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).

Kids of all ages are always welcome to stay in the sanctuary with their parent(s). We often have a few young ones there. At the back of the sanctuary there is a carpeted area with a child-sized table and chairs, art supplies, and a few toys for kids. There are also a few cloth bags with quiet toys that children may play with as they sit in the pews by a parent. Some kids choose to sit in the back and quietly read or play. (We hope soon to once again offer a children's religious exploration program as an alternative for kids (preschool age & older.)

We are always delighted when visitors join members and friends after worship to chat or ask questions. And many stay for a fellowship Accessible icon and assisted listening device iconmeal. 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.

Preaching from the Housetops
Rev. Előd Szabó, Transylvanian Unitarian minister

The fiddler on the roof is a well-known symbol for the desire to find joy and happiness in very uncertain times such as we are now experiencing. Likewise, a preacher on the housetop is a person who always remembers who sent him/her and the message to his/her people. How do Transylvanian Unitarians try to take the challenge and speak out?

Előd Szabó was born in Kolozsvár, Transylvania. He comes from a long line of ministers including his grandfather who was bishop of the Hungarian Unitarian Church from the 1970's to 1990's.  Since 2007 he has been a minister in the village of Ürmös. He lives with his wife Kata, a nursery school teacher, and their two young sons. He is in the area for post-graduate studies this year at Starr King School for the Ministry in Berkeley, focusing on homiletics and other fields of study which will help him better serve when he returns home.
