Coming Sunday, March 22nd 10am

Reverend Nancy Holden returns from the winter with her sermon "Applying The Principles".

"...Conflicts and contradictions are inevitable when we try to apply ideals to a complex web of life. Nature is never simple. The ideals that point us toward defense of life must be seen in the context of reality, so we're forced to make choices that can sometimes seem cruel." Read the full text in our "Sermons" section.

Calendar

Sunday, March 8, 10 am - James Handley the Peace Studies advisor at UW-Stout will be presenting Lessons Learned. He will share with us his reflections on two years of "peace learning" at Stout, and about his experiences with students and curriculum. RE and childcare will be available.

Meditation group will meet after the service.

Sunday, March 15, 10 am - Socrates Cafe at Golden Leaf
and
New UU lead by Dave Williams at our spiritual home.

Sunday, March 22, 10 am - Reverend Nancy Holden returns to lead the service. She will present Applying Principles. Every time UUs gather, the familiar principles are spoken or read, but applying these expressions of our values can be difficult. This message walks us through all seven, outlining potential conflicts with the values of other cultures, and real life situations where all available choices are unpalatable. Decisions about the beginning and ending of life divide people so often and so sharply for this very reason--a time when good choices could have been made has passed, and the remaining options all violate our principles. What ruling law can guide us then? RE and childcare provided.
