What is FaithRocket?
FaithRocket is a theme-based ministry resource available to UU congregations. It has been developed by the Church of the Larger Fellowship (the UUA’s largest congregation which functions as an online fellowship composed mostly of persons who are not within driving distance of a traditional UU congregation) and Launchpad (a multi-site and church-planting ministry promoting innovative ways to create, grow, and develop new UU congregations).
FaithRocket provides congregations with a wide range of materials to take ministry beyond the traditional Sunday morning service. While it does include worship materials based on a monthly theme, it also includes resources for small groups, for religious education, and for social media. Social media resources include quote memes, podcasts and YouTube videos, and thoughtful essays by notable UUs.
For those of our members and friends who use Facebook, watch for FaithRocket materials on High Street Church’s group page. If you’re not yet a member on our group page, got to https://bit.ly/2KnLHm3 to request to be added as a member.
The FaithRocket theme for January is “THE UNEXPECTED.”

A FaithRocket Quote for Saturday:
by Lynn Ungar, Minister for Lifespan Learning, Church of the Larger Fellowship
The call comes on a stunningly
ordinary telephone: the doctor
telling you the test is positive,
the agency saying that you have a child,
the lover who left so long ago
wanting to make amends.
Suddenly the earth tilts.
The path you thought to follow to the lake
heads sharply up the mountains.
The trail through the dense woods
comes around the bend into an open meadow.
Of course you weren’t prepared.
Who knows how to dress
for such a journey? Listen.
Inside your ear there is a high,
insistent ringing. What do you
suppose might happen
if you should answer?
