Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at Burlington, Iowa
SEPTEMBER 7: INGATHERING AND WATER COMMUNION
We will kick off our new year with our annual Ingathering Service and Water Communion. Come join us and bring a story of your summer adventures, great and small, to share. Also bring some water to share during our water communion. It can be from a place you visited or from the tap at home. This will be an intergenerational service. We will also welcome a new member to our Fellowship. Rick Johnson
SEPTEMBER 14: HUMANISM IN IOWA
Dr. Paul Knupp of the Humanist Society of Iowa will speak at this morning's service. He will talk about the Humanist Society here in Iowa and its work in advancing Humanism and protecting the separation of church and state. Children's RE will be available.
SEPTEMBER 21: A CONVERSATION WITH WINNIE
Winnie Kamman, a long-time member of the Fellowship, will discuss the early history of the Fellowship and will share details about her own life and the lives of the charter members of our UU group.
SEPTEMBER 28: SHARED PURPOSE
Rev. Kent Mayfield, minister from our sister UU congregation in Dubuque, will lead the service this morning. His message will be about how diverse congregations can find shared purpose, even as the members pursue separate religious paths. Children's RE will be available.

The Bond of Union
of the Unitarian Universalists
First: Complete mental freedom, rather than bondage to creeds or confessions
Second: The unrestricted use of reason, rather than reliance upon external authority or past tradition
Third: Generous tolerance of differing religious views and usages, rather than insistence upon uniformity in doctrine or usage
