Sunday Service August 3 11am: Next Time Around

At 11am, Sunday, August 3, lay leader, Bonnie Dassing, will share a reading of the sermon, Next Time Around, by Zen Buddhist UU minister Wayne Arnason.  Do you believe in life after death? Do you believe we come back in different lives? Reincarnation is part of many faiths including Hinduism and Buddhism. Are you open to exploring the possibilities?

At 10am, in our Community Conversations adult discussion program, we’ll explore the topic “Religion as Problem-Solver vs. Religion as Anachronism” . According to the Atlantic, a recent Gallup poll set up some misleading questions to gauge the current state of regard for religion. The poll reported that 57 percent of respondents said religion is the answer for basically everything, and 30 percent said it’s “old-fashioned.” We’ll look at the poll and consider the questions, and some possible answers.

Our youth program begins at 11:30, after the Story for All Ages portion of our service.  This Sunday, we’ll be looking at our 1st Principle: We believe that each and every person is important.
