Sunday Service, 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Don Rollins  –  Guest Minister

“Why God is a Baseball Fan” Many liberal theologians have suggested God is code for creativity, connection and surprise. That the ancients were trying to describe all these things in their world, and some used God language to do it. Join us this Sunday as guest speaker, Don Rollins, suggests baseball games are one of God’s favorite haunts.

The service will be available in person and on zoom.

Pulpit Pallooza 

Rev. Tina Squire  from Sky Island UU

“Ancestors or Ghosts? Father’s Day, Juneteenth and Transforming Towards Collective Liberation”

Will we be supportive guides for our children, and those who come after, or haunt them with our unfinished work?  Collective liberation, our BAJA 4 DRY theme for June, takes altering ourselves, our communities and even our understanding of the world.  Zen Sensei Angel Kyodo Williams writes, “with all due respect to Gandhi—we can no longer afford to just be the change. We actually have to be the transformation, which is to say we have to transcend the form, the construct that we find ourselves in.”  How do we think outside the box and also act outside it to embrace the work that is ours to do in this demanding time?
