Love: A Cautionary Tale

Ron Randall

Whether you are a wild romantic or a cool rationalist, it’s a fair bet that love has had a profound and on-going impact on the course of your life. Passion and devotion to another person, a family, a cause, a vision, a community, or a source of meaning to it all can inspire the most beautiful and human acts we are capable of. And when misplaced or misapplied, it can lead to the greatest catastrophes imaginable. Join the Eastrose Band for a musical look through the prism of love to explore our common magnificent, disastrous, and completely human experiences with many aspects of this most powerful of our emotions. Program Leader: Deb Moskyok

Nature’s Partnerships

No shade tree? Blame not the sun but yourself. — Chinese proverb

This session focuses on the vital role trees play in our ecosystems, explores the purpose of each part of a tree, and promotes connection to a tree’s life cycle through a guided meditation.

Universalist Recovery Church (URC) 2:00 p.m.

Coping With Money

Whether we’re rolling in dough or can’t make ends meet, we probably have some issues around money. In and of itself, money isn’t good or evil, so why do some of us lose our souls over it while others of us hate it? Whatever our personal wounds and insecurities, they get reflected in our relationship with money. How can we change that?.

Prophetic Sisterhood

Reverend Patti Pomerantz

Cynthia Grant Tucker tells the story of a small group of Unitarian and Universalist women clergy in the mid-western frontier of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. They created a unique style of ministry which was at once effective and marginalized in their male dominated profession. The women eventually turned to support social issues like women’s suffrage, but their contributions to liberal ministry were not part of our common story until publication of Prophetic Sisterhood: Liberal Women Ministers of the Frontier, 1880-1930 in 1990. Program Leader: Karen Pyle

Balance in our Ecosystem

Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life—learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some. — Robert Fulghum, author and UU minister

How can balance be maintained in a large, interdependent system? What are the effects of imbalance? A Nigerian folk tale shows the consequences of not living in balance with nature and encourages us to consume less and conserve more.

8:45 a.m. RE Potluck Meeting

Universalist Recovery Church (URC) 2:00 p.m.

Passion, Preparation, and Repentance

This is the third Sunday of Lent, a time of repentance and penance. For this Scripture Sunday, we will consider John 2:13-22, in which Jesus clears the temple of vendors. The reading can tell us something about our own need to balance passion with wisdom; to prepare for a time when our life work is over, even if it’s not complete; and to repent of that which defiles our house.

Community potluck lunch at noon. All are welcome.

The flash alert link here on Christmas Eve was incorrect and has now been fixed. If we need to close again, we will use the flash alert network and you can see it on this link: FLASHALERT.

You can also link to the closures reported on KGW .

No matter the weather, please take care of yourself and be safe.
