This Sunday’s service: “I Got Plenty o’ Nuttin’”

Walden_Map_fromWalking_150dpiIn this sermon the Reverend Charles Wilson, a retired Northshore UU Church minister, will join the discussion between beauty and adornment, and luxury versus simplicity, solitude, and the study of sagacious minds.

We’ll listen again to Henry David Thoreau at Walden — with inspiration from Porgy. To refine the soul, Thoreau demonstrates by words and daily living a simple path to a more fulfilling life. He said, and Charles agrees, “We must balance the acquisition of accessories with the necessaries for the good of the planet, as well as our own personal wellbeing.”

The service leader is Peter VanDeBogert.

The service will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by coffee and fellowship at about 11:30. Religious education classes are offered, and visitors are always welcome.

A “car yard sale” will be held after the service. We have organized this to be a yard sale out of the trunk of your car. As you do your spring cleaning at home, pack up some of your junk in the trunk. If you sell it after the service, the proceeds can be given to the church.

This is also Food Sunday. Please bring food to the church and place it in the Food Pantry basket in the Fellowship Hall. Or you can donate via check or a grocery-store gift card.
