Communications Disruption at the Church

We are currently experiencing technical challenges, and we do not have  phone or internet access at our church building. Staff is continuing to  work, though largely off-site. Staff members can be reached on their  cell phone numbers, which are found in our church directory. Our  Director of Religious Education and Minister continue to have offsite  email access, but is currently inaccessible. General inquiries can be sent to, and Rev. Rebecca will pass your message on to the appreciate staff member or lay leader. Thank you for your patience.

“The Right Way to Right Speech”

Rev. Rebecca Froom and Joan McDonald 

Have you ever received advice that you didn’t want? How do you know if you’re truly being helpful when you try to help someone? This multigenerational service tells the story of Motke the fish peddler, who was helped a little too much by his friends. This story, based on Simms Taback’s version of a Jewish folktale, and adapted by UU minister Rev. Erika Hewitt, leads into an exploration of the Buddhist concept of “right speech,” in which we ask what we can do to communicate in better and healthier ways.

This service will include traditional Klezmer music performed by Klezmer clarinetist, Glenn Dickson, joined by musicians from our very own UFPC band, The Radiators. Glenn Dickson has led the Shirim Klezmer orchestra for many years.
