Upcoming Worship Services
BFUU Fellowship Hall 1924 Cedar Street
(at the corner of Cedar St. and Bonita Ave.)
all services are on Sundays from 10:30 AM to around noon, unless otherwise noted
The Fellowship Hall (1924 Cedar St) is accessible by a ramp on the Bonita Avenue side of the Hall, and has a T-Loop system to enhance audio for those with hearing aids.
Starting October 31st (All Hallow's Eve/Hallowe'en) begins a week of honoring our Ancestors of blood and spirit (All Saints Day), our Beloved Dead (All Soul's/Araw ng mga Patay/Dias de Muertos) who have crossed over. This is also considered the New Year of Earth-honoring traditions, marking the cycle of birth, life, renewal. Yes, there are so many New Years within the calendar year (consider Jewish Rosh HashaNa in September.)
We will deepen our connection with meditation, music, praying, singing, and visualizing our future for a better world, and ways to take steps to attain what we envision. Evelie will have Special Guests join us.
Worship Service November 8: Sacred Waiting
Pastor Jacqueline K. Duhart (she/her)
As one of my seminary professors stated, “There are some times in history that are THICK times. So much is happening and in flux.” Now is such a time. Our persona and communal lives are very pregnant For some, waiting for the labor and birth process to begin in earnest is painfully overdue. Our national and global connections are strained at best. What’s a human to do? How shall we BE during this time of watching and waiting? Please join us as we explore what it means to brave the waiting and to stay connected in kindness and bright hope.
Worship Service November 15: Adapting to Adapting
Rev. Marsh Agobert (he/him)
Here’s the News: No matter which way the election goes…We’ll have to adapt to what comes next. Yet no matter which way the nation and the world swing, the question arises: will we adapt to the new world and/or will we co-create this next world. Will we still be in transition, not yet at rest? Rest is just a moment in change. So, yes…that will always be true. Forever more, as long as we exist.
What the heck! Let’s get good at this.
Worship Service November 22: Our Democracy Going Forward
Rev. Dr. Carrie Knowles (she/her)
Rev. Dr. Carrie Knowles will summarize the state of our nation, twenty days after the 2020 election, and consider the future we face in the halls of power: the presidency, the Senate, the House of Representatives, and the Supreme Court. What tasks may we face, as citizens of a country in transition?
Worship Service November 29: Cathedral of the World

It behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping we are becoming. — Ralph Waldo Emerson. Reflections and conversation about the UU tradition and our BFUU spiritual practices, with words by Rev. Dr. Forrest Church.
