9:15 Discussion Group Topic:"WOULD YOU RATHER BE RIGHT OR HAPPY?"
10:30 Service:—  Dan Kerr, “Why It’s Important to be a UU Now”   Today we are struck by the question:  Why don’t neighbors live peacefully together without the threat of terrorism, bigotry, hatred, and isolationism?   What can we do about a world in such turmoil?  The answer lies in who we are as Unitarians.  Instead of a sermon this Sunday, our choir will share five readings with the congregation, followed by singing five new anthems, describing the five steps of Unitarian Universalism that can lead us to counter the negative world we live in.
Service Leader: Denise Carter

9:15 Discussion Group Topic:
10:30 Service:——Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, “Original Blessing”   Matthew Fox, a Dominican Priest, was defrocked in 1993 for claiming that all people are born in Original Blessing, not sin and that all of creation is the original blessing of an immanent God. Perhaps more of a factor in his ex-communication is Fox’s attempt to theologically reconcile science and religion.  Fox’s Creation Spirituality will be the springboard for this month’s worship theme of “Blessing.”

10:30 Service:——Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, “Gaia: Mother of Us All                         With Earth Day and environmental consciousness not far behind us, let’s examine some of the ways in which we revere and revile our Mother Earth and how she nurtures, teaches, and punishes us in our human naiveté.                                                     Service Leader: Carolyn West

 May 21, 2017

 9:15 Discussion Group Topic:
10:30 Service:——Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, “Mixed Blessings”  It has been said that often when we claim to be “blessed” we are actually proclaiming our privilege. How do we distinguish blessings which are unearned and un-asked from those which arise from material wealth and station in life? Also, blessings often arise from sorrow and vice versa. How do we recognize this phenomenon when it happens and how can we stay buoyed in life when the universe seems so indifferent to our pain?

9:15 Discussion Group Topic:
10:30 Service:——Ted Mashburn, “From Fundamentalism to Freedom: How I Changed My Mind”      Dr. Ted Mashburn, professor of philosophy and theology at the University of Mobile, describes his life journey within Christianity: “I’ve known for a long, long time—nearly 45 years—that my views were very different from the tradition that birthed, educated, and now even employs me.”  Dr. Mashburn is making a special trip from Alabama on May 27-28 to share his ideas with us.  Please welcome him with your hospitality.                                                            Service Leader: Patty Alsobrook
