An Invitation to join me at my congregation on Sunday

This Sunday (August 14) my church has a special service led by a Buddhist meditation teacher who is also a member of our congregation.  Rich Howard’s sermon is entitled:  What is this “Letting Go”?

“Just let go,” we often hear. Let go of that old relationship, let go of old habits, let go of the need for approval. But what does letting go mean? When does it become denial? And who exactly is letting go?

Rich is a leader in Sacramento Insight Meditation and is a former president of our congregation, where he and his wife, Mary, raised their kids.  All guests and visitors are welcome to hear his an exploration of this interesting and useful topic..

Our service is at 10:00 AM at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Sacramento, 2425 Sierra Blvd.  It’s a good idea for guests to come 10-15 minutes early to find your way through the parking lot, receive a name tag, and find a good seat.  Please hang around afterwards for refreshments and conversation, if you like.  The congregation enjoys getting to know our guests.  Our website is: http://www.uuss.org.

Religious Education for Children:   Younger guests are welcome to visit our Summer ArtWorks! program.  August 14 and 21, we have Story Time Yoga (a cool program led by a mother of two kids in the church).  No need to bring equipment for this, just loose-fitting clothes.  Teens are welcome to participate (and assist!) or to stay in the services.    (We also have nursery care for ages 0 through 5 with two paid care providers in Classroom 11, but your baby is welcome in the service or the nearby Baby Comfort Room, in our Bookstore.) Kids are welcome to enjoy refreshments or the playground after the service.  Note:  after church on Aug. 21, we have the Swan Brothers balloon circus here for an annual show of fun and funny forms.  All families welcome to that show.
