Sunday Service at 10:30 A.M.

December 2nd: Michelle Gallo (UU Glens Falls)
"Voices in the Wilderness: Celebrating Advent in Troubled Times."
- This service will explore the historical roots of the season of Advent, its spiritual significance, and what its place might be in our Unitarian Universalist lives today.

December 9th: Barbara Threet
"Rest of the Christmas Story"
- There are many seasonal stories that speak of magic, or perfection, or hidden treasures or discoveries of some sort. But most stories have other stories behind them. What else might we discover if we look behind the obvious or the well-known?

December 16th: Dr. Alan Betts
"The Climate Challenge"
- The changing global climate is an immense challenge to all of life on Earth. How can we understand our role deeply enough to restructure and redirect our societies?

December 23rd: A sharing service
"Ornaments from UUCR congregation"
- Individuals from the congregation will share stories that relate to special ornaments.

December 24th: Barbara Threet "Christmas Eve service" at 5 p.m.

December 30th: Grace Alden
"Trans People and the Cornerstones of Unitarian Universalism"
- Most Unitarian Universalists have reviewed and thought about the 7 Principles. Grace Alden will examine them and reflect on how we think about trans people, and therefore how we treat trans people. Afterward, she will facilitate a discussion centered on useful and harmful frames in understanding trans members of our society.

January 6th: Rabbi Yaakov
“Trek” Reef - Let the Mystery Be
- A fun and interactive service inspired by our 4th Principle, our 1st Source, and the lyrics of folk singer Iris DeMent's song "Let the Mystery Be".

January 13th: Barbara Threet
"My Hut’s Better than Your Hut!"
- The story of an evolving disagreement between Hare and Monkey will be woven through this INTERGENERATIONAL service, which will include the congregation.

January 20th:
- For most of us, vulnerability is a great fear, and something to be avoided, denied, and hidden. However, it can also be a blessing and a virtue to be nurtured and cultivated. How can we open ourselves more to the world, and what might we gain from doing so?

January 27th: Barbara Threet
"450 Years Ago…"
- the Edict of Torda was signed (well, on January 28, 1568, actually). Don’t know what that is, or why it matters? Or the connection between the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire and Unitarianism? There are some surprises in our history!

February 3rd: Herbert Ogden
Words: “Denomination”? “Faith”?
- This talk will further explore the questions raised in the President’s Letter in the November Newsletter. A particular question is: what does it mean when the Unitarian Universalist Association refers to UUism as “an uncommon denomination” or “our faith”?
