March 7 – “Engaging One Another” Rev. Mark Skrabacz.
As we work together to build a diverse Beloved Community and restore hope to the notion that we are not meant to live in separation by color, belief, gender, politics and so much more, we need to include a new and strange ally—our willingness to turn to one another—no matter what. This includes our willingness to have our beliefs and ideas challenged by what others think. No one person or perspective or culture can give us the answers we need to the problems of today.
March 14 –“The Courage to Create” with Katie Evans and Rev. Mark Skrabacz.
Music performed by Jaime Ramirez and Tavis McGeachin. Courage according to Aristotle, is the first of all virtues. Because without courage, none of the other virtues would be possible. Would you believe that vulnerability is our most accurate measure of courage? Today we will examine the values of innovation, creativity and change that comprise our vulnerability. Today our Social Justice Committee will present its annual Courageous Love Awards to Assistant City Manager Dr. Colleen Bridger, as Pandemic Incident Commander and for furthering the City’s Commission on Domestic Violence, and to Ms. Ananda Tomas for her groundbreaking work with FixSAPD.
March 21 – “Living in Balance” with Rev. Mark Skrabacz.
Today we celebrate the Spring Equinox and the balance of Day and Night. Learning from the healing professions, our primary concern must be to “do no harm.” This is necessary to maintain the integral well-being of our planet. Not even with all our medical and health-care sciences and technologies can we establish well human beings on a sick planet. I invite you to join with me in crossing that tipping point to live in harmony with and celebrate our respect for the interdependent web of all existence.
March 28 “Transgender Visibility” with our Trans & Non-Binary Support Group (TANG) – Service Title and Description to be announced.
April 4 “A Theology of Hope” with Rev. Mark Skrabacz.
Theology, the study of God, has evolved and devolved over time. Early Christian leaders taught that gentleness was more powerful than violence, compassion stronger than cruelty, and love more lasting than death. These were radical ideas in the 4th and 5th century, as they are today. Let’s examine these ideas in contrast to those of an angry and vengeful God, as we celebrate the renewal of life at Easter.
April 11 “The Five Smooth Stones of our Faith” with Rev. Mark Skrabacz.
The Hebrew Bible tells the story of the young Israelite David who slew the fearsome Philistine giant Goliath in one-on-one combat with his weapons of five smooth stones and a sling. The small stones turned out to be powerful ammunition. What do we have to overcome our own doubts and challenges? Let’s join together today to deepen our understanding of five component parts of our Unitarian Universalist Faith journey.
April 18 “Restoring the Living Soil” with our Green Team (Chris Lopez, Worship Coordinator).
April 25 TBA with S.A.G.E. (Esperanza Garza-Danweber, Worship Coordinator).
