The 21-Day Challenge – What We Learned

by Rev. Leland Bond-Upson

This past December, a group of 17 UUCE members and friends participated in the YWCA’s 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge. During this 4-week exploration, we dedicated time and space to build more effective social justice habits related to race, power, privilege, and leadership. This Service will feature participants speaking of what they experienced as a result of this exploration.

Roots of our Faith: Atheism and Agnosticism

by Rev. Leland Bond-Upson

Atheists boldly deny the existence of God or gods.  Agnostics less boldly say that they don’t know or they can’t really say for certain. This Service will lay out these related forms of lack of traditional faith.  And there will be a surprise presentation of a forward-looking, alternative view of God.

UUCE – Where We Are and Where We’re Going

by the Board of Trustees

As an independent “congregationalist” church (in the polity-sense, not the Protestant-sense), our congregation has given the responsibility of managing the direction of our church to our elected Board of Trustees. This week’s service is an opportunity for the Board to relay their progress on a number of initiatives that will shape the future of our church.

Roots of our Faith: Humanism

by Rev. Leland Bond-Upson

This root of our faith has grown since the 1930s, and forms a large part of current UUism.  The name ‘Humanism’ was chosen because of its powerful simplicity.  Humanism makes humanity its priority,, rather than God or Jesus or the saints, or the Earth.  There are two main divisions:  religious Humanism, and secular Humanism, and UUs who think of themselves as Humanists populate a broad spectrum of belief.
