Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Outer Banks

To All Members and Friends of UUCOB:
We, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Outer Banks, extend a warm welcome
to you. We invite you to join us in the celebration of life and the search for its meaning. Our members form a diverse group with various religious backgrounds.

  • Have you felt a need for a spiritual community that values your whole life, welcoming you as you are and recognizing that every life has extraordinary possibilities?
  • Have you ever wished for a religious community that finds inspiration in all the world’s religious traditions, in nature’s beauty, in poetry, stories, music, and art, and in the discoveries of science?
  • Have you wondered if faith and love could guide spiritual and religious people to work for equity and justice, for peace and freedom, for equal rights for all people in this world, in this lifetime?
  • Have you wanted to be part of a community of love who celebrate each other’s joys, who comfort and support each other in times of trouble, who strengthen and encourage each other for the work of making a better world, and who welcome and celebrate each other’s quest for truth and meaning?

For over 30 years the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Outer Banks has been building just such a spiritual community.  We would love to share it with you.  We hope you’ll enjoy exploring this website and our Facebook page, but most of all we would be glad to welcome you to a Sunday service at our Meetinghouse on Kitty Hawk Road.  Come as you are!

SUNDAY SERVICE – November 18, 10:30 AM
Rev David Morris “The Courage of Convictions”
Elections matter, but they are not the deciding factor in the future of a nation. We, the people, are.

Rev. David’s Sunday Salon
  Join Rev. David and others after this Sunday’s service for an open-topic, facilitated conversation.  Feel free to bring refreshments to share.

REV. DAVID’S QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
Forever Oneness,
who sings to us in silence,
who teaches us through each other.
Guide my steps with strength and wisdom.
May I see the lessons as I walk,
honor the Purpose of all things.
Help me touch with respect,
always speak from behind my eyes.
Let me observe, not judge.
May I cause no harm,
and leave music and beauty after my visit.
When I return to forever
may the circle be closed
and the spiral be broader.

Do you begin your day with an intention, an aspiration, a blessing? How might such a practice affect your days?

NOTES from REV. DAVID:
