Third Sunday of the month - 9:00 to 10:00 Mindfulness and Quaker Quiet Time

What started as Mindfulness Sitting has evolved into into Mindfulness and Quaker Quiet Time because almost half or the group have Quaker backgrounds. The Mindfulness and Quaker Quiet time group is now a uniquely UCU spiritual group as we have combined the two tradition in our shared appreciation for sitting in quiet and stillness.

Anyone who want to experience shared silence is invited to sit with us the third Sunday of the month.

Fourth Sunday of the Month - 9:15 to 10:15

Class this year, led by Bob Worner, will continue with a study of the New Testament, using John Shelby Spong's book Biblical Literalism: A Gentile Heresy. After an extensive introduction, the book deals primarily with the Gospel of Matthew, but as a book, it is written to be read in the synagogue and corresponding to the Jewish liturgy. We will work on the Preface,and Part One, through page 58 in September.


Music is very important to us here at the Unitarian Chruch of Underwood. Each week there are different musicians playing a variety of instruments and a variety of music. We listen to or have listened to a trombone, Hurdy Gurdey, flute, violin, harp, piano, guitar, and much more. We hear blues, pop, numbers from musicals, gospel,and a grand waltz on occasion. We are very fortunate that we have the caliber of fine muscians come to play at the church for Sunday Service. They play the "special music" which consists of the prelude, offering, and postlude.

We have two great pianists at church who take turns at playing everyweek. Susan Groff is a talented musician. She origianlly played by ear and had to learn how to read music. She makes the piano come alive. Mary Worner is our other regular pianist. She is currently studying with Rebecca Davis. Mary seems to enjoy classical music and often brings the room to absolute silence with her playing.

We occasionally have a musician or musicians come to do a musical program for the whole service. Patty Kakac, Rebecca Davis, Anthony Miltich, Joe DiMasi, and the MState Voice Ensemble are just a few of the talented musicians to perform at the church.

Rev. Stefan Jonassen

Reverend Stefan Jonasson is a Unitarian Universalist minister from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and a long-time friend of the Unitarian Church of Underwood. We are fortunate to have him speak during Sunday Service at UCU about once a year. He will be speaking during Sunday Service on May 7, 2017.

We come together this morning to remind one another to rest for a moment on the forming edge of our lives, to resist the headlong tumble into the next moment, until we claim for ourselves awareness and gratitude, taking the time to look into one another's faces and see there communion: the reflection of our own eyes.

This house of laughter and silence, memory and hope, is hallowed by our presence together.
