Speaker: Jonathan Prescott
Celebrant: Susie Wilson

Jonathan Prescott returns to shareReflections on
Gratitude. He’ll help us see how gratitude can transform selfish impulses into sources of love and compassion. When gratitude is present, the world looks, feels, smells, and tastes better; our thoughts are lighter; we feel more whole. Doesn’t that sound like something to give thanks for?

Upcoming Services at SUUF

November 29 & December 6

"For migrant families in rural America, survival isn't easy. For five young women in Washington's Skagit Valley, survival isn't enough."

This is the introduction to a 2016 documentary filmed in our own backyard. For these two weeks, we have the good fortune to take a look at the film and meet one of the young ladies who participated in its production. 

In week 1, we'll watch the documentary "Every Row A Path", where we go inside the lives of local high school girls as they navigate their difficult lives as students and migrant farm workers.

In week 2, Cilviana Hernandez will join us to share how the making of the documentary impacted her life and that of her family.

In keeping with our commitment to worship together with other Pacific Northwest congregations, this series is being co-presented by members of Free Church Unitarian in Blaine. Please plan to attend both weeks as the services are connected in many ways to both churches.


Our hearts go out to Ashley, Jasmine, and Alyssa, whose father died of a heart attack Tuesday of last week.

Can you sing better than a coffee grinder?
(... or even if you can't ...)

Join us for another round-robin sing-and-strum-along and exercise your musical muscles.

Saturday evening, November 21st, at 5:30 pm.

You're welcome to join in and sing, read a poem, or just listen and enjoy. Anyone can take their turn on ZOOM and have fun sharing their art.
