May 1, 2016: "Giving Birth at the End of the World"

Katherine Slack, with Linda Haumann, Worship Associate

In hard times, where do we find hope? Can we move beyond fear and into creation as one world becomes the next? Join us in an exploration of these questions and the beauty beyond the end of the world. 

KC Slack is a writer, artist, activist, final semester M.Div. student at Starr King School for the Ministry, and a Candidate for Fellowship with the Unitarian Universalist Association. Originally from Cleveland, she currently lives in Berkeley where she can be found reading constantly, doing full faces of makeup to pump herself up for long nights of writing, dancing, and hanging out with her cats.

May 8, 2016: "Early May, and Mother's Day"

Rev. Chip Wright, with Nani Ranken, Worship Associate

Being a mother is a unique thing from a male's perspective -- at least the birth part is. But as our world changes, the image of the mother is changing as well. It seems the old images, like all things, are in change. 

May 15, 2016: "Tales of the Dervishes"

Rev. Chip Wright, with Karen Auroy, Worship Associate

The stories in Sufi tradition are some of the true joys in the religious world. Of those, nothing is better than the Dervish stories and those of Nasreddin! Come laugh, ponder, and join me on a journey through mystic Islam.   

June 5, 2016: "RE Recognition and Bridging"

Rev. Chip Wright & Jef Melcher, with Michael Lessin, Worship Associate

The Bridging ceremony is the final step on the path to adult membership, and allows youth to affirm their UU faith. It represents the final spiritual transformation from child to adult.
