Help Find UUCF’s Next Justice-Centered Theatrical Production

Program Update. Apr. 15, 2019. There’s something magical about the theater. It’s not just the illusions created, the beliefs suspended, the ordinary humans transformed. It’s also the enactment of story by living, breathing people in the room with us, with the potential to be moved, touched and, if we are lucky, transformed by the experience.

A desire to engage the UUCF community with theater arts as a way of enlarging our spiritual lives and expanding our social justice activities led to the creation of the Theater […]

g Ordun

Congregational Treasure. Apr. 15, 2019. Longtime member g Ordun is one of those special people at UUCF who gives much of herself in a quiet and unassuming manner.

Hymn #1009 “Meditation on Breathing.” Some days I sit in my office at UUCF and watch the emails stack up in my inbox and I think, just breathe David, just breathe. This continues if I go on Facebook, or look at the news or think about all the information going in and out of my head on a minute-by-minute basis. The rate of information in this world is dizzying and sometimes it is important for us just to stop and breathe in and breathe […]
