Services for March and April
March 5 ~ The Pines, the Ashes, and the Seedlings ~ Rev. Nell Newton
It’s easy to be dazzled by beauty of nature and when we wander into religious naturalism we are apt to spend more time admiring its prettier parts. Our 7th principle asks us to hold “respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” But that web has some dark strands and complex connections that elude our understanding. In this sermon we’ll take a walk through the burned out forest of Bastrop, Texas to consider the implications of a deep green religion.
Rev. Newton is a graduate of Meadville Lombard and is currently serving as a community minister in Central Texas. She lives in Austin, TX with her husband, a flock of chickens, too many cats, and one sweet dog.
March 12 ~ Sabbath: The Secret to Thriving in Chaos ~ Rev. Gail
How do they do it? Those folks who show up everywhere and always have a smile? You know the ones. They lobby the legislature and they drive in the car pool and they help the senior citizens with their taxes and they bring food for the homeless shelter and they serve on two boards and three committees and they still smile and seem rested? How do they do it? I’m not sure – but I think I may have found one of their secrets.
March 19 ~ Lay Led Celebration of the Spring Equinox
March 26 ~ Proving Our Love ~ Rev. Gail
As Unitarian Universalists we often use the word “Love” as a synonym for God. That substitution calls us to embody Love not only in our intimate relationships but also out in the world. How do we doing at doing that? Be apprized – this Sunday is the launch of our Annual Pledge Drive so interesting things are bound to happen!
April 2 ~ Strange Bedfellows: Politics, Religion, Morality …
April 9 ~ Where is the Holy in the City of Holy Faith? ~ Rev. Gail
If as Peter Mayer sings, “everything is holy now,” then there ought to be evidence of the Holy everywhere including here in Santa Fe. What do we mean by the word “holy” and have you encountered it recently?

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.
