Worship - Sunday, September 4, 2022

This week in worship, we will be considering the concept of reconciliation. What does reconciliation look like in the Christian life?  How can we bring about reconciliation in our own sphere of influence?

Dr. Caveney will be leading the worship service and Tomas Bijok, KUC Music Director will be leading the music.

We will be observing communion this Sunday.
We look forward to you joining us!

The Lord's Prayer, translated directly from the Aramaic


O cosmic Birther of all radiance and vibration,
soften the ground of our being and carve out a space within us where your Presence can abide.
Fill us with your creativity so that we may be empowered to bear the fruit of your mission.
Let each of our actions bear fruit in accordance with our desire.
Endow us with the wisdom to produce and share what each being needs to grow and flourish.
Untie the tangled threads of destiny that bind us, as we release others from the entanglement of past mistakes.
Do not let us be seduced by that which would divert us from our true purpose, but illuminate the opportunities of the present moment.
For you are the ground and the fruitful vision, the birth, power, and fulfillment, as all is gathered and made whole once again.
And So It Is!

Ethan's Message for KUC
This Sunday we will be giving away these booklets to end the summer art projects. I will also be there at the end of the service to answer any questions you may have about the projects. Thank you all for your support and feedback over the course of the summer.

Hi Affirming People!
KUC Started the Pride Weekend at the first Pride Resource Carnival on Friday evening. We took the lovely bean bag toss that Bill Paul made. It was decorated by Candace's enthusiastic kids, and all the prizes were donated by Jackie Jones. Big thank you to all! We had a great time playing the game with all the young people who came out and making connections that Church and LGBTQ can go together!
Thank you so much to all of you who came out to be PIE last Sunday! There were well over 20 of us at the parade and at the park setting up our booth for the afterparty. All in all it was a wonderful day!

Today I am thinking about the powerful show of support at the parade; there were more people participating and enjoying the parade than I expected and I am very grateful to the KUC folk who showed up!
I also noticed that there were so many youths watching the parade and interacting with us at our booth. I am also recollecting a few of the impactful conversations that were had; the engagement at our booth was amazing!

Thank you, everyone!
KUC Together
