Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at Burlington, Iowa
NOVEMBER 2: Freedom of Religion
This service will focus on freedom of religion. With much of the public dialogue on religious freedom today being driven by social and religious conservatives, many issues regarding other faiths are being drowned out. Humanists and Pagans have much in common regarding this issue, as battles over opening prayers and tax exemptions have demonstrated. Perhaps it is time for these diverse groups to come together and address their common interests? Children's religious education will be provided during the service. Rick Johnson
NOVEMBER 9: TBA
NOVEMBER 16: Random Acts of Kindness
Today our congregation will begin a celebration of the holiday season by emphasizing the gift of generosity. Our program this morning will encourage the congregation to engage in random acts of generosity during the coming weeks. Later we will gather again and share what we have done and, more importantly, how it has changed us. Children are welcome to participate in this celebration. Rick Johnson
NOVEMBER 23: Gratitude
Kathy Bowman of the Quad Cities Unitarian-Universalist Congregation will lead our service this morning as we celebrate the Thanksgiving season. Children's religious education will be provided during the service.
NOVEMBER 30: TBA
Council Meeting: 3rd Wednesday of every month at 7 PM unless announced otherwise.
