During August there will be informal themed services at 10:00am in the Common Room.
August 2: Josh Leach, incoming FP student minister, will preach: "Disagreeing with People." Occasionally we disagree with others, and often it's no big deal. But what about those times when a difference of opinion starts to threaten a whole friendship? This is a sermon about the times in our lives when we care about someone but just can't see eye to eye.
August 9: Mark Bailey will begin where his balancing sermon left off and delve more broadly into Sufi and Rumi and Jay Griffiths and time.
August 16: Liz Connors will lead a service focusing on Buddhist practice and bringing it into daily life, and will also share thoughts on poetry and spirituality.
August 23: Ellery Schempp, humanist champion of the First Amendment, will speak about his life and his many accomplishments as an activist for separation of church and state in public schools. One of his talks can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIfzFvRnCeU
August 30: Nan Jeffreys, a longtime UU and one of our newer parishioners, invites people to bring a symbol of something significant that happened for them over the summer, come open to sharing and a spirit of curiosity.
