This Month's Services
Rev. Bryan Fulwider
“A Labor of Love: Non-Violent Change in the 21st Century”
On Labor Day, our thoughts naturally turn to work - its value and the conflicts that often arise. This year, our nation is also experiencing a conversation about values and conflict and, as the Labor Movement often had to choose, we, too, are called to choose our response to contentious dialogue and situations: non-violence or not? How does our faith guide our responses? How do we, as people of faith in a better world, lead the conversation and set an example for moving forward? Rev. Bryan Fulwider joins us today to help begin this process of discernment and self-reflection.

"Ingathering Sunday: Gathering of the Waters and New Member Welcome"
Join us for Ingathering as we begin a new congregational year by mingling the water from our summers and warmly welcoming new members to our UUUS family. Our very own David McElroy will present the tale "What Will You Bring to the Feast?" as a way to bring your best self to our beloved community. Bring your water and come prepared to share in a word, "What will you share with UUUS, from your heart and spirit, in this new congregational year?"
Potluck Following Service
Dr. Jean Raffa
"What Do Relationships Have to do with Spirituality?
We tend to think of enlightenment as a strictly spiritual pursuit but it’s not solely a function of any one aspect of human nature. It’s the whole package. Mature spirituality is an ever-evolving journey into non-dualistic, high-level consciousness and transforming love which involves every aspect of our being. The journey begins by establishing three-in-one relationships within ourselves and with others.” Dr. Jean Raffa is an author, speaker, and leader of workshops, dream groups, and study groups. Her job history includes teacher, television producer, college professor, and instructor at the Disney Institute in Orlando and The Jung Center in Winter Park, FL.

"Creating Harmony – How to Disagree Without Distancing"
The world seems to have become very polarized. We must be for, or against, with no middle ground. How can we can we create a space for sharing ideas that move us forward and conversations that bring
us closer together despite differing opinions? Modern-folk music duo Friction Farm, Aidan Quinn and Christine Stay (husband and wife), combine storytelling, social commentary and humor to create songs of everyday life and quirky observations. They join us after a fun-filled summer tour that included SUUSI.
We invite you to visit...and we hope you will visit more than once, because each week offers a different speaker and a different focus. One thing is the same every week, though – our principles, values, and warm welcome!
We are a"lay-led" congregation with a different speaker every Sunday morning. We hear from a wide variety of academic, spiritual, and social justice speaker. Our Sunday Services are designed to illuminate different spiritual paths and strengthen our sense of self, family, and community.
