Sunday, September 1, 2019: "The Intersection of Poetry and Religion"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Paul Burnore
Worship Associate: Paul Craig

Within poetry, words are more than just words, which is why religions use poetry to explain and celebrate their beliefs when simple prose is not enough. Poetry can reach deeper inside us, and across generations and geographies and gender. Can poetry be relevant in our current world of texts, tweets, and phone mail messages? And how does it fit into Unitarian Universalism?

Sunday, August 25, 2019: "DIFFERENT FROM YOU: On the Spiritual Gift of Telling Difference from Division"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan
Worship Associate: Sarah Craig

The phrases "All Things Considered"  and "Have It Your Way" both offer what I think is wise counsel.  But what happens when people differ?  Often it divides.  How can you have it your way and still consider all the differences?  And why bother in this blog-eat-blog world?

Sunday, August 18, 2019: "When Bad Things Happen to Good People"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Susan Burnore
Worship Associate: Bill Motter

It's a classic conundrum for theists and atheists alike - why do bad things happen to good people? Susan Burnore's remarks for this Sunday will be based on Rabbi Harold Kushner's book of the same title, a classic that offers clear thinking and consolation.  Elisabeth Kubler-Ross said the book is "a moving and humane approach to understanding life's windstorms."
