Building Beloved Community, Cultivating Connections

January 22, 2017

Worship service 10:45 - 11:45, followed by a social hour.

Class, Classism and UU principles: An Introduction
Worship leaders - Beverly Boido and De Brewer

“Today there is a serious dialogue happening in our county about the growing inequality between the very rich and the rest—the one percent and the ninety-nine percent. Escalating inequality has profound implications for the health of our communities, the living standards of the people in our country, the future prospects for our children, and the distribution of political power going forward.

As Unitarian Universalists, we aspire to live out our seven Principles in the world, in our religious communities, and in our hearts. UU Class Conversations believes that each of our Principles calls us to engage in this work around class. In particular, we believe that becoming a class-aware and class-inclusive religious community is deeply spiritual work. We believe that diversity makes us stronger—connecting us to the world.”

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.

The Freedom Club

On October 9, UUCC enjoyed a terrific presentation by the Freedom Club, a UUSS youth group (mostly 10 to 12 year-olds.) Petra Stanton, UUSS member, mentors the group and coordinated their presentation. Said one young person, "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 was an informative and exciting opportunity to learn and be inspired by youth who are really active in UU values.

The Threshold Choir

UUCC was very happy to welcome the Threshold Choir of Sacramento on Sunday, September 25. Seven members of the local chapter of this international nonprofit were able to join us in order to demonstrate how they bring comfort to those at life’s thresholds through the gift of gentle song. Threshold choirs are a relatively new manifestation of an ancient tradition. In the 16 years since the first group of singers gathered in the Bay Area of California, 150 more chapters have formed throughout the world. They sing lullabye-like songs at the bedsides of those in hospice, but also for preemies in intensive care and for the families of the babies, as well as for those going through other difficult emotional times. One of our UUCC members who is going through a difficult time with her physical health graciously offered to lie in the visiting group’s zero-gravity rehearsal chair in the center of our circle. The choir sang quietly to her and to all of us, allowing us to truly experience that music calms and heals. Thank you to the Threshold Choir for your presence with us. Threshold Choir singers do not perform publicly as a traditional choir would. When they are summoned to a bedside, they normally sing as a group of two or three. The co-founder of the Sacramento chapter says that, for Threshold singers, a “standing ovation” is when the person they sing to falls asleep.
