August 2013 Sermon Topics

Services are office on Sundays at 9:45 and 11:30 am.

August 4 – Reaching Across the Aisle
Led by Jennifer May with Worship Associate Joel Slater – It seems today that people disagree on more things than they agree on. Topics like abortion, marriage equality, immigration, universal healthcare are polarizing topics. Why is someone always right and someone always wrong? Why can’t politicians agree on seemingly anything to pass meaningful legislation? Why can’t people stop arguing on my Facebook feed?

August 11 – Lions and Tigers and Bears! Oh My!
Led by Kathy Walker and Saul Flanner – In this multimedia service, Kathy and Saul will explore the interdependent web of which we are all a part. We are not qualified to do so, but we think you’ll appreciate our attempt as we share our
limited experience with the seventh principle of Unitarian Universalism and the spirit animals that keep pestering Kathy to lead this service.

August 18 – Heirlooms, Curiosities, and Castoffs
Led by the Rev. Renee Ruchotzke with Worship Associate Justin Czekaj – Our lives are influenced by the legacy of those who preceded us. How might we choose what to keep and what to set aside as we attempt to live lives of authenticity and purpose?


August 25 – The Spiritual Wisdom of Children
Led by the Rev. Melissa Carvill-Ziemer, Director of Religious Education Karen Lapidus, and Worship Associate Sophie Smith – Everyone is invited to join together for our annual multigenerational, ingathering service. During this special service for all ages, we will celebrate coming together again for the start of a new church year as we lift up children and youth as a source of spiritual wisdom for us all. Nursery care will be provided for our littlest ones during both services.
Please bring a small vial of water and/or a small amount of earth from a place you have been this summer which has nourished your own spirit.
