Choosing Our Story: a Way to Gratitude
Sunday, November 25th, 2018
Rev. Karen McFarland
There are at least three major stories about how we organize life in our modern world. We get to choose which one of these three stories we want to live out. Which one represents our heart song? Which one resonates with our personal spiritual journey and our UU principles and sources? Come and learn together. Come and be together in beloved community. Come and sound your body and soul with gratitude.

Rev. Julie Brock
We all know that there are things we can't explain. In the age of science and control, human beings tend to greet the unknown with anxiety and fear. It is concurrently true that humans need to experience awe and wonder to feel fulfilled and connected. Let us try to connect with the mystery of the universe and creation as a lovely, deep, and rich experience.
