"Lost Connections"

Mental illness is one of my favorite topics because it's my mission to address the stigma associated with it throughout Western history.  The 2018 book, "Lost Connections" by Johann Hari is a compelling look at the true causes of depression and what we've been told to do about it by mainstream medicine.  Turns out, we're not so crazy after all!  The sky-rocketing incidence of depression and anxiety in our society has much more to do with how we live and our dearth of connections to that which nourishes us as human beings.

The Song in Our Hearts

Our guest minister, Rev. Jason Shelton, will lead us in an exploration of the ways in which music speak to our deepest loves and longings, and how it helps us live the promise of our faith. UU choral singers from all over LA will join us as part of a weekend workshop with Rev. Shelton, who is one of our best-known contemporary composers and worship leaders.
The Rev. Jason Shelton served as Associate Minister for Music at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashville from 1998-2017, and is now pursuing a freelance UU music ministry in the broader world. In addition to his work as a composer, he is an active choral conductor and worship leader, and an advocate for using music as a means of creating community in multi-faith, multi-cultural environments. Formerly a Franciscan brother, Jason received an MDiv from Vanderbilt Divinity School in 2003 and was ordained to the Unitarian Universalist ministry in 2004.

75 and Going Strong!

What will the next 75 years look like at the UU Church of Studio City, and what does our time, treasure, and talent have to do with it?  The children are scheduled to sing for us as we experience the passion of liberal faith, and the inspiration to make sure we celebrate 150 years in 2093!  Our bold Annual Fund Drive goal is $150,000, to fund all that we do and build a bedrock foundation for generations of UUs to come.

Homelessness in LA County

Homelessness went up by 20% in LA County in 2017 alone.  We cannot drive or travel anywhere without seeing quite a number of homeless wandering the streets beleaguered, with suitcases in tow.  What can we do about it?
