Wonder and Welcome    
Rev. Deborah Cayer
Music: Wuudwhims

The British writer, G.K. Chesterton asks, “How can we contrive to be at once astonished at the world and yet at home in it?”   Our Soul Matters theme this month is “Awe,” and in this service we’ll explore our capacity for awe as we contemplate our existence in this wild world so full of mystery. Rev. Cayer, worship leader.  Wuudwhims offer the music.

Inherently Worthy, Deeply Connected
Rev. Deborah Cayer
Music: Beloved Community Chorus

If it were laid out full length, the AIDS Memorial Quilt would now be more than 50 miles long. Yet even at this size, it does not begin to reflect the number of people who have died from the disease, who live with it, and the stunning numbers around the world, including the US, who continue to become infected each year. December 1 is World AIDS Day around the globe, and the focus of our service this morning.

One Wild and Precious Life

Cayer, worship leader; Todd Resly, Worship Associate.

A Larger Hope
Rev. Deborah Cayer
Music: Beloved Community Chorus

Our Universalist ancestors knew that the world isn’t perfect, yet they believed that a better world is always possible. What larger hope is there for us today, especially in light of polarized divisions among people with different views? Rev. Cayer, worship leader, Cheryl Fenner Brown, Worship Associate. Beloved Community Chorus shares the gift of music. Music Program Listening Sessions will take place after the second service in the Music Room and Library.

Sources of Love
Rev. Deborah Cayer
Music: Eno River Singers

In the early part of our annual All Souls service we’ll joyfully welcome ERUUF’s newest members.  We’ll also have the chance to place pictures of loved ones on the Ancestor’s Table and later we’ll light candles in their memory as we bring attention to larger possibilities. Rev. Cayer and Rev. Brett lead the service; Henry Amador-Batten serves as Worship Associate. Eno River Singers share the gift music. Music Program Listening Sessions will take place after the second service in the Chapel and Sanctuary.
