We create loving community through worship and service to others.
Live Oak is a progressive spiritual community in the heart of Alameda. We walk diverse paths to find meaning and purpose, but are united by our belief in the worth and dignity of all, and the obligation to express our faith through acts of justice and compassion. Join us as we create a diverse, spirit-growing, justice-seeking community. We meet Sunday afternoons at 4:00 p.m. http://www.uuliveoak.org
Live Oak welcomes everybody. Everybody means - whatever you look like, however you speak, whoever you love, however you dress, whoever you live with, rich, poor, tall, short, dark, light - in all the myriad confusing ways we are human, we welcome YOU.
To be human is to work -- at something. Work comes in many forms -- paid, unpaid, visible, invisible, inner, outer, formal, informal. Work can delight, frustrate, reward, humiliate, exhilarate, exhaust, and so much more. This Labor Day weekend, we'll explore how our work binds us to each other and our planet.
We welcome back Rev. Sue Magidson who has preached at Live Oak UU several times in the past. Rev. Sue is a community minister affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley (UUCB). She serves as the spiritual care coordinator and hospital chaplain at San Leandro Hospital. Her essays are published in Skinner House books Jewish Voices in Unitarian Universalism and Faithful Practices: Everyday Ways to Feed Your Spirit, as well in Quest, the monthly publication of the Church of the Larger Fellowship.
