A Change in February:
February 25: 9 and 11 a.m. – The Twelve Steps as a Path for Everyone Who Wants a Way – Bob Billstrom and Jo Ann Huffman
In this service, we will explore the Twelve Steps as a helpful, flexible structure to guide us on our pilgrimage through life. As they work to embody the principles of Unitarian Universalism, many UUs have found solid help from the Twelve Steps. While they may not work for everyone, millions have found them to be a highly effective path, just one more spoke in the wheel of mystery leading to the hub.
March 4: 9 and 11 a.m. – The New Poor People’s Campaign and a Moral Revival in the USA – The Rev. Bryan Jessup and Richard Kossow
The New Poor People’s Campaign is a national call for a moral revival in this country based on economic justice for poor people and care for the planet. The campaign is uniting tens of thousands of people across the country to challenge the evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation and the nation’s distorted morality.
March 11: 9 and 11 a.m. – UU Family Practices – Therese FitzMaurice and Wendy Rowan
Whether you're partnered or flying solo, raising children or childless, all are born into a family. As we age, we define what family means, change and shape our own identity within our most intimate communities – the family we are born into and the family we choose to create. How can our UU community foster and support us to create and sustain loving families?
March 18: 9 and 11 a.m. - Giving to the Mission and the Message – the Rev. Bryan Jessup
The theme for our canvass this year is “The Sharing of the Green.” In this canvass sermon we will consider how any congregation actually functions and supports itself – and why supporting a congregation with our time, talent and treasure might be important in our lives.
March 25: 9 and 11 a.m. – Dentistry as Ministry – the Rev Tom Lewis
Is access to health care a right or a privilege? Health care is a social justice issue. It's a right, not a privilege. Social justice is at the core of our UUA Principles. This morning Rev. Lewis will discuss his personal journey and transformation from a general dentist in Arcata, to his call to attend seminary and his ordination as a minister by this congregation. Dentistry has become an integral part of his ministry. Come and listen to his journey and the deep connection of his call with HUUF.
Tom Lewis was ordained a UU Minister in 2004. After graduating from seminary at Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, he was called to serve the Sierra Foothills UU Congregation as their parish minister. After leaving SFUU for health reasons, Tom began to volunteer his dental skills in various free clinics, including at homeless shelters and in Baja, Mexico, Nicaragua, the Philippines, and locations in California.
