Christmas Eve Service

Join us for our annual Christmas Eve Service. The choir will sing, the candles will glow, and the story of Christmas will be shared – virtually! Rev. Nica Eaton-Guinn (Chalice UU) and Rev. Julia Hamilton (USSB) are bringing our congregations together for this special evening. Music from the Chalice/USSB combined choir, along with carols to sing along to at home. Don’t forget your candles for Silent Night!

Stillness Speaks

As the darkness of this time of year closes in, and we remain sheltered in our homes, we visit the wisdom of stillness. Normally this time of year is frantic and exhausting. Can we do it differently this year, honoring the still small voice inside that yearns to guide us? Join us to hear stillness speak.

Healing Lessons from Nature: Thanksgiving Service

Nature, if we listen and pay attention to it, has abundant lessons in healing. Today, as we give thanks for our earth and harvest in this Thanksgiving service, we will explore the abundant healing gifts of nature. There will be a special collection for Harbor House during the service, as well as a drive-through food collection for Adelante Communidad and surprise after the service.

It Takes Practice – Music Service with Matt Meyers

Today, we join with the Santa Barbara and Ventura congregations to worship with a renowned UU musician, Matt Meyer. Our favorite songs, whoever the artist or whatever the style, were created in a strange alchemy of study and inspiration, of strict practice and of letting go. Spiritual Practice is a similar combination of dedication, muscle memory, and perhaps a little divine inspiration. Join us for a musical exploration of learning to risk, building the muscle memory of courage, and the spiritual practice of relationship when things around us are changing fast.
Matt is a musician and worship leader who has led hundreds of services for UU congregations across the country. He has a degree in hand drumming and serves as Director of Community Life for Sanctuary Boston.

Healing Together

On this post-election Sunday, we will look at where we are in this nation and discern a path towards healing. Join us to tend to our hearts and spirits at this time and feel the comforting presence of community.

Listening for the Truth

Forgiveness – A Gift of Renewal

Today at sunset, the Jewish Holiday of Yom Kippur, or the day of atonement, begins. It is a time to forgive and be forgiven. But what if forgiveness doesn’t just redeem another, but also marks the renewal of life for the forgiver? Forgiveness is one of the most powerful offerings we can make in life. Today we explore how forgiveness can give us the gift of renewing our own lives.

Renewing Our Faith

In June 2020, the UUA’s Commission on Institutional Change released a report suggesting ways in which we can remake our faith to live into the essential promises and ideals of Unitarian Universalism. Our Chalice Board of Trustees will be studying their report “Widening the Circle of Concern” throughout this year. Today we begin exploring some of themes and recommendations for systemic change to renew our journey in creating an equitable world.
