Welcome

January 2015 Services
Sunday at 10:00 AM


JANUARY 4:  Rev. Dennis McCarty will share “Thoughts on Mission and Vision.” “Where there is no vision, the people perish,” runs a Biblical proverb. To the ancient Hebrews, “vision” meant following the Torah. It’s not that simple for Unitarian Universalists, but we do face similar questions. Why are we here? What makes us a church? What are we trying to do? Rev. Dennis will ponder guidelines for our religious journey together.

 


JANUARY 11:  Dr. Marian Klaes will be speaking and showing pictures of her recent trip to Nepal where she volunteered at a  Health Services Clinic.  She will discuss how it has affected her professionally and spiritually.

 

 

JANUARY 18:  We will ask, “Are Principles Better than Creeds?” We Unitarian Universalists pride ourselves in being “a religious tradition without a creed.” What does that mean, exactly? In what way are our Seven Principles different from a creed? Why are they better? Rev. Dennis McCarty will ponder the issue and seek to explain the differences.

 


JANUARY 25:   Our topic will be, “Why We Need Heresy.” Through most of Western history, heresy was one of the worst crimes a person could commit. Then again, some of the greatest thinkers in Western history have been heretics. Quite a few of them suffered the consequences. Rev. Dennis McCarty will ponder the nature of--and need for--heresy.

 

 

FEBRUARY 1:  Rev. Dennis McCarty has long wanted to preach some sermons about “Girls Who Rocked History.” Young women can change the world. Once a month (more or less), Rev. Dennis will talk about one who did. The first will be the “girl” who was the Katniss Everdeen of her day, only with a shotgun instead of a bow-and-arrow: the legendary Annie Oakley.
