Rev. Nica Eaton-Guinn

Over the Rainbow

Services at 9:15 & 11:00 

Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the most inspirational, visionary leaders of our modern times. He spoke of a world of possibility in which all are treated with dignity and respect. How do we realize possibilities that at times can seem impossible? Join us to explore whether the possibilities and dreams envisioned by visionary leaders lay somewhere over the rainbow, or they are achievable realities?

Aligning our Habits with our Values

Services at 9:15 & 11:00
After her Community Forum the night before, Amy Halpern-Laff will join Reverend Nica to explore the possibility of aligning our habits with our values. If we are serious about honoring the interdependent web of all existence and stemming climate change, what habits might we consider shifting? Join us to explore how to make the world a little healthier for all.

Finding our Way in the Darkness

Services at 915 & 11:00a
“I have faith in the night” writes the poet Rilke. The darkness has gifts that are sometimes hard to perceive. Many of us are navigating challenging times in our personal lives, our community and the world. As we approach the winter solstice, the darkest time of year, we will explore how to find our way during the darkest times.

The Mysterious Journey of being a Unitarian Universalist

Services at 9:15 & 11:00a

As we welcome new members into our midst, we explore what it means to truly be a Unitarian Universalist. Several longtime UUs will share their stories together with Reverend Nica’s thoughts on the essence of Unitarian Universalism. Join us for this special celebratory service featuring our choir.

Surrendering to the Mystery

Services at 9:15 & 11:00
Mystery is an important part of our spiritual lives. There is so much we cannot and will never know in life. How do we want to interact with the mystery of the unknowable? Do we resist it or can we surrender to it? Join us to explore the mystery.

Remembering the Good

On this Sunday before Thanksgiving, in the midst of all the turmoil in the Conejo Valley, we turn our attention to the good in our lives. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the challenges we face, especially at this time. It can feel like a daily onslaught, a constant uphill struggle, juggling disasters, illness and stress. So this Sunday, we’ll intentionally shift our perspective to remember all the good we share – the good that has been, is now and is yet to come. Join us to celebrate gratitude as a community.

“Virtual” Service to Reconnect Amidst Tragedy

10am-11:30am

In what might be a first-ever for CVUUF, we will hold tomorrow’s service “virtually”.

We will however be gathering on Zoom (an internet group platform) from 10 – 11:30. You can join us by phone or live on camera. We will light a chalice, share stories, hear uplifting readings, sing together, mourn the tragedies of these past few days and be in community even when we are physically apart. You can join us at any time during that window, or be with us for the whole time. And if you have CVUUF neighbors nearby, you may want to invite them over so you can have some fellowship, while we’re on the Zoom call together. If you know people who do not have internet, please let them know the phone number they can call tomorrow.

Here is the access information for zoom:

Honoring Our Ancestors

Day of the Dead and All Soul’s Day is a time to honor our ancestors, celebrating them through stories and song. Visiting guest author, Amada Perez, will be sharing stories about her life and ancestry ( www.amadairmaperez.com ). Reverend Nica and Sam Dickerson will lead this intergenerational service. We invite you to bring photos of your relatives and friends who are no longer with us, both from this community and your families to place on our community altar of remembrance. Let us pull from their love and strength so that we may heal what troubles us, and move toward a more joyous future for all generations.
