Services begin at 10:30 a.m. and are held in Fellowship Hall at 1924 Cedar St. in Berkeley.

 

December 21: The Longest Night: a Solstice Ritual
Rev. Theresa Novak, Worship Leader
This will be an intergenerational service as we ritually leave behind some of what now longer serves us. We will embrace the dark and its healing powers.


Wednesday December 24: Christmas Eve Candlelight Service 5:00 PM
Rev. Theresa Novak, Worship Leader
This will be an intergenerational, and fairly traditional, Christmas Eve service which will include a liberal interpretation of the Christmas story and lots of carols!


December 28:  New Year Wishes
Holly Harwood, Worship Associate 

January 4: Letting God Off Leash
Rev. Theresa Novak, Worship Leader
The images we have of God affect how we live in the world, how we think of ourselves, and how we treat other people.  This is true even for people who do not believe in God.  Atheists, theists, and everyone in between might be surprised at some different ways we can imagine God.

January 11: A Family Church
Rev. Theresa Novak, Worship Leader
People often say that BFUU is like a family to them.  What does that mean?  How is functioning "like a family" a good thing for a religious community and how can it sometimes hold us back from really fulfilling our mission in the wider world?  

January 18: Still Dreaming
Rev. Theresa Novak, Worship Leader
On this Martin Luther King Sunday, we will explore the power of having a vision of a better world.  Does the arc of the universe really bend toward justice?  What can we do to make it so?

January 5: People Get Ready: The Power of Music in the Civil Rights Movement; Then and Now!

Tom McAninley will reflect on his awakening to that historic movement of the Sixties and how it has impacted his life since then. And the band Soul Rising will invite the congregation to sing powerful songs from that era to strengthen us for these current  struggles.
