Julien LeBourdais will discuss the benefits and satisfaction he has received over the years volunteering for a variety of charitable organizations. Using his own experiences as examples, he will demonstrate the importance of finding the right “fit” for any volunteer. He will show how it can be an uplifting experience to combine volunteering for UUCD with volunteering in the outside community.
The complete sermon can be read below:
We hear regularly now of “the new normal.” Just what is “normal”? How do we respond to “normal,” new or otherwise? What is our role in the midst of the current global challenges in living our values and working for the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible? Come and enjoy our first in-person service in months - bring your own chair/blanket, coffee/snacks, and dress warmly in case of chilly weather as we enjoy seeing one another face to face once again.
Each year we begin in September with Water Communion, a ritual shared by Unitarian Universalist congregations around the world. We had hoped to gather in person for the first time in 6 months, but threatening thunder storms means that we will have to wait another week for an outside gathering (fingers crossed). For our online water communion, you are invited to bring water that is meaningful to you for our ritual - water of strength and courage, resilience and endurance, peace and renewal, play and joy, connection and love and beyond. All are welcome as we celebrate and connect together through the crests and troughs of life's many waters.
