“Blessing of the Animals to Celebrate Feast of St. Francis”
Join us for our annual celebration of the Feast of St. Francis as we participate in the Blessing of the Animals. Bring your (friendly) pet or teddy bear to receive a blessing on this special day, and come prepared to be inspired by music, as we will be joined by the Serendipity Choir. This is an intergenerational (all ages) service. Invite your friends and neighbors to have their animals blessed, too.
Screening of Josh Fox Film
How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change
Sunday, October 2, 12:30-3:30p
(UUFLG Doors open at Noon, Film starts promptly at 12:30p)
Visiting over 100 cities, this film asks Americans to think about the dangers of climate change. Partnering with grassroots organizers and helping lead a renewable energy revolution, Josh Fox is rallying Americans against the fossil fuel industry. The How to Let Go and Love mission is to stop the mass build out of oil and gas infrastructure and expedite the adoption of renewable energy alternatives. At the same time, we want you to think about love, community, and the goodness of humanity that climate can’t change. Director Josh Fox (Gasland) continues in his deeply personal style, investigating climate change. Traveling to 12 countries on 6 continents, the film acknowledges that it may be too late to stop some of the worst consequences and asks, what is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away?
To change our world for the better, it will take each of us celebrating and sharing our unique gifts to discover new ways to nurture our planet. As curious, spiritually independent people, our Fellowship strives to provide an open and supportive environment to explore the creativity, strength and wisdom within the diverse experiences and aspirations of each person. There is meaning and joy to discover in this type of religious community. And by working together, we help strengthen our interconnections.
Join us at a Sunday morning service at 10:30 in our Sanctuary. Our children’s spiritual development classes also begin at 10:30. We have classes for nursery, elementary and middle school ages.
