Labor Day Challenge

Sunday Service August 31: Labor Day Challenge

Labor Day has many meanings in the American culture, from BBQs to back to school specials. And yet, the Labor Movement was foundational in creating the world in which we live, and many Unitarians and Universalists were active in this movement. How relevant is the Labor Movement for us today, and how does that affect us as Unitarian Universalists? Rev. Christiane will explore ways to find wisdom from time past and inspiration for the days to come for this holiday weekend.

The Gospel According to Archy and Mehitabel

Sunday Service August 10: The Gospel According to Archy and Mehitabel: Part One

“It’s surprising what you can learn from a cockroach and an alley cat.” Archy is the cockroach, and Mehitabel is the alley cat. They were the creation of Don Marquis, a columnist for a New York newspaper. Archy used to be a human: specifically, a free verse poet. When he died his soul transmigrated into the body of a cockroach. Mehitabel is his sort-of friend and part-time foil who claims to have once been Cleopatra, though there are grounds for doubt about that. For about twenty years, until the mid-30s, Archy (via Marquis) wrote about Mehitabel, himself, and others in pieces that mocked human foolishness but also promoted a charitable spirit. I think it’s time for Archy to be reincarnated again and for Mehitabel to use another one of her lives, so that we in the present age can hear their voices for ourselves.
