Sunday, June 12th Rev. Mary Grigolia: "Belonging!"

Groucho Marx once said, “I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member.” Why do we join (or not join) a congregation? UU’s share principles, not dogma.

Sunday, June 26th Edie Fuschman:

Many of us struggle with attempts to organize and keep our life’s chaos in control.  We can’t manage it.  It is the chaos that brings forth life and love and beauty and new growth.  In the void there was nothing.  At some point there was something and some things.  Then, eventually life was formed.  We must find a balance between the perfect structure and the messy perfection that is a healthy happy life.

Rev. Mary Grigolia“Summer Poetry Reflections, or, Need More Rumi?”

I invite you to join me for three poetry reflections as Sunday morning services: July 10, July 24 and August 14, reflecting on: Who we are (as individuals, as a spiritual community, as a religious movement) to the Mystery, to each other? How does Life speak (or dance or hold presence) through us? On July 10, bring a favorite poem from Rumi. On July 24, a short reading from Mary Oliver. On Aug 14, a favorite piece from a different poet (perhaps yourself).
