Worship

While our UUs of Greater Pittsburgh church buildings remain mostly closed due to Covid-19 precautions, several of our worship teams are collaborating to create a weekly shared pulpit or common worship experience where all are welcome - Greater Pittsburgh UUs, free-range UUs, moved away folks, seekers, anyone can join. Some congregations are also hosting their own fellowship time after the shared time ends. And some congregations are still offering their own weekly or occasional worship as their size and resources allow.
Please send submissions to calendar @ uupittsburgh.org.

Summer 2020 has been described as a moment of racial reckoning. Black people, along with allies, took to the streets to protest police brutality and anti-Black racism. However, with those months of intense activism behind us, those committed to social justice must ask "What do we do now?" It is easy to lose energy and purpose in the struggle against white supremacy. As Unitarian Universalists, committed to this struggle, it is important that we continue to engage and support anti-racism work through spiritual practice.

10:30 AM - First Unitarian Church of Pittsburgh | " ‘The Wind in the Willows’ – A Sacred Text for the Season" led by Erica Shadowsong | youtu.be/-HXK-Mvfvus
The season between the winter solstice and the spring equinox, often called Imbolc by pagans, is usually thought of as a season of purification. What relevance can that have for us today? "The Wind in the Willows" is a beloved classic that brilliantly and lovingly connects with the seasons of the earth and our lives, in the stories of Rat, Mole, Badger, and Toad. In particular, this text captures the inexplicable spirit of this time of emergence from the doldrums of winter in a way that can be spiritually compelling as much as it is joyful. Join in marking the season of purification in a celebration and exploration through reflecting on one of the most beloved books of all time, for all ages!
