Upcoming Worship Topics
Sunday, November 5 at 10:30 a.m.
"Serving with Grace"
with The Rev. Rachel Allen Baker
How do we move out of a capitalist mindset where we ask 'What does this church do for me" into asking "What can I do to help this congregation fulfill its purpose in the world?" Religious organizations are purpose-driven institutions. The role of Congregants is to serve the mission or purpose of the Congregation. This is the second in the series on moving from iChurch to weChurch.

"Transgender Day of Remembrance"
with Terri Boling & Richard Anderson
Each year on Nov. 20 people across the globe set aside time to memorialize those who have been killed because of anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. Come to UUCLV's vigil.
After the service, you are welcome to join Rev. Rachel for a brief Newcomer Orientation at 11:45 in the library. Let us help you connect with this community as we learn a little more about one another.

When Gratitude Abounds, Happiness Follows
with the Rev. Rachel Allen Baker & Danielle Bell
Let's gather for a multigenerational collaboration as we explore writing as a spiritual practice. All ages can join in for this hands on learning service that will allow participants time to reflect on the idea of "happiness" and participate in a writing exercise, with helpful writing prompts included, that we hope will engage our participants to write Chalice Lightings, Opening Words, Chants, Closing Words, Prayers, Chalice Extinguishing, etc. In honor of our monthly theme, In Care of the Community, these writings will be collected and compiled into a small booklet of readings for our members and friends. Whether new to reading or writing, or a seasoned author, we welcome and encourage all ages and stages to attend.
Sunday, November 26 at 10:30 a.m.
"Staying In It"
with K.C. Slack
Considering the importance of pausing as we rededicate ourselves to life and justice in troubling times. Worship will be led by K.C. Slack. K.C. is a bad fat broad, radical chaplain, rust belt femme, non-traditional self-decorator, abortionista, and Unitarian Universalist scholartivist (scholar, artist, activist, and spiritual leader). They're about all multiple everything: bi/pansexual, polyamorous, and pantheistic. Their work blends their mystic UU Pagan faith, ministry, radical politics, theory, joy, art, and living a queerly fabulous life, with cats, in Los Angeles.
