Sunday, December 2, 2018: "WHAT'S A PARENT TO DO? A Hanukkah Guide to Christmas"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan

Worship Associate: Susan Burnore

December, the season of awaiting new light that there might be new life, raises  the question of the influence of parenting.  What are the end purposes of parenting a human soul?  What are the means?  What influence do parents have?  Why do so many comic strips feature kids trying to figure out parents or parents trying to figure out kids?  What's to figure?  Perhaps Hanukkah can show the light to Christmas.

Sunday, November 18, 2018: "TRANSCENDING MYSTERY, TRANSFORMING PROPHECY: On Influencing Your Ancestral Influences"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan

Worship Associate:  Sherry Benton
 

Aren't you sometimes amazed that humankind still exists, given how slowly - and often perversely - we mature and learn?  We inherit the wind from so many who have blown themselves and others to kingdom come - winners of Darwin Awards for cleansing the gene pool - servitude to killer eagles and gobbling turkeys, making evolution wonder if good taste can ever be served.  Are there not ways to influence the windy current of your ancestral lineage so you may soar?

The Covenant of Congregations in the Unitarian Universalist Association calls us to draw upon our direct experiences of transcending  mystery and the transforming influences of prophetic women and men.  So many treasures and heroes among the mysteries and prophecies from our personal ancestral lineages - and also so many handicaps and handicappers.  Can what influences us from our ancestral past be influenced by us to serve our still greater visions?

Sunday, November 11, 2018: "BOO WHO? THE SPELL OF YOUR ANCESTORS ON YOUR SPIRIT"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan

Worship Associate:  Sarah Craig

Dreams and psychology tell us we all have ancestral ghosts in our basements who, with their moans of pain and pleasure, still influence our everyday ways.  Can we safely and/or usefully get to know them?  Perhaps it depends on what you mean by safe, and useful.
