UPCOMING WORSHIP SERVICE

Sunday, April 26, 9:00 and 11:00am
“Preaching to Diversity”

Each year a sermon topic is “auctioned off” in the annual fundraiser. This year, John Tobin asks how can any Unitarian Universalist minister can possibly touch all the viewpoints and belief systems represented in our congregations, not to mention various learning styles and proclivities. It’s a good question! Rev. Bret Lortie speaking.

HIGHLIGHTS THIS SUNDAY

“Dividing Ukraine: A Patient Approach to Diplomacy”

In 1954 Russia ceded control over the Crimean Peninsula to Ukraine. Sixty years later, its relationship with Ukraine was coming undone, so Russia took it back. Post- Cold War disintegration has been the broad pattern for the Russian Federation as Eastern Bloc states sought stronger economic ties with the West and military security within NATO. In this session, we’ll discuss the strengths and weaknesses of a strategy of “biding one’s time” and letting self-determination, rather than direct military confrontation determine the outcome. Discussion leader: Larry Jordan

UCE Cancer Care Group Continues This Sunday April 26

Please join us this Sunday at 9:30am in comfortable, private Room 2.
Our “regulars” keep coming back to talk and listen; learn and teach. Most are on familiar terms with cancer: they have had it, are in treatment now, or have experienced cancer with a loved one.

While our core group continues to sustain our meetings, I deliberately cast a wider net. You may be a widow or widower, a dear friend, a care giver, a UCE member with a sincere interest in learning more about how cancer affects our lives. Even if cancer is not directly affecting your life today, you too may well have important thoughts to share, or questions to ask. This group is both open and confidential. Come with a caring heart. We keep the stories in the room.

41% of Americans will have cancer sometime in their lifetime. Over 60% will experience it through family connections.

Questions, comments, or topic suggestions: please email Chris Isely at chris.isely@comcast.net
