10:30 Service:— Sheila McMahon, Women’s History Month - - -We will celebrate the lives of two women who contributed to bettering the lives of many Americans.        During New York’s 1933 Catholic Worker Movement, Dorothy Day declared "Feed the poor and they call you a saint.  But ask why are the poor not being fed, and they call you a Communist!"       Born in 1858 into a socially prominent Philadelphia family, Katherine Drexel was destined to be a debutante. Instead, she dedicated her life and fortune to the material and spiritual well-being of underprivileged Blacks and Native Americans.

     ANNUAL MEETING TO FOLLOW THE SERVICE

April 30, 2017

9:15 Discussion Group Topic:
10:30 Service:—  D
an Kerr, “Why It’s Important to be a UU Now”
Today we are struck by the question:  Why don’t neighbors live peacefully together without the threat of terrorism, bigotry, hatred, and isolationism?   What can we do about a world in such turmoil?  The answer lies in who we are as Unitarians.  Instead of a sermon this Sunday, our choir will share five readings with the congregation, followed by singing five new anthems, describing the five steps of Unitarian Universalism that can lead us to counter the negative world we live in.
Service Leader: Denise Carter
