“The Tipping Point of Balance” – Rev. Dr. Marlene Walker Our Soul Matters theme for March is “Balance.” This service will focus on how, and where, we find that still-point of balance in our lives and why it is so very important to do so. Since this is the first Sunday of the month, we will have a Beyond-These-Four-Walls presentation at this service on another of our RUSD schools named after a founding member of our congregation – J.I. Case High School – which will be our offertory-outreach recipient for March.

“Roots, Branches & Wings” – a lay-led musical service (Jim Kuntzelman) Join in a song-filled service (sing or listen…) as a returning (from the 70’s) member presnts an examination of Olympia Brown Church in three parts: Recognizing Our Roots, Strengthening our Branches, and Spreading our Wings. While not a detailed examination of our history, it may provide some framework for our upcoming historical celebration.
(This will be a non-traditional service, so be prepared to reexamine what “worship” can be.)

“175th Anniversary Celebration Service” – Anniversary Committee Join us for a celebration of 175 years! The first church service of the Universalist Society of Racine was March 25, 1843 in the courthouse. We will celebrate the occasion with a historical presentation by Keith Kohlmann, a timeline display created by the History Committee (Ruth Bradford-Johnson, Andrea Bumpurs, Andy McLean, Judith Christianson, Jim Kuntzelman and Anita Miller), and a new song, “Lift Up the Gates!” by Jason Shelton and Kendyl Gibbons, performed by our choirs. This song, inspired by the writings of Olympia Brown, was commissioned for our anniversary with the help of Reverend Marlene Walker.
