October Ministry Theme:
Atonement

“I am not a saint, unless you think of a saint as
a sinner who keeps on trying.” Nelson Mandela

 

October 5
"Keep on Trying"
Worship Leader: Reverend Carolyn Patierno
We seem to forgive others much more easily than we forgive ourselves. But as Nelson Mandela said – of all people – a saint is simply a sinner who keeps on trying. We’ll reflect on being compassionate for our own selves as we keep on trying.

American Sign Language interpretation will be provided by Elizabeth Bull.

October 12
“The Doctrine of Discovery Today”
Worship Leader: Reverend Carolyn Patierno

This Doctrine led to the unjust treatment of indigenous people world-wide. We’ll consider the matter of atonement in light of the often brutal treatment suffered by Native Americans in this country.

October 19
"Environmental Justice"
Worship Leader: Rebecca Bryan
Guest Speaker: Reverend Robert F. Murphy

Unitarian Universalists are concerned about human rights and we’re concerned about environmental protection. What happens when we bring all of our principles and concerns together? Saint James Episcopal, New London, is hosting the New England regional conference (October 17-19) on environmental justice. Reverend Bob Murphy, who is one of the organizers, will be our speaker today. He’s a Unitarian Universalist minister who is involved in an unusual and controversial ministry.

"Blue Boat Home"
Worship Leader: Rebecca Bryan
Join with other Souls as we remember those who have died. Whether this year, or many moons ago, our love goes on. Bring along friends or family, come together as we sing, reminisce and affirm.

 

Wednesday, October 29: 5:30 Children’s service & 7 p.m.

Samhain Vesper Service - Huntington Street Chapel
Samhain is the Pagan festival of Celtic origin that honors the harvest and the New Year. It is also a time for honoring our dearly departed. All of these themes are woven together for a lovely evening of reflection and celebration. Vespers is traditionally an evening service that is contemplative in nature. With a combination of story, poetry, and music we are able to glean the wisdom of Samhain while we allow the beauty of the service to have its way within our hearts and minds. You are invited to bring a photo of a dearly departed loved one for the altar.
