PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS THE LAST SERVICE FOR THE SUMMER. SERVICES WILL RESUME ON SEPTEMBER 7! STAY TUNED!!


9:30 a.m. Discussion Group


The Discussion at 9:30 will be on planning for any events we would like to schedule over the summer.  Brad Kalita would like us to come up and picnic, view his retreat there (on the Sprague River east of Chiloquin), and chat with him about how/if the UUs could make use of it.  We need to set a date for that and see how many folks would like to go.   We can talk about any additional social or other events we might like to hold this summer.  Bring your calendars!

10:30 a.m. Worship Service

The “service” will be a poetry “slam”; please bring a poem that you love and would like to read (or have read).  Don’t choose too long a poem, but if yours is really short, you can read two! You might consider something that reflects summer, nature, relaxing, reflecting and the like.  Chuck Wells will be the service leader.
 
Does anyone have an idea about a poem or two that would be good for the Time with the Children?  If anyone would like to volunteer to handle that, please let Chuck know.

No discussion topic available at this time.
10:30 a.m. Worship Service
Visiting the UU Purposes and Principles, this Sunday is dedicated to ‘the open search for truth and meaning’.  Rev. Patt Herdklotz revisits the gospel according to John which says to “Know the Truth and the Truth will set you free.”  Herdklotz goes on to explore the difficulty of ascertaining Truth, the humble journey with relative Truth, the call to ‘meet the asking years’ with works that demonstrate a Living Faith built on Truth, caution around folklore and shams that would be shamans.  The Youth Class will also explore this hallmark of Unitarian Universalist value.

This Sunday at the UU Fellowship

Rev. Stephen Ames will preach on Emerson’s sermon, “Fate,” which challenges us to see the value and even beauty of limitations, in the world and in ourselves.
