The Unitarian Universalists of Geneva are a community of curious and compassionate thinkers and doers. We gather to explore and be reminded of what really matters in life through discourse with friends who respect our personal journey. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality but aligned our desire to make a difference for good. We recharge through not only discourse, but also through song and the lighting of a candle, experiencing awe and connection. We also challenge each other to live our values through social action initiatives.
We offer our children the opportunity to develop their personal moral structure and spiritual path through socially conscious activities and studies of world philosophies, traditions and religions.
Come, reconnect with your spiritual side on your own terms, and in the loving and mindful embrace of a vibrant community.

Title: "Don't Take Care, Take Risk"
Visiting UU Minister : Rev. Diane Rollert,
Minister of the Unitarian Church of Montreal, Canada and new UUA Ambassador to Europe
We can have some pretty inaccurate notions about what is dangerous and what is safe. When it comes to understanding risk, our emotions can either lead us to be too cautions or too foolish. But what if we told each other “take risk” instead of “take care”? This Sunday morning, we’ll explore the rational, emotional and spiritual side of boldly (but wisely!) taking more risks.
This will be a sermon interwoven with questions that those gathered can answer. It will provide some ideas about UUism, as well as thoughts about taking the risk to be in religious community, along with considering all the worries we seem to be facing these days in this crazy world of ours. I’ll also incorporate a meditation/prayer time.
In 2006, Rev. Diane Rollert became the 11th settled and first female minister of the Unitarian Church of Montreal since its founding in 1842. She completed her studies in parish ministry and Masters of Divinity at Harvard Divinity School in 2005, after careers in the online information industry and education.
Diane is originally from the US and has studied in Mexico and Spain, lived in Luxembourg, and has spent much time over the years with her husband’s family in northern Italy. She has a passion for languages and communication, having learned to speak French since she first arrived in Montreal. She also speaks Italian and can often resuscitate her Spanish. She has a great love for the UU communities of the Philippines, as well as a strong connection to the Gaspésie, where she visits each summer.
Youth Program: offered for children 4-12 years old. Please let us know if you are bringing your children so we can be prepared by the Friday before (email: email@example.com).
Social Hour: after the gathering we share potluck apéros and beverages of choice, so you are welcome to bring something to share. (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
