Sunday August 28th - 9:15a 

Rise by Rev. Dawn Riley-Duval and Rev. Amanda Henderson

When Jesus encounters the widow in Nain he has more than compassion on his agenda. Jesus calls on the boy and the community to rise and break the vicious cycles of death that decimate our communities. As people of faith we are called to interrupt cycles of death and restore life and healing so that all may thrive.

This Week

Are you curious about what’s happening with the building renovation and capital campaign? Here’s your chance to find out! The Executive Building Team will host a forum on Sunday, August 28 after the service (approx. 11:00am) where we will hear updates from the Building Renovation Team on the building project, and from the Capital Finance Team on the capital campaign. There will also be ample time to ask any questions you have about the project.

Have you ever wondered, “How can I help out First Unitarian in just TWO MINUTES!?”  A-ha!  The answer is… Return your pledge form!  If you’re like me, the intense heat has forced you on vacation or into the mountains.  I confess – I haven’t been to church in a while.  But marvelous things continue to occur here (follow 1st Unitarian on Facebook or read 1st Announce to see).  Even if you are not here, your pledge is still needed.  Hats off to all who’ve returned their pledge forms!

Colorado Care Ballot Iniative 69 will have a representative here at First Unitarian Wednesday August 31 7p. Mr. Passoth will share some details about the legislation and will be available to address your concern and answer your questions. Please visit their website and Facebook page

Insight is the Whole Souul Living Theme for July

An Open Letter About Brock Turner

This post is not officially from First Unitarian Society of Denver, just a personal statement by Senior Minister, Rev. Mike Morran. 


The 4th Principle of Unitarian Universalism is: “A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” Certainly there is a category of empirical truth to the physical world. Just as certainly there is a category of more subjective truth that will vary from person to person. Still, in the Unitarian Universalist tradition, we take the question of religious truth very seriously. It was the search for truth and a more authentic religious experience that led us to break away from more traditional Christianity.
