March 24th — Our culture breeds addiction, and far too often, the responses to social problems actually make them worse. We are all affected by addiction in some way: either in our own habit energies, or the heartbreak of a loved one, friend, colleague. Our highest aspirations in Unitarian Universalist congregations is to build the connection that heals, the connection that is real, that goes beyond the surface. Join us to explore your own heart, and hear about an exciting new Unitarian Universalist response to self-destructive habits.
Our guest minister is Rev. Ruth Rinehart whose ministry is focused on building beloved community for long-term healing and recovery from addictions. Founder of the emerging intentional community, JUUST Living, Rev. Ruth believes in the healing nature of connection, person to person, real-time, face-to-face. Rev. Karen will serve as Worship Associate.
March 31st — Rev. Karen said at the end of last year that this year would bring play into our congregational life. This service, a day before April Fool’s, will be a chance to be playful together, while also experiencing opportunities for reflection, connection, and singing. This is an all ages service.
