This month’s theme is “Generosity & Reimagining the Common Good”

    Reimagining the Common Good is impossible without evoking the power of generosity. We are implored to be a Good Samaritan, for at one time or another we will surely be the person who is attacked and lying along the side of the road. Generosity, in the words of M. Scott Peck, transforms our hard eyes of judgment into the soft eyes of respect. Generosity is a redemptive act, a saving grace because we do not have to be generous, but when we are so much good is created. What compels generosity? Compassion? Duty? Lovingkindness? Gratitude? Faith? Empathy? Humility? Love? Generosity is the mustard seed of which Jesus spoke. This least of all seeds becomes one of the greatest herbs.

    In-Person Worship – What to Expect

    MCUUF is currently offering services in a variety of formats. Usually, the first Sunday of the month is virtual only, on Zoom. The second and fourth Sundays are multiplatform, offered both at our meeting space in the Rockford Grange and online. And the third Sunday is in person only at the Grange; no Zoom is available for this service. Any changes to this schedule will be announced well in advance. On these “hybrid” Sundays, screens allow those attending in person and those on Zoom to see and interact with one another. We ask that in-person attendees be up to date on their COViD vaccinations and stay home if they are feeling ill. Our meeting space is well ventilated, we offer plenty of space between seats, and we have hand sanitizer available. Masks are optional but recommended during periods of higher transmission Children are warmly welcomed in the service, and we also have a child care attendant who can entertain the younger set in our adjoining “wiggle room.” For more information contact the office at [email protected]  or leave us a message at 541.241.6771. And we look forward to having you join us on Sunday morning.
