What does “kinship” mean to someone who is over 65 and to another under 35? What values and experiences bind people of a given generation? Where do we find common ground across the span of ages and worldviews? Come hear the perspectives and insights of a panel of UUFCO folk as we close out September's theme of kinship.
The Greater Community Collection resumes this month. September’s recipient will be NAMI: National Alliance of Mental Illness. Read more on our Social Justice page.
~ Lay-Led Service with writings shared by Joanne Willson, Maggie Miller, and Janet Russell
Writing members and friends of our congregation have been meeting together for several years, meeting every other Wednesday upstairs at Dudley’s Bookstore. This service will feature some of the fruit of their labor, and will offer an exercise for those in the congregation to explore.
Feeling like we’re part of a group is a basic human need. How we belong is a lot more complicated and sometimes costly. As UUs, on what basis do draw our circles of belonging? Is belonging a spiritual practice?
Lay-Led Service: Janet Russell, Speaker
This intergenerational service will be a non-traditional, experiential exploration of play. A variety of activities will be offered that may let us each experience a bit of the flow state of play. Dr. Stuart Brown's TED talk on play's importance is a great introduction to the service that provides background for the topic.
