UUCMC Sunday Service Livestreamed from the Meetinghouse

The Advent of Hanukkah                                        Rev. Dr. Craig Rubano 

On the first Sunday of the Christian season of Advent, and with Hanukkah beginning Sunday evening, this service will celebrate a time of year when we are asked to slow down and dedicate our attention to our lives together in community, as we gather inspiration from beloved stories of old.

Music: Dr. Louise Chernosky, Dr. David and Sarah Fischell

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.

November Theme: Holding History

To acknowledge our ancestors means we are aware that we did not make ourselves.

Alice Walker

History is written by the victors.

Author unknown

History is written by everyone. The more accurate quote would be, “History is temporarily twisted by people who’re going to profit from it in the short term.”

Subham Jain

There is a lie some Americans tell themselves when America is on its worst behavior: “This isn’t America!” or “This isn’t who we are!” or “We’re better than this!”

Sam Sanders

The prophetic tasks of the church are to tell the truth in a society that lives in an illusion, grieve in a society that practices denial, and express hope in a society that lives in despair.

Walter Brueggemann

In times like these, I look to the past. I come from people not meant to survive, and here is our bloodline, stronger than ever.

Brittany Packnett

Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes—our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking around.

G. K. Chesterton

We are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise, they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind’s door at 4 a.m. of a bad night and demand to know who deserted them.

Joan Didion

Memory invites us to maintain our grip on the past, but it also calls us to pay attention to who we are in the present. Memory’s question is not just “Do you remember?” but “How do you want to be remembered?”

Rev. Scott Tayler

Someone once told me the definition of hell; on your last day on earth, the person you could have become will meet the person you became.

Anonymous

I am sitting here wanting memories to teach me
to see the beauty in the world through my own eyes.
Since you’ve gone and left me, there’s been so little beauty,
but I know I saw it clearly through your eyes…

Ysaye M. Barnwell
