Topics of Sunday Services for February 2017:

February 5: “Polishing the Mirror” Worship Associates Karen Brock and Janet Gillette

Who looks back when you look in the mirror? In discovering and owning the myriad identities that shape our lives, can we also discover a compassion and connection with others? Do we save ourselves by being true to each other? Join Worship Associates Karen Brock and Janet Gillette as they begin to explore February’s theme of identity with a focus on how we can become a more inclusive congregation. Our beloved Dona Leonard will join this exploration through her gift of dance.


February 12: “Delirious with Grace” Rev. Alicia Forde and Worship Associate Brenda Christiansen

Grace and Hope imagined us into being. How do we now harness their power to keep crafting a more Just future?  Join Rev. Alicia Forde and Worship Associate Brenda Christiansen as they explore the possibilities.  Currently, working for the UUA as Professional Development Director, Rev. Forde served as this congregation’s minister from August 2004 to March 2008.


February 19: “The Jewel in the Garbage Can (And the Lurking Serpent)” Rev. Robert Latham and Worship Associate Brad Willenbrock

Reverend Robert Latham returns to the pulpit to share with us the magic of social transformation. He will share an experience of evil in his personal living that became a shower of blessing. Worship Associate Brad Willenbrock will also reflect on the graces of unexpected transformation.  Jonathan Hoffman will be the accompanist.


February 26: “Living our Higher Selves: The Identities for which We Strive” Worship Associates David Urion and Doug Stewart

Worship Associates David Urion and Doug Stewart will leverage the February theme of Identity to explore realistic ways in which we can live our higher selves – and encourage one another to do so – without getting caught up in ‘should-itis’.
