“Choose Something Like a Star”
Exploring the simple-seeming-but-complex and inspirational-sounding-but-always-with-a-touch-of-sadnessunderneath… poetry of Robert Frost. We will have a Beyond-These-Four-Walls presentation on Our Harmony Club, which is our offertory-outreach recipient for March.

Photographing ourselves has become so popular that we now have a special term for it: taking a “selfie.” But does our desire to catalogue everything we do or see sometime have the effect of taking us away from the experience of doing and seeing itself? And what might that have to do with faith and spirituality?
Our church’s history committee will give us a historical “minute” on the three candidates for UUA president (all women this year!).
The service will be shortened by 10 minutes to allow for an inter-service brunch to kick off our annual pledge drive, so the 9 a.m. service will finish 10 minutes earlier (9:50 a.m.) and the second service will begin 10 minutes later (11:10 a.m.). This will give us a full hour and 20 minutes (i.e., 9:50 to 11:10 a.m.) for the pledge kick-off brunch. So if you normally attend the first service, come at 9 a.m. as you usually do and just stay for the brunch; if you normally attend the second service, please come at 9:50 a.m. for the brunch and then stay for the 11:10 a.m. service.

“Up to Know Good”
Our high-school youth will help us celebrate Naw Ruz, the Zoroastrian celebration of spring (and Zoroaster’s birthday), as part of their life-cycle ceremony.
Tony’s sermon will help us explore the difficult question of how (or whether) we can reliably decide what’s the right thing to do in an ethically challenging situation. Not all dilemmas are easily answered by “the voice within,” or conscience. What standards, then, can guide us when “Jimminy Cricket” seems to be on vacation?

“I’ll Follow the Sun” On the first Sunday of spring our Olympia Brown Choir will sing for us, and our 3rd-5th graders will help us celebrate earth-centered traditions as part of their life-cycle ceremony. Tony’s sermon will explore the possible relevance of ancient Eostre mythologies to our present lives. What is “springing” up for you?
