You also can simply click this link to watch the service at a later time. Last week, there was not enough band-width to allow uploading the service as it was recorded. We have taken steps to mitigate that issue, but it is possible it may happen again. If there is no live feed at 10:45 am, check back later in the afternoon. We will upload the recorded service and hopefully have it available after 4:00 pm.

April 12: Renewal & Rebirth - Alleluia!
The earth is a tremendous teacher, if we but stop and pay attention to her lessons. Each passing season is both the same as last year, and uniquely its own experience. Can we welcome this time of renewal even as we look for the new and unrepeatable gifts which are offered. The earth sings alleluia and we remember stories which speak deeply to the human heart. Happy Easter! ~Rev Pam Rumancik
April 19: Earth Day presented by UCH Green Sanctuary Team
Join our green folks as they both celebrate our planet and mourn the damage we have done. How are we connecting to the mother of all life?
April 26: Caravan of Time
The western concept of time is always looking ahead to what is coming down the road. Some Sufi groups see time as a caravan - where everything that has gone before us stretches out in front of us and the future is following behind. How might this help us make better choices for ourselves and our world?
~Rev Pam Rumancik
