What Does it Take To Burn?
March 22, 2015 (Two services, at 9:30 and 11:00)

Without a chalice, our flame could not burn. The flame is bright, but how can we hold focus on the flame and that which allows it to burn?

Giving Up, Giving In, Giving Over
March 1, 2015 (Two services, at 9:30 and 11:00)
Rev. Darcy Baxter

How can we UUs could engage with the Christian community's spiritual practice of Lent - what does it mean to promise to give something up? To give ourselves over?

Rev. Darcy Baxter

What kind of love does UUFSC have to offer Stanislaus County?

Honoring and Serving Those with Dementia and Their Loved Ones
February 8, 2015 (Two services, at 9:30 and 11:00)

How can we as UUs reach out in love to our members afflicted with dementia and those who love and care for them? Jim Sparkman, Bob Jacobson, and Doreen Souza, who have knowledge in this area will share their reflections on how we can begin. We'll have a conversation on the topic after the second service in the conference room in the block building. We invite you all to join the conversation.

Love, Moral Authority and Reproductive Justice
February 1, 2015 (Two services, at 9:30 and 11:00)
Rev. Darcy Baxter

Leading up to Valentine's Day, UU's are asked to explore what it means to express love. Rev. Darcy shares how and why reproductive justice has been a major way she has expressed love in her Unitarian Universalist ministry.

Note: We leave some previous sermon topics here, to give you an idea of the things we talk about. It is easier to show "eclectic" than to spell it. We have several sermon collections as well.
