February 7, 2021:  Tending the Garden

Rev. Rachel Baker, Interim Minister

Gunilla Norris writes, “The deep urge in our souls wants grounding, needs light, longs for living water…. We cannot grow on our own any more than any plant in nature….” This is true for religious communities as well. We must tend our relationships within, among, and beyond UUSO.

 

February 14, 2021:  Side With Love, sponsored by 30 Days of Love (learn more here)

What if to “side with love” meant making bold, faith-full choices? What if it were even a little bit scary? This worship service brings together worship leaders and musicians from across the country to offer hopeful, moving, challenging reminders about what we, as Unitarian Universalists, are called to do, and BE, in the world.

 

February 21, 2021:  How Can We Keep from Singing?

Join Tim Horne, Music Director of UUSO, for a morning of safely-distanced singing on Zoom for the annual music Sunday.

 

February 28, 2021:  Renew, Restore, Rejuvenate

Rev. Rachel Baker, Interim Minister

Gather to celebrate UUSO’s commitment to renew, restore, and rejuvenate as we begin the annual pledge campaign. Unitarian Universalist congregations are self-governing, self-supporting, and self-funding, independent of a hierarchical structure. What does it mean to be a self-supporting religious community.

 

March 7, 2021

Join the Rev. Susan Frederick-Grey, President of the Unitarian Universalist Association for a special pre-corded service celebrating UU congregations and our collective generosity.

 

March 14, 2021:  Walking

Jim Mills, guest leader and member of UUSO

For most of human existence on earth people not only walked to get from place to place but to heal, to connect with their surroundings, and to seek the divine. Might now be the time to re-discover this deeply ingrained practice as we begin to heal ourselves and our country?

 

March 21, 2021:  Rebels and Heretics

Rev. Rachel Baker, Interim Minister

Unitarian Universalism is filled with an interesting cast of characters. This morning we will look to the leaders of the past. Perhaps learning their stories we will be inspired by their courageous lives.

 

March 28, 2021:  Flipping Tables

Rev. Rachel Baker, Interim Minister

On Palm Sunday, we look to the story of Jesus flipping the tables in the courtyard of the Temple in Jerusalem. What can we learn from his story to inspire us today?

 

April 4, 2021:  Easter Sunday

Join area UU congregations for a live, shared worship hour, featuring ministers and musicians from central New York.
