Upcoming Worship Services:

March 26 | 9 & 11 a.m.
Our Iceberg Is Melting!
Rev. Abhi Janamanchi
Change. The word is enough to make some people shudder in anticipation – like waiting for the other shoe to drop. For others, it’s the juice that makes life most interesting. No matter what your feelings, there is one truth about change: change is a certainty. It is one of the few constants. How we choose to risk – or resist – change, determines what transformations take place in our own lives.

March 26 | 4 p.m.
Pratima Dharm’s Ordination Service
Revs. Rebecca Montgomery, Scott Sammler-Michael, Abhi Janamanchi & others
Ordination is the act by which a person becomes a minister. It is a ceremonial and joyous occasion with deep roots in our polity and heritage. Join us for a special service to ordain Cedar Lane member Pratima Dharm into the Unitarian Universalist ministry.

April 9, 2017 | 9 & 11 a.m.
Rev. Abhi Janamanchi
The Passover Seder retells the ancient story of the Exodus, the quintessential immigration story. Reliving this journey helps us appreciate our own freedom anew, and invites us to empathize with all of those who live in fear and are seeking their own promised land. This Passover, let us also imagine walking alongside our more recent ancestors on their journeys, escaping poverty or persecution and migrating to America.

April 14 at 6:30 p.m. in the Chapel
"Defending Judas":  A Good Friday Service

Join Intern Minister Norman Allen for a half-hour, candle-lit service that uses the darkness of Good Friday to explore our world’s wounded nature, even as we work toward the healing and rejuvenation represented by Easter Morning. Drawing on multiple faith traditions, the service will center on that moment when Jesus greets even the traitorous Judas as “Friend.”

April 16, 2017 | 9 & 11 a.m.

Rev. Abhi Janamanchi & Hillary Collins-Gilpatrick
On Easter Sunday join us for a celebratory and contemplative service co-led by Rev. Abhi Janamanchi and Hillary Collins-Gilpatrick.
