Mary Oliver’s poem called The Summer Day inspires this deep, life-long examination of the purpose of our life. We’ll begin with those who have been on this planet the briefest amount of time, hearing their wisdom.
Our faith tells us that “Love Resists” which can make it hard work. What are ways we can find to refill the tank in order to help us keep up the faith?
We’ll examine the virtue of generosity, that thing that feeds our soul while it supports religious living. Today we’ll thank our teachers and lift up the many people who are keepers of the hall.
What is “learned behavior” as it relates to racial prejudice? We’ll compare legal (de jure) discrimination and cultural (de facto) discrimination considering where we are today.
Our annual meeting following the service inspires our time together today. Bring a flower to offer for our annual flower communion, and consider the meaning of spirit speaking in our lives.
As the Rev. Mary Harrington wrote, “All of us have been mothered in our time, all of us have mothered.” Today, we’ll dedicate some of our babies and children, remembering the gift of life itself and our commitment to each other.
As we celebrate International Workers Day, we’ll also acknowledge our delightful choir and say goodbye to our director. Come hear beloved music and consider the wonderful history of May Day.
Members of our fellowship will share brief spiritual odysseys of their journey to this place. Come, and learn something new about them and yourself.
It’s Earth Day! Many around the country will be marching with signs supporting the facts of science. Bring your signs with you to worship today, and we’ll kick off our new recycling program, too.
One of our strongest traditions comes from Humanist teachings “which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science.” Where did this strain come from? How is it with us now?
