UUCMC Adopts an Eighth Principle, Committing to Dismantle Racism

Our congregation adopted an Eighth Principle at its congregational meeting on March 14, committing members to work to dismantle racism. The 8th Principle affirms and promotes “journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”

Community has become even more important in these challenging times.

On Sunday mornings at 10:30am we gather on zoom to light our chalice, hear announcements and visit with each other in small groups to check-in, and to discuss a reflection question. It is easy and fun to join in, and ALL are welcome! You can get connection information by signing up for our email, or by contacting the office at uucmc@uucmc.org.

Our Sunday morning Service videos can be accessed at your convenience on our website Worship page or YouTube channel (CLICK HERE).

Dialog happens on TUESDAY evenings at 7pm; check our Dialog page for more information and the schedule.

The weekly service link and community hour link are sent out via email each week. In addition, our weekly eblast that comes out on Thursday mornings has loads of information about UUCMC happenings. If you are not already on our email list, click the button in the footer to sign up. Our Facebook page (click here) is also updated as information unfolds.

We hope you will join us in community from the safety of your homes.

April Monthly Theme: BECOMING

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Anais Nin

Do not ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

Howard Thurman

A person will worship something, have no doubt about that. We may think our tribute is paid in secret in the dark recesses of our hearts, but it will come out. That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives, and our character. Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping, we are becoming.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real….It doesn’t happen all at once. You become. It takes a long time.”

Margery Williams Bianco, The Velveteen Rabbit

If we’re always looking in mirrors—made of glass or social media—and looking outward, we should not be surprised when truly new things don’t want to come through us to be born.

Caitlin Breedlove

There are two questions that [a person] must ask [themselves]. The first is “Where am I going?” and the second is “Who will go with me?” If you ever get these questions in the wrong order, you are in trouble.

Howard Thurman

I believe in waking up in the middle of the night and packing our bags and leaving our worst selves for our better ones.

Leslie Jamison

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity.

Gilda Radner

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost

If we are going to find our way out of shame and back to each other, vulnerability is the path and courage is the light. To set down those lists of *what we’re supposed to be* is brave. To love ourselves and support each other in the process of becoming real is perhaps the greatest single act of daring greatly.
