Speaker: Dave Dunn

Process Theology in Plurality

Process theology re-conceptualizes “God” away from being a pre-existent being, personality or entity, and toward the idea of God as an ongoing creative, evolutionary power or force.

Process Naturalism does much the same without the concept of God. 

In addition, might these offer new perspectives on the nature of reality?

Parables and Portraits

Come experience the wisdom and humor of several stories from the book “Parables and Portraits” by Stephen Mitchell. Come, let us tell you a story.

Flower Communion

The Flower Communion, created in 1923 by Unitarian minister Norbert Capek of Prague, Czechoslovakia, is an annual ritual that celebrates peace, beauty, human uniqueness, diversity, and community. Please bring a few flowers to share.

This will be a LIVE online service via Zoom.

Invisible Trans

The Transgender Day of Visibility is on March 31. Why is such a day necessary?

The Tao of Yogi Berra

“When you come to a fork in the road, take it.” Have never wiser words been spoken? Yogi Berra is perhaps baseball’s greatest sage, yet his wisdom transcended baseball and permeated the essence of reality itself.

Might he have been Taoism’s most recent prophet?

It’s a Wonderful Church

In the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” the angel Clarence tries to “earn his wings” by showing George Bailey, the character played by Jimmy Stewart, what the world would look like had he not been born. What might the world look like without UUMAN?

Sociodicy: The Goodness of Who We Are

Channeling Theodore Parker, sociologist Nicholas Christakis says, “The arc of our evolutionary history is long, but it bends towards goodness.” Might this be true? How could that possibly be?

The Implications of our 7th Principle

Our 7th Principle: Respect for the Interdependent Web of All Existence of Which We are a Part. For us to respect this interdependent web we must first believe in it. Do we? What are the implications?

Do We Want to Grow?

We seem to circle back to this question time and time again…year after year. I’d like to approach this question from a direction in which you might not be accustomed.

Free and Clear?

We all want things “free and clear”…free from encumbrances, ties and restrictions. When we reflect upon who we are, what we possess, what we have, how much of that do we view as free and clear?
