Sunday Service at 10:30 A.M.

April 1st: Herb Ogden “The Uses of Resurrection” After exploring a few pre-Christian resurrection stories and the inconsistent stories in the New Testament, Herb will consider what each story is good for.

April 8th: Rev. Barbara Threet “On Evil” Is evil a force in and of itself? Perhaps it’s the absence of good, or love? Is it innate? Who is evil, and/or what acts are evil? And how does our first principle, which states that we “respect and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person”, deal with evil acts or the
people who do them?” This sermon topic was chosen by Kathy Harm,
who purchased that choice at the 2017 UUCR Auction.

April 15th: Kathy Harm “Taxes: Look on the Bright Side” As today is April 15th we’ll take a wide-ranging look at taxes: what they do for us, why we should care, what countries with highest taxation levels exhibit. The constraints
currently applicable to churches
and tax-exempt organizations will be detailed. The speaker will suggest how there can be a
spiritual element to paying taxes!

&b[April 22nd: Rev. Barbara Threet “Opening the Door, Welcoming the Sacred”] We’ll explore how we might actively welcome the Sacred into our lives, through a service of poetry, reflection, and song.

April 29th: Cathy Archer
“Spirituality of Theatre”
Theatre has roots as a religious experience. It re-emerged during the middle ages as a way to share the stories of the Bible with the uneducated masses. Theatre tells stories that
inspire people to change their lives or the world around them Cathy Archer will look at theatre as a spiritual practice/event.

May 6th: Class Members
“Examining Whiteness”
For the last several months, a group of
14 UUCR members plus a few others from the Rutland community have met monthly to
explore what it means to be white in deeply racist society. In this service, several of the participants will share some of what they’ve discovered about
themselves, and about what it means to be white in a way that is respectful, honest, and inclusive. [NOTE: this description will be updated as the class refines this service]
