Sunday, July 2, 2017: "REFLECTIONS ON LIBERTY, LOYALTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS: What Faith Can Make It Real?"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan

On this Independence Day Sunday, I think it is proper to study independence, though it's a very big topic. Narrowing it down, it seems to me that one key ingredient of freedom is having a mind and heart of your own in good relationship with all the minds and hearts of earthkind.  So this morning, this will be where we conclude our year-long Sunday Service theme on our Beliefs - our understandings of life, of how to live it, and of what authority we are loyal to.

The sources we explored included our own direct experience, the words and deeds of others, and the wisdom traditions of the world - religious, philosophical, mythic, and scientific.  The final source and resource we have is our own personal reflections, our own creative synthesis of all we've gleaned from life and learning.

May our reflections add a new dimension to the life and liberty we need to happily pursue happiness.

Sunday, June 25, 2017: "Celebrating the Rainbow, Soul Searching and More"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Sabine von Aulock

Join us in Gilmour Hall from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. for a pancake breakfast benefiting UU's Helping People's Friday Night Picnic for People in Need. We will then remain for coffee and conversation during our Cafe Rainbow service. UUSP became a "Welcoming Congregation" in 2012. While this community has a large heart, some of us are still unsure of their place at our 'table.' Listen to personal stories, share yours, and let's look at possible steps we can take to truly embrace our LGBTQ friends and family who cross our threshold.

Sunday, June 18, 2017: "WHAT WONDER WOMAN THINKS OF FATHERS' DAY: Pater, Pattern, & Pitter Patter Myths the Dad in You Should Know"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan

We all have myths in our heads - patterned stories about being boys (boys will), about being girls (girls should), about being dads (dads do), about being moms (moms are).   Celebration of Fathers' Day invites us to ask, according to what patterns does a person weave to shape a Dad?
