University Unitarian Universalist Society

Liberal Religion in East Orlando Since 1993
• Diverse Beliefs • Shared Values • One Community

 

UUUS is a "lay-led" congregation with a different topic every week, drawing speakers from academic, spiritual, and social justice organizations. Our Sunday Services are designed to illuminate different spiritual paths and strengthen our sense of self, family, and community. If you seek a fellowship that encourages you through your spiritual journey but leaves its direction in your hands, we welcome you!

This Month's Services

July 23

Rev. Tracie Barrett-Welser
“Applying Our Principles”

It's natural to apply our principles of inherent worth and dignity and the responsible search for truth and meaning to those within our walls.  But what about our friends and family and those who disagree with us? Rev. Tracie Barrett-Welser serves as the consulting minister at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Lake County in Eustis, FL.   She considers herself a UU Evangelist as her heart's desire is to share the good news of our liberal faith.

July 30

Dean Sluyter
“Natural Meditation: The Way of Effortlessness”

Dean Sluyter has spent a lifetime studying and practicing with Eastern and Western sages who are preeminent masters of this natural approach. One of the most experienced (and clearest, and funniest) meditation guides in the United States, he has taught since 1970, from the prisons of New Jersey to the rainforests of Guatemala.  Dean will share his philosophy of body, mind and spiritual practices with us.

After service, Dean will offer an additional workshop opportunity for a more in-depth journey into his methods.  RSVP to programplanningchair@universityuus.org for details.

August 6

Dr. Terri S. Fine: “Religion and the U.S. Supreme Court:  A Focus on Education”

This presentation will consider various questions posed to the U.S. Supreme Court regarding religious freedom and children in school.  While the U.S. Supreme Court has considered both the free exercise and establishment clauses of the First Amendment, there remain unsettled issues.  The Court has considered both religion in public schools as well as the role of government serving children enrolled in private schools.

August 13

Rachel Equality Gardiner: "Does This Sermon Make My Butt Look Big?"

Blending wit and wisdom, Rachel Equality Gardiner, past President and lay-leader from First Unitarian of Orlando, explores the topic of body image, and how it might impact our effectiveness as advocates for justice.

We invite you to visit...and we hope you will visit more than once, because you will find a different focus every week. One thing is the same every week, though – we always offer the same principles, values, and warm welcome!
