Worship Services for September
September 2 ~ Civil Disobedience: Just One of the Tools in the Toolbox of Change ~ Rev. Gail
Ever Since Henry David Thoreau wrote Resistance to Civil Government (Civil Disobedience) in 1849, activists and protestors have been inspired by his words. What did he say? What does it suggest we do now?
September 9 ~ Water Ceremony: The Unshakable Conspiracy of Goodness ~ Rev. Gail
Join us for our annual ingathering service. Please bring a small amount of water from someplace you have been this summer. In the course of the service we will gather the waters in a single vessel bless them and send them out again to bless the world.
September 16 ~ Half-Sure and Whole-Hearted ~ The Revs. Anne Marsh and Wade Wheelock
UU Santa Fe has a mission: nurturing hearts and minds, building beloved community, working for justice. It is a bold and beautiful vision, but our actions often fall short. Since perfection is not an option, we invite you to explore what enables us to come together anyway, in the midst of brokenness, disappointment, and uncertainty, and act on our commitments to each other and to the wider world.
The Revs. Anne Marsh and Wade Wheelock served as Co-Ministers of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Canton, NY, from 1993 until they retired in 2009, when they were named Ministers Emeriti. Wade and Anne now live in Los Alamos, where they enjoy hiking in the mountains and canyons and love spending time with family and friends, especially granddaughter Miranda. With any luck, their family Escape Room adventure will find its way into the sermon…
September 23 ~ Why Human connectedness will bring us together…a Brene Brown perspective ~ Rev. Tony Thieman-Somora
In her book, Braving the Wilderness, Brene Brown speaks about the “quest for true belonging and the courage to stand alone.” This sermon will explore how it seems we are in a spiritual crisis in our nation and in our world, and that the key to building a true belonging practice is maintaining our belief in inextricable human connection.
September 30 ~ When The Big Tree Falls ~ Rev. Munro Sickafoose
History holds millennia of lessons, and yet it always seems to come up with a few new variations. Or put another way, we've been here before, and yet it's completely new. What do we do when the winds of change swirl? What do we do when an old order passes away? How do we act? How are we to be together? Rev. Sickafoose shares some observations, some thoughts, and some lessons from the past.

UU Santa Fe has a magnetic hearing loop, which transmits sound magnetically to hearing loops and cochlear implants with T-coils (telecoils). This system transmits sound to T-coil-equipped hearing aids through a wire that surrounds the sanctuary. The telecoil is activated by a t-switch on many hearing aids or cochlear implants. Older models may not have this technology.
