Our November theme is Feeling

November 5, 2017

Dealing with Feeling

10:30am Service:                                                             Speaker: Lynn Madsen

                                                                                               Celebrant: Steve Clem

Emotions are an essential part of our humanity. They tell us what is going on in our world and in ourselves, help us connect with each other and move us toward necessary action. The dominant voices in our culture have encouraged and valued reason over emotion for 6 centuries. We are often left distrusting or even despising our emotions and struggling to cope with intense emotional experiences. We will explore what emotion is and does and how to develop a different relationship with our own feelings.

After the Oobleck – Annual Forgiveness Ritual

                                                                                           Celebrant: Deb Miller

Forgiveness can be a sticky topic, especially when we refuse to grant forgiveness to ourselves or others. Let us gather this morning to hear a story about how messy and sticky it can get. Then, we will have our annual forgiveness ritual to help us leave that stickiness behind.

Choosing Covenant: On Being Countercultural Heretics

Share the Plate: Planned Parenthood

10:30am  Service                                                                      Speaker: Rev. Tandi Rogers

                                                                                                  Celebrant: Christina Davitt

As Unitarian Universalists we are bound together by a living covenant — a holy agreement with the ancestors who came before, with those we currently journey with, and with those yet to come— a holy agreement with the very Spirit of Life itself to grow our souls and help heal the world. How countercultural and powerful! What an antidote for a hurting world riddled with disconnecting consumerism and objectification! Come hear the unfolding story to which you belong.

Inner Demons

10:30am Service                                                                   Rev. Laura Shennum

                                                                                              Celebrant: Pam Toevs

Sometimes we can be our own biggest critic. We encourage those voices in our heads and they convince us of our lack of self worth. How do we find our own angels to help us and what do they look like?
