Sunday Services

January 7th
“Intention”
Rev. Elwood Sturtevant
Katie Covey reports “Here’s what I discovered. Intention is different from setting goals or resolutions in that it “pulls us into” who we truly are. Goals and resolutions “push us out” into future possibilities. To set intentions, we listen to our inner voice which tells us who we truly are.” I’ll explore “intention” and we’ll observe our annual frying pan communion as well. – ERS

January 14th
“The Movement”
Rev. Elwood Sturtevant
On the Sunday of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day weekend, I want to look at Dr. King’s movement, and at our UU part in it, both back then and now. And my title has to fit on the front sign. – ERS

January 21st
“Religious Freedom”
Rev. Elwood Sturtevant
This year, UUs around the world are celebrating religious freedom and remembering the Diet of Torda’s 450th anniversary. I’ll look at history (Torda and Thomas Jefferson, too) and some of the arguments involving religious freedom today. – ERS

January 28th
“IN TENSIONS”
Rev. John Hull
Minister of Faith Development Beargrass Christian Church
In recent years, American society has debated the public role of the Ten Commandments. Some advocate a public role, claiming they are the foundation for American law. Others regard them as best confined to religious communities. Obvious questions arise. If the commandments are important to a broader culture, why? Out of the hundreds of commandments in the Bible, why these ten? What do they have to do with law? Are they still relevant to American society?
