May 13: Our Voice

Join us for worship this Sunday at 10:30 am as Rev. Greg offers his message, “Our Voice.” We will also participate in our annual Flower Communion.

The Flower Communion is a Unitarian Universalist tradition created by Dr. Norbert Capek at the Unitarian church in Prague, Czechoslovakia, in 1923. It symbolizes the beauty of the diversities of our religious community, the gifts we each bring and the ones we graciously receive. You have an important part of this ritual: Please bring a flower, or several from your garden or favorite floral shop. We will gather the flowers as you arrive (There will be vases into which you may place your flowers in the Gathering Area.)

Today’s music is performed by the Mill Creek Choir under the direction of Kristen Tosh-Morelli, with Pam Allenstein, pianist. Soloists this Mother’s Day morning for Paul Simon’s “Loves Me Like a Rock” (a tribute to mothers everywhere) are Jamie Kegerise and
Peg Duffy.

Before Service

Institutionalism (Unitarianism, Universalism, Consolidation) – An Introduction
May 13 – June 10

This workshop explores Unitarian Universalist history as one current in the stream of human history, with its own themes of thought and action that swirl, eddy, and bubble to prominence at different points in time. A selection of stories from our faith heritage offers not only a grounding of knowledge, but also insights into contemporary issues, practices, challenges, and trends in our faith movement. The workshop presents an overview and a time line which will help the group place events in historical context as they are explored in future workshops. This workshop will:

  • Invite participants to meet one another and create a covenant of participation
  • Introduce the themes and structure of the program
  • Demonstrate that knowledge of history offers insights applicable to contemporary issues
  • Offer an overview and a time line to serve as reference points during the course.

This is a drop-in discussion held Sundays from 9-10:15 am in the MacArtor Library. No registration or commitment is necessary.  Join us!​​

​​​​​It’s going to be another wonderful day of worship and fellowship at Mill Creek!​​
