A 9:30 a.m. service will be lead by Margaret Kelso and Shawna Bynum. The topic is "Intellect and Moral Character — What Moves Us: UU Theology #4."

He felt that developing the moral perfection of our character animates the "real beauty of religion" and all its harmonious sentiments, views, and desires. Does the foundation of your Unitarian Universalism come more from your head or your heart? Do emotions enhance or deter from religion? 11 a.m. “Spirit and Prayer” Traditional service with Rev. David Usher and Sunday Service Assistant Iris Barrie. We talk about spirituality as if we know what the word means, but it is an elusive concept, not the exclusive province of any single religious tradition or theological explanation and subject to many interpretations.
