Sermons for October

Seeking Forgiveness

Rev. María McCabe

October 6

Last Sunday marked the beginning of the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah, the beginning of the Jewish New Year. Traditionally, the days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are a time to seek forgiveness from those we have wronged. In this service we will honor this ancient tradition and ask how a discipline of seeking forgiveness might help us become our best selves.

Whose Are We?

Rev. María McCabe

October 13

Quaker teacher Douglas Steer invites us to reflect beyond the core question who am I by asking whose am I? In this service we will take these questions one step further. Who loves me? Who needs me? To whom am I accountable? And how do these questions relate to our faith?

Yearning to Belong

Rev. María McCabe

October 20

Is it possible that we humans need connection with one another even more than we need food and shelter? It’s a provocative claim and there is some contemporary research to suggest it. For a faith tradition like Unitarian Universalism that centers on covenant rather than creed, this is an intriguing question.

Creating the Beloved Community

Stephen Buckingham

October 27

The American society and our UU movement were built on a foundation of independence of personal belief, individual initiative and personal responsibility. But the dominance of individualism has inhibited the creation of a Beloved Community. How can we reclaim from a culture of self-interested individuals a sense of shared interests and move toward more compassionate and inclusive American and UU communities? Stephen Buckingham comes to us from the UU Legislative Ministry.
