"Wait and See"

By Rev. Shari Woodbury

As we emerge from the pandemic, what will “the next normal” be like?  How and how soon can we get there?  Clues may come from a Taoist farmer, a prophetic sister, and a game of ping pong. “Wait and see, wait and see what a world there can be if we share, if we care, you and me” (#146).  This service is our congregation's contribution to a summer cooperative worship series among Unitarian Universalist churches and ministers in the Midwest.

"The 8th Principle: Building a Culture of Inclusion" 

Paula Cole Jones, organizer of the 8th Principle Project

This is a joint service of First and Second Unitarian churches.  Ms. Jones realized after working with many UU congregations that a person can believe they are being a “good UU” and following the 7 Principles without thinking about or dealing with racism and other oppressions at the systemic level. Ms. Jones will show us how the 8th Principle can provide us a path to renew our commitment to antiracist work, to hold ourselves accountable, and to fulfill the potential of our existing principles.  The UU Principles were designed to be dynamic, not a fixed creed. Being dynamic allows us the opportunity to explore how the 8th Principle can help our congregation become more constructive. These concepts will be more fully developed in the 8th Principle workshop led by Ms. Jones on August 7.

"Darwin’s Mistake" 

By Rev. Rose Maldonado Schwab

As the earth blooms and blossoms around us, please join us for a service to redefine human nature, lift up our inherent goodness, and reconnect us with the interdependent web of all life.

More about the guest speaker: Rev. Rose Maldonado Schwab has been the senior minister at Shawnee Mission UU Church in Lenexa, Kansas for five years. She believes the grief and trauma don’t have the last word, and thus found great joy during the pandemic in the sacred worship art of puppeteering, caring for her own garden and chickens, and staying connected to those she loves.
