SUNDAY, February 8

How Often Do You Express Your UU Values Publicly? If you are like many liberals, you are reluctant or uncomfortable linking your social justice concerns to your liberal faith. According to the author of this year’s UU Common Read Selection, this leaves a void which is currently being dominated by the voices of religious conservatives. Can we and should we be doing more? Please take the time to read this important book and come and participate in a discussion and light lunch on Sunday, February 1 immediately after the eleven o’clock service.  Copies of the book are available for sale after both services each Sunday in January.  For more information please contact Carol Larson at church or at carolmlars@maine.rr.com
