April 27, 2014  Worship: Rev. Megan Lloyd Joiner -Trusting Each Other, Trusting Ourselves

Trust, suspicion, and self-doubt are learned behaviors. So how do we learn or unlearn them? What difference might trusting ourselves and others make in the way we live our lives and engage with our community?

 

May 4, 2014  Worship: Seeking Thomas: Good News for Unitarian Universalists?

Rev. Megan Lloyd Joiner  "Those who seek should not stop seeking until they find..." These words and others from the "secret" Gospel of Thomas offer unexpected insights for skeptics and believers alike. This Gnostic gospel might be one of the earliest written documents containing sayings of a very human Jesus of Nazareth. What might the character of the apostle Thomas - doubter, seeker and Gnostic saint - and "his" gospel hold for today's Unitarian Universalism?

 

May 11, 2014 Worship: If There is to be Peace in the World: A Mother’s Day Sermon,

Rev. Megan Lloyd Joiner  Arise, then, women of this day! Unitarian Julia Ward Howe issued the original Mother’s Day Proclamation, a call for international peace, in 1870. Today, Mother’s Day is a time for women and men alike to reflect on how we care for each other and our world.

 

May 18, 2014 Worship: This service is being organized, planned, and facilitated by the SUUS youth group:"What Do You Plan to Do with Your One Wild and Precious Life?"  Mary Oliver's poem, "The Summer Day", asks this profound question at the end. We have asked 10 people from the congregation, each representing a decade of life spanning 100 years, to answer this question.
