February Sunday Services
"A Look Into Our Inquiring Minds Class"
Steve Hall and Roy Scherer
Every Sunday morning, a group of UUUS members and friends gathers for interesting discussions during the hour before the church service. Today, two longtime participants in this "Inquiring Minds" group will give us a sample of the format and the participatory nature of the group, addressing a recent topic: "Why Is There Evil?" The group has been using video lectures from The Great Courses series Why Evil Exists to start their engaging discussions. Since ancient times, questions surrounding evil have preoccupied every major religion, as well as many of history's greatest secular thinkers, from early philosophers to contemporary social theorists. Come and get a taste of an Inquiring Minds session on this intriguing topic.
"Love is the Spirit of this Church"
Our congregational affirmation or covenant is something we say each week during our Sunday service. The words are familiar and are repeated with heartfelt meaning. This Sunday, we’ll hear personal stories from several of our members who have found greater connection and fulfillment by embracing this affirmation through work in the church and in the community. “Love is the spirit of this church and service its gift” – to those we help and to ourselves.
Italian Potluck After Service
"Issues of Class: The Unitarians and the Universalists, Then and Now"
We often identify the differences in theology between the Unitarians and the Universalists, but it is an uncomfortable truth that one of the biggest challenges and differences was that of class. We will explore the issue of class from both sides of our history and talk about why and how it is more relevant now than ever.
Quarterly Meeting After Service
“Pieta: A Meditation on Grief, Violence on Brown Bodies, and Performing Catharsis”
