THE FOREWORD - NOVEMBER 2014
(Part One: Spiritual --- listing Sunday worship activities, religious education for all ages & Notes from the Minister, or visit our entire November newsletter)
Upcoming Sundays: Services at 10:30 am
November 2 - Today’s service will be led by Marlana Rice. Her sermon topic is Plastic Future! Gramma, Have We Arrived Yet? Let’s put on those ruby slippers of technology and look behind the veil to see where we have been, where we are, and how we might best adapt to the lions, and tigers, and bears….oh my!
November 9 - Unity and Diversity in the 21st Century Rev. Mark Kiyimba, the 38-year-old founder and senior minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Uganda will be in the pulpit for this service. He and his congregation of 150 souls with very large hearts run a school for 650 children who have lost parents due to HIV and AIDS, and an orphanage for 22 children infected with the virus. He and the members of his Kampala congregation are outlaws in Uganda for welcoming LGBT people. They meet illegally. Join us to hear about Rev. Mark’s important work and his unifying message.
November 16 - Compassionate Communication Rev. Art Severance. Buddha felt that how we talk to one another was so important he made it one of the 8 Fold Path “Right Speech.” And of course, one of the 10 Commandments says do not lie. How we talk to each other and with each other is a more practical, every day part of religion and is more about behavior and love.
November 23 - Over the River and Through the Woods for Thanksgiving. This is an inter-generational service.
November 30 - TBA
