Community has become even more important in these challenging times.

This week, October 25th, we will offer a LIVE service at 10:30am: Remembering All Souls. Please do join us!

We gather Sunday morning 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.

October Monthly Theme: DEEP LISTENING

The first duty of love is to listen.

Paul Tillich

Caring people “listen to” while opportunists “listen for.”

Alan Robert Neal

One of my patients told me that when she tried to tell her story people often interrupted her to tell her that they once had something just like that happen to them. Subtly her pain became a story about themselves. Eventually she stopped talking to most people. It was just too lonely.

Rachel Naomi Remen

To listen is very hard, because it asks of us so much interior stability that we no longer need to prove ourselves by speeches, arguments, statements, or declarations. True listeners no longer have an inner need to make their presence known. They are free to receive, to welcome, to accept.

Henri Nouwen

There is a quality of listening that is possible among a circle of human beings, who by their attentiveness to one another create a space in which each person is able to give voice to the truth of his or her life. There is the miracle of authentic narrative, made possible by listening that holds still long enough to let our truth be told.

Rebecca Parker

Being heard is so close to being loved that for the average person they are almost indistinguishable.

David Augsburger

Our listening creates sanctuary for the homeless parts within the other person.

Rachel Naomi Remen

When someone deeply listens to you it is like holding out a dented cup you’ve had since childhood and watching it fill up with cold, fresh water.

John Fox

Before I can tell my life what I want to do with it, I must listen to my life telling me who I am.

Parker Palmer

I sometimes wake in the early morning & listen to the soft breathing of my children & I think to myself; this is one thing I will never regret & I carry that quiet with me all day long.
