We are a liberal religious congregation and a dynamic, caring community. We value the inherent worth and dignity of each person, regardless of who you are or whom you love, your family or personal circumstances, or the path your faith calls you to walk.

Unitarian Universalism is an open-minded religion which encourages people to seek their own spiritual path. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. At GNUUC, you can nurture your spirit and put your faith into action to create a just and compassionate world.

Lauren Rigsby — Sunday, March 8

 “Rejuvenating Waters ”   

Where do you find deep nourishment in your life? Do you have a spiritual practice or ritual that offers stability and creativity to your days and nights? Join Lauren in exploring some ancient ways of tapping into deep spiritual waters. Yoga, praying the divine hours, mantras, prayer beads, and other spiritual practices center us, shape us, and have the potential to move beyond the self.

Lauren Rigsby is a Chaplain at Alive Hospice through a Clinical Pastoral Education yearlong residency here in Nashville. She recently graduated from Vanderbilt Divinity School with a Master of Divinity, and is grateful to have worked at GNUUC throughout her time in graduate school.                                               Service Coordinator:  Jesse Spencer-Smith


Rev. Rachel Lonberg — Sunday, March 15

 “Sing a Song of Sixpence”

How is GNUUC like the black bird-filled pie from the nursery rhyme? It is alive, unexpected, a little raucous, and poised for something dramatic. As our pledge drive kicks off, Rev. Rachel will explore the great things in store for the congregation – and continued generosity required of all of us to roll out the red carpet for the new minister, new members, new joy with one another, and new ways to make our values real in the world.          

                                                                                                  Service Coordinator:  Jack Yeager
