What to do when you visit
If you’re willing, stick on a name tag from the table near the door so we can greet you by name, but we promise not to make visitors uncomfortable by making them stand up during the service and introduce themselves. (We’d be thrilled, though, if you wanted to do that!)
On the table with the nametags, feel free to pick up the brochure Visitor’s Guide to the Tree House, which will give you a thumbnail view of our community. You might also be interested in the booklet you’ll find there, What It Means to be a Seeker. This is a printed copy of a sermon from our minister in 2012 that one member felt was such an articulate expression what most of us are trying to do spiritually that he had it printed and keeps a supply of the booklet available for visitors and members. You will also find on the table an information card we invite you to fill out with a little information about you, if you’re comfortable sharing it. We might give you a call or drop you an email later to find out what you thought about your visit, but we promise not to harass you or to beg money from you.
We hope that what you find on our website makes you want to get to know us a little better. If so, join us some Sunday! We gather at 10:30, though you’ll find people milling around before that and someone is sure to welcome you. The main entrance is off the parking lot at the back of the building at the parking lot, although on nice days the McClure Street doors are probably open, too.
Tree Talk really is one of the best things we do at TLCUU. Many of us have been part of religious traditions that have discouraged this kind of inquiry. Truth came from a holy book, from a long tradition, or from the pulpit, not from the pews. Well, we might not have pews at TLCUU, but we have each other, and we are committed to learning from each other. We don’t have to agree on everything, but merely to respect each other’s views and to help each other along our paths when we can. That’s what Tree Talk is all about!
