Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at Burlington, Iowa
AUGUST 3: NATIVE AMERICAN SPIRITUALITY
Wyatt Fecht, a 2014 graduate of Illini-West HS, will share a program regarding his journey in the Native American spiritual path.
AUGUST 10: UU'S AND THEISM
This Sunday we will take some time to explore how UU's are (or are not) successfully creating communities where both theists and non-theists can find a home. We will take a look at some of the critiques of efforts to incorporate more theistic viewpoints into UU services, as well as explore responses to those critiques. We will use documents as a springboard for our exploration. Please take time to read and reflect on them prior to this morning's service. The list of documents can be found at http://tinyurl.com/p842y82. Rick Johnson
AUGUST 17: INTERNET GHETTOS
With the continued surge in social media connecting us with more and more people, are we truly becoming a more connected society? Or are we becoming less interconnected and more inclined to live in "Internet ghettos" where we only encounter like-mined individuals. Rick Johnson
AUGUST 24: UU MINISTRY TO THE MILITARY
Debby Morris and Suzanne Krall from Circle Sanctuary will present a program regarding their work in ministry to members of our military, both active duty and veterans.They will talk about, among other things, Circle Sanctuary's role in the VA's decision to authorize various Pagan religious symbols for use on military headstones for deceased veterans. They will close the morning with a bit of humor as they lead the celebration of a "redneck ritchul."
AUGUST 31: TBA
Council Meeting: 3rd Wednesday of every month at 7 PM unless announced otherwise.
