Living Consciously

Sunday, 02.5.2017
Speaker: 
The Rev. Dr. David Calhoun
Many philosophical positions tell us to be aware, to know ones’ self. The higher form of consciousness, we say, the more advanced the form of life. We judge when to end life in medical scenarios by the likelihood of regaining consciousness. What is consciousness, and how do we seek (or avoid) it? Rev. Dr. David Calhoun, the Fellowship’s Sabbatical Support minister, explores the topic of consciousness, at once our greatest blessing and our greatest burden.

Speaker: 
Shakeisha Gray, Intern Minister and William Levwood, M.Div.
A new year usually brings with it a new resolution to transform your body, whether it's eating healthier, exercising more, or just plain ol' losing weight. Ministerial Intern Shakeisha Gray, along with Fellowship member and UU Chaplain Resident William Levwood (whose first career was as a professional dancer), look at transforming ourselves and our bodies … but not in the ways you might think.

Chalica: A Principled Celebration

Sunday, 12.4.2016
Speaker: 
The Rev. Lisa R. Schwartz
Unitarian Universalists are widely curious about other religious traditions, and our interests lead us to explore many religious and spiritual celebrations of winter holidays. A decade ago UUs developed a holiday of our own: Chalica. We’ll explore how to make the principles personal, and kick off our own non-commercial celebration of service and learning! The Chalica Story on the Fellowship You Tube site can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfEq0RdZKlwgR8zCJWD-Mkg

Beyond the Veil

Sunday, 10.30.2016
Speaker: 
The Rev. Lisa R. Schwartz
The Great Beyond, the Deep Mystery, Beyond the Veil: Many evocative phrases try to describe our experience of death, and our experience of the continued presence of departed loved ones. Before Halloween became a campy, candy-filled holiday it was a season to honor the mystery of human death and commemorate those who have passed beyond the veil. Rev. Lisa explores the theme.
