The Spark of the Divine

December 15, 2019

The religious meaning of Christmas can get lost in the secular celebrations and overwhelming consumerism of the Holiday Season.  In the Christian tradition the Incarnation, meaning the Divine taking Human Form, is a powerful and meaningful religious idea. The Unitarian side of our tradition has emphasized how we are “created in the image of God” with each of us containing the spark of the divine within us.  This worship service will explore these ideas and how they can still be meaningful to our Unitarian Universalist faith in the 21st Century.

Christmas: The Defying of Our Expectations

December 22, 2019

Perhaps one of the strongest messages from the traditional Christmas story is how life can surprise us with the unexpected.  The idea of Jesus as the messiah - the divinely anointed one - being born in a stable, resting in a manger, and their divine presence being announced to shepherds all defy our expectations of the importance of the event.  It is said that unspoken expectations are just premeditated resentments. This worship service will explore the idea of expectations with a worship service that will challenge your expectations in its worship format. This is an Intergenerational Worship Service

SPECIAL JOINT CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE WITH FAITH PRESBYTERIAN

December 24, 2019

Christmas Eve, 6:00 pm On this Christmas Eve, we will honor the Christian story of the birth of Jesus.  Many of us feel the Christmas story is so familiar that new meaning can seem hard to find.  Perhaps much of the comfort of the Christmas story is its familiarity. This joint inter-generational Christmas Eve service will explore and honor the Christian story of the birth of Jesus. This will be a joint worship service between Faith Presbyterian and Wildflower.  As part of the worship service there will be a Christina Communion ritual and Faith has a freely open communion table for all people and anyone who wish may participate in this ritual.
