"Meet the Humanists," The Rev. Christine Robinson
UUism has been profoundly affected by two heresies (Unitarianism and Universalism) and two philosophies: Transcendentalism (in the 19th century) and Humanism (in the 20th). This week, we’ll dig into humanism, touch on atheism and agnosticism, and celebrate the ways in which we are all humanists

November 16
"Meet the Transcendentalists," The Rev. Christine Robinson
Many a UU got their first hint that there might be a religion for them when they read Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau in literature classes and heard that they belonged to Unitarian churches. These powerful thinkers brought the majority of UUs from liberal Christianity into a kind of open-hearted theism which many UUs still appreciate today, and who began the tradition, still important among us, of being fearless social change agents.

Music: The Chalice Singers

November 23
"In Praise of Messy Lives" The Rev. Angela Herrera
With the holidays come images of photogenic “families” smiling with beautiful gifts and eating picture perfect food. Heaven knows the real thing is much more interesting. Bring a friend! ASL interpretation will be provided at this service. 

Music: Children's and Youth Choirs

November 30
"Our Inner Chimp and Bee" James Galasinski, Ministerial Resident
We live in an individualistic society that for the most part encourages the rugged go-it-alone type. However, our most meaningful experiences often involve surrendering and immersing ourselves into a group. Some will even give up their lives for a cause that may never directly benefit them. Our inner chimp and inner bee are constantly dueling.

Music: New Mexico Marimba Band
