March 5 How I Learned Not to Trust My Feelings by David Dodd
We’ve all heard that it’s important to trust our feelings if we want to live a fulfilling life. But what if we have a mental illness that interferes with our moods, such as major depression? David Dodd will describe the time he took the risk of living without the anti-depressants that manage his major depressive disorder, and what he learned about living with strong emotions that he could not trust.
March 12 Changing Our Story with the Stewardship Team
For many years, the story of the Fellowship’s life has been “we do well with what we have.” As the Fellowship enters another chapter of its life, we (Fellowship members) need to change that story to one where we have the resources to fully embrace our mission. This multigenerational service will be led by members of the Fellowship as they identify the ways in which the story we have told ourselves about the Fellowship needs to change; as a new, and exciting one begins to emerge.

There’s no denying that we live in a time of great change, and many have said they felt “at sea.” How do you navigate your way through conflicting narratives, alternative facts and the many pulls and demands of life in such a way that reflects what one poet calls “our true, original course?”
March 26 Risking Sanctuary by Rev. Kathleen Rolenz

Many in our greater community live in fear of deportation and are looking for safe harbor at churches and congregations who are willing to support them. What are the moral issues around immigration – and do those moral issues call us, as a congregation, to provide sanctuary?
April 2 Born This Way, Again by Rev. Kathleen Rolenz
The theme for the month of April is “Born Again,” which too often is narrowly defined to mean one thing. However, Unitarian Universalists like to say that “revelation is not sealed” and therefore, can be said to be born again…and again..and again! With some help from Lady Gaga, Natalie Maines and Dee And the Pleasers, we’ll dig into what meaning this has for our faith and our Fellowship.
