WEST PARIS — Welcome back after our summer break. Please join us for Sunday worship services at 9 a.m. It is good to be holding worship services once again, and especially during one of the most pleasant of seasons in Maine. All are welcome! For the present time, we will wear masks, but we will still be singing. We will also have coffee hour following the service. 

September 12, September 12 Water Communion, led by The Reverend Fayre Stephenson. Our summer sabbatical will end and the new church year will begin at our traditional Water Communion, a joyous service of ingathering. Those attending will bring a small amount of water from a place that is special to them. At the appointed time during the service, one by one, we’ll pour our water into a large communion bowl. As we add the water, we’ll tell those gathered why the water is special to us.

September 19, Just a Little Bit of Good From the Where You Are. In our second September gathering Maryli Tiemann will join us with a service focused on the energy and power of simple kindness. There will be time after her talk for Reverberations and Stories of Kindness from those who might like to come and share their thoughts at the announcements microphone. Maryli Tiemann is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick. She is one of the founders of Brunswick’s Longfellow Days, a month-long celebration of poetry and the life of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. She was raised a Michigan Roman Catholic, floundered into Maine in the 1970s, was surprised to actually be Buddhist, and continues to stumble among surprising gifts of nature, friendship, and family.

September 26 Our Mission: Not Impossible, led by The Reverend Fayre Stephenson. The word “mission” comes from the Latin for “send.” In English, historically, a mission involved the Church and saving souls. Later the word came to convey something more secular.
