Sunday, October 7 - Margaret Wozniak, Coordinator
10:30 Service:  “Religious Freedom at the Time of the Founding Fathers”
Imagine the religious atmosphere in the colonies prior to the Revolution, then learn how the Founding Fathers overcame that atmosphere with the help of reason and science coming from the Enlightenment.  We will concentrate on Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson and hear their voices.

 
Sunday, October 14 - Hal Gurian, Coordinator
10:30 Service:  “Two Ways of Listening:  Civil Discourse”
In our current political scene, name-calling and extreme partisanship are shaping our culture.  It wasn’t always like this.  How can we, as Unitarians, set an example of civil communication?

10:30 Service:  “Grassroots Action – The Faith of One Michigan Citizen”
All Congregation Service

Thanks to the faith of our Founding Fathers, we live in a nation of long-standing democracy.  However, many are frustrated by its current form and neglect to vote.  Cari Noga, a member of Voters, Not Politicians, will share her story of re-engagement as we approach Election Day.  Also appearing will be Abraham Lincoln and Barack Obama, stressing UU’s second source, words and deeds of prophetic women and men.

 

Sunday, October 28 - Kat Norman, Coordinator
10:30 Service:  “Samhain – Honoring Our Ancestors”

This is our annual service when we remember our ancestors of the blood, of the heart, and of the spirit – honoring the lives of those who have touched us.  Members of all ages are invited to bring a photo or memento of those who have gone before us to help co-create our setting.
