Our Director of Lifespan
We, the members of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Spartanburg, affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person and celebrate the long-awaited and hard-won right of same-sex couples to marry. This is a great victory for liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all people. When any among us are oppressed and denied basic rights, we all suffer. This expansion of basic civil rights to all couples will strengthen families and communities, reinforcing the fabric of our society with justice and equity. We stand on the side of love, celebrating freedom realized, grateful to those who never gave up and helped usher in this new day of equality under the law.
Sunday, December 21, 9:45, Living without Answers
Sunday, December 21, 11:00, The Gifts of Chalica: Joy, Rev. Michelle
Throughout December we will turn our attention to the uniquely UU observance of Chalica; a fairly "nUU" holiday that celebrates our Seven Principles. Rather than trying to fit this observance into one week, we will take our time and savor each moment and morsel. We will weave a tapestry of faith that includes world religions, our Jewish and Christian heritage, and our Principles and Sources.
Christmas Eve Service
6:30, Wednesday, December 24
Christmas Eve (Wednesday the 24th) will be the culmination of our Gifts of Chalica as we bear witness to the rebirth of Love. Do not miss this meaningful and musical service! 6:30 p.m.
