“A Olive Branch for an Aching World,” December 3, 2023

The Touchstones Theme for December is Plurality. On December 3, we warmly welcome back Esther Wallace, M.Div., to the UUCC pulpit with a sermon entitled “A Olive Branch for an Aching World.”

We are living through times of deep social divisions, and, increasingly, a time when peace through multi-religious unity may seem far-off. The idea of religiously plural communities may seem impossible, farfetched, or even trite when our religious communities—places of deeply held values and habits—can so easily become sites of conflict. This service invites us to consider the ways we might learn to cherish each other, and asks: how might we come to understand our spiritualities as abundant, pluralistic resources, and how can we create lasting pluralistic communities? Beautiful music is to be provided by Diedrik and Kaj Edholm and Vera Vanderschalk, as well as lovely hymns led by Tom Devine.

This live in-person service takes place at Odd Fellows Hall, 526 Main StreetHalf Moon Bay, CA, 94019. A Zoom option to watch from home is also available on the day of the service.
