Aaron Norris, Ministerial Resident

Continuing our explorations as a Community of Covenant, we will look at what it means to be engaged in a living relationship that transcends mere transactions and what happens when relationships become stressed or even break down. What does this mean for our covenant? How do we rebuild and revisit our relationship at that moment? Part of the answer lies in understanding the nature of human relationships and the difference between transaction, contract, and covenant - and the importance of redemption, mercy, and forgiveness

This year, we will be following Theme Based Ministry themes from a Unitarian Universalist collaborative ministry, Soul Matters Sharing Circle. Over 190 congregations participate! The themes follow the pattern “A Community of ______.” Join us for the first in the series, A Community of Covenant. Our covenant is not a once for all time agreement. Rather, it is a process of committing to one another and to shared agreements thoughtfully and lovingly. Like the body, a covenant needs nurture, exercise, and regular checkups to remain healthy. Together, we are working out our covenant.

Life is full of twists and turns. We can expect many things to turn out as we desire, yet we must also know that some will not. Part of the role of this beloved community is to remind us again and again that our task is not to be perfect, not to know everything, not to predict perfectly, but to be humble and human together. Love is the spirit of this church. Love will guide us.

Come to celebrate the first service in our home away from home, Hamilton Middle School! Our annual Water Communion is the mingling of waters from summer travels or summer at home. Please bring a small amount of water to mingle with the water from others in the congregation. Just as our waters come together to form a greater whole, so, too, do we come together to begin another season of the life of this church. We are enriched by every person who participates. We hope you will join us

Join us for the last service in our current building before construction begins. As we prepare to enter into the gifts and challenges, the known and unknown of the year, we pause to proclaim that our sanctuary is the people. Together, we are venturing out on a journey that will shape and bless this congregation for this and the next generation.

We all begin our lives in the middle of a story that began long before we were born and will continue long after our lives end. With this in mind, congregations are called to engage the past with gratitude and a search for wisdom, the present with energy and purpose, and the future with hope and anticipation. Balancing these is challenging. As we move toward a year of transition, we pause to consider our place in the greater circle of life and in this moment in our congregation’s life.

The human experience compels people to claim membership in nations across this earth with common histories and mythologies about them as a people. In this way, America is no different. However, there are truly unique things about the American experience that make her people unlike any other. This is both our blessing and our curse as we wrestle with our own mythologies and the call to “Make America Great Again!” Like people themselves, nations are in constant transformation, a circle of life, born and reborn. Aaron will explore our nation’s place on the wheel and what it might bode for the future.

Join us as we explore the theme for June, Prophetic Imperative. We all carry a calling to improve the world, speak truth to power, walk humbly, live with compassion, and to expand our knowledge and wisdom. Unitarian Universalist minister, Rev. Richard Gilbert, wrote of the prophetic imperative that is foundational to our denomination. It is a calling to live well and to use our talents and skills to enrich our society by sharing the work of correcting injustice wherever it is found. This work invites us to examine our world, consider our place within it, and take action to heal the world.

Join us for a service honoring the roots of Memorial Day.  The day can be interpreted as an invitation to remember those who gave their all to protect freedom, justice, and equity for all.  Some of those we honor fell in the service of our nation at war.  Expanding the circle, we also remember those who spent their lives in service to their values and communities to improve the world.  In this service, we will honor the completion of Aaron Norris’ Ministerial Internship. He will remain with us as our Ministerial Resident, for which we are grateful.

Homeless persons recently experienced a major set back when Denver officials performed “sweeps” of Denver streets resulting in the loss of critical possessions for our community’s most vulnerable people. This year’s all church social justice project on May 22nd will give our members the opportunity to learn more about this issue and to contribute needed items to benefit those affected by homelessness. Come for a service exploring homelessness through the lens of our monthly theme, “acceptance,” and stay for activities after the service.
