Upcoming Pulpit Presentations 

January 26, 2020

9:15 Discussion Topic: "A Lesson that Entirely Transformed Our Life” leader: John Murray

Dan Gribbin, “Ingenuity and Touching Humanity:  Lessons from Slave Narratives”
 
The phrase “man’s inhumanity to man” doesn’t begin to describe the way Africans were treated when they were brought to America as slaves.  Little wonder that so many risked their lives and the lives of their families in order to escape the South for freedom in Massachusetts, New York, or Canada.  Dan will tell the story of their courage, their ingenious escape mechanisms, and the kindness of people who helped them on their way.
Service Leader: Denise Carter
 

February 2:
9:15 Discussion Topic:
Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, Question Box Sermon   
Rather than having Rev Kathy come to the pulpit with a prepared manuscript, you get to decide what the talk is about!  Come to this service prepared with a question for Rev Kathy about Unitarian Universalism including our Seven Principles, our history, our spiritual values and practices, and she’ll try to answer on the spot.                                    Service Leader: Cliff Jackson                                                                                                                                                 

February 9:
9:15 Discussion Topic:
Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, “Michael Servetus: Martyr for Unitarianism” The first in a series of Unitarian Universalist history sermons, Servetus’ story will be presented. Servetus is one of the most interesting figures in our history which dates back to the 16th century and the beginning of the Protestant Reformation.    Service Leader: Ellen Nielsen

February 16:
9:15 Discussion Topic:
Rev. Dr. James Shoopman, “The Struggle to Forgive”  Dr. Shoopman will discuss our ongoing struggle to release ourselves from the quest to "get even," or at least get justice for the injuries and insults we inevitably suffer.  One of the many "problems of suffering," in life is the struggle to give greater place to love, understanding and a more peaceful way to live.                       

Service Leader: Rita Scheeler

February 23:
9:15 Discussion Topic:
Rev. Kathy Rickey, “As the Spirit Moves”  
It’s time once again to let inspiration be its own guide.  We have the opportunity to allow the spirit to move within and see what bubbles up.
Service Leader: Paul Pritchard
