Sunday Service Previews
October 11, 2015:
10:00 am - Worship Service: "Keep On, Strong Heart" -- Moral Power in the Climate Fight“ Dr. Kathleen Dean Moore / Climate Action Ministry
Our guest speaker will be Kathleen Dean Moore, who was a featured speaker at the UU General Assembly this past June. Dr. Moore is a writer, moral philosopher, and climate activist, who is devoted to an unrelenting defense of the future against those who would pillage and wreck the planet. Her growing alarm at the devastation of the natural world led her to focus her writing on the moral urgency of action against climate change and habitat destruction.
11:30 am - Reflection and Action Hour: “Discussion of Moral Power in the Climate Fight” with Kathleen Dean Moore
After the worship service the congregation is invited to reconvene in the Sanctuary for coffee and discussion with Dr. Moore relating to her sermon.
Bio: Dr. Moore comes to us from Corvallis Oregon where she has been Distinguished Professor of Philosophy (Emeritus) and co-founder and Senior Fellow of the Spring Creek Project for Ideas, Nature, and the Written Word. She is the author of Great Tide Rising: Toward Clarity and Moral Courage in a Time of Planetary Change. She co-edited the book Moral Ground: Ethical Action for a Planet in Peril, which gathers testimony from the world's moral leaders about our obligation to the future.

We have registration forms ready to go for families who want to register their children and youth; and for the first time, we have forms for those of you without children or youth currently in the RE program who will be volunteering as a teacher, substitute or assistant. If you would like to be a part of any of our programs this year, please fill out this form and let us know your availability and in what way you would like to be involved.
The fall program is Tapestry of Faith “Gather the Spirit,” a curriculum focused on the stewardship of water. The activities include understanding different kinds of ecosystems and how to advocate for the protection of water. The program affirms our seventh principle of the interdependent web of life. We convey the message to our children that they have moral agency and the ability to do their part as Unitarian Universalists to help protect our recourses.
