This Sunday’s service: “American Dream or Nightmare?”


Economic injustice is the theme of the service this Sunday, January 12, proposed by the Social Action Committee, which won the sermon auction last year. The Reverend Frieda Gillespie will speak on the topic “The American Dream or Nightmare?” The service will begin at 10:30 a.m.

The theme will continue after the service with a discussion hosted by the Social Action Committee of issues raised in the sermon. It will begin at 11:45 and end by 12:45. A light lunch will be provided. Please join us for an exchange of ideas about this important topic.

The collection will be donated to the Philippines Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund, an effort by the Unitarian Universalist Association and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee. Millions of people in the Philippines are still suffering from the effects of Typhoon Haiyan, which struck in mid-November. Yet news of the survivors has all but disappeared from the spotlight. The UUA and UUSC are strongly committed to long-term relief efforts.

The service will be followed by coffee and fellowship at about 11:30. Religious education classes for children and youth are offered, and visitors are always welcome.
