The Olympics might be over, but we are in the qualifying heat for the final candidates for our next Senior Minister. I am pleased to say that each of the three candidates is truly exceptional and all currently leading healthy and vibrant congregations.

"Beyond the Barbed Wire: A Vision for Inclusion" - Among Best Sermons Ever at UUCA

Heart-felt thanks and praise for Rev. Sarah Lammert, who with the support of Rev. Rebekah Montgomery, made today's service a truly transformative experience.  

We have often made not only military and veterans feel excluded but also Foreign Service, Civil Service, and contractors who have served in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other dangerous war zones.  In the past, politics and pedantry from the pulpit have frequently alienated those who've served or supported them here on the home front.…

Rev. Keyes 1/3/2014 "Connections" comment on "No one ever asked me..."

I was touched by rev. Keyes comment from rev. Rogers about the WWII veteran never being asked about killing Germans. Rev. Keyes went on to say that ones church should be a place we can tell our truth, share our pain with engaged listeners--both at worship services and in Covenant groups.

I couldn't agree more--to me my church should encourage the sharing of the 'JOYS AND CONCERNS "

OF OUR LIFE, as we go through the…

Christmas Brunch Idea

Nothing tastes more like Christmas to me than Panetone, the Italian egg bread that always appears everywhere just after Thanksgiving in pyramid-shaped boxes.

So this week, as I chose a Panetone from a stack at Trader Joe's I learned that it made great French toast when eggnog was used in place of milk or cream. Two TJs staffers told me to try it before I left the store so I tried it and it was delicious! I thought this would be a great dish to serve on Christmas morning or for brunch…
