Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at Burlington, Iowa
MAY 5: BELTANE
Beltane is the Gaelic May Day festival. Most commonly it is held halfway between the spring equinox and the summer solstice. Come learn about Beltane and jump the bale fire with us! Jane Edwards and Lydia Gittings, other assorted gnomes.
MAY 12: DISCUSSION SUNDAY
Members and friends will be discussing articles from the UU World magazine and/or other topics of general interest.
MAY 19: FLOWER COMMUNION
The Unitarian tradition of Flower Communion dates to 1923 when Norbert Capek, founder of Unitarianism in Czechoslovakia, created the service to help unite congregants from various faith traditions in a celebration of the beauty of nature. Everyone is invited to bring a flower or flowers to this annual spring service. Karla Mundt.
The Annual Meeting and election of officers will follow this service.
MAY 26: AULD LANG SYNE
The end of another church year is upon us. What did we accomplish? What tasks lie before us? We will take a look at the year just past and celebrate some of our successes, then commit ourselves to the work ahead of us in the only liberal religious sanctuary in SE Iowa. Rick Johnson.
Council Meeting: 3rd Wednesday every month at 7 unless announced otherwise.
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
