Curious? There's still time to join the party!
All the women who want to participate will spend the day together, 9am to 4pm on Saturday, January 27th.
It begins at 9:30am when Rev. Melissa Mummert continues the “Sunday School” presentation she began in November about the origins and history of Unitarian Universalism. Intriguing and entertaining! If you've ever had questions about what UU is and where it came from, this is a great way to get the answers.
For the 11:00am service, Melissa shares thoughts about transformation - especially regarding gender.
Many (most?) of us go through our entire lives thinking of gender as a fixed point, as one aspect of ourselves that cannot change. But is that really true? And if it's not true, what are the far-reaching implications?
AFTER THE SERVICE!
Immediately after the service. we'll have a fundraiser pot-luck meal we're calling "The Souper Bowl" (with a nod toward the next Sunday's football game). The idea is to share a simple meal together at which we make contributions toward helping the underfed and underhoused in our community.
Watch this space (and listen for Announcements in the service) for more details.
Our theme for February is “LOVE” ...
... and Rev. Melissa Mummert starts it off with a talk is called "The Alchemy of Relationship." An intriguing title for what promises to be an unforgettable service!
