Message: “Our Living Tradition” from Rev. Jeremiah Kalendae

Rev. Jeremiah Lal Shahbaz Kalendae - May 8, 2022

Our Living Tradition

Our Unitarian Universalist tradition is alive in that it may evolve with the times through democratic processes. We follow a congregational polity which means we are a self-governing church. Our Bylaws Refresh Task Force has recently drafted proposed Bylaws to be considered for adoption. Come learn more about this work and the importance of democratic process to our movement.

From Monthly: "Nurturing Beauty"

For May, our theme is Nurturing Beauty, and we’ll explore it in worship, small group discussion, and personal reflection. Theologian Robert McAfee Brown wrote: “Where beauty is apparent, we are to enjoy it. Where there is beauty hidden, we are to unveil it. Where there is beauty defaced, we are to restore it. Where there is no beauty at all, we are to create it.” Activist and songwriter Phil Ochs observed: “In such ugly times, the only true protest is beauty.” UU minister the Rev. Mary Katherine Morn says: “Beauty awakens and admonishes us… We are here, in religious community, not to hide from the anguished cries or the tender lullabies. We are here, in religious community, not to protect our hearts from breaking. We are here together to borrow courage for the task of coming alive. We are here so that together we might heed the admonitions of beauty. Answer the call to create, protect, and preserve.”
