Climate Justice Sunday

In Buddhism, Indra’s Net envisions all beings as individual jewels set at an infinite number of nodes in a single web. Each jewel reflects the others, each is dependent on the others, each glimmers in the others’ light. When we understand our Oneness with the Earth and all its beings in this way, we hear the call to live in resilient, just, and sustainable communities with new force. Let us stand, and act, in solidarity with hundreds of thousands of people gathering in New York City and elsewhere for this Climate Justice weekend.
Worship Leader: The Rev. Nancy Palmer Jones; Worship Associate: Marnie Singer

Domingo de Justicia Climática

En el budismo, el espacio de Indra concibe a todos los seres como joyas individuales en un número infinito de nodos en una sola red. Cada joya refleja a los otros, cada uno es dependiente de los demás, cada uno brilla en la luz. Cuando entendemos nuestra unidad con la tierra y de todos sus seres de esta manera, hemos oído la llamada a vivir en comunidades resistentes, justas y sostenibles con nueva fuerza. Permítanos estar y actuar, en solidaridad con los cientos de miles de personas reuniendas en la ciudad de Nueva York y otros lugares para este fin de semana la justicia climática.
Dirige: La Rev. Nancy Palmer Jones Asociada de Culto: Marnie Singer

Location: Nursery, Church’s Lower Level
Childcare Staff: Kimberly Fernandez

We provide a safe, clean environment in which to support each child in initiating play activities at the developmental level they manifest.

Three- to five-year-olds: The Spiritually Growing Child

Children will hear the story Old Turtle. When all of creation, trees, stones, ants, the sky, fish, begins arguing over who or what God is, quiet Old Turtle is the only one who has the wisdom and ability to see beyond herself to capture the essence. The debate escalates until Old Turtle finally speaks: "STOP!" People also appear and soon are fighting among themselves over the nature of God. Children will talk about how to live harmoniously as a class.

Grades 1-4: We Are All Connected

Children will have the opportunity to consider how human dignity and tolerance factors into their lives, as well as commit to put forth effort into acting with human dignity and tolerance.They will identify behaviors that show lack of human dignity and tolerance, and recall personal situations where they may have experienced those behaviors. Children will review tools to use with these challenges.

Grades 5-8: Junior High Youth Group – Treasure Everywhere

“Why not let people differ about their answers to the great mysteries of the Universe? Let each seek one's own way to the highest, to one's own sense of supreme loyalty in life, one's ideal of life. Let each philosophy, each world-view bring forth its truth and beauty to a larger perspective, that people may grow in vision, stature and dedication.” — Algernon Black (1932-1972), leader of the New York Society for Ethical Culture.

This workshop introduces participants to the program, and to a consideration of why religions, including Unitarian Universalism, exist—that is, the essential human needs religions serve.

Grades 9-12: Senior High Youth Group – Sundays, 11:30-12:30

The senior high youth group meets from 11:30-12:30 after attending the first part of the 11 a.m. service.  The group offers its members a safe place to share their lives and find support and friendship among open minded and loving peers.  The group engages in discussions about issues relevant to youth’s lives and communities.
