 Spiritual Theme for April:  Renewal

April 2

9:30 and 11:15 a.m.

Renewing Our Commitment To The Inherent Worth And Dignity Of Every Person

Rev. Clare Petersberger, Angela Castillo Epps

Our spiritual theme for April is renewal.  One of the definitions of renewal is "the state of being made new, fresh, or strong again."  Today we reflect on conversations among Unitarian Universalists since last June pertaining to renewing our commitment to the first principle of the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

You'll Never Believe What Happened

Rev. Clare Petersberger, Monica Sweidel

Today Christian congregations are re-telling the story of Jesus' entry into Jerusalem which lead to his challenge of the money changers in the temple.  Tomorrow, Jewish families will re-tell the story of Moses being called by a voice in a burning bush to lead the Jewish people out of slavery in Egypt to freedom in the promised land.  Today we reflect on the power of the stories we tell about resisting injustice and creating a more just world.  We will recognize renewing members, new members and friends supporting the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee.  And we will learn where we are with the project to bring a Syrian refugee to Goucher College.

EASTER

And We Are Put On Earth A Little Space, That We May Learn To...

Rev. Clare Petersberger, Marti Mackenzie and Dan Alper

 This morning we celebrate Easter.  The Rev. Forrest Church once preached, "...if I were only to come to church once a year, I would almost certainly choose Easter."  This morning we look at our own life, death, and legacy through the lens of this ancient story as well as a modern story about one woman's discovery of what gave her life meaning and purpose.


April 23

9:30 and 11:15 a.m.

Environmental Justice and Activism

 

 On this Sunday following Earth Day and between the March for Science and the People's Climate March, we will consider ways to actively address environmental issues and their impacts on communities.  Jennifer Kunze, from Clean Water Action, will speak about efforts to address environmental justice at the local community, state and national levels.  We will also provide updates on the year-old urban gardening partnership between TUUC and Amazing Grace Lutheran Church in East Baltimore.  How can you be involved?

The Call To Care:  No Matter What

Rev. Clare Petersberger, The TUUC Puppet Thing

Today our fifth Sunday offering will go to Planned Parenthood of Maryland to support its mission to "Care:  No Matter What".  What is the origin of this mission?  How does it relate to our society almost a century later?  Where do we feel called to care---no matter what?
