Peaks and Valleys



November 28, 2021

10:30 am, Hybrid (Sanctuary or Parish Hall with reservation, or watch the livestream on Zoom/YouTube)

Jenna Crawford, Ministerial Intern


Evangelical, non-denominational Christian pastor Rob Bell teaches, “If you can pay attention in the valley, you’ll certainly be able to pay attention on the mountain.” On this first Sunday of Advent, let’s contemplate the peaks and valleys of the liturgical year as we begin our preparations for Christmas, the peaks and valleys of our lives as Unitarian Universalists as we continue to explore the monthly ministry theme of Covenant, and other peaks and valleys in our lives. What can Advent teach us about waiting well? What would a theology of the valleys look like?

After our Sunday morning livestream service, you’re invited to our Virtual Social Hour on Zoom, starting at 11:30am, or as soon as the Sunday service ends.
