Where can we find a love that, as the iconic singer and songwriter, Etta James sang, will last past Saturday night and is more than love at first sight? Well, my friends, we are so fortunate here, come and find out this Sunday morning. In this service we will contemplate questions like: Why church? Why do we come here Sunday after Sunday? What pulls us together as a community?

UUCLB member Mary Ruth Velicki served as worship associate and shared these “chakra colors” as a way to reflect on your relationship with our church:
Colors of Connection
Red – Security. A place where we feel safe and where we can feel like we belong.
Orange – Creativity. An opportunity to express ourselves creatively, and to appreciate the creations of other people.
Yellow – Action. We come together to help other people. When we work together, we learn more about other people and more about ourselves.
Green – Compassion and Connection. Church can be a place where we give and receive love.
Blue – Speaking Our Truth. In our community, we can express who we are and give others the chance to do the same.
Purple – Wisdom. We come here to get ideas on how to open up so we can give and receive more love in our lives.
White – All these colors combine into the color white, just like all these actions combine together into Love.
