Rev. Valerie Freseman

Hurry up and Wait

At this time of the year which marks the beginning of the Christian liturgical season of advent, we will explore the spiritual benefits of learning how to wait.

Bread Communion

A celebration of Thanksgiving for the paths that brought us here, the hands and hearts that nourish us with food and laughter, and the abiding sense of service that we hold dear.  Please bring bread to share, either home-baked or store-bought.  All are welcome.

Question Box Sunday

Got a burning question?  Join us for a totally unrehearsed but thoroughly theological service of answers and questions as Rev. Valerie takes your questions on matters of faith and beyond from the floor.

To Everything, a Season

It’s time to put aside the summer and welcome the winter.  Let’s use the “balance” inherent in this time of year—the Autumn Equinox—as a metaphor for the role of balance in our communal and family relationships—where do we look for inspiration in this task?

Wellspring (Water Communion)

Join us for the Unitarian Universalist tradition of Water Communion, where we celebrate our common life with a ritual of combining water and using it to “water” our collective aspirations for the next year.  Please bring a container of water to use in the service.

Losing My Religion

What is behind the growing tendency of people claiming they are “spiritual but not religious”?  Why are so many in our time finding the word “religion” problematic, and is there a way we can reclaim religion?
