WATER COMMUNION SERVICE This is our first service following our summer break. We gather together to renew our fellowship by bringing water we have collected during our summer! The water is placed in a common vase as we affirm our commitment to the Unitarian Principles and our relationships within our fellowship.
Holly Denning will be with us to speak about water and its importance to the health of out world.

Our Touchstone topic this month is Covenant. A covenant is a promise freely made and entered into. While the concept of covenant goes back to the ancient Israelites, its relevance to Unitarian Universalist churches is rooted in two events. The first was the founding of Unitarianism in 16th century Transylvania. Words atributed to Francis David were, "We do not need to think alike, to love alike." It was based on the words of Jesus and his call for a radical and transforming love as the basis for the kingdom of God. The second event was the arrival of the Puritans in America in the 1630s, who organized their free churches around covenant. Member Barbara Fett will talk about this early history of Unitarianism in America and how "covenant" remains alive in our principles.
