Upcoming Online Worship
Sun Mar 21, 10:00am ~ “Hypocrites!
~ Rev. Meredith Garmon

On the one hand, we all fail to live up to our ideals. (If you're fully living up to every one of your ideals, it's time to get some new ideals.) If hypocrisy is merely failing to live up to the ideals we profess, it's not such a bad thing. What is it that's a serious problem? And, aware that noticing other people's hypocrisy comes so much easier to us than noticing our own, what does integrity require of us?
Sun Mar 28, 10:00am ~ “Trust
~ Rev. Meredith Garmon

“Trust” will be our theme for April. There are good reasons not to trust in many cases. To cultivate trust will require discerning what is trustworthy, and abiding therein.

Messages from Ministry

RE classes meet next Sunday, March 28th.
 
We are hosting children’s Drag Queen Story Hour this Saturday, March 20th! Here’s the flyer. Friends and grandchildren welcome! The RE Announcements & Resources doc has information for all ages, our BIPOC and LGBTQ++ communities, and Summer 2021 UU camps!

View the the full RE schedule, including class dates and topics. Visit the Adult RE Parent/Caregiver class resource document with materials for adults who are supporting youth in developing healthy self-esteem and relationships. 

Hypocrisy is a term bandied about freely to cover a multitude of sins and perhaps to obscure a wealth of virtue as well. Is it the classic "double-standard" fueled by blind entitlement? Is it willful duplicity motivated by self-interest?... This Sunday's music includes our own Creighton Cray who brings us a solo piano rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah"... Read Adam Kent's blog post.

From Hunger and Homelessness

Collection of Donations Continues
Help us help our neighbors in need. Donate necessities and leave them in the plastic bins outside of CUUC: socks and underwear; toiletries (soap, shampoo, lotion, etc.); and household cleaning products (laundry detergent, dish soap, cleaners, etc.). In addition to living our mission, helping others feels good — so get out there and make yourself feel good! Call Ray Messing at 914-592-4497 and leave a message so she can pick up and deliver our donations in a timely fashion. Read the full Opportunities for Giving letter here.

Among the many camps, trainings, retreats, and workshops offered is the program our Coming of Age classes attend as part of their journey toward creating a statement of faith.
