The Church Body - 9:30,

Committee Fair - 11:15

Revs. Elaine and Axel Gehrmann and Ray Krise

Our church can be thought of as a body, with many moving parts, most of them crucial to the health and well-being of our communal life. This morning we will have two opportunities to learn more about our church body, to hear from some of its parts, and to consider how we might help it to thrive. At our 9:30 worship service, we will hear about various church "body parts," and hear from some of those who feed and nurture those parts. We will recognize some crucial "organs" and help you consider what part you might play in the ongoing health and development of our living organism. At the 11:15 service time, we will have the opportunity to interact with current members of our various groups and committees, who are the "life blood" of this body. At this "Make It Happen Celebration" you are invited to mix and mingle with old and new members and friends, and learn more about ways that your gifts and talents might find rewarding outlets. Please plan to join us for both the 9:30 worship and the 11:15 celebration.

Embracing Body and Soul-- Spirituality and Sexuality

Rev. Elaine Gehrmann and Alex Jensen

Unitarian Universalists generally reject the old duality dividing body and spirit. We find divinity not only in the soul but in the physical body, of humans, animals, plants, and the earth itself. We encourage a life-long appreciation of our bodies, including our sexual selves. The "Our Whole Lives" sexual education curriculum is a great implementation of our UU embrace of both our spirituality and sexuality. As our 7th and 8th graders are beginning this curriculum, we will reflect upon the larger implications of our non-dualistic approach to body and soul.
