TED Talk: Redefining Climate Change Denial

Climate change denial has historically been defined as the overt refusal
to accept the scientific understanding that climate change is happening,
humans are causing it, and that it will have bad, to catastrophic, consequences
for humans and the ecosystems upon which we depend. But as that viewpoint
has become untenable in the face of overwhelming evidence, this talk explores
the more subtle, passive forms of climate change denial that are still pervasive
in the 2020s. By recognizing these passive forms of denial in our everyday lives,
we enable ourselves to move past them, and begin working towards climate
solutions every day.

Patrick Belmont is a dad and river scientist with a rapidly shrinking carbon footprint.
He thoroughly enjoys studying some things that almost nobody cares about, like how
and why rivers meander, but he spends most of his time trying to solve society’s most
pressing problems, like figuring out where all that mud in the Mississippi River comes
from and how to reduce impacts of wildfire in the western US. And of course, he is
dead serious about stopping climate change. Service led by the TED Talk team.

Interdependence: Entangled & Evolving Together

Keeping faith with life, we lift up wisdom from humanity and beyond, to remember
who we are in Earth’s unfolding story of co-creation, justice and Love.
Service led by Zellda Zelley & Rev. Mary.

April 21
The Tide is Rising, and So Are We!

A call to hope and action on climate change.

Climate change presents a formidable challenge, but humans are a formidable species. 
Join us this Earth Day to learn about reasons for hope in the fact of climate change,
and how we as a congregation can have a big impact. 
Service offered by Cindy Frantz, a climate activist and long-time member of OUUF.

April 28
Living by Covenant

At the heart of OUUF is a covenant describing how we will treat one another, embodying
“power-with,” as opposed to “power-over.” The Committee on Ministry (COM) will share
how we support each other in living up to these promises and this vision.
Service led by members of COM: Tina Graf, Katie Cross, Marge Diamond & Rev. Mary.

After the service, at 4 p.m., COM invites members and friends to a Listening Circle, to capture
feelings and plans for welcoming our new minister in the church year 2024-25. There will be
two additional Listening Circles on Sunday May 5 at 1 p.m. and June 3 at 5:30 p.m.
Pizza will be served after each Listening Circle.
