February 2019 Services

Our theme this month explores What Does It Mean to be a People of Trust?

February   3  “In  ____ We Trust”

Rev Jonalu Johnstone speaks.  This is a Service for All Ages.  If you wouldn’t put “God” in the blank, what would you claim?  Life requires trust because too much is unpredictable.  But what is worthy of trust?  How do you figure out what should be trusted, and what to question, or even let go of?  We’ll explore what we trust–and why.  Convener is Madilena Mendiola at madilenam@gmail.com.

Members and friends are encouraged to stay following the service on February 3, to participate in a Feedback Circle.  We want to hear your thoughts and suggestions about our Sunday services. Your input helps us continue to improve Sunday mornings.  Snacks will be provided.  Please let us know if you’ll need childcare while we meet.

 

February 10  “Are We Really Made of Star Stuff?”

Physicist and longtime Fellowship member Larry Weaver joins us.  This service was originally scheduled in November, but cancelled due to unsafe weather conditions.  Now, we have another opportunity to experience one of Larry’s always thoughtful, engaging, and enlightening presentations.  Convener is Dick Beeman at rbeeman@cox.net.

 

February 17  “Trust the Process:  Let Go of the Results”

Few (if any) of us have ended up living the life we planned for ourselves, yet we still ask children what they want to be when they grow up.  What if we let go of the idea that it matters?  Join Salina UU Lay Leader Barb Gutsch in exploring the ever-changing journey that we are taking to places we could never even have imagined.  Mark Mayfield, at ferguson.mayfield@gmail.com, convenes.

 

February 24  “Restoring Trust After a Breach”

Reverend Jonalu Johnstone presents the reflection.  In this Black History Month, we’ll use the experience of the Empowerment Controversy in the UUA in the 1960’s as a case study for the breaking of trust and the slow, deliberate rebuilding that broken trust requires.  This work has implications for all the covenants of our lives–from the personal covenants like marriage to the social covenants like nations.  Dave Lambert, at david.k.lambert@gmail.com, convenes.
