Sepulveda Unitarian Universalist Society Weekly E-News
July 16
We invite you to our Sunday service at 10:30 AM
for a special musical event with 
singer-songwriter, spiritual activist,
 Ed Munter
JOIN THE EVOLUTION:  a spiritual uprising
Ed-Munter-Headshot-soundcloud18Ed is an award-winning songwriter who has written and produced a number of stage works based on his original music.  His music offers social commentary from the perspective of the collective soul.  His songs are maps of the heart that express our common connection and reveal a vision of unity.
Here’s a preview of Ed’s message:
Freedom is a birthright but democracy has to be created, supported, and protected.  Democracy is not a spectator sport in which we pick our favorite team and watch the game from the sidelines.

America began as a promise…nothing more than a glimmer of hope in heart of humanity.

The American Dream promises freedom, liberty, and justice for all, not just for some. That promise became the basis for a grand experiment. If we can pull off this promise, we can stand as an example to all mankind.

So how’s that experiment working?
We are a nation divided by income inequality, racial discrimination, social injustice, and tribal politics.  Our destiny calls us to unite as citizens of the world.  We are being called to transcend the games of politics and embrace the New Humanism. 
We must stand up as one people and represent all humanity. We must fulfill the promise.

Here is a preview of Ed’s music:

Pastor Maggie Yenoki
Withdrawing into comfortable circles of familiar relationships is a safe response in difficult and divisive times of change. Let’s dig deep and discover new ways to be brave, face fear, and decide together to choose the rich, diverse life that comes when we Draw the Circle WIDE!

CHILDCARE is always provided during services.  Please inquire at the welcome desk and we will gladly direct you to the area for childcare.
Please join us in saying farewell and thank you to
Pastor Maggie Yenoki

Due to conflicts with several events happening in upcoming months, the Writing Group will now meet on the FIRST Sunday of the month--instead of the fourth--starting in August. (There will be no meeting in July.) We will continue this schedule at least through October.
Everyone is welcome to attend this monthly meeting for writers and non-writers. Through writing prompts and exercises we plumb our memories and imaginations to often produce the basis for memoir, poetry, stories, etc. It's fun.
Please contact Marilyn Morton at if you have questions.
Program Committee is sponsoring a series of special Dinners with a Twist! This opportunity is available for all SUUS members and Friends. Three very generous members are willing to open their homes to host dinners in July, September, and
October. potluck 3Each host is responsible for their Theme, guiding the guest’s food or wine contribution and how many guests to allow. Suggestion is 8-10 guests but it is at the Hosts discretion. Each guest will bring a contribution of food to the table. The Twist is that these dinners will discuss topics suggested by the Theme, making for  lively conversation as well as interesting and delicious food with congenial company.  

How do I reserve a spot? Glad you asked.  Call or email the host.
