The Verdugo HUUT! Presents: Once More Into the Breach!

Are we going to war again? Have we ever left? Our celebrated Hootenanny in the Hills draws performers and fans from the neighborhood and all over Los Angeles. This month's theme is Once More Into the Breach!—an evening of songs, readings, and related performance about war, which has proven fertile ground for all kinds of art (probably because of the blood). Whether you're for or agin' war, this month's HUUT will be filled as per usual with strong performances, good coffee, and fun surprises. Featuring Missy Lee, Andy McAllister, and Fogelfoot.

Sunday Service: Who's Your Daddy?
Guest Speaker: Marty Barrett


The role of the father is constantly evolving. What may have been true of our grandfathers might not be true now. In this congregation-led Father's Day service, we invite attendees to bring stories of our fathers, both traditional and not so much, and consider what unites them.

Sunday Service: The Song of Isaac
Guest Speaker: Marty Barrett


The late, great Canadian troubadour Leonard Cohen penned one of the world's most evocative protest ballads, "The Song of Isaac," that set a high bar for a country's decision to go to war. A scholar and poet, Cohen drew the tune from the old Coventry Carol, which in turn was written about the Biblical Slaughter of the Innocents. We see how Cohen mixed "Old" Testament themes with some from the Gospels to write a Vietnam-era protest song that still resonates--if we let it--today.

Sunday Service: Words for Joy
Guest Speaker: Mary Madill

We all know words can have an emotional impact.  Different languages have words (such as “verklempt”) for emotions that are not described specifically in English.  Let’s share words—English and more--that bring joy and love into our lives.

Autumn is here! 

 We are excited to celebrate the changing of the seasons and thinking about the way in which many cultures and religions celebrate the holidays.  Below is a beautiful UU poem about Autumn arriving and the excitement of change… we will be reading this poem and other beautiful literature to our children as we shift into the next season. Meanwhile in the RE program, we have been working on our “7 Principles Book” where the children are welcome to draw, write or think about what the principles mean to them. It has been exciting to hear their ideas and their questions about the UU faith.

I am working closely with the RE committee and Rev. Gordon on our curriculum here at UUCVH! More information to come soon! Wishing everyone a wonderful month filled with warm jackets, warm drinks and the warmth that this season brings!

 Warmly,

Elizabeth S. Brown

RE Coordinator
