  • Jan 23 - Rev. Mary Doane and Sylvia Foster For Compassion and Resilience, Follow the Trees 

How can we build resilience into our lives? What can nature teach us about compassion and kindness toward one another? We'll seek nature's guidance and consider the role that community-building plays in helping us adapt and thrive in the midst of a changing planet.

 

  • Jan 30 - Dennis Perkins - Stewards of 危机 (Hard Choices)

This Chinese character is used to describe moments in history--personal, local, national and global--where there is both great danger and important choice.  We are stewards of our principles and our principles are guides to behavior during just such moments. 

 

Even though our services are online, we gratefully accept Offerings, which can be made by mailing a check to PO Box 435, Waterville, ME 04903-0435 or by using the "Donate" button found on this page.  (FYI, with the "Donate" button, 2.9% of your contribution goes to PayPal.)  Thank you!

Our faith is rooted in The Seven UU Principles.
