Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Paul Burnore

With a lunar eclipse this past week and a full solar eclipse on August 21, it’s a good time to reflect on human reactions to eclipses: from superstition to scientific facts, to humanism, and to medical science.

Sunday, July 16, 2017: "AN AUDACIOUS INQUIRY: COULD THE GOSPEL BE MADE BETTER?"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan

First, what really was the Gospel - the good news? 

Second, is there something missing from the Gospel as it is written that could redeem it from Midnight Clear laments like "beneath the angel strain have rolled two thousand years of wrong" - to redeem it from Yeatsian Second Coming prophecy like "Now I know that twenty centuries of stony sleep were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle, And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?"

Troubling stuff.  Wintry stuff.  Best to tackle this renovation now, in the summer, while the light is still good.  This, by the way, is what Unitarians and Universalists think about on vacation.  Come bring your ideas on what the Gospel is and how, if possible, to improve it.
