This Sunday & Notable at UUCDC

This Sunday March 25 - "Successful Failure"

As we wrap up our month-long examination of "Perseverance," this Sunday Rev. Peter and Worship Associate Josie Cressler will reflect on giving up and giving in. How do we know when it is time to let go, and what do we learn from not getting what we want? 

The plate collection at this service be be donated to the Media Food Bank, to help support the monthly food needs of several hundered Delco residents in need.

March 21 - Demand a Ban on Assault Weapons

Join others in the church, along with our friends from Delco United for Sensible Gun Policy and Heeding God’s Call, to engage on March 21, when we will occupy Senator Pat Toomey’s Philadelphia office and demand that he cosponsor an assault weapons ban. 

That is the action that I invite you to join if you are able, and I ask you to invite your friends to join you in this act of resistance. And if you’re not able to be there on March 21st, I can predict with absolute, horrific certainty, that there will be more vigils for more victims. There will be more protests. There will be more acts of resistance, because I have no doubt there will be more carnage and more killings in the weeks to come.

March 24 - "March for Our Lives" in Rose Tree Park

If you can't make it to Washington for the national "March for Our Lives" this Saturday, please support a "Sister March" and join Rev. Peter and many others who will be gathering at the big gazebo in Rose Tree Park at 11 am that same day. Additional information can be found by clicking here

Rev. Peter's Poem for March: Equipoise

It must be some kind of 
magic trick, with hidden 
wires and pulleys,
or maybe a confederate stands
behind the curtained valance.
How else could the sun, 
the moon, the earth hang 
in such perfect balance?

The earth dances through 
this empty space
like an ingénue, resisting 
the suitor sun’s embrace.
And, all the while, the moon 
is there to pull the seas 
with strength enough
to shift and mold her sister’s face.
Gravity drops at our feet
fruit from branches 
too tall to reach,
and holds us close enough 
to dance and kiss and meet,
while seasons last just 
long enough for birth and death, 
and birth again,
in endless cycle sweet.
Would that the magic trick, 
that sleight of hand,
be once revealed to me,
that I might learn to hold
my night and day,
my dark and light,
in such perfect equanimity.
