March 25 – “Have and Have Not” by Rev. Dr. Joshua Snyder
This is UUSC Sunday Justice Sunday. What are the ethical implications of our interconnections? What do they obligate us to do in the real world? With stark economic injustice in our country and around the world, the answers are few and the problems are many. Yet Unitarian Universalists can make a difference.
April 1 – “Easter Pageant – Part III: Who Moved the Stone?” by Rev. Dr. Joshua Snyder
Part three of our three part Easter Pageant, written by Sheri Phillabaum and starring Robby Vance as Jesus (clearly the role he was born to play!) This is an intergenerational service that will include adults and kids. Also a brief homily by Rev. Josh.
April 8 – “Consent: Myths and Tropes” by Dr. Sheri Phillabaum
Consent is the word of the year when it comes to sexual relationships. Navigating romantic and sexual relationships is complicated by a culture that bombards us with images and plot lines that make a good story but don’t work well in real life. Today we will look at some dubious myths and tropes perpetuated in media, and how Unitarian Universalist values provide a better blueprint.
Note:this sermon contains direct references to sex, sexuality, and assault. Estimated rating: PG13
April 15 – “Gandhi and Religion” by Rev. Dr. Joshua Snyder
Gandhi once said that there can be no religion without sacrifice. What did he mean by this? Sacrifice is a key element in the Hindu tradition dating back to the time of the earliest scripture; the Vedas. Gandhi saw the religion of his time as being an extension of that long tradition. What might the role of sacrifice be in religion today?
April 22 – “The Road Less Traveled” by Rev. Dr. Joshua Snyder
Robert Frost spoke of “the road less traveled” in his famous poem about two paths diverging in the woods. Furthermore, the psychologist M. Scott Peck used the poem as a metaphor for his psychological theories and practice. Using some of Peck’s work, we will see what spiritual wisdom he and Frost have for the times in which we live.
