Welcome

The UUFLG invites everyone into our community, without regard to race, gender, age, color, national origin, ethnic background, socioeconomic status, marital status, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity.

 

Important Notice: Due to very high transmission of Covid in Santa Clara County, we made the difficult decision to close the Fellowship building to gatherings for the rest of January, effective January 11, 2022. We will hold Sunday Services via Zoom in January. The hope is that this surge subsides in February and ways to safely manage the Omicron variant emerge to resume in-person gatherings. As with all pandemic plans, this is subject to change. Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility. Stay safe and healthy! –UUFLG Board, Sunday Services Committee & Covid Task Force

Postponed: The Celebration of Life for Ellen Hill originally scheduled for January 15 at 1:00 PM is postponed. Apologies for any inconvenience this caused you. We hope to announce a new date and time in early February and will post information on it here then. Be well.

Sunday Services

As public health conditions allow, services will be held in person when specifically noted. Learn about the status of children/youth and adult small-group activities in our weekly What’s Happening (under the Welcome menu) and on our web calendar.

How to Not Appropriate Dr. King
The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King was prolific, and many of his words speak directly to the heart of universal human struggles and common values. It may be tempting to use his words to argue for whatever point of view *we* wish to put forward, such as when his calls for nonviolence are used as a way for light-skinned folks to “tone-police” people of color. Today we’ll study the words and contexts of Dr. King’s ideas and allow them to help us cultivate true kindness and understanding while divesting ourselves from the mistake of coopting them for divisive purposes. –Rev. Fa Jun, Minister
This service will only be streamed online for remote participation. There is no in-person gathering at the Fellowship this Sunday.

How to Let Go and Start Afresh
New beginnings can be difficult, but with a few key insights, we can rise to the challenge. Among those we’ll explore this morning are how to cultivate forgiveness and let go of the past and how to stay optimistic and motivated in troubled times like these. We’ll explore evidence-based practices to empower ourselves and to invoke a new vision of change for the coming year. –Rev. Fa Jun, Minister
This service will only be streamed online for remote participation. There is no in-person gathering at the Fellowship this Sunday.

Stronger Together

To make our world better, each of us must celebrate and share our unique gifts to nurture our planet. As curious, spiritually independent people, our Fellowship strives to provide an open and supportive environment to explore the creativity, strength, and wisdom within the diverse experiences and aspirations of each of us. We find joy and meaning in such a community. And by working together, we strengthen our connections.
