Sunday, June 2:  A Theological Look at the Proposed New Article II: Values Underpinning Action

Rev. Bill Zelazny

Later this month delegates to the UUA General Assembly will vote on making a significant change in the wording and emphasis of our Bylaws Article II, Purposes and Principles.  Last year, just before the first vote on the proposed new bylaw wording, Bill gave an overview of the proposed new article and how the seven principles are incorporated into the value statement. This sermon is a digging deeper into the theology underlying the values that give a foundation to the action we affirm and promote – inherent worth and dignity, justice for all, acceptance of one another, encouragement of spiritual growth, responsible search for truth, recognizing the interdependent web of existence – and the underlying theology of each statement.

Sunday, June 9: Living a Rhythm of Life

Rev. Bill Zelazny

 “Rhythm of Life” is a modern take on early monastic communities’ “rules of life” which helped them live out their values. These communities had a structure or rhythm for their lives that helped them find a wholeness..  This rhythm was a framework of practices, experiences, relationships, and patterns that keep them growing on a healthy trajectory. It gave them an emotional tingle so to speak. Bill will explore this notion of having a rhythm to one’s life for emotional and spiritual growth.  regardless of age.

Helping Bill present this idea of having a rhythm or rule for living will be our choir, expanded with several guest singers and a special guest performer.

The 2nd Sunday of the month is our nonperishable foods collection for local food banks.


Sunday, June 16: Timeless and Universally Applicable Principles of Fathering

Rev. Bill Zelazny
