This Sunday at the UU Fellowship

Discussion Group, 9:45 a.m.
Ms. Mika Cottier will lead this week’s discussion. The topic is as follows:

Alex Holt, our visiting minister last week, mentioned that to become awakened or develop a collective consciousness, we will need to accept all beings or develop compassion and love for all beings. If we accept this and are striving towards awakening which beings would you have most difficulty accepting? 

Are there beings you would exclude from a collective consciousness?  Are there any beings 
which you do not have compassion and love for?    Examples may include: rats, spiders, snakes, dandelions, rabbit brush, etc.  Or it could be a group of beings with common backgrounds such as, addicts, prisoners, abusive people, etc. What is the first step one could take to develop compassion and love for these beings?

Worship Service, 10:30 a.m.

Rev. Stephen Ames will lead a service that focuses on our individual and collective commitment to the Fellowship. There will be opportunity to reflect on what you find meaningful about your involvement with the UUFKC, and what you might bring to the Fellowship to enrich and build on it as well. This will be a lively and participatory service!

Potluck lunch to follow! Bring something to share if you wish.

Rev. Ames afternoon workshop, 12:15 p.m.

We will continue working with those interested in planning and developing 4th Sunday services. Typically, these are services that we do not engage outside ministers or community speakers for, usually relying on Fellowship members. If you wish to become involved in this effort, please plan to stay after lunch and hang out with us.

A small change of plans this weekend, February 10, at the UU Fellowship…

Our scheduled community speaker, Lynn Schonchin, has fallen to the evil virus that is haunting Klamath Falls, and cannot make it on Sunday. So, in his stead we will enjoy a joint “This I Believe” presentation delivered by Phil Studenberg and Jody Daniels.
Pre-Service Discussion:

What kinds of social change have we, as individuals, been involved in trying to bring about? In other words, what causes are closest to our hearts and what have we done to advance them? What more needs to be done? What kinds of involvement seem to be the most effective? Are there other causes which you’ve been wanting to involve yourselves with or involve yourself with more fully? What are they and what would you like to do?

Also, add this to your Feb. Newsletter:

The topic of Rev. Alex Holt’s service, on Feb. 24th will be

“The God Problem: Spiritual Evolution and Unitarian Universalism”

Scott Wagner will lead the discussion this week. The discussion will be based on a blog from a mother in Texas who is “raising her children without God”. Please look over the attachment included, which is the actual blog. This should provide much for a spirited conversation!

UU DISCUSSION GROUP
Mr. Lee Lawson will lead the discussion this Sunday. He asks to consider this quote of Buddha’s:
“In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create
distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.”
He asks us to consider how this is seen by people in their daily lives.
SERVICE

Please join us this Sunday for an enlightening service with Rev. Stephen Ames. He will be discussing Jesus’ radical nonviolence teachings in a sermon titled, “The Second Mile (Love Your Enemies)”.

A potluck lunch follows, with the concluding segment of Rev. Ames’ workshop on worship associates training afterwards.

We will have a little ritual for both…
