Speaker:  Rev. Bud Murphy, retired

This week's service focuses on what liberal religion is and why we're grateful for it.  We'll also have some fun with a 'shaggy dog story' and some inspiration from gorgeous music by Teresa Ancaya and Terri Vernon.  Everyone is invited to stay after the service for the Tinstaafl luncheon.  You'll have to come to find out what that is!

Sunday, March 11, 2018: "RESPONSIBILITY AND PERSONAL CULTIVATION #2: Is Culture For You or Against You? And Your Response?"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan

You could say that our Inner Natures develop within Outer Nature through different stages of growth and responsibility.  At some point, it seems, a lot of us find a need to ask, Is (our) culture for us or against us?  National Womens' History Month has made that question hugely pressing, as has Black History Month and Pride Week and Labor Day.  Each of us, it seems, has reason to ask that question.  Perhaps Tina Fey's Bossypants has a response.  Perhaps Confucius' Great Communion or Thoreau's Walden or Exodus's Great Covenant.  Maybe Grow Gainesville's Melissa DeSa, the seed whisperer, has a response  Maybe we need to.

Sunday, March 4, 2018: "RESPONSIBILITY AND PERSONAL CULTIVATION #1: Your Growth and Your Response to Nature"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan

We reach an age where we are considered responsible, to one degree or another, for our own behavior and its consequences.  That responsibility includes influencing the potentials that unfold in us at different stages of our maturation.  Nature inside us is fundamental to that potential; Nature outside of us is fundamental as an influence on our potential's unfolding and fulfillment.  What is our responsibility regarding this natural unfolding and influence?  Kind of a good question for the middle of Lent and Spring.
