Greetings and Centering Thought: “In the face of impossible odds, people who love their country can change it.” - Barack Obama

Ringing of the Bells: (3x)

  • Once for those who came before:
    The Tongva peoples who were the original stewards of this land and first called it ‘home.’ We also honor those founding members who imagined and planted this growing congregation
  • Once for those of us here and now:
    For our Members and Friends, our Visitors, our Staff, and our extended UU family who hold, care, and grow this Beloved Community we know as our own.
  • Once for those who will come:
    For all we haven’t met, who will come to call MVUUC their Spiritual Home in the days ahead.


Spirit of Life Hymn

Invocation & Chalice Lighting:

Opening Hymn: # 188 Come, Come Whoever You Are…

Speaking Our Covenant Together:

Love is the doctrine of this Congregation.
The quest of truth its sacrament, and service is its prayer. 
To dwell together in peace,
to seek knowledge in freedom,
to serve the world in fellowship,
to the end that all souls shall grow in harmony with the divine,
thus do we covenant with each other.


Time For All Ages: A Wisdom Tale


Joys and Concerns:

Pastoral Prayer & Meditation:

Hymn: There is a Love’ - Words: Rebecca Parker, Music: Beth Norton

Reading: From “Embracing Hopelessness" ― Miguel A. De La Torre

“Brave and Free: Liberation As Our Greatest Gift” - Rev Maggie Burbank Yenoki

Closing Hymn: # 121 We’ll Build a Land


Chalice Extinguishing:
adapted from “We Are One” Amy Zucker Morgenstern

We extinguish this flame,
But the sparks within us remain.
From each of us,
Love signals out its buzz and hum,
sparkling through space one to another,
Connecting us invisibly, but palpably.

We are one.
And from every window,
Our light shines.

Here are some notes that will help to
enhance our worship experience
for all who are gathered together
both online and in-person: 

* All who plan to attend in-person in the Sanctuary must be fully vaccinated and willing to wear a ppe mask. 

* RE youth and adult attendees have received information from our DLRE Robert regarding their entry through the gate in the parking lot and their masking protocols. Because the children are unable to be vaccinated, we will miss having them with us in the Sanctuary for now.

* Our time of Offering will not include a passing of the basket, but we will provide those in the sanctuary with the opportunity to bring your gifts forward to place them on a special altar/table we will have set up. We will gather both financial gifts of support for MVUUC and also any non-perishable food items you wish to donate to the Beta Center.

* We will be honored to receive your Pledge Cards for our 2021-2022 Stewardship Drive on the offering table or in the drop box outside the Admin Office. 

* Coffee and tea will be available after the service. We will not be sharing food at this early stage of our re-opening. 

We thank our Worship Teams & Technicians who have gone to great lengths to imagine and reimagine our best ways to prepare for a wonderful worship experience for all whether in our Sanctuary or in our Zoom Room.
We also send a big Thank You to
our Greeters and Hospitality Team!
Supporting Our MVUUC Community 
Maintaining our spiritual and emotional connections at MVUUC is more important than ever. For those of you who have financial resources to share, our Congregation is grateful as you continue to make your generous donations to MVUUC. We are here for you all during these uncertain and disruptive times. Our Minister, Staff, and programs will continue to provide nurture and grounding for you. Thank you so much for supporting our life together and helping us to pay our monthly bills (such as utilities.)
