A reflection on impermanence and a celebration of the end of the Capital Campaign phase of out building renovation.
 

This Week

A very special shout out to First Unitarian’s History and Legacy Committee Chair Susan Robertson, who wrote a successful $5000 grant application so First Unitarian can digitize and better preserve its fragile nineteenth- and early twentieth-century records.The grant, from the Colorado Historical Records Advisory Board (CHRAB), stood out as especially compelling due to the rich layer of personalities and anecdotes Susan shared in the application.

Two fabulous groups of volunteers are forming for folks of all ages and levels of experience.  Take this opportunity to meet new people and work together to move our First Unitarian renovation forward.  We need person power. Volunteers under the age of 18 are very welcome with parent permission.

Now is a great time to check the lost and found box at First Unitarian, located right outside the first floor restrooms.  Water bottles especially are overflowing the box. All lost and founds remaining in this area by May 27th will be donated to the free Garage Sale on the 28th. There are also abandoned items in other areas in the building.

Common Ground

 

Common Ground is our Whole Souul Living Theme for March. In a world that insistently tries to divide us from one another, the central proposition of our faith is that, There is a Unity that makes us One.

Whole Souul Economy Circle

Whole Souul Economy Circle
  “I am a human being!”
                                               --Michael Carr, FUSD Member
 
“All the ancient wisdom…tells us that work is necessary to us, as much a part of
our condition as mortality; that good work is our salvation and our joy….”

Divinity

 

Our Whole Souul Living Theme for this month is Divinity. For traditional Christians, the word usually refers to the Christian God or the nature of Jesus. For Jews, divinity could apply to anything from the orthodox God of the Old Testament to the cosmic Ein Sof (without end) of Kabbahlistic teaching. For many Indigenous People, divinity could refer to the animating spirits of nature or the mysterious forces that turn the seasons or the world.

An Open Letter About Brock Turner

This post is not officially from First Unitarian Society of Denver, just a personal statement by Senior Minister, Rev. Mike Morran. 

Truth

The 4th Principle of Unitarian Universalism is: “A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” Certainly there is a category of empirical truth to the physical world. Just as certainly there is a category of more subjective truth that will vary from person to person. Still, in the Unitarian Universalist tradition, we take the question of religious truth very seriously. It was the search for truth and a more authentic religious experience that led us to break away from more traditional Christianity.
