Worship Schedule



"Immortality of Influence" - Rev. Ann Schranz - 10:30 a.m.

Every life is precious, and every death reverberates for a very long time. This morning, we reflect on the legacies of two unrelated people who enriched our congregation. Clabe Hangan was a civil rights activist, musician, and storyteller. Nancy Hanko was a dynamic, brilliant congregation member. We will hear selections from the last CD that Clabe Hangan recorded ("Mars Market"), as well as hearing remarks from his son, Ali Hangan. We will hear poetry dedicated to her mother by Soraya Shalforoosh, whose new book is entitled "This Version of Earth." May the reverberations inspire us.

Rev. Ann Schranz



"Five and a Half Objects" - Rev. Ann Schranz - 10:30 a.m.

At times spirituality has been disconnected from the human senses. Author S. Brent Plate offers a worthwhile alternative approach in his book entititled "A History of Religion in 5 1/2 Objects: Bringing the Spiritual to Its Senses." We will explore ways that the senses support spiritual growth.

"Go, As You Are!" - Rev. Czire Szabolcs, Transylvanian Unitarian minister, seminary professor, and 2014-15 Balazs Scholar, Starr King School for Ministry, Berkeley.- 10:30 a.m.

Liberals are pretty much alike everywhere: stand on the side of love, represent the countercultural opposition to oppression in society, sing songs like "Come, Come, Whoever You Are." And we are pretty serious about it. The most important things in life meet us unprepared, and we still have to respond to them. It's not the preparation, but our presence that makes the difference. So, go, go however you are and do your best -- seen from an international perspective.
