February 1, 2015 "Sensuality and Spirituality"
- Professor Brent Plate, Visiting Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Hamilton College
Professor Plate takes a fresh and much-needed approach to that contentious yet vital area of human culture, religion. Beginning with the desirous, incomplete human body, he guides our focus to five ordinary types of objects—stones, incense, drums, crosses, and bread—with which we connect in our pursuit of religious meaning and fulfillment. Plate moves our understanding of religion away from the current obsessions with God, fundamentalism, and science—and toward the rich depths of this world, this body, thesethings. Religion, it turns out, has as much to do with our bodies as our beliefs. Maybe more.
February 8, 2015 "Taking Risks, Keeping Faith" Rev. Eve Stevens
This service will explore how our liberal religious tradition has faced oppression and injustice over the centuries. Rev. Eve will draw from the wisdom of Unitarian Universalist theologians who tell us not to despair in the face of impossible odds.
February 15, 2015 "Communal Soul Searching" Rev. Eve Stevens
Rev. Eve will discuss what church means in a modern world. Who are we? What can we offer to those who join their lives with our congregation? What sort of presence will we be in our greater community?
February 22, 2015 "The Generous Spirit" Rev. Eve Stevens
Rev. Eve will examine what it looks like to be generous in the midst of so many competing demands. We are surrounded by trauma and suffering on the global and local level, personal stress and information overload. How do we face it all and still give and act generously to the world around us?
