Services for Febuary and March
February 12 ~ A Sabbath for the Trees: a service for all ages ~ Rev. Gail
In the Jewish tradition Tu B'Shvat is the New Year of the Trees a celebration of the gifts of the earth. This morning we celebrate the natural world with story and homily from Rev. Gail, music from the “Peace Pipes” and a visual meditation from Dierk Haskin. Members of UU Santa Fe are invited to join HaMakom for an Earth Seder at 2 pm. Please sign up for the Earth Seder in the Foyer
February 19 ~ Finding Home ~ Rev. Gail
There are so many ways and reasons one might be homeless – you might be a refugee fleeing persecution, or a homeless young adult trying to figure out how to function in an adult world, or someone displaced by illness or trauma, or an immigrant working hard to make ends meet. Everyone needs a home. This service will explore the notion of home and the ways we are helping people who need homes find them.
February 26 ~ A Celebration of Elders ~ Rev. Gail
Join us as we celebrate the lives of several of our elders: Bob and Esther Jones, Jackie and Joe Calligan, and Barbara and Richard Davis. Special Music from Choro De Camera.
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.

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.
