About Our Services
Starr King Unitarian Universalist Sunday Services follow a traditional Unitarian Universalist structure. All services begin at 9:30 a.m. and last about an hour. Religious Education for children is held simultaneously. There is a “family corner” with children’s toys for children who would like to stay in the Service with their parents. Nursery care is also provided. Scroll down to see the schedule of services for the month.
Elements of a typical morning worship service usually include:
- Words of welcome
- Lighting a flaming chalice, the symbol of our faith
- A multigenerational segment, such as a “The Story”
- Music, both instrumental and vocal and in a variety of styles
- A time for lifting up the joys and concerns of the congregation
- A meditation or prayer
- Readings—ancient or contemporary
- A sermon given by a professional minister, a guest speaker, or a member of the congregation
- An offering, collecting financial donations for the congregation or for justice work in the community.
good care of ourselves. Join us as we explore how
we might care for our spirits by seeking sanctuary for
How might we help each other bring our best selves
to a world so desperately in need of our care? Let us
come together to embrace the many ways we can
offer shelter and respite to each other.
I’m going to talk about stuff. Most people in this
country have way more than enough stuff, but it’s
rarely talked about. Storage units are one of our
country’s great growth industries. I even have a
couple of friends who created their own storage-unit
business called Stuff It. Brilliant. I believe the hippie
movement was crushed by the established forces not
because we smoked pot or believed in free love, but
because we were fed up with materialism. We had
everything we needed and most of what we wanted,
and were saying “enough, already.”
Join us as we reflect, celebrate, and harbor hope for
all that it means to put a Black Lives Matter Banner
on our fellowship building.
