Upcoming Services


Sunday February 25, 2017 


February 25: "Fish on Fridays and other pursuits of a spiritual life", a presentation by Rev. Tommy Brown. When we look outside of our UU bubble we might realize that it is the Christian season of Lent. This 40 day season of spiritual reflection and repentance before Easter. Among the common practices of faithful Catholics and others is to practice a weekly fast by not consuming flesh (other than fish) on Fridays. Personally I love fish and am glad that it is so readily available during Lent. Is spiritual practice really so easy? On this Sunday I will explore various paths and practices which persons pursue to follow, deepen, or discern a spiritual life.

March 4: Tiffany Christian brings us "Circles of Impact". Most of us strive to be remembered or to be influential. However, achieving these goals usually requires social status, extreme skill or talent or a serendipitous situation. Furthermore, they don't necessarily produce goodwill or social change. What if we all strived to have an impact, a positive impact? Any of us can do that regardless of age, status, race, skill or disposition. Lets talk about the many circles of impact we find along the Journey.
