“The Joy of Stepping on Eggshells”

Rev. Erin Gingrich, Guest Minister; Melinda Lee, Worship Associate

Rev. Erin returns to FUUSB to share a timely fable from Rabbi Ed Friedman about relationships, nerves, and insensitivity training. Can that be true, insensitivity training? Yes! Sometimes we are soooo very nice to others that we make ourselves sick, and tired, and so small and miserable that perhaps, we might even become desperate enough to allow ourselves to change. Come explore what the morale of insensitivity training could mean for you.

Rev. Erin Gingrich is a Unitarian Universalist minister and a somatic coach. She was first introduced to Unitarian Universalism in the early 2000’s at the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Burlington by Rev. Gary Kowalski and Rev. Roddy O’Neal Cleary. Ordained in 2010, Rev. Erin served two UU congregations, one in Reston, VA, and the other in Des Moines, IA. This past spring Erin started her own somatic and spiritual coaching practice as her embodiment of our shared UU values. She believes every person deserves to feel whole, alive, and at home in their skin, and that whatever keeps us from knowing our wholeness is a cry for social change and healing. She supports people who struggle to be at home in their skin to safely inhabit their birth right of wholeness and aliveness again.

Join us for Sunday morning worship at 10 a.m., which will be held outdoors at the First UU Society. The service will also be live-streamed. Find the livestream link and order of service on the Live-Streamed Worship page, or go to our YouTube channel.

There will be chairs, but please bring a portable chair if you can. Summer Garden Childcare will be available in the Memorial Garden. Following the service, all are welcome to Outdoor Coffee Hour.

While at the Meeting House, anyone is welcome to wear a mask. In the spirit of caring for each other, please stay home if you have any cold or flu symptoms. Thank you.


In the event of inclement weather, Sunday services, childcare, and coffee hour will move indoors.
