Upcoming Sunday Services & Programs at Live Oak Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

Worship_leader_Stromer_inviting_embracing_meditationJoin us on Sundays! We offer spirited and thoughtful worship services -- plus fellowship -- two (2) Sundays a month (1st and 3rd Sundays of each month) at 4:00 p.m. at 1700 Santa Clara Avenue in Alameda (in the sanctuary of Christ Episcopal Church).

We provide Religious Exploration programming for children and youth on the 1st and 3rd Sundays, too. Of course, kids of all ages are always welcome to stay in the sanctuary with their parent(s). We often have a few young ones there. Likewise, parents are always welcome in the children's classroom.

Many friends and members stay after worship for a fellowship Accessible icon and assisted listening device iconmeal. Everyone is invited to stay. It's a terrific opportunity to get to know a few people as we break bread together. We hope you will consider joining us for the meal.

Accessibility is important to us. The sanctuary, guild room, parish hall, bathrooms, and courtyard are wheelchair accessible. We also offer assisted listening devices in the sanctuary. And we have large-print Orders of Service (programs) and hymnals. Just ask the greeter at the welcome table for any of these. And please do tell us if you have other needs that we might be able to accommodate.

Upcoming Sunday Services & Programs -- 2017

Sunday, September 3, 4:00 p.m.
Thread of Hope – or – Make Grace Happen
Worship led by Kate Hand

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance. ~ Robert Kennedy

You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand. ~ Woodrow Wilson

Join Worship Leaders Kate Hand and Jay Roller in an exploration of the moral imperative of creating hope.


Sunday, September 17, 4:00 p.m.
Tikkun Olam: Repairing the World

Worship led by Richard Stromer

In this service, our annual observance of the Jewish High Holy Days, we will explore the Judaic concept of Tikkun Olam, a Hebrew phrase which means “Repairing the World.” Having roots as old as the second century, Tikkun Olam refers to the idea that our world is a broken one in need of repair and healing and that each of us bears a responsibility to help in that critical work. Today that term has become associated with both social activism and the pursuit of social justice, concerns which are central to our faith as Unitarian Universalists. This service will also feature our annual “Ritual of Letting Go,” an observance which encourages us to self-reflection, hope, and renewal at this season of the year.
