Join us for a very informal morning of discussion generated by those attending. We call it “Coffee and Conversation.” Catie Ballard will facilitate.
This morning, in my final sermon before my retirement, we will explore some of the truths we live by and their relationship to facts and to the concept of THE TRUTH.
This Sunday is an action-packed, excitement-filled, imagination-driven service that will combine our annual meeting with a workshop to provide the Board with creative ideas about our building. Our Fellowship budget for the coming year has funds set aside for deferred maintenance and capital improvements-and we need your ideas! So start thinking. What would you do in our building or on our grounds for $100; how about for $1,000; what if you could spend $10,000? We’re looking for fresh perspectives-or in religious terms inspired epiphanies, flashes of revelation, and prophetic realizations. Having paid off our mortgage and contracted with a new minister, these are heady days for our religious community-and we want you to be a part!
The Fellowship Annual Meeting will follow this shorter than usual service at 10:45 am.
This morning’s sermon will be a response to questions submitted by the congregation. The wonderful UUFL choir will gift us with song.
Note: This is a Change for Change Sunday. We will be giving collection money, unless otherwise designated, to Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
This morning we will look at Unitarian Universalism as a salvific religion — one that has the power to contribute to saving our planet and our co- inhabitants.”
Member Eric Molvar, director of Biodiversity Conservation Alliance will lead a program called “Sacred Ground: Finding Inspiration in Nature” Please come help celebrate Earth Day with this nature inspired service.
Everyone is invited to stay after the service to share a simple luncheon and meet Sarah Oglesby-Dunagen who will be our new Contract Minister starting this summer after Penny’s retirement. The Ministerial Search Committee will start the conversation with some brief comments about the mechanics of the search process within the UUA guidelines.
One of the religious possibilities of Unitarian Universalism is salvation is in this life. This morning we will consider what salvation might mean for us as UU’s.
There will be a brief Joining Ceremony in the Office following the service today.
Our guest speaker this morning is the Rev. Dr. Sally Palmer. Sally is a long time Laramie resident and former minister of the local United Church of Christ. Her sermon is titled “Saved from Losing Sight.” of it she says. “There are so many voices in our world … that we miss the voice of God.” Please come welcome Sally to our Fellowship.
Note: This is a Change for Change Sunday. We will be collecting for the Wyoming Outdoor Council. All money collected, unless otherwise designated, will go to them.
This Easter morning we will consider what experiences or states of mind keep us trapped; what it might take to escape them, and what wonders might lie outside the tombs we experience.
There will be a Child Dedication during the service on March 31. If you like to participate with your child or children in this Unitarian Universalist ceremony, please contact Rev. Rather by March 9th.
This morning we will focus on upholding the inherent worth and dignity of every person through our power as consumers, specifically by protecting the rights of workers in the food system. Workers have the right to work in a safe environment, receive fair wages, and organize with dignity. We’ll talk about ethical eating and creating a truly sustainable food system. Members of the Green Sanctuary and Social Action Committees will lead the discussion.
