MALCOLM AND MARTIN
January 16th

Malcolm and Martin: Comparing Malcolm X and MLK most people know Malcolm X as the guy that said “by any means necessary”, and MLK as the non-violent one. What if, however, our perceptions of the two men are tainted not by their actual actions and words, but how they made us feel? One we remember as welcoming and talking about love, the other we remember as confrontational and talking about violence. Are our memories correct? Come to church to find out.

Inoculated Against Each Other?
January 9th
Most of the time when Unitarian Universalist Minister preach about justice issues, they are preaching to the choir, sometimes literally. Sometimes, however, there are issues that cut through the community, where people, even within UU circles don’t agree. Vaccines seems to be in controversial topic of our times. But if we don’t talk about controversial things, we will never make it through together.

The service will include readings, meditation, beautiful music, and ritual.

Groundhog Day. Did you see the movie in the ’90s? Bill Murry was tortured by having to live the same day over and over again. In the end though, he was able to turn his circumstance into opportunity. He perfected his day, and made the most out of it. What if we lived each day as if it were practice for improving ourselves for the rest of our lives? Come hear about it from someone talented enough to preach and play for this service, as Roger Corman is our guest speaker.

Many cultures recognize that this is the time of the year when the world feels a bit spooky.

Sunday Service – We Belong Together

SERVICE LEADERS: Rev. Bonnie Dlott and Era Capone
with Worship Associate Clare Whitfield
MUSIC: Roger Corman
We Belong Together

Belonging is a basic human need. We identify ourselves by who we belong with, as members of families, residents of town or cities, and members of political parties, churches, and possibly baseball teams. At the service today, we will explore what “belonging” to a religious community can mean, explicitly and implicitly, and consider why the experience of “belonging” can be transformative in some cases, and meaningless in others.
