Worship Service, October 13, 2019, 10:30am  “Hawkwing”
Rochelle Ripley, guest speaker, with worship associate Judy Robbins
 

The Promise

hawkwing began with a promise Rochelle Ripley made to her Lakota grandmother to “go home and help the People.”  “Home” is the Cheyenne River Lakota/Sioux Reservation, South Dakota, a land of beauty, wilderness, inspiration and heart wrenching poverty. The Cheyenne River Lakota Reservation is the poorest county in the United States with limited healthcare, a life expectancy of only age 48, 85% unemployment and an average annual income per person of only $2,926.                          

hawkwing brings basic need items: food, clothing, medical supplies, personal care items, books and toys to some 2,600 children and 500 Elders on the Reservation. hawkwing brings doctors, nurses and dentists to the Reservation for health services, and construction volunteers to repair dilapidated homes, community buildings and special projects. hawkwing brings hope, respects culture, supports families, promotes life and keeps promises.

 

Make a Musical Connection: Choir Rehearsals are on Thursdays from 7:00pm to 9:00pm If you are interested in joining the choir or want to give it a try, please contact Director of Music Ministries, Sam Moffett at smoffett@ushartford.com, 860-371-8880, or speak with him after a service.

Religious Education

This week we will have a TFAA followed by age appropriate classes. The nursery will be available during the morning worship hour and then for those 10 and under until 1:45pm. The Youth Group will meet at 9:00am for soup making for Church St. Eats. OWL (Our Whole Lives sexuality curriculum) will meet again this week on Sunday from 3:00-4:30pm.

Unitarian Universalists value a “free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” Our Religious Education program provides a framework for our children as they begin their path of lifespan faith development. Religious Education classes for children include a wide range of religious and philosophical traditions, and integrate a variety of learning styles.  We welcome all families and children, infants through 12th grade.

Contact Rayla D. Mattson at dre@ushartford.com or 860-233-9897 ext. 104 with questions or to volunteer in our classroom. For more information click HERE.

Listen to Annie Sumi.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycfVHR9BW6M          

  • Friday, Nov. 1, 2019   7:30 P.M.  Annie Sumi has been described as a force of nature.

    “Her work is spiritual but not airy fairy, as exemplified by the song ‘In Everything’ off her new album, In the Unknown. ‘There’s a little bit of God in everything,’ she sings in a song filled with references to nature, a song that builds from a simple, acoustic voice-and-guitar verse to a furious storm of vocalizations. ‘I really genuinely feel like when I’m writing, when the songs come to me, they’re not really coming from me.  They’re coming to me,’ Annie said during our tipi chat.”              –
