August2 5| We Are Not As Important As We Think We Are

Do you ever feel weighed down with responsibility to others? Does it ever feel as if you can never do enough? You may not be as important as you think you are.

 — Peter House


August 9 | Autism’s Many Gifts

In recent years, we have all become more aware of autism, and how it impacts the lives of those who have it. Autism is usually seen as a disability, but is it also a gift? We will explore the many ways that autistic individuals enrich our lives.

August 16 | The Hunger for Touch

It's one of the biggest griefs of this time period.  Unitarian Universalism's Our Whole Lives curriculum has a word for it- skin hunger.  Do you miss hugging your friends?  Reaching out to connect at the end of church?  You are not alone.  Let's explore this particular grief together.

— Rev. Lane Campbell

August 30 | When a Picture Paints Too Many Words

— Peter House

*First Universalist has a long-standing tradition of having one Sunday sermon a month be presented by someone other than our minister. Our lay-led services give our minister well-deserved unscheduled time, as well as allowing us to share our individual spiritual journeys, experiences and diverse world views, which is an important part of our rich Unitarian Universalist heritage.
