WORSHIP & SERMONS

Some have suggested that a Sunday service is a journey or pilgrimage in which we are drawn out of our own concerns to join a community in exploration and to feel a renewed connection with the sacred in life. The service may be partly a time of reflection, partly an opportunity to experience a challenge, partly a time to mourn or celebrate, and partly a time to serve Life. At the end of the journey, the individual is alone again, but renewed and inspired to go out into the world.

Each week we gather to worship and be together on Sunday mornings.  Our services are typically geared towards adults.  Children and youth participate in Religious Education classes during worship. During the summer months we offer childcare for children five and under.

March's Soul Matters Theme is Journey

During the months of September - June, Cedar Lane has a monthly worship theme as determined by our Soul Matters programming.  Over 150 Unitarian Universalist congregations participate in this program. Sunday worship services and monthly Soul Matters small group ministry materials center on that month's theme as a way to provide a deeper connection to these important themes.

MOST RECENT WORSHIP SERVICE

Sermon: "Life is a Labyrinth"
March 17, 2019
Rev. Amanda Poppei, Senior Leader, Washington Ethical Society (WES)

So often we imagine that life is like a straight line. But in reality our lives are much more like a spiral, including those lessons that repeat over and over again when we think we should get a break from them already! Using the image of a labyrinth as a starting place, Rev. Amanda will explore the constancy of change, and how we can find ourselves transformed...even when we feel like we are facing the same darn thing.

The goal of a religious community like ours is to provide one another with support, endurance, and encouragement for that journey - to give one another the precious gift of compassion and companionship as we seek out together a deeper understanding, a wider purpose, and a sustaining love. The service will explore the deeper meanings of religious community on Celebration Sunday.
