“What We Give Up Willingly” – with Guest Speaker Rev. Gretchen Haley
Date(s) - 06/14/2020
10:00 am - 11:00 am
Two Rivers Unitarian Universalist
This Sunday at 10 am, we have created a service around a homily given by the Rev. Gretchen Haley, who served TRUU back in 2010. Rev. Gretchen is now Senior Minister at Foothills UU in Fort Collins.
Rev. Gretchen reflects on the question of sacrifice and the power of choosing to give something up so that we don’t have to give up everything.
We follow this homily with the reflective practice of “Lectio Divina”, meditating on a “divine reading” that allows a selected sacred text to “read” us. As our UU scripture, we will use the Rev. Elizabeth Nguyen’s prayer, “What We Must Do.”

Looking Forward in our Worship
In this time of pandemic, TRUU’s Worship Committee has made a commitment to continue regular Sunday worship, and to pay particular attention to reaching out to provide comfort and connection to our TRUU congregation. To those ends, we are planning services using the sermons and homilies of our previous ministers, leading voices in our denomination, and fellowship services that modeled on the Small Group Ministry design created by the Unitarian Universalist Association. This is the first of those services.
Also known in UU circles as “covenant groups” and “chalice circles,” our popular and participatory fellowship services allow you to reflect on and discuss significant life topics. Fellowship circles are great places to get to know other people and to get to know yourself. Over time, participants build deep connections with one another, with the congregation and with the sacred.
At present, our celebrants conduct socially-distanced services at Third Street Center in Carbondale, and we livestream our services for all via Facebook and Zoom.
Videos of minister-led services will also be posted here on our website, on the Sermon Archive page.
