Bobby Socks and the Bomb, and Maundy Thursday

This past Sunday, we considered some of the spiritual and theological messages of the 1950s. You can listen to the sermon ("Bobby Socks and the Bomb: Diggin' that 1950s Spirituality") here.

Several of us dressed in 1950s costumes. I sported Bill Haley-like hair and Buddy Holly-like glasses. I'm not so sure about those... but the atomic blue bowling shirt is a keeper!

We are entering into a busy time of the year. There are lots of great events coming up in April and May, when the weather becomes more reliable in these parts. Stay tuned! I'll post information here!


Last night we had a UU Vespers service where we thought about Celtic spirituality and mysticism together. Now, we turn our attention to upcoming holidays such as Easter and Passover.

This coming Thursday, March 24, we will hold our second annual Maundy Thursday Service. Maundy Thursday (sometimes called “Holy Thursday”) is a Christian commemoration of the Last Supper and the mandate (“maundy” comes from the Latin mandatum) of Jesus to his disciples, “Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.” We will have an intimate communion service, combining elements of the humanistic “Unitarian Universalist Eucharist” created by Rev. Chuck Freeman as well as elements from the liberal Christian tradition. There will be wine as well as juice available. This service is open to all. Please join us! Directions here.
