June 7: Legacy

Heather Broadfoot

What is legacy and how does it impact our congregation?  How can we become a legacy building congregation?  How will we be remembered by future generations who also find the UUCRT to be their spiritual home?


June 14: Our Religious Exploration

Rev. Chris J. Antal

Come celebrate our heritage of free religious inquiry and recognize all who have served in the Lifespan Religious Exploration Program. 


June 21: Indigenous Epistemology for Orphans

Alison Fornes

Within us all exists an ancestral memory. The treasures of this memory include ways of knowing the world that reveal a timeless presence, and direct experience of the interconnectedness of all things. These are the ways of knowing that continue today with tribal peoples around the world. Alison will talk about how to access our own indigenous heart - and how to liberate ourselves from our colonized mind.


June 28: General Assembly Sunday

Rev. Chris J. Antal

As Unitarian Universalists gather from around the country in Oregon for the annual meeting of membership congregations, our minister will reflect on his first experience as a "virtual delegate" representing the UUCRT.
