February 2021 Services & Activities

On Sunday, February 7, the service will be Just Mercy, presented by Patrice Grant and Mary Ann Beggs.

JustMercyFebruary’s Theme for the Central Coast Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Sunday Services is “Mercy.” This Sunday we will consider how mercy and justice intersect and how we can forge deeper connections where little connection exists.

On Sunday, February 14, the service will be Can you keep a secret? Should you? How do we show radical mercy to ourselves?, presented by CM Hall.

PostSecretHave you ever heard of PostSecret.com? Frank Warren, the site’s founder says, ‘Secrets can take many forms. They can be shocking, or silly, or soulful. They can connect us to our deepest humanity or with people we’ll never meet.” Do you hold onto a secret that you are too ashamed or embarrassed to share? Or do you know others who do? Perhaps it’s rooted in regret, fear, betrayal, desire, confession, or childhood humiliation? If you had a dark secret, would you want to be judged by others knowing it? How (and when) do you practice radical mercy for yourself or others to shine a light on our secrets?

Music by Rand Bishop.

On Sunday, February 21, the service will be Can We Decide to be Happy?, presented by Virginia Gibbs and Denise Ross.

happinessA distinction can be made between “natural happiness” and “synthetic happiness.” Is one more real than the other? Can we simply decide to be happy, or is that a simplistic ideal? Is happiness important?

On Sunday, February 28, the service will be Do Justice, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly, presented by Brent Burford.

Do justice, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly ce“Do Justice, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly” is a paraphrase of the well known verse from Micah 6:8 in the Jewish scriptures. In recent years, this verse has enjoyed a renaissance due to the increasing emphasis on social justice within many churches. Micah 6:8 has become a key text deployed by many liberal churches as a rallying cry for justice and advocacy. However, its original context had an emphasis on mercy. Brent will lead us in a discussion of this verse, what it means, and how it relates to the Unitarian Universalist Seven Principles.
