 “The moment we choose to love, we begin to move toward freedom, to act in ways that liberate ourselves and others.” - bell hooks. The Reverend Deanna Vandiver, co-director of the Center for Ethical Living and Social Justice Renewal and community minister for the Greater New Orleans Unitarian Universalist cluster, will join us on July 9th as we explore how to show up faithfully with more love.

July 16, 2017 - 9:30am; 11:15 am

We’ve reached that 12-month anniversary of the events of last summer. Without telling all the stories, an impossible feat, let’s ask, “Where are you now?” What voices have still to be heard? Reverend Steve Crump has invited some friends to accompany him in our morning of worship.

July 23, 2017 - 9:30am; 11:15 am

Our theme this year has been “The Church That Shows Up.” In this service, church members reflect on how the concept of “The Church That Shows Up” has affected them, either as a receiver or a giver of the Gift of Showing Up.  As you listen to their stories, think about your own experience of the gifts that come with showing up at our church and how it has challenged and or supported you.

July 30, 2017 - 9:30am; 11:15 am

Got points?  Are your points expiring soon?  Are you tempted to purchase extra points?  Are we a culture crazed in selling and accumulating points for happiness or nirvana? Reverend Steve Crump had a point-securing experience of his own recently and reveals, confessionally, what happened.
