February 3: Trust in Troubled Times

10 AM with Guest Speaker Judy Anne Williams

Our guest speaker for February 3 is Judy Anne Williams a member of the Quaker Society of Friends in Hanover.  She will explore with us the question of whether we can trust when we are surrounded by injustice and suffering. Judy will offer her thoughts on some different ways of considering this dilemma.   Her remarks will offer her perspective on Quaker values and theology and give us an opportunity to expand our spiritual horizon and better acquaint ourselves the Society of Friends.

February Theme: Trust

What does it mean to be a  people of trust? February’s theme gives us many opportunities to explore ways in which trust plays a part in our spiritual lives. What is it we put our trust in? And can we trust life and its flow even when everything is falling apart?

January 27: Another World Is Possible: The Legacy of MLK

10 AM with Rev. Jan Hutslar

January Theme: Possibility

“So many things are possible just as long as you don’t know they’re impossible.”
Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth

What does it mean to be people of Possibility?

As Unitarian Universalists possibility is most central to our faith. When many were preaching that this world was fallen, and people should look instead to the hope of an afterlife, we found ourselves falling in love with the possibility of heaven on earth.

As individuals, can we show up with our minds and hearts open to the possibilities of both stability and change? Both comfort and challenge? And what is possible as a community which is greater than the sum of our parts?

Can we examine what we thought was impossible?

December 23: The Darkest Evening of the Year

10 AM with Rev. Jan Hutslar

December Theme: Mystery

December seems like a perfect month to explore the theme of mystery. There is something magical about the beginning of winter, the snow and the sparkles, the darkness calling us to explore our own inner world of mystery and wonder.
We are a curious and questioning people and this theme gives us an opportunity to give in to the unknown, to surrender to the mystical realms of our world.
