Slavery & Human Trafficking Prevention Month – Rev. Kharma Amos

January is Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. What better time to address this than at the celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr Day!  Most people in the United States can ignore this as a present issue; but slavery is not only a nasty legacy of the past, it is also a current reality for many people. Put another way, human trafficking is not only a convenient or compelling plot for various TV series or movies, it is also the painful life reality of actual people.

In this worship service, we will try to educate ourselves about the current reality, and hope/pray/act for the eradication of modern-day slavery and human trafficking.  All the while, we will continue to NURTURE our Spirits, BUILD Community, and CHANGE the World (this is the vision of UUCD).

The Spirituality of Silliness – Rev. Kharma Amos

Humor is one of the most under-rated spiritual practices that most of us love and desperately need. It provides a necessary balance, and re-fuels us for deeper engagement in the world even in difficult times. In this worship service, we’ll explore the role silliness, play, and humor have in our lives.

What’s so Important about Forgiveness? – Kharma Amos

Nearly all of the world’s religions lift up the practice of forgiveness as central to the spiritual life. Yet, forgiveness is one of the most difficult things we are asked to do – as individuals, people in relationship, and as a global community. In this worship, we’ll talk about what forgiveness is and isn’t, and we’ll visit some lessons that may help us be more forgiving.

Purim: For Such a Time as This – Rev. Kharma Amos

During the Jewish holiday of Purim, the story of the saving of the Jewish people during the Persian empire (as told in the book of Esther) is read, enacted, and celebrated. The story of Queen Esther is a remarkable story with lessons still relevant for people of all faiths today. Join us as we explore more, and reflect about each of us is uniquely poised to offer the world.
