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

    If we are to reimagine the Common Good, then we must support the cultivation of humility. Its opposite, arrogance, is a recipe for selfishness and a race to the lowest  common denominator and common good. In the West, humility has not been a virtue. In the East, it is central to Buddhism and Confucianism. In Buddhism, humility is implicit in the concept of right view and right intention. Confucian emphasis on modesty and respect for others are central to humility. Philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre highlights humility as being crucial for moral development and living in community. Humility promotes collaboration, emphasizes integrity and accounta- bility, counteracts selfishness and entitlement, and cultivates a culture of respect and inclusion. All of these are necessary to forge the Common Good with others.

    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.
