For many parents it is also imperative that their children believe in the existence of a supernatural being similar, in some respects, to Santa ... called God. But this being is for real.

In celebration of the artists within our community — writers, poets, painters, sewers, dancers, musicians and more -- and the spark of creativity within each of us, we´ll explore the trials and tribulations of nurturing our creative sides. You are invited to bring a piece of your art (or an image) to share.
"Paying it forward" is something we all may say or hear from time to time, but is there more to it? From the small acts like paying for someone’s coffee behind you in line to greater acts of love and generosity, what would it be like if we all lived this way more often, on both sides of giving and receiving?

Life is often described as a journey. As an ADHD family, our journey is anything but straightforward. We've learned to define success in our own way.

One of our Unitarian Universalist songs repeats "Return again. Return again. Return to the home of your soul." As we begin another year together at UUCD, what does it mean to look for and find a home, literally and figuratively? How can we create a sense of home for ourselves and one another?
Welcome back! An intergenerational event welcoming people back to UUCD Services for a new season! Of course, you may always bring a friend. Remember to collect samples of the water you meet on your travels this summer, including your own backyard.
Have a very Happy Summer!
At Burr Lodge - our annual Picnic (and BBQ) to celebrate Summer.
