This Week

SAME Café is the first nonprofit restaurant in Denver, with a mission of serving good food for the greater good. We are committed to the values of healthy food and good community. We believe that everyone deserves access to a healthy, locally-sourced, mostly organic meal regardless of their ability to pay. Our mission is supported by donations of produce from local farmers, financial donations from people who believe in what we do, and a troupe of incredible volunteers who help make our kitchen run.

After the Service on Sunday in the Sanctuary, bring your empty bags, backpacks, purses, briefcases, pencil cases, art portfolios, and diaper bags to receive a blessing in a short ceremony as we begin a new season of transformation!  All ages are welcome to participate, even without a bag.  Join us for this ritual celebrating the new beginnings, hopes, and intentions that come with a new school and church year. 

 
 
One of your benefits as a UUSC member is access to occasional exclusive member-only sales at our ethical shopping marketplace, The Good Buy!
 

Making a Difference

Surrender

Surrender is the Whole Souul Living Theme for August.  By way of introduction, Surrender is the title of the following poem by William Larsen.  It has a word in it, dharma, which is Buddhist term that translates roughly as "teaching" 

 

At our house there live
a girl, a dog, and a yard full of newly planted flowers

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.

  “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.
