"Flower Communion Homily - Gathering Our Pieces of Truth"

"Savoring Our Lives"

July 5, 2015 "Racism in Utica, Oneida County and Beyond."
Patrick Johnson works for the Oneida County District Attorn-ey’s Office as a Community Liaison, a position which is fully funded by the New York State Department of Criminal Justice Services. His job involves meet-ing with young people and recently released offenders and conducting racial justice seminars throughout the community.

Patrick is a Utica native and has been involved with race relations and justice groups for years. He is also the creator and director of the New Life Institute, mentoring children and adults on making positive life choices. His awareness raising presentation will add-ress the issues of racism in America and Oneida County particularly in the City of Utica. He will comment on the tragedies that have occurred in Baltimore and Ferguson and some of the dynamics that exist between Black people and White Police Officers. In addition to that he will address some of the issues that stand between blacks and whites (regardless of their professions) in America.

July 12, 2015 "American religion: Where We've Been and Where We Are"
Jay Williams will explore the state of religion in America today and how we've gotten there.

July 19, 2015 "Abiding in the 'City of Ghosts'"
Part travelogue, part quest for religious understanding, Simone Shaheen will share photos and talk about a time in the relatively recent history of Greece’s second largest city (now, almost exclusively Chris-tian) when the city was pre-dominantly Jewish and then Muslim and what happened to those populations.

July 26, 2015 Salisbury Center cluster service (NO SERVICE IN UTICA).
A Musical Celebration! The service will be followed by the usual ample and delicious potluck luncheon.
