July 15th: Cathy Archer “Theater of the Soul” Come prepared to exercise your inner actor or just watch as Cathy leads us in some reader’s theater.

July 22nd: On the Big Screen…
“Epigenetics, Stress, & Gender Identity”, presented by Karissa Sanbonmatsu

She is the daughter of summer attendees of our church and a distinguished scientist. She gives a scientific explanation of how to know you're in love.

July 29th: On the Big Screen…
“Calvin and Servetus”, presented by Ryan M. Reeves

We’ll watch this lecture by Ryan M. Reeves (Ph.D. Cambridge). Then we’ll discuss it. Michael Servetus was a proto-Unitarian executed in Geneva with the approval of prominent early Protestant John Calvin. Useful background for the lecture would be an encyclopedia entry on Servetus, since Dr. Reeves assumes a rudimentary knowledge of him. Reeves explains why Servetus risked death by going to Geneva and the reason for burning heretics in the 16th Century.

This will be a time for fellowship and fun as we tidy up our church and accomplish some neglected tasks. We have a list of projects that can easily be completed in an hour, plus PIZZA for all participants! Activities include making an inventory of old "stuff" so it can be properly dealt with, cleaning the new chairs, repairing the community room curtains, washing the plain windows, dusting, etc. This work party will take place during regular service hours beginning at 10:30 a.m.

August 12th: JP Cass
“Do the Ends Justify the Means?”

UUs have traditionally rejected ends justify the means ethics, from evangelism controversies of the early 19th century to debates over torture in the early 21st century. How do we recognize and challenge this type of thinking, especially in its new and subtler forms?

August 19th: Nancy Weis “What They Said”
Great quotations give us a lot to think about, and some of them guide our lives and imaginations. We will share some of our favorite quotations and what they mean to us. Bring your own favorite or choose from the many examples Nancy will provide.

August 26th: No Service

September 2nd: No Service

September 9th: Rev. Barbara Threet “Ingathering and Water Communion”
