Please note that both services will be held indoors (with patio seating always an option) due to the chilly temperatures expected
Friday was the 100th anniversary of the birth of Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. He was a veteran of World War II, a chemist, and the honorary president of the American Humanist Association, as well as a novelist who started late but made a considerable impact. Through more than 25 books, he was acerbic but not cynical. He was clear-eyed about the tragedies we suffer and inflict, but held out a more hopeful vision of what humanity can become. He was as wide-ranging as a Universalist in the sources of his insight. In short, he modeled a mature, modern spirituality that we and our world need.
We will hear from our justice partner, SURJ, about the important work we support with our donations, and we will enjoy the beautiful guitar of a new guest musician and the UUCPA Adult Choir singing a hymn to the Earth. The service is followed by Second Sunday Lunch and then a presentation of the plan that has emerged from our many Campus Vision conversations.
Worship leader: Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern
Worship Associate: Brian Weller
Special music: Artemiy Kolesnikov, classical guitar
