Tuesday Morning Message from UUA Interim Co-Presidents

This message from our Interim Co-Presidents is so key to the current macrocosm of our denomination, and within the microcosm of our congregational communities.
“These are times for us to engage and communicate out of our most faithful selves, mindful of our first principle, striving to maintain relationship even when deeply held opinions vary. We invite you to join us in embracing these moments of opportunity for finding a new way forward.”
May our best selves step forward to face these challenging times. May we strive to hear each other beyond our assumptions and ingrained beliefs. May our living tradition ever reflect our shared values. Amen 

Mother’s Day Blues Gathering and Ritual

If Mother’s Day is difficult for you, please join us Saturday, May 13th 7:00pm-9:00pm at Twinkle’s Place where all your emotions will be held in sacred space.

Mother’s Day is incredibly difficult for many women.

Women who have had challenging circumstances with their own mothers.

Women who have difficult situations with their children.

Women whose mother’s have died.

Women who carry pain in their hearts daily having had their child or children die.

Single or divorced mothers who share their children with another parent in less than ideal circumstances.

Single mothers who carry the full responsibility of sole-parenting all by themselves.

Stepmothers who struggle to live up to their stepchildren’s expectations.

Biological mothers who worry that they are being replaced by their child’s stepmother.

Adoptive mothers who carry concerns about biological mothers reappearing in their children’s lives.

Women who are estranged from their children.

Women who have miscarried children.

And all manner of modern day family situations that create complicated emotions for women.

And, also,

Women who would dearly love to have children, yet are infertile.

And,

Women who have chosen to not have children, yet mother in many ways.

Join us as we gather in ritual to honor who we are, and where we are, on our journeys.

Saturday, May 13th 7:00pm-9:00pm

Inauguration Day Potluck & Candlelight Vigil

We are taking a road trip to join in beloved community with the Unitarian Universalist congregation in Sangerville.

UU churches and fellowships do not endorse or denounce political candidates, we promote values and principles in alignment with our liberal faith and we seek ways to meet the needs of our community. 

The results of this election have caused fear in our nation, and in our community. Residents have concerns about how the new administration will affect them and those they love.  There are fears about access to needed medical care, the sexual objectification of women, potentially negative implications possible policy changes would mean to marriage equality and LGBTQ rights, as well as concerns about racism, xenophobia and human rights violations.

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Sangerville & Dover-Foxcroft will host a Potluck and Vigil on the eve of Inauguration Day. It will be a time to comfort one another as we express our concerns and share our hopes.
