Sunday Worship: Flower Communion

Sanctuary 1260 18th Street, Santa Monica, CA, United States

Rev. Jeremiah Lal Shahbaz Kalendae, preaching; Karen Hsu Patterson, Worship Associate. We join with Unitarian Universalist congregations across the country and around the globe in honoring the annual Flower Communion ceremony. This ceremony, created by the Rev. Norbert Čapek of Prague, Czechoslovakia, and introduced to the United States by his partner Rev. Mája Čapek, helps us to celebrate beauty, nature, human uniqueness, diversity, and beloved community. Please bring a flower or two with you to share with the congregation this morning. Join us for worship in-person and online.

Sunday Worship: Queering Life

Sanctuary 1260 18th Street, Santa Monica, CA, United States

Queering Life. Rev. Jeremiah Lal Shahbaz Kalendae, preaching; Dr. Susan Hendricks Richman, worship associate. Our congregation made history when Rev. Ernie Pipes blessed a queer marriage in 1959! We've come a long way in the subsequent six decades with Unitarian Universalist congregations often leading the queer liberation movement while other religious traditions remained oppressive. There is still much to be accomplished in our time as we continue to queer life on our journey of collective liberation for all. Join us for worship in-person and online.
