Sunday Service: Sept. 6, 2015
Service at 10 a.m.
“How Can We Connect With Those We Don’t Accept?”
Silvine Farnell, Worship Leader; Chris Rathweg, Worship Associate
Our last summer service will focus on Unitarian Universalism’s First Principle. We’re confronting this challenge–how can we “affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity” of those who seem to deny that worth and dignity to others? We’ll call on Karen Armstrong’s “12 Steps to a Compassionate Life” and “The Righteous Mind” by Jonathan Haidt to help us look deeply at why it can be so hard to even talk to such people in a helpful way, and what we can do to get beyond that difficulty and reach across the moral divide.
This Sunday’s Half-Plate: Trans Youth Education and Support (TYES) supports transgender and gender creative children and their families. TYES has helped over 300 families discover the unique needs of their children and the resources to support them. We follow this summer practice of a single recipient nominated through
the Social Justice Council, and for this year it is our Welcoming Congregation Task Force. Nominated by Karen Axe.
