Homecoming Sunday
Rev. Jan K. Nielsen
We’re inviting everyone to “come on back home” to UUCLR for this celebration of our beloved community as we mark the beginning of the 2015-16 program year, our 65th year as a congregation. We’ll also honor the uniquely Unitarian Universalist tradition of water communion as we pour together waters from our journeys, whether journeys of land or journeys of the spirit, and explore what it means to be “at home” in the world. We’ll be waiting at the doors to welcome you back home.

Honoring the High Holy Days

Rev. Jan K. Nielsen
On this Sunday, we’ll honor our Jewish roots and mark Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, when Jews around the world make a fresh start. We’ll ask what it means for us as humans to forgive one another and, sometimes hardest of all, to forgive ourselves our missteps on life’s journey, and also explore what it means to be “at home” in our hearts.

10:00 am
Discussion of our 6th Principle. The UUA website, uua.org, has information about each of the seven principles for your review before the discussion if you desire.

Honoring Arkansas Peace Week
Rev. Jan K. Nielsen
How can any of us be “at home” either in the world or in our hearts unless all of us, on this planet, learn to dwell together in peace? Our
congregation is a sponsor of Arkansas Peace Week, September 20 through 27, a time when people around our state will be working to “Make Peace our Natural State” here in our home state, the Natural State, this land of Arkansas. Where does peace begin? What can we do, in our state and in our lives, to “make peace our natural state”?
