Sun Aug 14, “Religious Humanism: A Colorful Thread in the Tapestry of Our Faith”
Rev. LoraKim Joyner, guest speaker

Religious Humanism has been a part of our UU tradition going back to the Transcendentalists. Join CUUC member Audra Russell on a journey to explore a brief history of Humanism, how UUs were instrumental in the articulation of Humanist beliefs in modern times, and my path in religious naturalism. Audra looks forward to walking this trail with you. Audra Russell has been a UU for almost 30 years. She joined CUUC in 2016 after relocating from Long Island with her husband, Anthony. They currently live in downtown White Plains. At CUUC, Audra has been on the Strategic Planning committee and Building committee. She is currently working on the Website Revision committee, the CUUC Playground project, and the newly formed Reproductive Justice social justice team.

Services (Sundays at 10:00am)

This Sunday

    • August 14:  Audra Russell

    • “Religious Humanism: A Colorful Thread in the Tapestry of Our Faith”: Religious Humanism has been a part of our UU tradition going back to the Transcendentalists. Join CUUC member Audra Russell on a journey to explore a brief history of Humanism, how UUs were instrumental in the articulation of Humanist beliefs in modern times, and my path in religious naturalism.

Upcoming Sundays

  • August 21:  Rev. Meredith Garmon

  • “Laughing, Dancing, Serving”:
  • August 28:  Rev. Kimberley Debus

  • “Crossing the New Bridge”: You would think, given the last few years, we would be adept at change, even change we actually do expect. And still, our agility and resilience have been so constantly tried, we may need to reset our minds and spirits as we welcome positive changes. In this service, we will explore some approaches to change in our world, our communities, and ourselves. (Rev. Kimberley Debus is a community minister based in Takoma Park, MD, inspiring an artful and art-filled faith. She consults with congregations and religious professionals throughout the denomination. She is joyfully affiliated with the Unitarian Church of Lincoln, NE, and has previously served at the Church of the Larger Fellowship as well as congregations on Long Island and Key West. In 2019-2020, Kimberley served as the sabbatical minister at CUUC.)
