"Flower Communion Homily - Gathering Our Pieces of Truth"

"Savoring Our Lives"

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! Featuring musical selections from Harp and Harmony, Mark Bunce leading the combined UU choral group, and other musical selections.

We will be having a potluck fellowship immediately following the service. Salisbury will be providing main course dishes, so please bring side dishes or desserts to share.

August 2, 2015 "The Re-Enchantment of the Future"
Rev. Randy Becker
Once the world seemed filled with mystery but the human drive to know and control created magical thinking filled with superstition and assumptions of faith. In response to the limitations of such religious approaches to knowledge, science was born, replacing faith with proof. Along the way, the mysterious in existence took second place to the known and proven. However, now may be the time when we need to rediscover the power of mystery as we face the challenges of the future: to be enchanted by life more than trying to be in control of it.

August 9, 2015 The Sunithi Bajekal Memorial Poetry Service
Our Annual Poetry Sharing service, again this year in honor and memory of Sunithi Bajekal. If you have a special poem which reminds you of Sunithi and wish to read it aloud, bring it along. However, any poem or short literary work would be welcomed. This service will be led by Kim Bywater and Jack Pendrak.

August 16, 2015  UU Board of Trustees Town Hall Meeting
Have you ever wanted to look under the hood at the engine that drives our Board of Trustees? Well, here’s your chance! This service will utilize a “town hall” format to facilitate an intimate give and take between our Trustees and our members. Loosely following a Q&A format, you are encouraged to bring your questions and observations on matters that will strengthen our church, including but not limited to Board structure, Committees form and function, corporate by laws, strategic vision, volunteer opportunities, growth of membership, etc. We expect a spirited and meaningful exchange! Fritz Barns will facilitate.
