Parenthood – What They Fail to Cover in Lamaze Class
Tim Geiselman, Guest Speaker

Parenthood is unique. While it has a clearly defined starting point, it has no end point. It is a journey without an arrival. This service will focus on the open-ended quality of parenthood and the adjustments we’re forced to make along the way. Whether you are a parent or not, we are all touched by this complex cycle, so please attend for the laughs and tears that we will discuss.

Music by Elaine Held, Music Director Emerita, Tom Cioppa

Tim Geiselman has been a congregant at the UUCMC since 2016. In the past he has provided homilies on Anne Frank, Atheism and Imagination. He and his wife Rosane live in Middletown and have one son.
Elaine Held, Music Director Emerita, has been a member of UUCMC for over 25 years. She was the first paid Music Director, and after retiring, she continued to support the music program on a volunteer basis as a member of the Music Committee, playing the organ and piano when needed, and organizing and directing the Sister Singers.
Tom Cioppa is the father of two wonderful kids (now adults), a college  professor, a guitar player, and the husband of UUCMC legend Stacy Abate.

The weekly service and Thursday Tea Time links 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 welcome you into our meetinghouse or you can join us in community from your homes.

June Monthly Theme: RENEWAL

A day when one has not pushed oneself to the limit seems a damaged, damaging day, a sinful day. Not so! The most valuable thing one can do for the psyche, occasionally, is to let it rest, wander, live in the changing light of a room.

May Sarton

Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.

Maya Angelou

Practice not getting frustrated when your daughter takes 45 minutes to walk around the block. Learn something from her unabashed desire to take forever. Follow her lead instead of assuming she’s slowing you down.

Lisa Olivera

You can’t live life at warp speed without warping your soul.

Lance Witt

Even if my body and spirit are asking for a break, I expect myself to power through. But if I power through, I am not leaving room for guidance of the spirit.

Rev. Darcey Laine

Every day is a renewal, every morning the daily miracle. This joy you feel is life.

Gertrude Stein

Humanity is on a treadmill that is moving fast. And if you were to ask, “Where are you going?” The answer may very well be, “I don’t know but I have to get there quickly.”

Betty Goedhart

To be a people of renewal is to ask not simply, “How do I refresh?” but also “How do I return?” The challenge of life is not just about moving forward but moving forward without losing touch with all we have held dear.

Rev. Scott Tayler

All you can do for another person is be an environment in which if they wanted to come up for air, they could.

Ram Dass
