Rev. Gil Caldwell, guest minister

Regardless of how one views the Bible, it is filled with illustrations appropriate for today. Matthew 18:12 in the King James Version “speaks” of “90 and 9 sheep and the 1 who has gone astray.” The 99% Wall Street Occupiers seek to bring the 1% who have financially gone astray, back into the fold. “The more things change, the more they remain the same.” Music by Helen Kho.


Gilbert H. Caldwell is a retired African American United Methodist Church minister. He was active in the Civil Rights Movement and was acquainted with UU Minister Rev. Jim Reeb who was attacked in Selma and died a few days later. He was one of the founders of Black Methodists for Church Renewal and United Methodists of Color for a Fully Inclusive Church.

MONTHLY THEME:

May - GRACE

God, give us grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things which should be changed, and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other.  ~ Reinhold Niebuhr

Grace comes into the soul, as the morning sun into the world; first a dawning, then a light; and at last the sun in his full and excellent brightness.  ~ Thomas Adams

Statement of Conscience

UUCMC Statement of Conscience on Racial Justice

At the Congregational Meeting on Sunday, March 20, 2016 the Members unanimously adopted the UUCMC​ ​Statement of Conscience on Racial Justice. The Statement was created by members of the Congregation's Racial Justice Task Force​, Ann Sherwood and Libby Schoenwolf and chaired by Aimee VanDuyne. Reverend Virginia Jarocha Ernst applauded the members. "Adoption of this statement allows us to speak in one voice against racism and acts of bigotry," Rev. Virginia said, "and be more active in the community outside of our walls. This is especially crucial at a time when a voice of love and justice is so needed."
