UUCB offers many special events between September and June: music, drama, worship, and much more. Come join us!
Sunday, December 16, 12:15 p.m., Meditation Room
Participants read a poem from the day’s Sunday service out loud, with each person listening for how it speaks to them on that day. A simple, reflective method for receiving poetry’s sacred gifts, based on the Benedictine practice of “lectio divina” or holy reading.
Stepping Stone Two: Practice
Come for respite from the holiday hustle, for succor if needed during what for many is not a merry time, or to set your direction for the New Year! Take an hour for yourself to quiet your thoughts, to listen to a poem like the one below, reflect on the way a word or turn of phrase touches you; then, listen again for the poem's direction as you chart your course for 2013. Share with the group what you've gleaned from the poem, as you read what you wrote or discuss what you sketched, in response. For the first meeting, bring a creative name tag and a poem that inspires you, if you like, to get us started!

WHERE DO WE COME FROM?
“A nation that does not know its past has no future.” “A nation that does not know its past, is doomed to repeat it.”
We’ve heard all types of variations on these kinds of quotes. They are pointing to an old axiom rich in wisdom. What it’s bringing to attention is the imperative that any community, in order to be adaptive, resilient, aware, and evolutionary in nature (that is, always increasing its strength and its vision) DEPENDS on the understanding and integration of the lessons of the past to help inform its future.
One of the critical elements of transition ministry is helping a community understand, accept and honor it’s past. The past for any individual or any community is never ALL good or ALL bad, but a mix of circumstance, reactivity, habit, vision and character. But the past will always be a very powerful influence on the future. The key to being intentional about the future is being honest, honoring and accepting of the past.
When did you come to UUCB? What was the vital promise alive within the community then that made you want to be part of it’s future? How has that promise been fulfilled? In what ways is that promise still waiting fulfillment? What are the most important truths about the past that the congregation should know to help it build a great future?
Come to the Congregational Conversation on OCTOBER 12, 2014 in the Social Hall for a community wide conversation about UUCB’s history and what is imperative to know.
Lunch will be served from 12-12:30 p.m. ($5 / person - $15 max / family) FOR THOSE WHO STAY FOR THE CONVERSATION. The conversation will be fun and have some very interesting ways to participate and learn about history. We will go to 2:30 p.m.
Childcare will be provided.
If you have any questions, talk to those on the Transition Team: Rev. Greg Ward, Cynthia Asprodites, Lynn Hammond, Lynn Cahoon, John Tucker, Gail Simpson, Karen Paull, and Marsha Saxton
