Upcoming Sundays in May 2017

Sunday, May 7, 2017
Youth Sunday Service: “White Privilege” Our church’s high-school teens are creating a service based on Racism and White Supremacy. This service is partly in response to the recent hiring controversy in the UUA, which resulted in the UUA President, Peter Morales, resigning. Our youth chose to take on this topic due to Black Lives UU’s request for UU churches to spend April 30th or May 7th as a White Supremacy Teach-in. There are over 400 UU churches participating in the teach-in during these two Sundays. We will also have a Beyond-These-Four-Walls presentation on the American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin (ACLU) Foundation Inc., which is our offertory-outreach recipient for May.

“Mothers and Others for Peace” Our Multigenerational Choir will sing for us and Tony’s sermon will explore the original meaning (and history) of Mother’s Day. (Did you know that the day started out as a peace celebration – and that it was begun by a Unitarian who authored a very bellicose hymn?)

“The Meaning of Sanctuary” – 10:00 AM ONLY Service Schedule Begins Tony’s sermon will explore some of the history of the Sanctuary Movement (ancient and modern) – which we hope will be helpful when we hold our annual congregational meeting at 11:30 a.m. after the service, since immigration is an issue we will be dealing with at that meeting. Please note that this Sunday is the beginning of our summer-service schedule, which means there’s only one service each Sunday, at 10 a.m. (to be, as we say, “equally inconvenient to both 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. members”).

Sunday, May 28, 2017
“Bridging Sunday” A couple of our graduating seniors will be here to give us their “going away” thoughts at this service, and young adults will welcome them into the next stage of life.
