What have cultures' wisdom traditions - the religions and philosophies, the arts and sciences - said to you about the universal principles of human relationship?  Shall you trick or treat your friends?  Shall you trick or treat your foes?  Have these traditions influenced your spiritual potentials for surviving?  for thriving?  What shall you say back to them?

Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan
Worship Associate: Sarah Craig

Last Spring, one of the items offered during the Silent Auction fundraiser was the opportunity to choose the topic of one of the minister's sermons.  Tammy Boudreau made the winning bid.  Her topic:  Courage.  What is courage?  When and how does it arise in the human spirit?  Why do we have it?  Do we use it well?  Thank you, Tammy - I think  : )

Sunday, October 6, 2019: "THE EXPERIENCE OF WORTH AND DIGNITY: Are They Inherent or a Matter of Barter?"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan

Worship Associate: Margie Davis

The fulfillment of the human spirit derives from development of the inherent potentials common to humankind - so implies the set of seven affirmations in the covenant of Unitarian Universalist congregations.  What has been the experience of our several American generations with individual worth and dignity?  Have they proved inherent?  Have they proved developable?  What has been your experience of worth and dignity in the marketplace of society - inherent worth or a matter of barter?

Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Steve Benton
Worship Associate: Susan Burnore

It's time to celebrate!  It's Rev. Jack's 5th anniversary at UUSP, and we celebrate his ministry and all the good things we've accomplished and enjoyed over those years.  AND we recognize and celebrate the Our Roots members - those current members who have been here for five years or longer.  They're the reason we've been successful and lasted all these years.

Don't miss the special Pot Luck Lunch after the service!
