11:00 Service ~ Quest for Waters of Life: A Water In-gathering Multigenerational Service

pouring-water5Please bring a small quantity of water that will be added to a common bowl representing the diversity and unity of our UUCC community. As individuals contribute the water, each person, one by one, will name the place of his/her birth or the place of heritage. Please note the change from speaking of summer travels. The water is then blessed by the congregation, later boiled, and used in child dedication ceremonies and similar events.

Presented by: Working on Worship Committee, coordinated by Anne Johnson

11:00 am ~ Gather the Spirit

uu_spiritThis song in our hymnal written by UU songwriter, Jim Scott, is the inspiration for this sermon. We gather to kindle one flame as we begin our second year together, to nurture, to celebrate, and to gather the “seeds for the sowing.”

Gather the spirit, harvest the power. Our separate fires will kindle one flame. Witness the mystery of this hour. Our trials in this light appear all the same. Gather in peace, gather in thanks. Gather in sympathy now and then. Gather in hope compassion and strength. Gather to celebrate once again. Gather the spirit of heart and mind. Seeds for the sowing are laid in store. Nurtured in love and conscience refined, With body and spirit united once more.
