Meditation @ UCWC Meditation Room
Jul 28 @ 9:00 am – 9:30 am

Every Sunday morning a small group gathers for meditation. Sometimes it’s in silence, sometimes it’s with recorded music or chants, and sometimes it’s a combination. It’s always, however, a time for quietly exploring our inner selves and breathing—just breathing.

If you’ve never meditated before, don’t feel intimidated. We can help you with a brief introduction to the practice and some tips. If you’ve meditated but only do it sporadically, that’s fine. This is just an opportunity, open to everyone, to come and breathe and let go and set aside one half-hour each week to devote to quiet.

Swami Nirmalananda Saraswati.

Experience deep meditation made easily accessible by one who has devoted her life to spirituality. Even if you are new to meditation, Swami Nirmalananda, a monk in the Saraswati order, makes it easy for you. Allow Swamiji to introduce you to the truth found in the ancient yogic teachings, as she guides you to the knowing and the experience of your own Divine Essence. This sanctity is why every life is precious, and worthy of respect.

As a Saraswati monk, Swamiji wears the traditional orange, and has openly dedicated her whole life to serving others. She shares her incredible knowledge with students worldwide. Locally, she teaches meditation at the Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center. Swamiji makes the ancient yogic teachings, the highest teachings, accessible to everyone, guiding them to the knowledge and experience of their own Divine Essence. She teaches in a personal and life-embracing way, through her humor as well as her caring presence. Her programs are wonderfully deep, supportive and life changing.

1st Sunday Food Collection @ UCWC
Aug 4 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am

Our monthly collection for the West Chester Food Cupboard is the first Sunday each month. Look for the white collection baskets in the lobby. In addition to non-perishable foods, personal care items and household items are welcome — just be sure that items have not passed their expiration date.

Another important way to support The Food Cupboard is to put a check in the collection basket. This gives the Food Cupboard the flexibility to purchase items in short supply at the moment and to take advantage of sales. Make your check payable to “UCWC” and write “WC Food Cupboard” in the memo.

The West Chester Food Cupboard is a 100% volunteer organization, so you know that 100% of your contribution will go to fighting food insecurity. The Food Cupboard helps people right here, right now, because, “No one should go hungry.”

Sunday Service: Unalienable @ UCWC

Sunday Service: Unalienable @ UCWC | West Chester | Pennsylvania | United States

Michael Werner.

Are the moral imperatives guiding society objective or subjective? The Preamble to the Declaration of Independence says that we are endowed with certain unalienable rights, including a right to life. The King James Version of the Sixth Commandment says “Thou shalt not kill.” In our UU Principles we covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Do we apply these moral imperatives consistently when we consider waging war, physician-assisted suicide, the death penalty, and abortion rights? In this service, Michael will share his quest for an objective ethical response to the taking of human life.
