    "To cultivate a mind of gratitude, the most important element is maintaining daily practice, whether chanting, meditation, or prayer... and to be grateful for the practice itself."

    Kusala will speak about some of the things he does and what he has come to understand about Gratitude.

    Kusala Bhikshu is Head Monk at the International Buddhist Meditation Center in Los Angeles, California. He has a long history of speaking at MVUUC on the first Sunday of the New Year.

    Respect is a core value we treasure and hold dear; one we offer all beings. Exploring the Touchstones theme of 'Respect' during the month of March opens us toward new ways to offer pure positive regard to ourselves and to those we meet. Join Rev Maggie as we stir a bit of her Irish ancestry into our good care of the soul of self and other. Beannachtai!

    Join us as we welcome Rev. Rick Hoyt-McDaniels

    As a vaccine becomes available, we might go back to normal, or "normal" might be something new. The experience of the last year gives us an opportunity to rearrange our lives: how we work, how we socialize, and how we worship.

    This is a good time for congregations to re-connect with their core purpose: meeting the dual human needs of community and meaning.

    'Tis the April season for Calapayan UU Partnership renewal!

    On Sunday, April 25, we will celebrate our 14th year of congregational connection with the Calapayan UU Congregation on Negros Island in the Philippines.

    Our partnership is distinguished by its investment in the future of Calapayan's youth
    and our providing of regular educational funds to a community on the bottom end of the global economic divide.

We look forward to meeting together in person
when the Covid-19 ‘Shelter at Home’ order has been lifted
and we no longer have to ask ourselves if it is safe to gather together.
We will know when it is time.
Until then, we connect by mail, phone, online technology,
and in our hearts…
