As we move into October 2022, things are picking up at Heritage Church. Our children and youth are resuming their during-worship Religious Education classes and activities. Speaking of worship, our “reimagined” services are offering something for just about everyone. We’re also “reimagining church” itself – what do we want and need, and what are we willing to either work for or pay for in a church – here in this brave new world we find ourselves in?
Meanwhile, several long-time favorites are back: a Men’s Group. Our monthly potluck lunches. Chalice Circles. The Women’s Retreat (offsite). Then there are those activities that never seemed to miss a beat (although they had to adapt) during the pandemic: the Women’s Book Club. Sunday services. Vespers services. Sing Out Sisters. The Choir. And of course, there’s a few new things happening too, including monthly “Dinner Church” and our Banned Books Group.
The bottom line is: Heritage Church is hopping this fall! Laci Adams and I are honored to serve such a vibrant, active Unitarian Universalist community. And we think Heritage is just what Cincinnati needs, right about now.
An important election is coming up, and we offer honest, values-based social justice opportunities to make a difference in our world. A spiritual emptiness seems to pervade our social conversation, and we offer a unique brand of love-centered, this-world-focused spirituality for both those who have been with us a long time, and newcomers as well.
So invite your friends. Share a Sunday – or another weekday program – with them. As the weather begins to grow a bit cooler, wear your Unitarian Universalism on your sleeve. For our children’s sake. For our friends and loved ones’ sake. For our world’s sake.
See you at church!
