Is it resurrection? Is it renewal? Is it joyful? Is it uncomfortable?

Next Service: Sunday April 5, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. A Special Video message from Rev. Pat Jobe - "Heroes and Heroines"
Mary Chapin Carpenter has not only had an impactful career as a singer/songwriter, many of her songs have offered a prophetic vision. Though Heroes and Heroines was never a big hit on the radio, the song speaks to UU values that require courage and steady adherence to the best we find in ourselves and others. Rev. Pat Jobe will talk about the song and a video of Josh Jofen performing the sing will be posted shortly thereafter.
Rev. Pat Jobe will be speaking to us over a video that will be posted on our Facebook page (Facebook.com/uulowcountry) Sunday Morning. We also will be posting a Prelude and Postlude video featuring our pianist John Sheppard. And lastly we will be posting a video of a member of our 7 Principles music group (Josh Jofen) performing his own rendition of Mary Chapin Carpenter's Heroes and Heroines.
Join us at Facebook.com/uulowcountry on Sunday morning.

Sunday March 22, 2020 10:00a.m. A Live Streamed Service with Rev. Charlie Tyler: "Principle 2 - Justice, Equity and Compassion in Human Relations" *Video and Audio*
“Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations points us toward something beyond inherent worth and dignity. It points us to the larger community. It gets at collective responsibility. It reminds us that treating people as human beings is not simply something we do one-on-one, but something that has systemic implications and can inform our entire cultural way of being".

An old saw says the perfect is the enemy of the good. In the context of the UU Congregation Of The Lowcountry there is much good to celebrate. Luckily we don't parse our goodness on the blade of perfection. Rev. Jobe returns to celebrate the good and encourage us to give each other a good word in the midst of troubled waters.

Sunday March 1, 2020 10:00a.m. "Principle One: The inherent worth and dignity of every person" Rev. Charlie Tyler
‘Just to be is a blessing. Just to live is holy,’ the great twentieth-century Rabbi Abraham Heschel wrote. Unitarian Universalists affirm the inherent worth and dignity of each person as a given of faith—an unshakeable conviction calling us to self-respect and respect for others.

Our 6th UU source is not something far removed or designed only for others. We are, in many ways, all part pagan, and we should be proud of our "earth-centered traditions...and harmony with the rhythms of nature."
Rev. Hood acknowledges his debt to two sermons prepared in 2015 by Rev. Dr. J. Carl Gregg.

Our Sixth Source for the Wisdom that informs our Seven Principles is the natural world, the observable cycle of life – what is sometimes called Pagan or Earth-Centered religion. In the Ancient world, this was the realm of Superstition and Fear-based thought; in the Modern world, it is the realm of Science.
Where does “Love” fit in? Is love a scientific concept, a natural phenomenon? Or is it purely a Social construct,, a tool to sell cards, candy and flowers? If it is one of these, what does it have to do with Religion? Let’s talk about it.

Sunday February 9, 2020 "Another Dialogue on Traveling with Spirit" Rev. Pat Jobe and Rev. Travis Smith *Video and Audio*
Rev. Pat Jobe brings along another minister on the journey to new spiritual horizons. Rev. Travis Smith is a veteran minister in both the Baptist and Methodist traditions, but has found friends among UU's and hopes his visit with Jobe and Lowcountry will inspire us. They may even pull off another dialogue like we heard on January 19, but don't bet the farm. That dialogue set the bar pretty high.
