Sunday Mornings-Coffee at 11:00, Service at 11:30
Sunday, April 30th ~ 11:30 am When we think of the poetry of Robert Frost, we get images of stone fences, snowy fields and lonely farm houses. So it is a bit of a shock to discovery that Robert Frost, the snow-capped Bard of New England, was actually born in San Francisco. In fact, the first decade of his life was lived there, so the first landscape imprinted on his imagination was western and urban. But as Robert Penn Warren once pointed out, it sometimes takes a writer from the outside to see things new and fresh. The New England of Robert Frost has a central place in American literature and he could be called our first celebrity poet, reading at Presidential inaugurals and creating the concept of the Poet-in-Residence at universities. The program will look at his life and poetry and how he was able to lodge a few poems, as he once put it, where they would be "hard to get rid of.” Come hear more interesting stories about the life and poetry of Robert Frost, this Sunday, May 30!

Sunday, May 7 ~ 11:30am Regular service with Rev. Jean Wahlstrom, The Seventh Generation Native American wisdom teaches us to consider how our actions and decisions will impact "the Seventh Generation". What do we learn about our world and ourselves by looking seven generations forward or backward from the present? Is it coincidence that our 7th UU principle calls us to respect the Web of all existence? Music- Lynne Walker
Sunday, May 14 ~ 11:30am
Regular service with Dan Tinen,"What We Leave Behind",
In our society, each of us is surrounded by material possessions. Do we own them, or do they own us? Are they a blessing or a weight? Many spiritual advisors through the ages have recommended detaching ourselves from our "stuff", yet our things also carry stories and memories that we treasure. How can we balance these conflicting pulls and have a healthy relationship with what we leave behind? Dan Tinen will focus on this personal issue on our service on Sunday,music- Lynne Walker
Sunday, May 21 ~ 11:30am
Rev. Steve Wilson 11:30 am The Field: The Quest for the secret force in the Universe. The pursuit of truth has led us to a profound confusion that we were right. We do live in an interconnected web of all creation. However, using the work by Lynne McTaggart we discover that we not only share the planet with plants and animals, we literally are and live not only live in a sea of energy, but that we really truly are a part of it. Again, from the perspective of a detective agency we look at life from both a bigger and smaller scope.
