Summer Schedule - One Service at 10:00 a.m.
Sunday, July 31Kniturgy: A Yarn Communion
Suzanne Smith and Angelia Robinson, NUUC Members and Guest Speakers
Knitting, crocheting, and other fiber arts are not simply creative outlets. They are metaphors for, as Bernadette Murphy puts it, "the web of unity connecting all life." [Zen and the Art of Knitting, 2002] Join us as we explore in reflection, song, and fiber the ways in which knitting and the yarn arts inspire spiritual growth through craft and community. Knitting, crocheting, and other hand work during the service are welcome and encouraged!
Sunday, August 7Revolution or Revelation
Zel McCarthy, NUUC Member and Guest Speaker
For much of this summer and indeed this year, it has seemed as though the world is falling apart. Many of us are looking for a solution, but what is it? Do we press the reset button, start a revolution and start fresh? Or are the answers somewhere in front of us already? Either way, how do we hold on to our faith in these changing and so often troubled times?Sunday, August 14What's In a Name?
Lexi Schwede, NUUC Member and Guest Speaker and Linda Doran, NUUC Member and Service Assistant
What's in a name? What's in a label? Do labels affect how we see the world? How we see ourselves? Reflecting on their own experiences, Lexi and Linda will discuss their own journeys with these very questions - their struggles, their triumphs, and the lessons they've learned along the way - in an effort to show that it is these very differences that make us all authentically human in our own way.Sunday, August 21Fun and Laughter as a Spiritual Practice
Grady Goddard and Clyde Derrick, NUUC Members and Guest Speakers
It has been said we do not laugh because we are happy, we are happy because we laugh. Grady and Clyde hope to explore how we can use Fun and Laughter in our lives as a spiritual practice to feel happier, live better and healthier, and be more content. Please park your serious side outside the door for an hour and bring your ability to laugh and have fun with you.Sunday, August 28Do You Want the Good News or the Bad News?
Chris Arnold, NUUC Member and Guest Speaker
