March 2020

Sunday, March 1, 10:15 am. Sunday Service.  Topic: Covenant.  Presentation by:  Mary image for uu 3-1-20 presentation unnamedAnn Beggs.
   Covenant is an essential feature of Unitarian Universalist congregations. We do not gather around a creed with allegiance to a specific set of beliefs. Rather, with covenant we are bound together through a set of promises that enhance the quality of our relationships. In place of right belief, we focus on right relationship.  Thoughtful expectations of each other are the key to creating a vibrant, beloved community.  We will consider how we at CCUUF can deepen our relationships through making and keeping promises.
   Mary Ann Beggs is the current president of the Board of Trustees for the Central Coast UU Fellowship. 

Monday,  March 2, 1:00 p.m. Meeting of the CCUUF Board of Trustees at the Newport Public Library Conference Room. For time and information, contact Mary Ann at info@ccuuf.org. (Usually on the first Monday of the Month at 1:00 pm.)

Sunday, March 8, 10:15 a.m. Sunday Service. Presentation: Enlightened Buddhism and Rev-RickDavisour 7 Principles.   Speaker: The Rev. Rick Davis, Senior Pastor at Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Salem. .Our celebrant for this service will be CCUUF board member CM Hall.   Come join us for a discussion of the Unitarian Universalist Seven Principles and the relationship of the principles to enlightened Buddhism.
    Our speaker will be the Rev. Rick Davis who has been a speaker before at our fellowship. “Rev. Rick” became senior minister at UUCS in 1993. He was originally drawn to Unitarian Universalism through his interest in world religions, particularly Zen Buddhism that guides his daily meditation. The UU religious movement became his spiritual home, as it promotes free and responsible religious thought, and encompasses expressions that affirm his multi-faith theology.  “UUism put no theological constraints on which sources could inspire me in my spiritual quest.”

.     Rev. Rick’s personal beliefs are expansive, and include a strong sense that there is a sacred dimension to our lives beckoning us to become more attuned to this reality, whether called “God” or “The Holy” or “The Mystery Beyond Naming.”   He notes, “The litmus test for religion is whether it manifests as compassion.”
.     He received his Master of Divinity from Emory University, Chandler School of Theology in 1986, and was ordained in 1987 at Emerson Unitarian Church in Canoga Park, CA where he served for six years.

*** ​CCUUF Sunday Services CANCELLED​ ***​
Presentation:  The Sanctity of Life:    A sanctity of life 0e4825881_1453749510_sanctityoflifegroup discussion, facilitated by Craig Sherman.  All over the world and this nation,  individuals and institutions make moral judgements on ending life.  We will discuss Death with Dignity, War, Capital Punishment, Abortion, Universal Health Care,  and more, to review the seeming contradictions in policy and belief.  And the reasons we each hold to support our individual positions.   Where is the common ground in this discussion?

–what do we mean by “sanctity of life”? 
–for many sanctity of life relates to abortion but to few of the rest of these. Why is that? 
— Is that religious based or cultural?  If it is religious based, why the diversity of views within Religions, or a Religion,  on the issue?
