20-10-18 DeepListeningWelcome to First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus' Sunday service.
Listening helps us find our way. Yet, there is so much more to listening. It also creates our world. Just think about why you listen to those close to you. Is it really just to gather information? To hear the other clearly? Or, is it because you've discovered in those rare moments of deep listening that a space suddenly opens up? A space that feels sacred. A space that, once you've experienced it, you never want to leave. Come, let's explore.
Special thanks to Jason Shelton (arr.) for the use of "Hush", John Corrado for "Voice Still and Small", and Joyce Poley for "When Our Heart Is in a Holy Place", who gave permission for streaming.
20 10 11 IndigenousPeoplesDayWelcome to First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus' Sunday service online. On this "Columbus Day" we explore a people's history that debunks a founding myth. Celebrations and statues, even literature and popular culture, cover up truths that we'd rather ignore. It is time to unmask the myth and lift up Indigenous people, their history, life, and wisdom, too long hidden and dismissed.

August 30, 2020 - "Making Real Community" - BuxMont UU Fellowship, Warrington, PAWelcome to First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus' Sunday service online.

Please bring your own chalice or candle so we can light our chalice together!
Today’s Service is with the the UU Fellowship of BuxMont in Warrington, PA.
"Making Real Community"
What does it mean to be part of a community and how do we know when we are in fact part of such a thing? Our Great Pause as a society has called into question many of our prior assumptions about religious congregations and all sorts of other ways we are, or are not, part of communities.
The Rev. Kevin W. Jagoe serves BuxMont Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Warrington, PA as their minister and is joined by Music Director John Hook, Accompanist Margaret Lea, and lay members of the BuxMont community.
