Upcoming Services

Saturday, November 1, 7:00 p.m.
"Wheel of the Year Samhain/All Hallows Celebration" with Diana Hartman

At this time when the veil is thin between worlds, we will draw upon the gifts of our ancestors to inspire us in these challenging times. Please bring photos of ancestors for the altar and finger food to share after the event. Festive clothing encouraged.

Samhain, in the Northern Hemisphere, marks the final harvest for the growing cycle. As the old passes away and a window opens for the new to enter, it is said that the veils between the worlds (the old and the new) become thin. Cross-culturally, this is a time to honor the past and our ancestors, which explains the origins of Halloween costumes that look like ghosts and skeletons. Samhain also marks the beginning of the three darkest months of the year (solar winter).

Sunday, November 2, 9:30 a.m. & 11:00 a.m.
"The Importance and Imperative of Difference" with Rev. Jill McAllister

Hinduism is no one thing. Like many long traditions, it encompasses an immeasurable variety of philosophies, doctrines, rituals, perspectives, and practices. It is in itself a multi-faith, multi-cultural tradition, which can provide much encouragement and insight for us as we undertake to build our skills at living in right relations in a multi-cultural world.

* Childcare for Infants and Toddlers is provided at both services.
* Religious Exploration classes are available for Children and Youth during the 11AM service.
* Recordings of previous services are found in our Sermon Archive.

Sunday, November 2, 7:00 p.m.
"An Evening of Music, Myth, Mantra, Movement, and Meditation" with Rhythmantra

November is our month to explore Hinduism at UUFC. Kirtan is a call-and-response singing and storytelling experience from India's bhakti devotional tradition. We are fortunate to invite one of Oregon's premier kirtan groups to lead us in a joyous heart-opening community experience: Rhythmantra is a unique and multifaceted group composed of Johanna Beekman, Angela Grace, George Beekman, Lyris Cooper, and Sabine Monn. In this special event, Johanna will sing, play, and lead us through original and traditional songs and chants rooted in a variety of spiritual and yogic traditions. Angela will tell stories and provide mythological and spiritual context for the songs. Angela will also introduce movement meditations that she and George developed for their RhythmAsana: Moving Into Deep Joy workshops.
