Motherlove, Motherloss, and Death with Dignity

Sunday, May 8th, 2016—9:15 & 11:00 a.m.

The Revs. Suzelle Lynch and Joyce Palmer

The greatest human freedom is to live and die according to our own desires and beliefs. Today, we explore death with dignity—an option that allows a qualified person to legally request and obtain medications from their physician to end their life in a peaceful, humane, and dignified manner at a time and place of their choosing. We also honor Mother’s Day with its beauty and complexity. Please feel free to bring a picture of your mother(s)—or of yourself as a mother—to place on an altar at the beginning of the service. New Member Sunday is today—a time to recognize and celebrate with those who have recently joined UUCW. We also recognize all UU Wellspring participants this morning.

Our Power to Bless

Sunday, May 22nd, 2016—9:15 & 11:00 a.m.

The Revs. Suzelle Lynch and Joyce Palmer

It’s been said that all great art comes from feeling low, blue, or depressed. Perhaps this the blessing of melancholy—or is it something else? Unitarian Universalism is a notoriously optimistic faith with a high “doctrine of humanity,” due in part to our affirmation of the inherent worth and dignity of each and every person. But where does that leave us when melancholy comes our way?

Beyond Technique: The Essence of Dialogue

Sunday, May 29th, 2016—9:15 & 11:00 a.m.

Pulpit Guest: Alice Foley, Worship Coordinator: Jane Brown

In our modern culture, people are able to interact with one another in many ways: they can sing, dance, or play together with little difficulty, but their ability to talk together about subjects that matter deeply to them seems invariably to lead to dispute, division, and often to violence. This condition points to a deep pervasive defeat in the process of human thought. Today, Alice Foley will speak on resolving conflict through mediation.
