September 24, 2017: Jewish High Holy Days Service: Choices and Challenges

Rev. Joy Atkinson

The High Holy Days of Judaism provide an opportunity for observing Jews to consider the moral choices they have made over the past year, to own up to wrongdoing, and to begin a New Year with a clean slate. What might these observances have to teach us all about taking stock of the choices and challenges in our lives?

October 1, 2017: Dispatches from Decade 8: Frontline on the Elder Path to (r)Evolution

Rev. Kurt Kuhwald

There is a new story emerging about what it means to grow old. Counter to the ageist narrative dominating our society, many elders are claiming an emboldened empowerment of spirit, intellect and humanity that can offer transformative engagement for this critical global moment. This morning, our speaker will draw from his own 74 years as well as from a dialogic community of Elders committed to conscious aging.

Rev. Kurt A. Kuhwald has served 7 congregations and 3 Community Ministries as a UU minister and has preached widely in the PCD. Conscious Eldering, Worker, Climate and Racial Justice are ministries that occupy his dedication now in his 74th year. Working with a community of active and conscious elders in the SF North Bay, he is excited about the emerging vision of elder living that is significant for all ages because it offers a new story of human development and transformation for these challenging times.

October 8, 2017: Looking For America

Rev. Joy Atkinson

525 years ago on October 12, land was sighted from the port side of the Santa Maria, the ship on which Columbus sailed in search of new lands and wealth. The sermon will explore the “discovery” of America and the legacy of this and other European conquests of lands already occupied by indigenous peoples.

October 15, 2017: United Nations Sunday: Loving the World

Rev. Joy Atkinson

 There is much in today’s world that is heartbreaking and worrisome. But there are glimmers of hope in many places, one of which is in the ongoing work and special projects of the United Nations. The sermon will explore how United Nations programs help to carry out some of the values that we Unitarian Universalists hold dear, and that we share with those who would build world community.
