Worship Team Update

The Worship Team met Wednesday, and the news from that meeting is that we are scheduling two mini-series of Services between now and June. One series will be dedicated to racial justice and injustice, and not only for Black Folk. We will have one a month for at least 3 months. Likewise, we will have a series on the cluster of subjects that deal with gender and sexuality. We will likewise have one a month on these subjects and other related ones, including abortion, and the trending issues surrounding transgenderism.

There is renewed interest in paganism, and the celebrations they observe, the Worship Team hopes they will lead or participate in one or more of the eight Celtic pagan calendar observances: the four key solar events (two equinoxes and two solstices), plus the four ‘cross-quarter’ days of the pagan calendar:  Imbolc, aka Candlemas, aka Brigid’s Day, aka Groundhog Day, Beltaine, aka May Day, Lughnasadh, aka Lammas,  and Samhain (‘SOW-en’), aka Hallowe’en. Diana Heizer is drumming up interest in reconstituting a pagan interest group at UUCE. Watch the website for more information.

By the way, the Worship Team and I are always open to your suggestions for Service topics.

    Today the term transgenderism is considered offensive. A more respectful term would be transgender issues. One problem with the term transgenderism is explained by the first link below. There are other reasons but this is a place to start. The second link is a beginning explanation of what to call trans people.

      Thank you. I learn something new all the time. So far, I have been careful and correct and supportive, I think, with my nephew announcing last month that she is a woman.
