Schedule for Upcoming Services & Sharing Circles

We are back live and in person each Sunday of the month

Following the pandemic, most or all of us have some level of immunity – whether through vaccination or natural immunity – and UCOT is meeting in person once again at the Bent Lodge, 124 Camino de Santiago, Taos, NM 87571.

Sunday, March 3, 2024, 11 a.m. — Service: Co-creation with the Divine,
Rev. Jeanne Montclair

Just when we think we are victims of this life, we may want to recognize and claim the power we do have: to set clear intentions and ask the Divine for guidance and help. Too often we feel as though we walk alone through difficult times. We may feel as if we are asking, but not receiving. Clarity can be difficult to maintain in today’s society, where so many distractions pull us away from our own heart’s wisdom. Divine grace comes to those who are open to putting in the work to heal, to ask, and to receive.

Sunday, March 10, 2024, 11 a.m. — Sharing Circle: Teachers,
Mimi Owensby

Thinking back to our school days, we can all remember teachers we did or didn’t like, those we respected and those we didn’t. But did we stop having teachers when we became adults? Think of mentors who set good examples for us or elders who gave us sage advice – teachers all. Who were they and what did we learn from them? If you were to write a letter of thanks to the one whose wise words were the most meaningful, what would you say? Join us as we reminisce about our personal experience with teachers.

Sunday, March 17, 2024, 11 a.m. — Special Service: This I Believe,
Be Scott

“This I Believe” is an international organization engaging people in writing and sharing essays describing the core values that guide their daily lives. Over 125,000 of these essays, written by people from all walks of life, are archived on the website ThisIBelieve.org, heard on public radio, chronicled through books, and featured in weekly podcasts. The project is based on the popular 1950s radio series of the same name, hosted by Edward R. Murrow. On Sunday, March 17, the Unitarian Congregation of Taos will celebrate this tradition by inviting four people to share their core values/ beliefs that have guided their lives. If you feel strongly about something that fits into this category, please consider writing and sharing your essay with us. Send submissions to Be Scott at , and let us know if the essay is yours or someone else’s. Also estimate how long you think your piece will take to read (it should be no longer than seven minutes). If we have multiple short essays, there may be time for more than four readers.

Sunday, March 24, 2024, 11 a.m. — Sharing Circle: Open Topic,
Mimi Owensby

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

 

 

Sunday, March 31, 2024, 11 a.m. — Fifth Sunday Program: The Osage and the Killers of the Flower Moon, Julian Spalding

Julian Spalding, a member of our congregation and of the Osage tribe of Oklahoma, will present about his ancestral connection to the Osage Reign of Terror described in the book and movie “Killers of the Flower Moon.” He recommends reading the book or watching the movie by that name prior to the presentation.
