Sunday, November 4, 2018: "GOT FREE WILL? How Does Human Pedigree Influence Human Fulfillment?"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan

Worship Associate:  Steven Benton

Each of us has a genealogy or ancestral heritage.  How do they influence who we each "turn out to be?"

Sunday, October 28, 2018: "How Animals Bless Us - In Our Families, In the Wild, or On the Farm!"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Susan Burnore

Worship Associate:  Steven Benton

 

Your well-behaved pets are welcome at this annual service to celebrate animals in our lives.  And costumes are welcome on people and pets to celebrate Halloween!  

Patti Hanks will reflect on what she's learned from her puppy, and Susan Burnore and Steve Benton add thoughts on wild animals and farm animals.

Since we will have kids of all ages and pets of all kinds in the entire time, we'll aim for a shorter service.  We will not share Joys and Concerns during the service, so if you have a bit of news that the congregation needs to know about, please contact Rev. Jack or Susan Burnore.

Sunday, October 21, 2018: "CAN YOU GET OUTSIDE THE BOX OF YOUR MIND: Influencing Your Culture's Influence on Your Soul and Spirit"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan

Worship Associate:  Sarah Craig

Dr. Frankenstein's man could not get outside the box of his mind, especially because of the outposts others had in it.  Did Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin Shelley treat our gothic world to any transcendental hope?  What about you this trick-sated Halloween election season?

Sunday, October 14, 2018: "AMERICAN CIVILIZATION: DO YOU THINK THAT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA? The Effect of American Culture on Your Spiritual Potential"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan

Worship Associate:  Susan Burnore

The times they are a'changin'.  Just look at the clock - no, the digital one ticking off milliseconds faster than sand through an egg-timing hour glass.  What is calling the shots?  Whose side is it on?  Is there a cost for not knowing?

What is the effect of American culture on your spiritual potential?

Sunday, October 7, 2018: "ARE THE TAOISTS RIGHT - Your Culture is Your Enemy?"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan

Worship Associate: Sarah Craig

 

What is our culture, or yours?  Where did it come from and where is it trending?  How has it influenced who you are or can be - and will it continue all life long - and what does it matter?  Do all cultures have the same influence?  Is the Taoist idea valid, that cultural accretions constrict and corrode the precious natural you?
