St. Cloud Unitarian Universalist Fellowship
10:30 a.m. Sunday, March 4: "The Horizon Leans Forward" - Rev. Ashley Horan, MUUSJA (Minnesota UU Social Justice Alliance)
What can the fractal patterns in the universe teach us about effective,
powerful, faithful organizing for justice in our congregations and
beyond? Together, we'll explore the implications--for both our
congregations and our society at large--of the idea that "what we
practice at the small scale sets the pattern for the whole system."
Soup and Bread Lunch in the Fellowship Hall follows the service. Visitors, please be our guests!
10:30 a.m. Sunday, March 11: Anne Hutchinson Puritan Heretic - Ralph Carr
(Daylight Savings Time Begins. Spring Forward!)
How does a strong-willed woman, a devoted Christian with very
non-orthodox religious values, living in 17th century puritanical New
England negotiate her place in society, especially when the patriarchal
leadership comes after her? We explore her struggles, her allies, her
skilled defense, and her eventual fate. We remind ourselves of why our
UU principles are so vital to all of us in the UU community today.
10:30 a.m. Sunday, March 18: Jesus and Muhammad as Role Models
for Christians and Muslims - Jon Armajani, Ph.D., Professor of
Theology, College of Saint Benedict / Saint John's University
Drawing on a variety of sources from Christianity and Islam, this presentation
compares and contrasts Jesus and Muhammad as role models for Christians
and Muslims, historically and in the contemporary period.
Our UU tradition draws from many sources including "Wisdom from the
world's religions which inspire us in our ethical and spiritual
life". What can we learn from these religious leaders? Music will
be provided by guest musician Richard Chandler, playing his bassoon.
10:30 a.m. Sunday March 25: "How Much is that Nice Church in the Window?" - Rev. Shelley Dugan
Religion and money are tough topics all by themselves. It is even more
convoluted when we talk about them together! Join us as we
explore the intersection between money and religion.
