July Services

Sunday mornings, 10:00 AM

July 6:  "What We Do and Why We Do It!"  Liz Nolan-Greven will try to describe and explain the work her family has been doing in Kenya for the last 21 months. The presentation will include pictures and special music and a special collection for the Sally Test Pediatric Center, an AMPATH associated center which cares for sick and abandoned children in Eldoret, Kenya, where Liz often volunteers.  
July 13:  "What Inspires You?"  The service this Sunday will consist of readings by congregation members and performances by our own musicians, of musical pieces that have a special meaning for them.
July 20:  “Living Mindfully in the Present Moment:  How Children, the Teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, and Eastern Spiritual Practices Have Shaped My Journey”  After a brief summary of early religious life experiences, UUCCI member Susan Burton will focus on how a week-long meditation retreat clarified and deepened her search for truth and meaning.  Her meditational and mindfulness practices during and after this retreat have made her a better Unitarian Universalist.  At the retreat, she was surprised to find that children, once again, played a significant role in her spiritual development.  Simon and Savannah Tunny (her “spiritual” nephew and niece) will help her share this journey.
July 27:  Rev. Dennis McCarty will return for a midsummer service.  Our topic will be, “What Can UUCCI Learn from RWE?”  RWE is Ralph Waldo Emerson, the most influential American thinker of the early-to-mid 1800’s.  He actually trained to be a Unitarian Minister.  He served a church in Boston before turning to essay writing, lecturing, and leading the Transcendentalist movement.  A hundred fifty years later, what can this church learn today, from his wisdom?  Rev. Dennis McCarty will look for parallels and lessons.
