“God Talk” (UU Theologies #6)

Temple Adat Shalom at 1:30 p.m.

The idea of an omniscient and all-powerful God doesn’t resonate for most UUs. What are the ideas of God that do interest us? This is the sixth in a 10-part series on UU theologies, informed by the book A House for Hope: The Promise of Progressive Religion for the Twenty-First […]

“The Silencing of Values”

Temple Adat Shalom at 1:30 p.m.

The forces of advertising and entertainment work hard to make us feel terrible about ourselves. And then we buy things to try and make ourselves feel better. How do we resist the flood of messages that surround us? How do we create a life that honors our values? Today is […]

“What Brings Us Together”

We will meet for worship at 1:30 p.m. at Temple Adat Shalom, 15905 Pomerado Rd, Poway, CA 92064.

“All is Bright” Christmas Eve Service

We gather at a time of longest night to honor one of the most significant holy days in the Christian tradition. Our service includes traditional Christmas hymns and communal candle lighting. Childcare is not available for this service.

“Seasons and Landscapes”

Sometimes life feels easy and joyful, like a day at the beach. Sometimes life feels slow and hard, like slogging through a swamp. Today we consider the different landscapes and seasons of life and what we might learn from them. This is the third Sunday of Advent.

“What Saves Us” (UU Theologies #4)

What does salvation mean to Unitarian Universalists? Do we need saving, and if so, from what? This is the fourth in a 10-part series on UU theologies, informed by the book A House for Hope: The Promise of Progressive Religion for the Twenty-First Century by Buehrens and Parker. This is the first Sunday of Advent.

“Towards Spiritual Maturity”

We come to church yearning for . . . something. Friendship, of course. Connection. But also yearning for deep spiritual challenge and engagement. This morning we consider what spiritual and emotional maturity look like.

“Are Humans Good or Evil?” (UU Theologies #3)

We will be meeting at our Chalice building, 2324 Miller Avenue in Escondido

UUs Affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Does that mean we think all people are good? This is the third in a 10-part series on UU theologies, informed by the book A House for Hope: The Promise of […]

“We Call Our Beloved Dead” All-Church Service

Whether you call it Samhain, Dia de los Muertos, or All Hallows’ Eve: this is the season to remember and honor our ancestors and beloved dead. Today we gather for our annual service in memory and celebration of those who have gone before us.

Please email photos of deceased loved ones (pets too!) before October 25 […]
