Schedule of Worship Services

November 4  “Bumper Stickers”
Why do we remember and forget the things we do? Most memories are whole brain which often involves more than one brain center, sometimes all of the brain. Do our senses help us decide? What do we think about our memories?  Presented by Lisa Helms, coordinated by Carole Ryder.

November 11 “For Memory and Sanctuary” 
This service is about places where we feel grounded and renewed, if only in our minds, and which are vital to our emotional and spiritual well-being. Presented by Andrea Allen.

November 18 “The ‘He’ and ‘She’ of it All”
A recorded sermon about transgender by Rev. Bill Sinkford, past President of the UUA. Coordinated by Pat Jacobson

 
November 25 “UU Soup: Season to Taste” 
Presented by Rev. Robin Landerman Zucker. In Unitarian Universalism, our birthright or adopted tradition, I often wonder (even, fret) about the degree of communal memory or the level of familiarity with the UU “recipe.” Critics both inside and outside of our movement suggest that we are a smorgasbord of side dishes with no main course; a “salad bowl religion,” or worse, a twice-warmed Sunday supper of what my Grandma Esther would call  Kakapitzamadritza — leftovers! In reality, we are a more akin to a soup base that has simmered for centuries, rich in its integrity, courage, and faithfulness. Our UU soup blends cabbage from Transylvania, sausage from Poland, corn from the Iowa Sisterhood, fine wine from the Enlightenment, a meaty bone from the New Englanders. “Eat this in remembrance of me,” calls out Michael Servetus, William Ellery Channing, Olympia Brown. How shall we answer them as post-modern, open-minded freethinkers?  Coordinated by Harriet Parsons.
Pot luck to follow: we suggest that you bring soup, salad, or bread.
