June 24th – “The Gospel According to Biff” Rev. Kären Rasmussen

This service is taken from the book “Lamb: the Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal” which is written by Christopher Moore. Join Rev. Kären as we take a look at the roles of humor, sarcasm and cynicism both in UUism and in our lives. Wait, what? There might be some sarcasm and cynicism in UUism? Well, maybe, and some humor too!

July 1st “Forswear Thy Foolish Ways” – Rev. Kären Rasmussen

With songs and stories from the musical Godspell, we take a look at Mary Magdalene, sin and being imperfect people as we build a Beautiful City together. Come and join Rev. Kären as we enjoy some music from Godspell and have a little chat about our all too human imperfections.

 

July 8th – “Excrement, Expletives, and Expectations”Rev. Timothy Tutt, Senior Minister Westmoreland Congregational United Church of Christ   

Do you remember when a “prominent politician” referred to some places in the world as “dung heaps”?  (That wasn’t actually the phrase the “prominent politician” used, but this a PG publication and “dung heaps” is in the Bible, so let’s go with that.) Maybe that seems like old news. But we do that all the time. We call people names as if those labels summed up lives. We discount others with shorthand phrases. We say, “Flyover states,” as if certain places were best avoided. “She owns a gun,” we say, as if that person was one dimensional. “Dung heaps,” someone might say about a country as if that were factual. In his July 8 sermon, Rev. Timothy Tutt will revisit the “dung heap” comments of the “prominent politician” and will explore them in the light of some old Jewish and Christian sayings to see what the ancient faith traditions had to say about the worth of all people and to examine out own expectations of others.
