November 3: A Call for Climate Justice, Rev. Russ Savage
The evidence is all around us and mounting every day. We are warming up the planet, and it is fighting back. How shall we as people of faith respond?
November 10: The Poetry of Mary Oliver – Her Deep, Abiding Love of the World, with Ellen Adams
The poet Mary Oliver shared her amazing love of the world through her poetry. During this talk lay presenter Ellen Adams will share some favorites from this Pulitzer Prize wining poet who died this year at the age of 83. Discussion will follow.
November 17: Thanks Be for These, Rev. Russ Savage
This is the traditional time of year for giving thanks, and yet we are living in troubling and uncertain times. Let’s examine how we might give thanks even in times like these.
November 24: Aging at Home with Rapp at Home, with Joyce Wenger
Rapp at Home is a non profit organization whose mission is to sustain and enrich Rappahannock residents to age in the community comfortably, safely, independently, and with peace of mind by fostering the community support and services needed to do so. We provide transportation; facilitate access to health services; organize social and educational activities; facilitate social interaction for members; and offer a variety of opportunities for our members to volunteer to help other members. Research shows that participation in and support from an active and caring community does enable seniors to more easily remain in their own homes. I will discuss the organization, the services it offers, the relationship to the Seven Principles guiding UUBridge, and the reasons Rapp at Home is important to me.
December 1: Forgiving Ourselves with Rev. Russ Savage
Recently I delivered a sermon on forgiveness. Afterwards several people commented to me that it was useful, but what they really wanted to hear and think about is how to forgive yourself. I have been reading and thinking about this since then, and today will offer some of my thoughts about the process of self-forgiveness.
