A Flower Blooming at Your Door

For the Sunday Worship at the close of District Assembly (DA), UUCLB presents two worship services at 9am and 11am. The two services are separate and self-contained, but also fit together to form one long worship service with an “Intermission” in the middle. Both services are inspired by the DA theme “From the Ground Up.” Both services will include a little of everything, but the 9am service emphasizes “the Word” with poetry and preaching from our Interim Minister, Rev. Hoyt-McDaniels, while the 11am service emphasizes “Music” with congregational singing and music from combined choirs from Unitarian Universalist churches throughout the area under the direction of UUCLB Director of Music, Francisco Ruiz and DA Keynote, Donald Milton III.

One of the readings from today's service:

"Hope Again" by Clarke Dewey Wells

God of Easter and infrequent Spring:
announce the large covenant to deceitful lands,
Drive the sweet liquor through our parched veins,
Lure us to fresh schemes of life.
Rouse us from tiredness, self-pity,
Whet us for use,
Fire us with good passion.
Restore in us the love of living,
Bind us to fear and hope again.
