September Worship Theme:  Worth and Dignity


Our first principle affirms “the inherent worth and dignity of every person.” This principal affirms the amazing reality that we call life. To be alive and to savor existence on this planet is the most incredible thing that we will ever experience. This principle also reflects the hopes that we have for the unfolding of the incredible potential of each person, as well as our collective aspiration for the good life in which everybody can participate and share.

"Entertaining Angels: When We See God”

Rev. Bec Cranford

Service Leader:  Lynda Doll

Tech Team: Robert Kahn, Melinda Oliver and Stacia Wager


“Have you ever wondered about Jesus’s commandments to love God and neighbor? What about pray for your enemies? What about the Jewish prophet Micah’s understanding of what God requires? What if the most important part of spirituality is truly about loving others? BEC will use Jewish and Christian scripture, metaphor, and myth to share about dignity and worth, as well as talk about homelessness and intersectional issues in Atlanta.” 


Rev. Bec Cranford is an ordained minister in Session with the Progressive Baptist Alliance and is seeking dual alignment with the United Church of Christ.  Bec describes herself as a bapticostal misfit floating in the mainline. She works fulltime for Gateway Center, a homeless service provider in Atlanta. Previously, she was Director of Community for the Wild Goose Festival.  She has taught at Candler School of Theology. BEC has served nonprofits, para church organizations, and justice groups for over 15 years. She also works towards Just-Action in Ecumenical and Interfaith settings. She likes her family, her dog, and getting messy with acrylics.

“Ingathering Celebration: Water Communion”

Rev. Charlotte Arsenault

Service Leader: Jane Threlkeld

Tech Team:  Robin Kottman, Gayle Gannaway, and Lori Wilson



Our annual Water Communion is upon us once again as we celebrate the beginning of another church year and the many theological paths we take to Unitarian Universalism. This year, as we continue to practice social distancing, Rev. Charlotte will be on the porch at church on Saturday, Sept 5th from 10am-12pm and again on Thursday, Sept 10th from 3pm-5pm so that you may bring your water to pour into our common bowl. We will film your answers to the questions “From where does this water come and what makes it special to you?” Your pouring and words will be shared during the worship service on Sunday.

“Starting Over 

Rev. Marti Keller, Mountain Light Unitarian Universalist Church

Service Leader:  Robin Kottman

Tech Team:  Mountain Light Tech Team


During these High Holy Days in Judaism,  as human beings in progress, we will look at the challenges and joys of this particular year and time of accountability, renewal, and  charity in Jewish religious tradition.  


This week our congregation will join Mountain Light UU Church via Zoom for their Sunday service.  Mountain Light Unitarian Universalist Church, located in Ellijay, GA, celebrated their 20th anniversary in Fall 2019.  GMUUC provided moral, emotional, and financial help when they started their journey toward “church-hood.” Mountain Light does not have a professional minister but rather uses guest speakers in their pulpit. 


 Rev. Keller, a self-described Jewnitarian, has just completed a month of intensive study during Elul, the time of  personal preparation for the Jewish high holy days. She co-edited "Jewish Voices in Unitarian Universalism", is past president and present board member of Unitarian Universalists for Jewish Awareness, and past member of the executive committee of the Society for Humanistic Judaism.

“Freedom and Responsibility in the Pulpit”

Rev. Charlotte Arsenault 

Service Leader: Robin Kottman

Tech Team:  Melinda Oliver, Robert Kahn, and Lori Wilson


Freedom of the pulpit is a cherished part of Unitarian Universalist tradition. What does this freedom entail, how has it been embraced, what is the potential for abuse and what is the responsibility it requires? This is, ironically, an auction sermon.
