November 3 The Secret Sits by Rev. Leah Hart-Landsberg
The poet Robert Frost wrote that “the Secrets sits in the middle,” taking on a life of its own. Modern psychology agrees that secrets can be unhealthy, sometimes even dangerously harmful. Yet it’s also understandable that we want some parts of life to remain private. We will contemplate the role of our secrets, including what they give and rob us of. Stay after the service for an optional art activity!
November 10 Stories That Harm, Stories That Heal by Rev. Christina Leone-Tracy
November is a month full of stories and histories, particularly about our nation. We will explore together the ways Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and Election Day have the power both for harm and (if we allow the stories to change) also healing.
November 17 The Gift of Memory by Rev. Karon Sandberg
As we approach Thanksgiving, now is a good time to consider talking to your families about your end-of-life wishes. This annual service focuses on the beautiful, healing, and loving gift that sharing our wishes can be, if we let it. This time, we’ll explore the power of planning ahead for your memorial service. It need not be morbid! It can be a fun, and powerful experience.
November 24 Roots and Wings by Rev. Christina Leone-Tracy and Rev. Roger Bertschausen
The UU hymn “Spirit of Life” reminds us to let our “roots hold us close and wings set us free.” We’ll be celebrating one of our Fellowship’s strongest roots– Roger Bertschausen– at this celebration of his status as our emeritus minister and to honor his 26 years of service in ministry to our Fellowship. We will also be celebrating the Fellowship’s 64th birthday this month, the stories of our past, and the possible future stories that might yet be written as we let our “wings set us free.”
