Services (Sundays at 10:00am)

This Sunday

    • July 21:  Ray Schmitt

    • “Science, Religion, Conflict, and Politicization”: Since the days of Galileo, science and religion have been in conflict, and that’s okay. But the rejection of scientific understanding and advancement is not. How did we get here? How have leading scientists struggled with this conflict? And what might we do? (Ray Schmitt has been a member of CUUC since 2005.)

Upcoming Sundays

  • July 28:  Rev. Catherine Torpey

  • "Unearthing Miracles": One of the covenants that Unitarian Universalist congregations make to one another is "encouragement to spiritual growth." Growth is something we tend to want, and can't tend to force. The best we can do is to create the conditions, one of which is the ability to find the miraculous. (Rev. Torpey served the South Nassau UU Congregation for nine years and is now the Exec Dir of the International Focusing Institute in Nyack, www.focusing.org.)
  • August 4:  Rev. ReBecca Sala

  • "Finding Peace in Solitude": We explore the nature of loneliness and the difference between being alone and being lonely. Technology is supposed to connect us to the world but can make us feel even more isolated and disconnected. How do we find and appreciate moments of authentic connection with others as well as find peace within ourselves? (Rev. Sala is the Affiliated Community Minister at UUFNW Mt Kisco, and Manager of Pastoral Care at Stamford Hospital.)
  • August 11:  Rev. Jim Walkup

  • "Love, Forgiveness, and Relationship Repair”: (Jim Walkup, a psychotherapist and marriage counselor, is a member of CUUC and the author of "I Do!: A Marriage Workbook for Engaged Couples.")
  • August 18:  Rev. Meredith Garmon

  • TBA:
  • August 25:  Rev. Meredith Garmon

  • "Poetry: Pablo Neruda":
  • September 1:  Carrie McEvoy

  • "The Importance of Sabbath": Labor Day is a holiday when we honor those who fought for workers’ rights — among them the right to time off from work. In this service we’ll explore how sometimes the best way to get work done is to stop working — to take time to rest, reflect, regroup, and recharge. (Carrie McEvoy is a member of The Unitarian Church in Westport, and a student in the Master of Divinity program at Meadville Lombard Theological School.)
