Sunday, Feb. 3 – 9 and 11 a.m. — A Call for Revolution – Rev. Bryan Jessup
The Dalai Lama has written a book titled A Call for Revolution. In this book he speaks particularly to young people, and he urges them to join the effort to transform our human societies from violence and greed toward compassion and collaboration. He advocates for what he calls a Charter for Universal Responsibility. In this service, people will be challenged to consider how they can join the revolution. Bob Billstrom will supply special music.
Sunday, Feb. 10 – 9 and 11 a.m. — Announcing Our Place in the Family of Things – Amy Day
How can we honor, trust and live into the unique role we each carry inside the tapestry of life? Local HUUF parent, podcaster, writer and yogi Amy Day will examine the miraculous power of a humble, but deeply intentional life.
Sunday, Feb. 17 – 9 and 11 a.m. — On Being a Sanctuary – the Rev. Bryan Jessup
Last year, members of the Humboldt Unitarian Universalist Fellowship voted to become a Sanctuary Congregation which supports immigrants in danger of exploitation, abuse and deportation. In this service, the congregation will look at what it has done so far to offer sanctuary and will look at what it might do in the future.
Brenda Urueta, of True North Organizing, will offer a Rapid Response Training following the 11 a.m. service.
Sunday, Feb. 24 – 9 and 11 a.m. — To Bear Witness – Maureen Lawlor
When we bear witness to someone else’s story, we have the privilege and opportunity to take a little piece of the burden that person carries and hold it for them. Sometimes what is being shared is a boulder that the teller is struggling to carry. Each time someone tells us their story, and we listen deeply to their truth without judgment, it is as though that teller is giving us a little pebble chipped off that boulder. The more someone is able to share their story, the more they are able to decrease the power it has over them and lessen its burden.
How can we as individuals truly bear witness to each other, in our daily lives and in our own congregation? How can we as a congregation truly bear witness to the world? Maureen Lawlor, a HUUF member, chairperson of the Social Action Committee, and volunteer coordinator for the Breast and GYN Health Project, will explore bearing witness together.
