Sunday, December 20th 2020 10:30am EST
As we approach the annual retelling of the Christmas Eve story we often think about the struggles of refugees, the hope a new born babe brings into the world and what it means to be welcoming by making room at the inn. This Sunday we will look at the importance and meaning of the word stable. In a time of so many unknowns let us be stable.
Rev. Colleen Squires
Minister, All Souls Community Church of West Michigan
All Souls Community Church of West Michigan first met 19 years ago in a local park on Sunday, Sept 9, 2001. Two days later our world changed with the events of Sept 11th. The next week they met again in the park committed to building a liberal faith community that is welcoming and inclusive to all in the conservative city of Grand Rapids. In 2012 they called the Rev. Colleen Squires to serve as their first settled minister. A few years ago they became a teaching congregation.

This is an art show put on by the Crossroads Group of the Sierra Club and the Environmental Council of Huron Valley in partnership with Huron Valley Council for the Arts, Community Unitarian Universalists of Brighton and Michigan Rock School. CUUB's role will be to be one of 2 sites who will host the submissions, IF we are meeting in person at that time. Otherwise, we will do all of our events online like last year.

Please direct your questions to Lee Anzicek, Sue Kelly, and Dave Beeman - all contact info. in the online Church Directory.
We would appreciate your help in spreading the word. Full submission details and timeline can be found here.

December 27th - Radical Hope in the New Year

What are the pathways and strategies toward a desired collective future?
History and our ancestors teach us pride and resilience. We can use that to
create possibilities, meaning and purpose in order to exercise radical hope
in the New Year.

January 3rd - Every Body is A Good Body
Rev. Rachel Lonberg
People's Church in Kalamazoo
(Note service starts at 10:45 AM Eastern Time)
At the beginning of the year, we are inundated with messages about new year’s resolutions about weight loss. Let’s ignore those messages this year and celebrate our bodies, just as they are, in all their shapes, sizes and capabilities. Our bodies are worthy of care just as they are.
Our services start at 10:45am on Sundays. I’ve pasted in the zoom connection details below. It might also be worth noting that folks from the UU Fellowship of Central Michigan (in Mt. Pleasant) will also be attending the service .It will be good to be all together.
