Rev. Bruce Beisner invites you to join him on Wednesday nights May 16, 23 and 30 for a series of discussions about the core values of our church and our UU faith perspective. We’ll talk about the many ways we bring our religion to life here in our church and our community and why we believe they are important. The discussion on Wednesday May 16 will focus on “reverence” and respect as the heart of our living. The discussion on Wednesday May 23 will center on “compassion” as our motivating force. And the discussion on Wednesday May 30 will explore how we care for others and engage in social justice work based on our calling to “responsibility.” You are welcome to come to one or all of these discussions. They will take place on Wednesday nights starting at 7:00pm in the church library.
