Sunday Service at 10:30 A.M.
July 19th - Peter Italia reading "Playing with Indians":This service will be a reading of Edward Frost's sermon "Playing with Indians: Rev. Frost recalls an incident from his chicdhood when he took a stand for what he felt was right, though it meant defiance of his father's wishes. In the end he asks that each of us ask ourselves: "When was the first time I realized that I could make a difference?".
July 26th - Theresa Krieger: Laughing Matters" How many UU's does it take to...? A look into the importance of humor in our faith and in our practice.
August 2nd - Herb Ogden: Lessons from a 50th Prep School Reunion: Explore the sometimes strange relationship of the Unitarian Universalist Association's First Principle 9The inherent worth and dignity of every person) and Second Principle (Justice, equity and compassion in human reletions) to a joyous reunion of people, many of whom didn't like each other years ago.]
August 9th - Melanie Nixon: "Food Justice": Our dominant food system is morally wrong. From production to consumption of the food chain exploits growers, laborers, people of color, low income communities, animals, and the environment. The Food Justice movement has risen from social and environmental movements to not only challenge, but to dismantle this system. It aims to rebuild on a foundation of community, equity, justice and sustainability. Together we can make it right.
August 16th: Kevin Kiefaber - "Creativity and Cooperative Games": To make the most of yet another year without a minister, we'll want to learn to work well together and be creative. With that in mind, this service will be activity based, fun, and will encourage participation, cooperation and thinking outside the box. All activity levels accommodated and location to be determined.
August 23rd: Bruce McNallie: "Please Write Me" Sending a handwritten letter connects us more and meaningfully to others that email.
August 30th: Nancy Weis - "Doing Things the Slow Way" Our society puts a lot of value on maximizing speed and efficiency in all things. People are judged on their ability to make decisions and take action rapidly: the quickest, shortest route is the best and great amounts of capital are invested in ways to improve old systems by speeding them up. But what do we miss in our hurry to speed towards the END?
September 6th: No Srevice (Labor Day is the 7th.)
