September 19: Sing In My Heart: Celebrations and Rituals
Eva Doucette (she/her), Worship Coordinator
One way Unitarian Universalist spirituality can be expressed is in the liturgies, ceremonies, and worship services we create. Rituals and celebrations are ways to appreciate life, face grief and sorrow, share joy and gratitude, and deepen relationships and core commitments. They add meaning and purpose to major life events, help us embrace change, help us express important emotions, including love and grief. They can help build community. And they can enhance personal connections with the sacred, with the Spirit of Life. Join us as we explore creating our ritual life together.
September 26: Chocolate! Sacred, Sinful or Salubrious?
Rev. Dr. Carrie Knowles (she/her)
Rev. Dr. Carrie Knowles shares the history of cocoa as the gift of the gods, as the temptation to sinful addiction, and what we know today of its contribution to mental health.
Rev. Dr. Carrie Knowles describes herself as a recovering psychologist and recovering attorney, who graduated from Starr King in 2011 and was ordained to UU ministry in 2013. Along with providing pastoral care at BFUU and preaching at Bay Area churches as a guest speaker, she writes poetry, short stories, and is working on a memoir.
