Transitions

MMUUF Member and Vice President Kelly McCutcheon Adams will lead this Sunday’s service, Transitions. This is a return to a tradition of ours to use the final service to acknowledge transitions over the year past and look to the summer ahead. She will be assisted by Maura Collins, Dana Baron, and Jen Levine. Kelly lives in Essex Junction with her husband and their two children. She telecommutes to Boston as a Senior Director at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement.

Please join us for this special closing service for the year and then please join us for the cookout to celebrate our ten years of fellowship in the barn. The cookout is a potluck with burgers/hot dogs/veggie burgers and beverages provided.

Mutual Gifts

In this service, Kate will discuss the spiritual practice of receiving what is offered and how this practice might inspire and nurture our social justice work.

Kate Plummer is a nurse, midwife, and chaplain-in-training who is discerning a call to Unitarian Universalist ministry. She worked at the Vermont State Hospital right up until it flooded during Tropical Storm Irene, and now sees patients at Planned Parenthood health centers in northern Vermont. She is mother to an adult daughter, and daughter to elder parents, and is seeking to respond as well as she can to this year’s UU call to dismantle intersectional white supremacy.

Our Own Faith Symbols

This Sunday we will turn the service inside out for a multigenerational service. Join us for a peak into the Religious Education program while exploring the symbols of our faith. Adults and children alike will learn about the origin of the UU chalice symbol, and hands-on activities will explore the symbols of our own faith beliefs. We hope everyone will join us for this intergenerational shared adventure that will celebrate the child in us all.
