Things Have Changed (Sun. 22 Apr, 2018 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Rev. Lynn Harrison In the 1967 film “The Graduate,” Dustin Hoffman’s character is told that his future success can be summed up in one word: “Plastics!” A generation later, it’s clear that our convenience-based lifestyle is anything but the route to human (and planetary) well-being. When it comes to our understanding of success and prosperity, things have changed. On Earth Day Sunday this year, we’ll reflect on how (and whether or not, and in what ways) we can change…to protect life on earth and to care for our souls and spirits during this time of profound planetary change. On Sunday, First Unitarian’s Green Team will take an active role in our service, letting us know what our congregation is doing to reduce its carbon footprint and inspiring us to do more. Our choir will present Frank Ticheli’s uplifting and powerful “Earth Song,” we'll all learn a beautiful song by Carolyn McDade, and I’ll sing for you, too. It promises to be a thought provoking, inspiring and healing Sunday at First. Things have changed…and we can change, too. Come join us. Rev. Lynn View the Order of Service.

Womynspirit Course (Thu. 26 Apr, 2018 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm)

Calling the Barge – An Introduction to the Sisterhood of Avalon Join this exploration of the teachings of the Sisterhood of Avalon, a spiritual community of women (inclusively defined) on a journey to cultivate self-determination and personal sovereignty through the five-fold cycle of healing, while building relationships with five Welsh goddesses known through the tales of the Mabinogi: Rhiannon, Ceridwen, Blodeuwedd, Arianhrod, and Branwen. Centred on an exploration of the book “Avalon Within: A Sacred Journey of Myth, Mystery and Inner Wisdom” by Jhenah Telyndru, the founder of the Sisterhood of Avalon. Together we will explore the cycle of healing through the cycle of the moon and the wheel of the year, and explore the stories of each of the goddesses. Co-facilitated by Angela Lytle & Kia LaFey. The facilitators will guide sessions, and the group will function as a gathering of peers to co-explore the work. Note: You will need to borrow or purchase the book Avalon Within. It is also helpful to have a copy of The Avalonian Oracle deck to support our explorations. This six-session series will take place two Thursdays per month: March 8, March 22, April 12, April 26, May 10, May 24. Pre-registration is required as space is limited. To register, please send an email message to Angela Lytle and Kate Chung (with “Avalon Course registration” in the subject line), and with your name, email and phone number. Cost: $20 (sliding scale)
