This Sunday

    • June 25:  Mary Lane Cobb, Tara James, Amy Nathan

    • Juneteenth: Our annual observance of the holiday commemorating the end of slavery after the Civil War. We feature readings on the topic of freedom, including the narrative of Virtue Lane, Mary Lane Cobb's great-grandmother, and musical interludes by Mary and by noted drummers John and Marthalene Grady, who will also lead a West African drumming workshop for all ages at the end of the service.

Upcoming Sundays

  • July 2:  Denice Tomlinson and CUUC delegates

  • Reflections on GA: Our annual UU convention, General Assembly (GA), was held in New Orleans this June. In this service, our delegates reflect on the major events and themes and how these are relevant to our CUUC life. (Denice is a longtime member who has been a CUUC delegate at many General Assemblies.)
  • July 9:  Leonisa Ardizzone

  • Say Yes:
  • July 16:  Karen Leahy

  • Making Sense of Life's Changes: Drawing especially from William Bridges' book "Transitions," this service explores strategies for dealing with challenging times of transition in our lives. (Karen is a CUUC member and author of the award-winning memoir, "The Summer of Yes: An Ex-Nun’s Story.")
  • July 23:  Rev. ReBecca Sala

  • How the Light Gets In: This service explores the power of hope and how it can help when we are bombarded with negativity. (Rev. Sala is the Affiliated Community Minister at UUFNW Mt Kisco, and Manager of Pastoral Care at Stamford Hospital.)
  • July 30:  Kevin Jagoe

  • Community Can Be Holy Now: In our current religious, political, and social landscape it can be challenging to create or find places that are safe. In our covenantal tradition, the very act of gathering together is a religious and holy one. So how do we create community that is ever more expansive? (Kevin serves First Unitarian Congregational Society in Brooklyn as their Ministerial Intern.)
  • August 6:  Cat Guthrie

  • Harmony: This interactive worship explores harmony, the great equalizer where each voice is as important as every other. Cat believes that singing together improves our health and may just help change our world. (Cat leads harmony workshops at corporations, directs three community choruses as well as the Threshold Choir serving hospice patients, and is a member of BlisSing, a sacred singing duo.)
  • August 13:  Barbara Lowney & Paula Meighan

  • Refugee Resettlement: The CUUC Refugee Resettlement social justice team will discuss their efforts, along with an interfaith coalition, to help a refugee family settle in Westchester. A group of 50 CUUC members and friends are working on this project. (CUUC members Barbara and Paula are chairs of the Refugee Resettlement social justice team.)
