June 16, 2019 “New Beginnings” (Rev. Michael)
It’s the last service of the old “church year” and, especially considering we will be done with Annual Meeting, the birth of the new. In this Multi-Generational Worship service, we will celebrate what has been and share our visions of what will be. The service also features our annual Flower Communion so bring a flower—or three—from your garden, your neighbor’s garden, or the store to share in this beloved ceremony.

SUNDAE SUNDAY! Gather in Parish Hall after the service!
June 30, 2019 “The UUJME at 50 (almost)” (Jim Smart)
Jim will talk about the origin & activities of UUs for Justice in the Middle East (UUJME), including the trips to Palestine that they sponsor and the important work they do at General Assembly (GA) authoring Resolutions and Statements of Immediate Witness. Their main purpose is to bear witness to our denomination of acts of terror in Israel/Palestine and to advocate for full equal rights for everybody under Israel’s jurisdiction.
IN UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISM, you can bring your whole self: your full identity, your questioning mind, your expansive heart.

-Words and deeds of prophetic people which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love;
-Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;
-Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;
-Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit;
-Spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
