Water Communion Sunday The children will be with us for our annual Labor Day/Water Communion ceremony. Members and friends bring water (from the places you’ve traveled to during the summer or simply tap water from home that represents change in your life) and pour it into a common container as you share its significance to you.
We will have a Beyond-These-Four-Walls presentation on the HOPES Center of Racine, which is our offertory-outreach recipient for September.
Note: This is our last one-service Sunday. Next week we go back to our regular schedule of both 9 and 11 a.m. services.
Sunday, September 11, 2016 – Resume 9 and 11 a.m. services
On this, our first 2-service Sunday, Tony’s sermon will explore the limits of human knowledge iwth a grandiose-sounding title that loosely translates as “knowing what you don’t know.” In many ways this concept is the hallmark of our UU faith – and its hardest virtue to emulate!
Since this is the first Sunday of the church year, it is also Opportunity Sunday (where you can learn about the various groups, events, and opportunities OBUUC provides). Today is also the “official” beginning of Dress-Up Sunday. That is, feel free to dress up for church if that is something you’d like to do!
Sunday, September 18, 2016 – 9 and 11 a.m.
“Star-Bellied or Not, Welcome!”
At this service to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his death on September 24, 1991 (actual anniversary is this coming Saturday), we explore the “theology” of the Unitarian writer Theodore Geisel – better known as Dr. Seuss, with special music from our Olympia Brown (Adult) Choir!
Sunday, September 25, 2016 – 9 and 11 a.m.
“Teachers Without Knowing It” Our high-school youth will help us celebrate the birthday of Confucius (Kong-fu-zi), as part of their life-cycle ceremony.” Because Confucius’ birthday is celebrated as Teachers Day in Taiwan and in parts of China, Tony’s sermon will explore the people who teach us all our lives, whom we often don’t recognize at the time (and who themselves sometimes don’t recognize it either). *For those with breathing issues, this service will include a small amount of incense at the beginning.
