Sunday, August 1: Do We Grow Up to Become Our Parents? - Christel Kesler. This message addresses themes of social mobility and social equality from the perspective of the lessons that parents pass along to their children. How can these lessons both promote and impede equality? How can better understanding these intergenerational messages help UUs live out our second principle and work toward justice, equity, and compassion in human relations?
Sunday, August 8: Taking Shifts for the Revolution - Rev. Jon (Bucky) Rogers of Atlanta, Georgia. As we contemplate both the importance and the limitations of electoral work, this service will examine its spiritual and organizing lessons, including how to embody Rev. Ashley Horan's call to "take shifts for the revolution."
Sunday, August 15: Rev. Duncan of Abundant LUUV UU Church, Atlanta, Georgia.
Sunday, August 22: Searching Among Stones (a Faith Rocket message) - Kris Carlson. Science can put us in touch with spiritual mysteries, as one man found out when he handled the stone from a dinosaur’s stomach.
Sunday, August 29: A UU View of Miracles (a Faith Rocket message) - Bill Lee.
