What To Do When Things Aren't Going Well

With all that's going on in the world these days, it is possible to respond from love rather than
anger. Compassion for those we disagree with can bring about happiness and positive results.
Prescott is founder of Contemplative Caregiving. For background information visit www.wisecaregiving.org

Celebrants: Matt & Anneliese Sherman

11th: Rev. Kurt Schwalbe
Your Cheatin’ Heart: Hank Williams

Hank Williams wrote and performed many songs during his short life which touched and inspired people. Although he drank too much, struggled with opiate addiction and lived too hard, his songs made him beloved to his own generation and still resonate today, inspiring countless songwriters and performers. We will sing some of his songs which reflect UU values and see how these values resonate in lesser known parts of his life. Dust off your cowboy hat and polish up your boots.

Celebrant: Judy Hamilton
Souper Sunday

18th: Rev. Vincent Lachina
Bobby McFerrin Was Right

When Bobby McFerrin's hit song "Don't Worry, Be Happy” became a #1 hit in 1988, it resonated around the world. It was a pivotal year in American politics. Pan Am Flight 103 exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland, Armenia experienced two massive earthquakes, and Prozac was introduced as an antidepressant. And he says: "don't worry?" Let's take a step back today from our current worrying, and look at the brighter side of life.

Celebrant: Rosemary Stevens

25th: Rev. Barbara Davenport
The Spiritual Practice of Gardening

How can we become better gardeners of the soul? Gardening, like soul work, doesn’t have to be done in a certain way or prescribed order to make it work. All you need is dirt, water, light and an intention to spend time with it. As I dig into the soil, I become more mindful of my connection to the earth and all life. As the saying goes, “We’re closest to God in the garden.” We’ll explore the mystery and miracle of gardening as the soul’s work.
