It’s a Man’s World: The Spiritual Influence of Patriarchy on the Border

Sunday Service November 16: It’s a Man’s World:  The Spiritual Influence of Patriarchy on the Border
Through an exploration of patriarchy and religion, we can see how the mindset for border and immigration enforcement is linked to a centuries-long system that oppresses and invalidates the experiences of women. This different point of view on immigration calls us towards a path that looks at intersecting oppressions when talking about justice for immigrants.

Questions Sermon

Sunday Service November 9:  Question Sunday   – Rev. Christiane Heyde

A few months ago, Rev. Christiane opened up the sermon time for on the spot question she was willing to answer from the pulpit.  The response was very positive, and after many requests, Christiane is once again asking for your questions about Unitarian Universalism, life, or anything that may be appropriate or relevant to address in a sermon.  If she receives one question in advance, she can begin her sermon, while other questions are being submitted and then pulled out of the hat.

Fullness from Emptiness:  Feeding Millions from an Empty Bowl.

Barry Midgorden will talk about the Empty Bowls Project. From its humble beginnings almost 25 years ago, this project has focused on feeding people locally, while increasing the awareness of hunger and food insecurity globally. The empty bowl that inspired a world wide movement provides a metaphor for creating our own lives and a concrete vehicle to help others in our own community. From emptiness comes a form and function through which compassionate caring may feed and heal.
