“Remembering” – Rev. Julie Taylor, Guest Preacher

Memorial Day (originally Decoration Day) was created to honor and remember those who have died in service to our country. This Memorial Day weekend, Rev. Julie Taylor will help us remember sacrifices for our nation from a UU perspective. Rev. Taylor is a UU community minister specializing in critical incident response, trauma, and disaster spiritual care. She serves as a chaplain with the New York Air National Guard (Captain) and as an adjunct professor at the Starr King School of Ministry, Meadville Lombard Theological School and Eden Theological Seminary.

Other Programs and Activities

9 to 10 a.m. – Forum Adult Discussion – Lower Level-Library/Forum Room

The Memorial Day holiday weekend program will be Bill Clark’s description of a journey from ancient hieroglyphics to the 21st century. Forum information.

9:30 a.m. – Mindfulness Meditation – Fire Circle

Mindfulness Meditation takes place every Sunday in the Centering Room – or, if the weather is suitable, outside around the Fire Circle. On fourth Sundays throughout the year, Mindfulness Meditation takes place at the Fire Circle whatever the weather (unless it is raining). Meditators of all levels of experience are welcome. This is mainly silent meditation with some instruction, if needed, and with brief selected readings from eminent teachers. Our hope is to build a group of UU members committed to regular meditation practice. Email Peter Holmes for more information.

10:30 to 11:30 a.m. – Children’s Religious Education – Lower Level

On May 27 the children will be participating in a Service Sunday. They will be making birthday bags for Rainbow House.

On June 3, the worship services at church and Down by the Riverside will be multi-generational, so there will be no R.E. classes that day. Art supplies will be available in the sanctuary to engage children.

Summer R.E. programs will begin June 10.

Noon to 2 p.m. – YRUU – Canceled on May 27

Members of YRUU, our high school youth group, will not meet this Memorial Day weekend.
