Leading in Uncertain Times

As the congregation activates our fall programs, groups and ministry committees with the annual “Let the Year Begin” Sunday, Rev. Lissa reflects on the role of leadership in uncertain times. We will also welcome the Fall Equinox which begins on Tuesday September 22.

Blessing the Boats

Our UUCLB Worship team will gather the community back from summer with the familiar Unitarian Universalist ritual of the Water Communion. Send Rev. Lissa (email or text) a picture of a water source that has meaning for you and your family, whether it’s the duck pond at El Dorado park, Rosie’s Dog Beach, or even your backyard hose or kitchen sink! All ages are invited to participate and experience the service.

Sacred Unrest

It’s been a deeply troubling and challenging summer, as the Covid-19 pandemic continues amidst the ongoing uprisings and calls for systemic change and racial justice. How can we balance the deeply nourishing quality of rest and the unsettling quality of unrest, both necessary for our spiritual well being and the ongoing work of justice, healing and repair? Rev. Lissa begins her ministry with a two-part sermon series exploring the need for both, centered in our Unitarian Universalist values and principles. Together, let us gather strength and encourage one another, living into the “new normal,” pacing ourselves to meet the unexpected challenges and joys of the fall ahead. On August 23rd, Rev. Lissa leads us in exploring Sacred Rest, and on August 30th, Rev. Lissa leads us in exploring Sacred Unrest.

The Church of the Possible

We are beginning a new ministry in the midst of the worst global health crisis in our lifetimes. While we cannot be certain when we will once again enjoy our familiar routines, Candidate Reverend Lissa Gundlach invites us to explore the church of the possible, channeling our cherished values to serve the emerging needs of our community and our world.

Bless This House

We take this Sunday to explore the theme of our homes as our sanctuary. Candidate Rev. Lissa Gundlach will lead the service offering practical inspiration for cultivating comfort and reverence while staying safer at home. Send Rev. Lissa photos of yourself in your favorite place at home to her email address so she can share them during the service.
