Sunday Schedule:

10:00 Sunday Service
11:05 Children's and Adult Religious Education and Corner Forum
Corner Forum

The Corner Forum is a lively discussion group that meets after service at 11:05 in the corner of the church.

Discussions are provocative, opinionated, sometimes-argumentative, always interesting. Often we start out sharing feelings about the just-completed service, then go to any topic anyone wants to discuss. Please join us!

Our Affirmation

From all that dwell below the skies
Let songs of hope and faith arise;
Let peace, goodwill on earth be sung
Through every land by every tongue.

All ages are invited to attend our worship service. Anything said at our services is for your intellectual and spiritual stimulation; no one is asked to agree or acquiesce to any doctrine or creed. Instead, you are free to seek the truth for yourself according to the dictates of your own reason and conscience. All are encouraged to give input and suggestions for speakers as it is a vital part of our church's spiritual growth.

Fire of Commitment
Susan Yarbrough

 

As many Unitarian Universalist churches and fellowships extinguish the chalice at the end of our worship, we talk about carrying the fire of commitment with us. But keeping our individual and collective flames alive is not always easy. 

This Sunday, let’s think together about how we can avoid personal and congregational burnout, stir the embers, encourage each other to spiritual growth, and warm ourselves to the continued work of repairing the world. 

Susan Yarbrough is a member of this First Unitarian - Museum District Campus.  She now lives in Austin and has recently completed her first year of study at Leadville Lombard seminary in Chicago.

A Noble Harvest for Organized Justice in Texas
Rev. Chuck Freeman

 

 In the late 1880’s the lives of Rev. James Billings and his wife Mary were fully immersed in promoting Universalism in Texas. They founded the Universalist Convention in Texas and All Souls Church in Hico. 

They lamented that people took “much more pains to support their partial, cruel, and sorrow producing faith, while we do much less to support this most blessed faith.” They warned that “organized error will outdistance unorganized truth every time.” However, they firmly believed that “we have a grand future before us for a noble harvest in Texas.” 

The Texas UU Justice Ministry is here to fulfill this promise!  

Rev. Chuck Freeman has been in the ministry since 1977 serving Church of Christ and Unitarian Universalist congregations. He is the founding minister of the Free Souls Church in Round Rock, Texas. Church is a founding member of the Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry and its Executive Director.

This Is Our Earth
Randy Partain

 

Earth signifies realization, bringing our vision into reality, fruition, culmination, committing to long-term actions that will create true transformation. Earth is our planet... our planet. But what does it mean to have ownership of a planet?

Earth as Source Forever Turning
Leonora Montgomery

 

Is the earth as we know it a metaphor for stability, for ultimate reliability?  Or is earth today a metaphor for what is missing?

She received a B.A. degree from Wellesley College in 1944, a doctorate in  Religious Studies from Rice Univ. in 1985 and was ordained by Emerson Church in 1987.

She has served on the Southwest UU District Board, the Board of Meadville Lombard Theological School, the UUA Presidents Council, and the Wellesley College Unitarian Universalist Chaplaincy Advisory Board.
