July 15 – “Marinating the Future…Again” by Rev. Peter Bauer
This sermon will address being able to sit with and meditate upon beliefs that are important to our lives, our theologies.

A religious scholar and novelist will give us insight into this process.

Bauer is a social activist who has committed his life to providing emotional, psychological, and spiritual care to military service members, veterans, and their families.

August 5 – “If We Don’t Do This, What Do We Do?!” by Rev. Chuck Freeman
Texas is ground zero for our identity as a nation and our identity as a faith. Its that simple. With the Anti-Sanctuary bill now law (SB4) our Hispanic neighbors are in jeopardy for their freedom, safety, and very lives. With the DACA decision, add 124,000 of our Hispanic youth to the bigoted target list. During abolition and after the Fugitive Slave Act passed many UUs were active in the Underground Railroad. Protesting, writing letters, resisting, and rallies were not enough. We are in a parallel historical moment now. The Texas UU Justice Ministry (TXUUJM) is actively encouraging and equipping congregations to develop and join Sanctuary Networks. How will your congregation respond?
Rev. Chuck Freeman has been in the ministry since 1977 serving Church of Christ and Unitarian Universalist congregations. He is the founding minister of the Free Souls Church in Round Rock,Texas. Chuck is a founding member of TXUUJM and its Executive Director.
