~ Rev. Leonetta Bugleisi ~
This Sunday, October 4, The Rev. Leonetta will offer some spiritual perspective on the culture of addiction in our times. From the casual proclamation of "I'm addicted to chocolate" to the more serious addictions that turn our daily lives into turmoil, we will hear some approaches that will offer new insights and balance to this topic.
October 11: Song Sunday
~ Glen Thomas Rideout AAUU Music Director ~
With the inspiring personal story and inspirational message by Glen Thomas Rideout, and the participation of singers from the Saturday CUUB Sings workshop, this service will be all about the importance of singing.
October 18: Day of the Dead
~ Beth Havlik ~
This will be our monthly multigenerational service. These services are meant to bring us together as a whole congregation to worship as a tribal family. The theme of this service is "Los Dias de los Muertos" or The Day of the Dead. The purpose is to show that death (not only physical death, but significant change) can bring about opportunity for growth as well as fear.
Though we often try to cope with our fears by adopting a persona (a mask) that helps us imagine ourselves as stronger or more able, these masks can also keep us from seeing what we need to see and growing in the way we need to grow. The premise is the celebration of Los Dias de los Muertos, like the customs of Halloween, evolved with the influences of the Celtics, the Romans, and the Christian holy days of All Saints Day and All Souls Day, but with added influences from the Aztec people of Mexico.
This Sunday we will see the children and youth perform a play as we celebrate the lives of the people we have lost, but have not forgotten. We ask you to bring in a picture of a loved one that you would like to remember during this service. This service has been designed to appeal to all ages and we have been very thoughtful in our planning to ensure it is not scary to our young ones. We hope you can join us for this celebration!

November 1: Why Am I Here? The Magic of Ministry
~ Rev. Leonetta Bugleisi ~
Being called and then serving as a Unitarian Universalist minister for 25 years, The Rev. Leonetta will invite us into a look at the specific and broad definition of ministry. This is a "not-to-miss" service that will reveal the path that our 1/4 time minister has followed for 1/4 of a century that will invite us into a full and passionate personal reflection.
