9:15 Discussion Group, Topic: "Survival of the Fittest or Survival of the most co-operative"
10:30 Service: Ellen Nielsen and the Congregation, Palm Sunday, a UU Flower Communion           In this service we will celebrate the coming of spring.   Founder of the Unitarian movement in Czechoslovakia, Rev. Dr. Norbert Căpek began the Unitarian tradition of the flower communion to bring people closer to together.  The Gestapo imprisoned Căpek, who died at Dachau concentration camp in October 1942.   However, his message of hope and humanity lives on as we can see in the beauty and diversity of flowers the symbolic beauty and diversity of life.   Please bring a flower to share (preferably one of the many native Florida flowers that are blooming now).

9:15 Discussion Group, Topic:
10:30 Service:
Cliff Jackson, “How to Change Your World”
For most of his life, Cliff was a collector of interesting aphorisms:  Gandhi's "Be the change you want to see in the world" etc.   They were great to insert in conversations or to muse about how wonderfully concise they were.  However, at one point in his life, things changed.  Cliff began to apply some of these gems of wisdom moment by moment.  Aman Motwane says it best, "When You Change How You See the World, Your Whole World Changes."  Let’s borrow from the TED talks theme of “Ideas Worth Sharing.”  TED talk speakers learn not just to tell their stories— but to re-live them.  We too can change our perspective and change our world
