Schedule for Upcoming Services & Sharing Circles

We are back live and in person each Sunday of the month
More than two years ago, the Unitarian Congregation of Taos created real community on a virtual platform when we started meeting on Zoom for services and Sharing Circles. Now that most or all of us have some level of immunity—whether through vaccination or natural immunity—UCOT is meeting in person once again at the Bent Lodge, 124 Camino de Santiago, Taos, NM 87571. See the schedule below for details.

Sunday, November 27, 11 a.m. — Sharing Circle: Open Topic
(in person, Bent Lodge, Taos)

 

Using a virtual “talking stick,” each person can speak in turn, sharing whatever is in their hearts or minds in the moment.

For this Sharing Circle, we will meet in person at the Bent Lodge, Taos, NM. Masks are required.

 


Sunday, December 4, 2022, 11 a.m. — Service: What Keeps Us Warm?
Rev. Gary Kowalski
(in person, Bent Lodge, Taos)

Probably you have seen videos that show a flock of starlings in synchronous flight. To­gether, thousands of individual birds resemble an amoeba, a single-celled organism with its own will and dynamism. Are human societies like a flock of blackbirds, self-organizing sys­tems that can generate a life that is larger and more purposeful than might be apparent from the dystopian randomness that meets the eye? This morning Gary summons a message most appropriate for the coming cold days. Even in the hardest and most difficult of seasons, an emergent wave of cooperation and common cause could be rising.

For this Service, we will meet in person at the Bent Lodge, Taos, NM. Masks are required.


Sunday, December 11, 2022, 11 a.m. — Sharing Circle: Peace & Peacefulness
(in person, Bent Lodge, Taos)

It’s been 2,000 years since the Prince of Peace was born, and many centuries more since one was prophesied in Isaiah. And yet war continues to destroy. Can there be an expectation of peace in any lifetime or is it unattainable? Who is the Prince of Peace? Maybe it’s each one of us contributing to a field of peace. Come share your feelings about peace and about what it means to be peaceful.

For this Sharing Circle, we will meet in person at the Bent Lodge, Taos, NM. Masks are required.


Sunday, December 18, 2022, 11 a.m. — Service: Soul & Solstice
Rev. Munro Sickafoose
(in person, Bent Lodge, Taos)

Here in the northern hemisphere, the winter solstice marks the beginning of the return of the light, and the springtime to come. That return is through the depths of the cold and dark, the time of the soul in the yearly cy­cle. Our souls need particular attention this time of year. Let us tend them together on this day!

 

For this Service, we will meet in person at the Bent Lodge, Taos, NM. Masks are required.


Saturday, December 24, 2022 (Christmas Eve), 6 p.m. — Service: The Deep Spiritual Significance of The Holy Family and the Origins of Christmas
Rev. Jeanne Montclair
(in person, Bent Lodge, Taos)

“Hope for a truly cosmic faith is kindled and fanned into full flame” (Tom Harpur) as we acknowledge the truths in our shared religious history. By probing the depths of belief our deep connections to our planet and the entire human family is revealed.

 

For this Service, we will meet in person at the Bent Lodge, Taos, NM. Masks are required.


Sunday, December 25, 2022 (Christmas Day), 11 a.m. — Sharing Circle: Open Topic
(in person, Bent Lodge, Taos)

We will have a Christmas Day Sharing Circle with an open topic. Feel free to share Christmas stories from bygone days—or anything else you have on your heart and mind.

For this Sharing Circle, we will meet in person at the Bent Lodge, Taos, NM. Masks are required.
