August 6, 10 am: Serenity, Courage and Wisdom: Doing What We Can
UUs can draw heavily on Rienhold Niebuhr, a Christian realist philosopher of the 20th century, to better ground our activism, focus on our shortcomings, and be more realistic with our expectations. Laugh with us as we consider our common humanity and discuss ways to retain what is best of that humanity while we support courageous action.
During this service, we will also hold a “blessing of the backpacks” to bless our students on their way to the new school year. Students are encouraged to bring their backpacks.
Religious Education starts this week as well. Children are invited to begin the year by “walking the talk” — and sign the covenants for their classrooms with their feet!
