Sunday Services:

11:00 AM


•5/31

Are We Living in a Police State?
Pat Jobe (Walter Ezell)

Suggested by one of our recent presidents, Richard Kelly, this service will look at government snooping, mass incarceration, Michelle Alexander's book, "The New Jim Crow," and our new cultural norm of police violence followed by mass protest. Tough sledding, but come and help us visualize a better world.

•6/07

Long Strange Trip and Ingathering
Pat Jobe/ John Seitz/Lia Schofield (Lisa Lipscomb)

Unitarianism and Universalism were separate for the first roughly 160 years of American history. The 1960 merger set us on a path of, among other things, exploring the differences and looking at our diverse history. With a due tip of the hat to Jerry Garcia, we explore a few of the strange and beautiful stories from our long, strange trip.

Ingathering of new members: If you are a new member that has joined the Fellowship since the beginning of the year, there will be an "Ingathering" ceremony during the service on June 7th welcoming you into our community.
Invitations will be sent out during May and we hope you will be able to join us.
This ceremony will also include any members who joined between June and early December of 2014 and were not at the Ingathering of December 2014.
There will be a reception in the Fellowship Hall following the service.

•6/14

Feed My Sheep
Bucky Williams-Hooker (Pat Jobe)

Bucky Williams-Hooker is an ordained minister in the tradition of the Metropolitan Community Church. He has written an amazing book about surviving abuse, loving in same-sex long-term relationship. He comes to us to talk about a particularly meaningful passage from the Christian texts. Come and expect to be spiritually fed.

•6/21

Fathers Day: Law of Attraction
Pat Jobe (Dana Couillard)

Although the idea is controversial and sometimes mistaken for victim blaming, the law of attraction is the simple idea that our thoughts and emotions attract our destiny. The Book of Job in the Hebrew text warns, "The things I fear the most I have drawn into my life."

•6/28

Loneliness
Pat Jobe (John Seitz)

Today more people live alone than at any time in American History. Can we as a congregation soften the blow of loneliness?

•Membership
