Building Blocks of Life

Building Blocks of Life

November 05, 2017
Rev. Justin Schroeder

We know that DNA is the essential building block for all of life. But more than just DNA is needed to build a fruitful, healthy, and vibrant human life. Trust is a critical building block, a foundation upon which we can build a life strong enough to carry us through heartbreak and setback. As we begin our “Sources of Trust” sermon series, we will wonder together: In what do you place your trust? What holds you when there seems to be nothing to hold on to? In a world that can feel untrustworthy, what are your sources of trust?

Join us for worship on Sunday, Nov. 5 at 9:30 or 11:15 a.m.

November Worship Theme: Sources of Trust
When Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses on the door of Wittenberg Castle Church in 1517, he started a conversation about faith that has been going on for centuries for Christians, and by way of religious genealogy, Unitarian Universalists. Is “faith” simply an assent or agreement with a set of belief statements or is “faith” a question of trust? Where do you place your trust? Where do you find your strength? What holds you when there is nothing to hold onto? As Unitarian Universalists, we state that our sources of faith and trust come from: Direct experience of that transcending mystery that creates and upholds life; The words and deeds of prophetic people which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice and compassion; The wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life; Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves; Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science; And spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature. This month we ask: ”What are your sources of trust?”
