“The Art of Meaning”

Rev. Kimberley Debus

Art has power to move us and change our lives. But what is it about the arts? We’ll examine the ways viewing, performing, and making art helps us make sense of our lives, our communities, and all of creation.

Rev. Kimberley Debus works as a community minister in the Albany, NY area, inspiring congregations to more artful and art-filled worship, congregational life, and public witness. She has previously served the First Universalist Church of Southold on Long Island and One Island Family UU Congregation in Key West. She will be serving us for two months during Rev. Linda’s spring sabbatical.

 

Religious Exploration

On October 8th, the children were introduced to this year’s theme for Sunday Mornings: “Being UU Every Day”. We talked about rituals we do at home, in school and at the Meeting House. One of those rituals in the Meeting House is lighting a chalice every week at the beginning of our service. We told the story of how and why the chalice came to be and is now the recognized symbol of our faith. The activity for the morning was to begin creating our own clay pot chalices to take home.

Next Sunday, we will  be starting our “club house rules” for Sunday mornings. We will be making our own nametags for Sunday mornings and will begin learning about UU history and background.  We will also be finishing up our chalices.
