"Be Careful What You Pray For"
Sunday, May 22 — As Unitarian Universalists, we are a people of hope. Whether we name them wishes or dreams or prayers, we each have longings for a better tomorrow. Where do these feelings come from, and to what or whom are they addressed? Do they make any difference? What might they teach us about ourselves? Led by Kirk Freeman for his final sermon with UUCR as our Ministerial Intern.
 
Music led by the members of WildBerry Jam, with special selections by Dick Gilbert on piano.
 
First Fifteen—Three to four Sundays a month, all ages* join in worship in the Sanctuary for the “First Fifteen” minutes, after which children aged 5-11 follow their teachers to their classroom. Parents are asked to sign their children out from classes ten minutes after the end of worship.
*The Family Room at the back of the Sanctuary is available for parents and infants or very young children; it is now set up with some toddler-appropriate toys and activities.
"Legacy Sunday"
Sunday, May 29 — As we bring our spiritual theme of the month, Beauty, to a close, we turn to witnessing the sacred in our everyday lives by remembering our beloved kin who have died and those who have gone before us to make this possible. With gratitude for lives well lived and tender hearts still grieving, we honor Legacy Sunday. Led by Rev. Dr. Rebekah A. Savage.
 
The UUCR Community Choir will sing, with Stephen Crisp, tenor, and Justin Furnia on piano.
 
Special Programming—Children aged 5-11 will gather outdoors (weather-permitting) for special activities.
The Family Room at the back of the Sanctuary is available for parents and infants or very young children who would like to attend the worship service; it is now set up with some toddler-appropriate toys and activities.
