July 30, 2023: Stevan Elliott. Topic: The Many Paths to Spirituality.
August 6, 2023: Fran Kriston. Topic: Frederick Douglass. This will be the second part of the Frederick Douglass presentation. The first part was presented on July 2.
August 13, 2023: Dave Sliney. Topic: There will be two topics this week. One will be, "Pattern Recognition." The other will be, "The Reconstruction Era." For the first topic, the presentation will discuss how pattern recognition has relevance to topics such as early childhood development, interpersonal relationships, the arts, and socio-political issues. Regarding the second topic, what can we learn about the white re-writing of the history of reconstruction and the development of the Jim Crow South and today's efforts to spin current history?
August 20, 2023: Helen Mann and Kelly Blackburn. Please join us as we explore the creative interplay between image and meaning. We will have the opportunity to reflect upon, discuss, and create our own unique images of our UU faith.
August 27, 2023: Tracey Waite. Topic: "How to Save a Forest" Have you ever felt a bond with a special tree, perhaps when you were a child? Have you loved a particular forest? In this talk, we'll have an opportunity to see how common the love for forests is and how we can protect what we love.
September 3, 2023: The church will be closed on September 3. Regular weekly minister-led services will resume on September 10.
September 10, 2023: Rev. Mike Franch. Topic: "The Work of the Congregation: Post Labor Day Reflections." It's easy to compare congregations to honeybee hives; there's lots of buzzing around and sweet stuff to share. They're similar, but not the same. In the hive, all bees work. In a congregation, nobody is required to work, just being there can be enough. But somebody must do the work, and unlike bees, we get to choose our work, do it for a while, change jobs, or just rest. That's another thing that's both a similarity and a difference: bees gather pollen for the good of the hive, but in so doing do the good work of pollination. Pollination is a byproduct. Congregations do good work in the world not simply as a byproduct, but as an essential aspect of their life. Whether internal or external, we can do good work.
September 17, 2023: Rev. Dr. Gabriele L. Parks. Topic: "So, you are the minister? Then you'll be able to answer all those questions I have..." There are a lot of questions around the topics of God/gods, spirit, religion, theology, sin and salvation, etc. In an interactive "sermon," Rev. Gabi will give you her (personal) answers - but first she'll ask for yours!!!
September 24, 2023: Rev. Meg Mathieson. Topic: "Communion with Our Ancestors."8

The Unitarians were considered heretics, but it was the Universalists Book really caught if from the orthodox. And with good reason: by removing hell from the religious equation they completely upset the dogmatic applecart, taking away the prime motivator for religiously towing the line. With no fear of hell, the orthodox feared chaos. With no fear of hell, the Universalists opened up a whole new world freedom and joy that transformed religion in the West. And we are their ambassadors today.
