April 1 Arisen Again: The Meaning of Resurrection Myths:
(includes Flower Ceremony)
Easter is not a traditional holiday in the Unitarian Universalist tradition, although the Flower Ceremony (sometimes called the Flower Communion) is a distinctively Unitarian custom, although it doesn’t necessarily coincide with Easter. Regardless, on this Easter Sunday, we will have our Flower Ceremony, while we explore the meaning of various myths about resurrection and why they have been important to us throughout history. Christianity has one story to tell, the Pagans another, as do others. We look at mythology through the critical lens of modernity, using story to find meaning. This service will be structured a bit differently than most, to make it family-friendly and multi-generational.
Worship Leader: Rev. Michael Walker
April 8 Welcoming the Stranger
What does radical hospitality really mean? Is it just the latest buzz-word in church communities? And, while we’re talking about this: Do we really want to welcome in strangers, anyway? I mean, I just come here to see my friends! Right? Not so fast. Rev. Mike reminds us that while we may develop very strong friendships with other congregants, churches are not social clubs. Part of our mission is to make a difference in peoples’ lives, and sometimes the people who need us are currently strangers…

April 15 Who Are We Together?
Being in relationship with others takes work; sometimes, it is not easy. But is it worth it? Especially when we examine who we are together: are we not greater than the sum of our parts? It seems that our collective voice can be better heard in the world, than each of our individual voices.
