Drop-In Discussion: "Oh, For Goodness Sake!"

January 26, 2020

Often said in frustration the phrase encapsulates the age-old problem of why humankind can't behave in an ethical manner. But we will examine why we UU's repeatedly violate our stated values and beliefs. For example, we claim love is the doctrine of this church, but is it? Bill Elwell presents.

Sunday Service: Conflict Without Contempt

January 26, 2020

During this sermon, we will explore some underlying conditioned messages about conflict as well as contemporary issues related to increased levels of contempt in public discourse.

We will connect these ideas to both Gandhi and King, and examine how they viewed both conflict, and contempt. Lastly we will connect these ideas to the increasing use of restorative practices, as a practical framework for harnessing the potential of conflict for growth and deeper connection.
