May 3 – Fast, Faster, Fasting

with Rev. Gy

Hundreds of millions of Muslims all over the world are currently fasting during the month of Ramadan as a means of spiritual growth.  In fact, most major religions have incorporated fasting as part of sacred rituals at one point or another. New scientific research has revealed health benefits of fasting too. Rev. Gy will help us explore the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of refraining from not only food but the other things in our lives that may be weighing us down. 

May 10 – It’s a Marathon

with Rev. Gy

This Sunday will be 56 days since we suspended in-person services and moved all our programming into a virtual space.  As this time of physical distancing from friends, family, and our faith community stretches on, we have come to realize that the journey we are on is not a sprint, but a marathon.   Rev. Gy will speak about the importance of self-care to maintain energy and endurance for the long haul. 

May 7 – The Ones Who Become Our Blessings

with Rev. Gy

Isolation from family and friends has helped to remind us that it is not purchases or possessions that bring us joy.  It is the people in our lives that are most important.

May 24 – Remembering

with Rev. Gy

The ability to remember can be a gift. We can remember with joy and fondness things that happened in the past and people who are no with us. But memory can also be a source of intense pain and suffering. How differently might we treat ourselves and others if we recognize and make space for all of the facets of remembering?

May 31 – Generosity

with Rev. Gy

At several times during the year this Unitarian Universalist community pledges its Sunday plate collection to different organizations in our community. These Generosity Sundays are one way we strive to provide support to causes that enrich life. Rev. Gy will speak about this UU Way of Generosity and we will have a special collection for Planned Parenthood of Michigan.
