September 6 - Prophets: The Calling Out of InjusticeMargo Rinehart will be leading you on a micro-second tour through the history of 8th century BCE prophets and then up to our current UU demand for speaking out about injustice. While prophets did give oracles about the future, their primary job was to protect the rights of the poor and oppressed. Are you a modern day prophet? Come and find out. Special music by Ben Rinehart singing a South American mining protest song.
September 13 - Ingathering: The Communion of WaterAfter our summer adventures of travel and hosting family, we return to Sunday worship and back to school! Ingathering is a time of ministering to one another by showing our joy in returning together. Please bring a few ounces of water that symbolizes what water has meant to you this summer. It can be from a special creek, a swimming pool, your garden hose, or even KUUF. We will then hold a special ritual for the collective worth of our water of the many sources. This service is especially appropriate and participatory for children. Led by Margo Rinehart and Heather Southard.
September 20 - Fishing With JohnTaking risks is always...well, risky. But as Rabindranath Tagoree wrote, "You can't cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water." Claire Favro, with assistance from Hank Payne, recounts her own journey into crisis, community, and the healing power of music which led her to Hank and the new life they are creating together. Hank and Claire come to us from Poulsbo, where they live with two cats, guitars, dulcimers, bowed psaltery, and a great deal of music-making, some of which they will share with us during the service. Through words and songs, they invite us to reflect upon the risks we have taken that opened possibilities, and the risks and possibilities that are still to come. http://hanknclaire.com/ http://hanknclaire.com/
