Sunday, Aug 2Service: Vacation Parallax
Judy Weiskopf

Judy will lead a light-hearted service about vacations, packing, and our Third Principle. You will be invited (but not required) to share your thoughts about "Why do you take a vacation?"

Sunday, Aug 9Service: Sabbath in the Age of Consumption
Oscar Sinclair

We live in an increasingly acquisitive world, focused on consuming, and aspiring to greater wealth. Malls, movie theaters, and stadiums stand as "cathedrals of consumption," glorifying our material culture and pushing us to always want more. What then, can we find in Rabbi Abraham Heschel's description of the Sabbath as countercultural: a cathedral built not of things, but of time?

Sunday, Aug 23Service: This is the Moral Moment
Rev. Dr. Terence Ellen

The Pope's new encyclical has dramatically changed the moral atmosphere surrounding the climate crisis.  With this, his coming visits to Congress and the United Nations in September, and the approaching December international meeting in Paris, we are all presented with a unique, historic moment to change the present woeful response of our country to our unprecedented situation. I would also like to share other signs for hope arising in these dire circumstances and how together we Unitarian Universalists can live up to the promise of our religious movement on behalf to all the most vulnerable - kids, marginalized people, the other species, and us all.

Sunday, Aug 30Service: Aging Well
Eileen McIntyre

Act your age. Skydive at 90. Run marathons at 100. Work at the job you love till you drop. Blaze your own path through the minefield of stereotypes, expectations and attitudes that insist on you being predictable and conforming to type. With a growing number of people living past 100, it’s time to make sure the last third of a lifetime is as full of achievement as the first two-thirds.

Welcome!

You’ve found your way to a remarkable congregation practicing a remarkable religion. Unitarian Universalism is a liberal, creedless faith, born out of the Judeo-Christian tradition, that takes two tasks to heart: freely exploring spiritual truth, using a broad range of religious sources and our own inspiration and reason as guides; and loving our neighbors without qualification, as best as we are able. At Sugarloaf in particular, you’ll find a range of people from a variety of backgrounds who come together regularly to celebrate what’s most important to them, support each other in life’s hard moments, and to be a part of a community that matters and cares.

Sugarloaf is located in an idyllic setting and is filled with friendly people. We invite you to come and experience our religious community at Sunday worship. You are welcome here whoever you are: however old or young, wherever you are from, whoever your ancestors were, and in whatever religion you were raised. You are welcome here whatever your gender and whomever you love. You are welcome with whatever abilities and limitations you have. We invite you to bring your whole self.* We know that your presence will enrich the Sugarloaf community – and that Sugarloaf will become a special place for you, too.

If you have any questions about the Sugarloaf Congregation of Unitarian Universalists, Unitarian Universalism in general, or just want further information, please don’t hesitate to call or email me. Better yet, just come down on Sunday morning and see what we have to offer. You’ll be glad you did.

See you at Sugarloaf,
Megan
