Sunday Services 9 & 11 am

Church-wide Theme for April: freedom, spontaneity and play

Sunday worship

April 30: The Trickster and White Supremacy
Rev. Gail Seavey, Worship Associate Ron Turner
The Trickster is an archetype that helps us see both the glory and the limits of the freedom to be ourselves. This service will help us see how institutional racism keeps us all from being free.  NOAH will present a way we can help locally to dismantle that system.

 

Church-wide Theme for May: Interdependence

May 7: “Declaration of Interdependence”
Rev. Gail Seavey, Worship Associate Steve Haruch, Social Justice Co- Chair Jessica Moore-Lucas
We will explore connections across boundaries and borders, from the Good Samaritan to the Sanctuary church and from the U.S. Declaration of Independence to the UUA Declaration of Conscience.

May 14: “Tracing the Web of Interconnectedness”
Rev. Gail Seavey and Worship Associate Valerie Martin
The “butterfly effect” within chaos theory tells us that the smallest actions can send ripples much farther out than we’ll ever know, affecting situations and people in far-flung places. A missed train can lead to meeting the person you’ll later marry. As we examine our interconnectedness in big and small ways, we have many questions, including: how did we all end up here, in this place, together?

We will celebrate Child Dedications today. Please contact Gail Seavey (gseavey@thefuun.org) by May 9 if you would like to know more about it or would like to participate.

May 21: “The Interdependent Web of All Ages”
FUUN Children and Youth, with their Volunteers and
Director of Lifespan Religious Education Marguerite Mills
Our children and youth are dependent on the adults in their lives, and further, the adults also depend on them—that’s the interdependent web of our 7th Principle at work. Come and
experience some of what our FUUN children and youth did this year. You can depend on them for some new insights and
wisdom!

May 28: “The Stream of Time” 
Rev. Gail Seavey and Worship Associate Rachel Rogers
Is time an illusion or is it as real as a DVD? Is there a past—a now— and a present? Or is change an illusion? Why do many pray for the dead on Memorial Day? Do their lives affect us now? Are we interdependent with people from times other than the present?
