Transcendentalism

Rev. Hannah Petrie
Barrie Hafler, Sunday Service Associate
 
Tracing the roots of our UU faith and values entwines us with the Transcendentalist philosophical movement of the 19th century and a belief system worthy of examination today.

SHARE THE PLATE

share the plateOur Share the Plate recipient organization for August 26th, is the National Alliance on Mental Illness, or NAMI. It is the nation’s largest mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.
It was started in 1979 by a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table. It has blossomed into the nation’s leading voice on mental health. Today it is an association of hundreds of local affiliates, state organizations and volunteers who educate, advocate, and lead with public awareness events.

UntitledCONSTRUCTIVE THEOLOGY and CREATIVE EXPRESSION – Saturday, Sept. 29
Pastor AJ will be leading this 10 week workshop rooted in the intersection of theology and art.  Participants will have an opportunity to explore, reflect, and express on their personal theology. We will be using a variety of media sources as examples of how theology is expressed all around us, every day.
 
Ideas for creative projects include painting, cooking, sewing, wood working, singing, writing, etc. All ideas are welcome!  Participants will need access to Netflix, Redbox or other movie provider. If participants do not have access to a service such as these, they will be encouraged to watch movies together.  The workshop will conclude with an "art" show by the participants to be presented on January 13, 2019.
 
Requested Donation: $10 to cover supplies. (Please note no one will be turned away for financial reasons.)  You can sign-up on Facebook through this link: https://www.facebook.com/events/453282751782645/
