congregation survives and thrives?

February 5, 2017: "I Love You Like Hell"

Joan Nelson

This month many of us will take some kind of private action--Hearts? Flowers? Candies?-- to demonstrate the love that we feel for those closest and dearest to us. At the same time, we must wake up to the urgent moral imperative to Show up…and Stand up…Straight and tall…to love the hell out of the personal and collective future that we want to see.

UUCM member and Chair of the Social Justice Committee, whose longstanding phone message has said, “This is Joan Nelson reminding you that the purpose of life is to make as much love as you can." Since her 80th birthday she has added, “While you can.”
