February 8, 2015 (Two services, at 9:30 and 11:00)

How can we as UUs reach out in love to our members afflicted with dementia and those who love and care for them? Jim Sparkman, Bob Jacobson, and Doreen Souza, who have knowledge in this area will share their reflections on how we can begin. We'll have a conversation on the topic after the second service in the conference room in the block building. We invite you all to join the conversation.

January 18, 2015 (Two services, at 9:30 and 11:00)
Adlai Frederickson

Pagans, Politics and Social Justice: Exploring the interconnectedness of our global society and the interrelatedness of life's ecosystems. Based in large part on the excellent book Coming Back to Life by Joanna Macy and Molly Brown. Touching on differing perspectives of the role of human existence on Earth and emphasizing the crucial point we are at in our human history because of the precarious state of our environment and the existing threats to establishing and maintaining a Life Sustaining Society by turning away from the recklessness of the global corporate empire.

The Next Right Step
January 11, 2015 (Two services, at 9:30 and 11:00)
Rev. Darcy Baxter

When preparing for a journey, we can get overwhelmed by the distance we want to travel. How can we ever get from here to there? In truth, all we can do is take the next right step, and then the next.

Let Go, Begin Again
January 4, 2015 (ONE service, at 10:00 am)
Rev. Darcy Baxter

What do you need to release in order to move forward in 2015? Rev. Darcy will lead the congregation's annual "burning off" ritual.
Music: Elizabeth Coard, piano.

Note: We leave some previous sermon topics here, to give you an idea of the things we talk about. It is easier to show "eclectic" than to spell it. We have several sermon collections as well.
