May 7 What’s Your Return Policy? Richard Pollock
This talk will examine what we can learn about a business from its return policy and how this can form our attitudes toward ourselves and others.
May 14 Is Covenant a Verb? Reverend Fayre Stephenson
A covenant is a promise. Covenants have been used to establish religious communities since Biblical times. Our Pilgrim ancestors covenanted with each other to establish their churches and today every Unitarian Universalist church is based on a covenant. On this Mother’s Day we will consider the significance of what we covenant and how we can fulfill those promises.
May 21 The Whole Loaf Reverend Philip Shearman
May 28 The Quality of Mercy Reverend Fayre Stephenson
Webster’s tells us mercy is compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm. Abraham Lincoln said, “I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.” This service will be an exploration of the quality of mercy and its place in our lives today.
