Greetings!Rev. Jeremy D. Nickel  

 

Hooray, it is the week I wait for all year long! No, not because it is the last week before my summer vacation, but because this Sunday is Baseball Sunday!

 

If you have not been a part of this tradition before, you are in for a treat as we indulge in a unique double-header: First we will share a fun and meaningful service in Cole Hall Stadium, celebrating our national pastime,  including baseball themed hymns and a sermon about the spirituality of the Knuckleball.  And then after the service, those of us with tickets (and as of this writing there are still a few available, more info below) will go see the Oakland A's take on the visiting Minnesota Twins. We have seen some great games over the years and I am sure we will again this year too.

 

So come join me and your Mission Peak UU family for a great day of baseball!

This Sunday's Service -  July 19, 2015

Baseball Sunday  

  

These days baseball is dominated by flamethrowers who can pitch around 100 mph with incredible control. But a few pitchers remain true to an ancient and mysterious pitching strategy completely at odds with the modern power and control approach. This moundsman instead relies on a pitch so beguiling even they do not know where it will go, and so slow a child could hit it if they did know where it would end up. Come learn about the mystery and spirituality of the knuckleball as we once again transform our worship space into Cole Hall Stadium and our service into a day at the ballpark.

 

And after the service join us for a trip to see the Oakland A's play the Minnesota Twins - tickets are still available, more info below!
   
Leading the service will be Rev. Jeremy D. Nickel and Worship Associate DeAnna Alm.  Music will be provided by Eric Niessner.

  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part

We invite you to join us and add your commitment to ours. Mission Peak is a living and changing congregation, responsive to the spiritual needs of its members.
