UPCOMING SERVICES

Sunday, May 19, 2019: "Sturdy, Not Strong," with Rev. Abbey Tennis

When we think of “courage” we often think about the boldness of a hero fearlessly charging into the fray. What if courage is not the 'glorious moments of bravery' but is instead the daily plodding work of learning when to speak up and when to let go, when to stand one’s ground and when to pass the torch to another? What if our courage is more about sturdiness than strength?

PAST SERVICES

Sunday, May 12, 2019: "Original Blessing," with Rev. Abbey Tennis
As Unitarian Universalists, we believe not in “original sin,” but in “original blessing” - the belief that each person is born with a spark of the divine. What does this mean for our lives? What does it mean for how we treat each other? As we gather this Mother’s Day and dedicate two children into our community this morning, how do we ground ourselves in our faith while celebrating our spiritual diversity?

Sunday, May 5, 2019: "Music Sunday: Terraforming for Liberation," with Nate Bergey and Rev. Abbey Tennis
Some of us are at a low point in life and are searching for reasons to get out of bed in the morning. Some of us are at a high point in life and are searching to make our joy more meaningful. Whether high, low, or somewhere in between, how can we draw nearer to our sense of purpose?

Sunday, April 28, 2019: "You are Your Reason for Living," with Rev. Abbey Tennis
Some of us are at a low point in life and are searching for reasons to get out of bed in the morning. Some of us are at a high point in life and are searching to make our joy more meaningful. Whether high, low, or somewhere in between, how can we draw nearer to our sense of purpose?

Sunday, April 21, 2019: "Remember Me," with Rev. Abbey Tennis
On this Easter Sunday, we gather to celebrate the ancient Christian holiday of Easter – a holiday that calls to us of renewal of the earth, renewal of hope, renewal of faith, and renewal of spirit. How can we usher renewal into our lives and our hurting world?

Sunday, April 14, 2019: "Earth Teach Me," with Rev. Addae Ama Kraba
There is a great imbalance on planet earth. To resolve the contradictions that exist between self and other, body and spirit, mind and nature, requires listening to the needs of the earth as it cries out to us. There are many lessons to learn from the earth.

Rev. Addae Ama Kraba currently serves as Minister to the Unitarian Universalists of New Braunfels in Texas. Prior to ministry, she spent over twenty years in the field of mental health that led to employment in Ohio, Pennsylvania, California, and the Hawaiian Islands. She has served at all levels of the Unitarian Universalist denomination and is currently a member of DRUUM (Diverse, Revolutionary, and Unitarian Universalist Ministers) and president of the Unitarian Universalist International Women’s Convocation (IWC). A Texas resident, she lives in the hill country of Boerne with her mother, daughter and her two toy poodles King Solomon and Queen Makeda.
