NEXT FEW SUNDAYS
May Worship Services
May 1 Credo Sunday—Our Coming of Age Youth
Each year we encourage our eighth graders to take part in a Coming of Age program, spending the year in contemplation of their deepest values. This Sunday they share their credo statements with all of us in this heartfelt worship service.
May 8 Flower Communion—Katy Carpman
Every Spring Unitarian Universalist congregations take part in this ritual of sharing. Bring a flower or five as we celebrate the gifts of community.
May 15 Music Sunday: Creativity and the Art of Living—Adrian Rodriguez
What is creativity, where does it come from, and what are its implications on mastering the art of living? Come join the Emerson Choir, the Emerson Intergenerational Orchestra, and the Austin High School Chamber singers as we engage with the Fauré Requiem as an opportunity to connect with our humanity.
May 22 Surviving AIDS—Ken McLeod
Thirty-five years ago the world changed radically for many people when a tiny article appeared about a small group of gay men with a rare illness. ALL of us have had various adjustments to make in the face of AIDS. Today, long term survivors of HIV struggle with multiple issues, both concrete and emotional. Those who are HIV- but were at risk had their lives changed, too. Indeed, the culture at large has been changed by this illness and the issues it raised for us all. This sermon looks back and looks at today as we consider AIDS' impact.
May 29 Memorial Day Taize Service—April DeConick and Stephen Lipp
This service will remember and honor those who died while serving in the armed forces. The simple music of Taize and the quiet moments of contemplation will help us recall our heroes and the sacrifices that they made for our nation. Together we will build a rock sculpture to honor their memory and light candles of hope.
