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.

January Monthly Theme: IMAGINATION

They are ill discoverers that think there is no land when they see nothing but sea.

Francis Bacon

Imagination is a danger, thus every totalitarian regime is frightened of the artist. It is the vocation of the prophet to keep alive the ministry of imagination to keep on conjuring and proposing alternative futures to the single one the king wants to urge as the only thinkable one.

Walter Brueggemann

Our imagination flies—we are its shadow on the earth.

Vladimir Nabokov

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.

Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss)

My favorite Baldwin quote is, “The interior life is the real life….The intangible dreams of a person may have a tangible effect on the world.” It’s basically saying, what one can imagine, internally, what one can think about when nobody knows, when nobody’s around, one’s secrets, could shift human life. What an amazing thing.

Jason Reynolds

Fairy Tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us dragons can be beaten.

G. K. Chesterton

You can either think that the world is getting better or that the future will be much better than it is now, or you can think that the world is getting worse. But that continuum isn’t as important to me, actually, as this idea of, do you think you have agency in this world that is either getting better or worse?

Angela Oguntala

History is a living weapon in your hand & you have imagined it.

Diane Di Prima

Live out of your imagination, not your history.

Stephen R. Covey

Every single one of us knows what it is like to bleed. In one respect pain is a gift because it cultivates our imagination. Without it, we would be far less likely to rail at deprivation or shrink from cruelty. Of course, not everyone derives sympathy from suffering. But the religious imagination contends that in the heart of every stranger lurks a reflection of our own.

Rev. Dr. William F. Schulz

Imagination is one of the spoils of colonization, which in many ways is claiming who gets to imagine the future for a given geography. Losing our imagination is a symptom of trauma. Reclaiming the right to dream the future, strengthening the muscle to imagine together as Black people, is a revolutionary decolonizing activity.
