If you seek a fellowship that encourages you through your spiritual journey but leaves its direction in your hands, we warmly welcome you to visit us at UUUS — East Orlando’s religiously open-minded Unitarian Universalist church.
UUUS is a "lay-led" congregation with a different topic every week, drawing speakers from academic, spiritual, and social justice organizations. Our Sunday Services are designed to illuminate different spiritual paths and strengthen our sense of self, family, and community.

Jason English – "Manifesting the Mind: The Psychedelic Renaissance"
Long demonized by the media and government, and consequently woefully misunderstood by the public at large, psychedelics are making a return into mainstream consciousness. Recently returned from the Psychedelic Sciences conference, UUUS member Jason English will provide a brief history of psychedelics, an overview of their potential benefits, and the latest research presented at the conference.

Amy Galpin, Ph.D. – "Faith and Murals: The Work of Alfredo Ramos Martinez and Jean Charlot"
Many people are familiar with the revolutionary disposition of the Mexican muralists. Often the murals painted in Mexico from 1920 to 1950 are associated with the Mexican Revolution, communism, and even anarchy. However, the story of Mexican Muralism does not exist in a vacuum. It possesses many narratives, including the work of Alfredo Ramos Martinez and Jean Charlot. Both artists were on the periphery of Mexican Muralism and both moved to the United States in 1929. Much of their later work reflected their Christian faith. This talk offers a comparative analysis of their art and the links between their religious art and Mexican Muralism. Amy Galpin is curator at the Cornell Museum at Rollins College.

Rev. Bryan Fulwider – "Wells Dug Too Deep For War"
On the eve of the anniversary of the most deadly public mass shooting in American history, we will pause to remember and reflect, and to consider our way forward. In the larger context of a society energized by deadly violence, fixated on the "foreign" enemy, comforted by the promise of the "strong man" as protector of the realm, and more comfortable with punitive rather than restorative justice — how does the thoughtful person find a way forward? We will consult the poet Wilfred Owen, the most highly regarded poet of World War I, as a guide who spoke profoundly then and now, and who offers a way forward in hope for our time and place.
We invite you to visit...and we hope you will visit more than once, because you will find a different focus every week. One thing is the same every week, though – we always offer the same principles, values, and warm welcome!
