Our Next Service on November 1st:
Touchstones Theme for November,
Join us on November 1st as Clovice Lewis Jr. discusses “Spirituality for Unitarian Universalists.” In the decades since the Unitarians and Universalists merged, the UUA has developed into a society of local congregations that focus primarily on liberal social, political, environmental, and gender-related issues. The influence of secular humanism, while still strong, has diminished somewhat with the rise of postmodernism. Clovice Lewis Jr.'s sermon explores why adding more spirituality into the mix might be good for Unitarian Universalists.

Please join us at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time

Following 3rd Sunday Service:
Spirituality can be found anywhere, easily. If one connects on a soulful level, it can even be touched. Join us on November 15th as Laurel Frishman shares her spiritual connection to Nature, her higher power, and our 7th Principle. Her inspiring talk is entitled “I, In Awesome Wonder.” 

Laurel Frishman is a newly minted retiree! After 32 years as a Project Manager at Apple, Laurel is excited to move on to other adventures. Her initial plans momentarily sidelined by the pandemic, Laurel currently pursues various covid-compatible interests: UUCC, coastal cleanup, genealogy, hiking, and gardening. (With a degree in Zoology, her interests have always been of a biological and scientific nature, and with a specific interest in Environmental Sciences and Ecology.) When the time is right, she plans to resume her other interests: traveling, visiting with friends, going to movies, and attending Stanford Women’s Basketball games. In El Granada since 2012, Laurel is one of UUCC's founders.
Thank you!
