March Services

March 6th Service, 10:30 AM (Rescheduled from February 14th)
"Will Our Democracy Survive Our Election?" - Rick Johnson
Lay Minister Richard Johnson will explore our current electoral drama in light of our Fifth Principle regarding the use of democratic principles in governance.  As Unitarian-Universalists we hold fast to our belief in "the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process in our congregations and society at large," as described in our Fifth Principle.  Yet at times events can conspire to challenge that belief.  This morning's service will focus on how we can, at times of disappointment and disillusionment in our country's governance, take hope in both the wisdom of our founders and the power of individuals to make a difference.  Children's religious education will be provided, and our traditional Coffee Hour will follow the service.

March 13th Service, 10:30 AM
"International Women's Day" - Karla Mundt
Karla Mundt will lead a program today celebrating International Women's Day.  We will examine a variety of women from our history and see how they have influenced their community, our nation, and the world.  Children's religious education will be provided, and our traditional Coffee Hour will follow the service.

March 20th Service, 10:30 AM
"Silent Spring"
As spring begins we will celebrate the season with a remembrance of Rachel Carson's seminal work, "Silent Spring".  We will watch a brief documentary regarding one of the examples cited by Carson, the use of DDT at the University of Michigan to combat the mosquito-borne disease, malaria.  Children's RE will be provided, and our weekly coffee hour will follow this morning's program.

March 27th Service, 10:30 AM
"Exploring Myths" - Rick Johnson
Lay Minister Richard Johnson will explore myth and how it is used to convey commonly held truths from one generation to another.  In our modern times the word "myth" has become associated with falsehood or fairytale.  Thus many classic myths have been robbed of their ability to convey important truths about our world, our culture, and ourselves.  Join us this morning as we seek to reclaim the power of myth in our lives.  Children's RE will be provided, and our weekly coffee hour will follow this morning's program.
