Sharon Lisenbee will be presenting a service on August 13th entitled " Why Come To Church If You Don't Like Coffee?" She will be reading a short essay written by William F. Schulz, past president of the UUA. "Whatever the reason we are affiliated with a congregation, be it for friendship or feasting, music or musing, to discover life's meaning or to find a new mate, the heart of that experience is the Sunday morning service of worship." Sharon has written a short essay on the subject as well and is hoping this talk will generate a lot of lively conversation on the subject.

Pat Sanders will present a service entitled "Thick and Thin" based on a sermon by Victoria Safford of the White Bear Unitarian Universalist Church. It explores the meaning and role of church - a "thick" institution that enables us to become part of something larger, to provide a lens or moral magnifying glass through which we can read the signs of the times and bring spiritual and ethical discernment to our everyday lives. And we'll also ponder whether a gaggle of wild and wooly individualists can truly be or ever hope to become a true community.

Andrea Barshevich will present a service on the topic of Sexuality and Sprituality. We are embodied beings. Unitarian Universalists understand that the body is the means by which we encounter the world. We embrace the rich experiences, joyful and uplifting, challenging, and even heart-breaking, that are connected with having a human body. We believe that what we learn and experience through our physical bodies can help us to deepen and grow in spirit.

Andrea will describe the Our Whole Lives: Sexuality Education for Adults program which explores sexuality through values and experiences. The program helps adults enhance their communication skills as they increase their understanding of healthy relationships, sexual diversity, and sexuality throughout the life cycle. It’s the sexuality education opportunity you probably never had growing up.
