In the mid 19th century, Unitarians and Universalists started and became involved in a number of intentional utopian communities. Often these communities began simply because the founders wanted to find a way to enact their lofty ideals. What can we learn from their efforts in our own attempts to build and sustain community?
We will have one service only today and it will begin at 9:45 at Plum Creek Park in Kent. Please bring a lawn chair or a blanket to sit on, sun screen or insect repellent and plan to stay for the morning. The service will be followed by an old-fashioned picnic to celebrate our church’s 150th anniversary. Please bring something to share in the pot-luck picnic lunch. We’ll enjoy home- made root beer and ice cream. Afterwards, we’ll have the opportunity to participate in games and activities of the 1800’s. If you wish, you may dress in the clothing styles of the 1860’s. If you’d like to help with this event, please contact Mary Leeson.
