Upcoming Sunday Services
"Labor Day, Not Just Another Day Off!"
Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. Since 1884, it constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. How do we, as people of faith who affirm and promote justice, equity and compassion for all, best support workers in our country? Let's start the conversation!
Annual UUUS Water Service
The annual water ritual at UUUS is a time for members, friends, and guests to share water from places that are special to them: new places visited; special times with family and friends; traditions closer to home; or perhaps symbolic water that represents life, energy, or conservation. The mingling of water and voices sharing from the heart represents the diversity of our congregation, our world, and the many sources of our faith tradition. Join us in sharing and as we welcome new members to our congregation.
POTLUCK AFTER SERVICE - Mexican Fiesta! It's Tacos, Tamales, and Fajita Time...
“Comparing Stoicism to Minimalism: Two Paths to Virtue”
Stoic Dan Lampert
Society is moving faster each year and becoming more consumeristic. We are reacting more and thinking less. But is there a way out? Stoicism – the Greco-Roman philosophy – can help us slow down, think clearly, and find the smooth path in life. The Minimalist movement shows us how to avoid excesses, do more with less, and increase joy in life. Both worldviews can help us find refuge and increase virtue. This short talk will be 15 minutes and have time for Q&A. StoicDan is the organizer of Orlando Stoics, Tampa Stoics, and the Emerson & Thoreau Discussion Group.
“Hope, DACA and Dreams”
Astrid Rodriguez and Teresa Young
Hope CommUnity Center serves the immigrant and working poor communities of Central Florida through programs of education, advocacy and spiritual growth. Families face extreme struggles every day related to relationships & communication, economic & housing stability, and immigration status. In this talk you will hear from a community member who has spent time in Hope’s programming since her adolescence and achieved many of her personal and professional goals because of the support she has received and the leadership skills that she has put into practice. You will learn more about what is new at Hope, special challenges that our community is facing, and how you can help communities in need that seek support and encouragement at Hope.
“Have a Little Faith”
Rev. Bryan G. Fulwider
Faith can be elusive and at times its meaning is difficult to grasp. We’ll wrestle with the idea of faith and what if means in its various forms. Do you find faith difficult or quite natural? And when you use the word faith what do you mean? We may not ‘cover’ all of what faith means, but we will hope to ‘uncover’ a few of the ways to think about it.
