"Sacred Community" - Rick Johnson
What does the term "sacred community" mean in an increasingly secular and virtual society? Can there truly be a sacred community for people who do not necessarily hold to a common definition of the word "sacred?" Even then, with the convenience and ease of creation that virtual communities provide, have congregations such as ours reached the end of our shelf-life? Or do we have something to offer today's interconnected generation? Richard Johnson will lead this morning's service as we investigate the relevance of real-life, non-virtual congregations. Children's Religious Education will be provided.

"The Iowa Sisterhood: Prophetic Frontier Women in Ministry" - Kathy Bowman
In the late 1800's a group of strong Unitarian women ministers filled pulpits in what was then the western frontier. We will tell some of their stories; sing songs and read poems about their struggles, reflect on the courage that it took to break gender stereotypes in that era, and attempt to fathom what lessons we might learn for today's women and men as they attempt to redefine power relationships. This will be a service of herstory, history, and human potential.
