Upcoming Worship Services

We meet for worship Sundays at 10:30 online in Zoom. Links to streaming worship are in each worship description.

When there's not a global pandemic, worship takes place at the Hollywood Senior Center, 1820 NE 40th Ave., Portland, OR.

Holding on and Letting Go

During this time of global pandemic, our lives have changed dramatically. We are experiencing collective trauma and grief over the loss of loved ones and suffering around the world. What are you holding on to for inspiration and hope? Are there things you need to let go of to welcome positive change?

Rev. Amy Freedman is a lifelong Unitarian Universalist who has served congregations in Newport, RI, Martha’s Vineyard, and Boston, MA. Amy currently serves as the Minister of Religious Education of First Parish in Concord, MA. Amy is Mark Alter’s cousin and looks forward to joining us.

Doing Our Best to Be Human

In this time of "Great Unraveling", as author T. Thorn Coyle calls it, when our burdens feel too great to overcome, how can we come together as a faith community? How can we affirm our UU values and our shared humanity?  Kari Gottfried was raised in the UU Fellowship of Corvallis, Oregon, and is now a rising sophomore at Wellesley College outside of Boston. She is currently an undergraduate summer intern at the First UU Congregation of Ann Arbor.

Heartmind Training - The Four Immeasurables

Your most precious resource is your attention. How you direct your attention determines the quality of your life and how you contribute to others. In these times, we have an opportunity to contribute to a global shift in the way we do things and the consciousness we bring to it. The helpfulness of contribution you make depends on the heart and mind with which you engage.

LaShelle Lowe-Charde (wiseheartpdx.org) invites us to talk about how learning to direct your attention helps you to bring a particular quality of heartmind. Specifically let’s touch on the teaching of the four immeasurables: Sympathetic Joy (mudita), Loving-kindness (metta), Compassion (karuna), and Equanimity (upekkha).
