Ethical Eating – Food and Religion Reconsidered
Worship Leader: Susan Lange
As a follow-up to a thought-provoking service led by Ken Newman about a plant-based whole-food diet, we consider the question of ethical eating. What is our spiritual connection to the food we eat in a culture of over-processed foods? ...Michael Pollan writes, “try this: Don’t eat anything your great-great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.”
Bread communion will also be celebrated.

Threshold Choir
We look forward to hosting members of the Threshold Choir of Sacramento. The Threshold Choir is a choir of women who gather to provide comfort through a cappella singing at the bedsides of those at any of life's thresholds; in hospitals, in rehabilitation centers, and in hospices. They give their gift in small groups of two to four, offering soft, restful lullabies in short sessions that are designed to ease physical and emotional stress. We will learn something of the start of Threshold Choirs who now sing in over 150 communities throughout the world. We will be able to experience for ourselves the gentle singing of a threshold choir as they sing for, and with us, in a demonstration of the service and mission they fulfill.

Meeting location

Statement of Shared Ministry

Our congregation welcomes all to build the Beloved Community, cultivating connections with each other, the Earth and the sacred within.

Children at UUCC

Children are a welcome part of our service. We have created a Play Place in the corner of our Sanctuary with games, toys, and books for our younger congregants. We look forward to having whisperers and wigglers as part of our community too.

Please note: the Freedom Club service will be on October 9, 2016

The Freedom Club of UUSS, a youth group (mostly 10 to 12 year-olds) at UUSS, will be leading our service to talk about the work they do. Petra Stanton, UUSS member, mentors the group and will be coordinating their presentation. "The Freedom Club does lots of things trying to free slaves. So far, we have freed about 30 people that were once slaves." Some members of the group were recently in India to see firsthand the importance of the work they do. The Freedom Club has also had a legislative advocacy meeting with Congressman Ami Bera to ask him to sponsor a bill to keep slavery out of the supply chain. This service ill be an informative and exciting opportunity to learn and be inspired by youth who are really active in UU values.
