Sunday, July 3, 2016 – 10:00 a.m.
“Conscientious Objectors” In “A Conversation about War 50 Years Ago,” Jim Fergus and John Lehman will share their thoughts from 1966 that led them to become conscientious objectors. Friends for over 60 years, as college seniors Lehman and Fergus faced a military draft with their deferments running out. Neither had been influenced against the Vietnam War by extreme protest events like draft-card burning, but both had attended small peace demonstrations. This service, coordinated by our Worship Associates Committee, includes guitarist Joel Fuerstenau singing songs about war and peace.
We will also have a Beyond-These-Four-Walls presentation on Open Wings Learning Community, which will be our offertory-outreach recipient for July.
Sunday, July 10, 2016 – 10:00 a.m.
Mark Sommer and Jeff Siuta will lead this service about our society’s seeming need for heroes – in both myth and religion. Do we really need heroes – or do they diminish us in some way?
Sunday, July 17, 2016 – 10:00 a.m.
“The Science of Gratitude” is the topic for our service led by April Woods, who will use “The Happiness Project” and Eat, Pray, Love as resources. Suzanne Landis and other members of the Worship Associates will assist during the service, along with members of The Meditation Group.
Sunday, July 24, 2016 – 10:00 a.m.
“Well-Told Tales” What is it about stories – historical, legendary, and fictional – that makes them so valuable in shaping not only our world, but our personal journeys in that world? Our own master storyteller Mary Norris will lead this service.
Sunday, July 31, 2016 – 10:00 a.m.
“The Science of the Unseen” What can we know (or infer) about the things we cannot see? And is there any point – religious or otherwise – in exploring such a subject? Nick Demske and Christy Domanoski will lead this service.
Since this is a 5th Sunday, we will have a Beyond-These-Four-Walls presentation on the “UU Ministry for Earth,” which will be our Offertory Outreach recipient for today.
