    February Ministry Theme: The Inward Journey

    Words to Live By
     “There are no shortcuts to anyplace worth going to.”
    - Timber Hawkeye, Buddhist Boot Camp

    February 7   “Climbing Down the Mountain”  
    Worship Leader: Reverend Carolyn Patierno
    The inward journey is often depicted as climbing up, up, up … when more often it is in the depth of life, in the muck, that we find our most authentic selves.  I’ll be leaning heavily on the teachings of Pema Chodron, Tibetan Buddhist nun.

    Elizabeth Bull provides ASL interpretation at first service.


    February 14    “Love, Actually”  
    Worship Leader: Reverend Carolyn Patierno.
    The name of a popular movie that is both loved and reviled.  Kind of like Valentine’s Day.  We’re going to strive to strike a balance.  Deep in winter we’ll hold close the warmth and melody of love. 


    February 21  “Surrender: In Search of the Present Moment” 
    Guest Preacher:  Reverend Josh Pawelek       
    Worship Leader:  Suzanne Wingrove-Haugland

    Pulpit Exchange:  Reverend Carolyn will preach at UU Society: East in Manchester and Reverend Josh Pawelek will join us in New London

     "Surrender" - “let go”- “let it be”- “embrace life as it is.”  We encounter these words and phrases often just when we need to hear them. They offer solid spiritual advice in many life situations. But a deeper question often goes unasked and unanswered: How do I surrender? Rev. Josh offers thoughts. 

    Good Neighbor Offering:  Norwich / New London Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)

    February 28      Exodus 30:11–34:35        
    Guest Preacher:  Rabbi Rachel Safman 
    Worship Leader:  Mark Robel

    Rabbi Safman of Congregation Beth El in New London will engage with the Torah portion for this weekend:  a story about mercy and a new covenant.
