November 6:  The Truth Will Set You Free

with Rev. Harold Beu

In our nation today, and indeed, in the world, there seems to be a movement away from people seeking the truth.  Instead too many have become captivated by harmful illusions. We must find a way to reverse this trend for the good of all humanity.

November 13: When Hope is Hard to Find

with Rev. Gy

Unitarian Universalists believe in the interconnected web of all things but as a species, we are causing the 6th mass extinction. Fear is a paralyzer; hope is a motivator. But where does the stark reality of the existential end of life as we know it lay? Rev. Gy will reflect on Climate Change in this talk purchased at the Service Auction by Nicky Leigh.

November 20:  Farming: A Breath of Air

with Chaz Rawls

Being able to grow your own food is our human right but less than 2% of farmers in America are African American.  A metaphor for that shocking number is the George Floyd incident.  George Floyd was accused of using counterfeit money and then treated unreasonably by the authorities due to race, culture, and environment. Mr. Floyd’s days came to an end with him saying he couldn’t breathe.  How does this play into farming? There are obstacles placed in front of minorities due to their race, culture, and environment that make it that much harder for  BIPOC farmers to breathe.

November 27:  At the Welcome Table

with Miriam Epskamp

Unitarian Universalists have two annual traditions

that are celebrated this time of year: the Guest at Our Table offering and Bread Communion. Today, we’ll incorporate both into our celebration as we reflect on how we experience love through sharing in community and in sharing with others. If you attend this service in person, please bring some of your favorite bread to share on our Welcome Table.
