June Theme:  Kindness


Sunday June 30

Rev. Charlie Tyler

"Let's go for a walk...and tell ourselves stories."

Science has shown that seeing acts of kindness, even hearing about kindness has almost the same physiological affect as the act itself...you're welcome.
 



Please Note:  There will be a discussion group with Charlie after the service where we will discuss the topic of the day.

 
This service will be Live Streamed on our Facebook page beginning just before 10:00 a.m. The service will also be saved to our Facebook page and can be viewed at a later time or date if needed.

Our June Theme Is:  

 

“My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.”   ―- Dalai Lama XIV
 “Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.” --― Henry James
In the month of June we will turn our focus to Kindness as a spiritual practice. Join us and our speakers to dig into this important topic.



Our July Theme will be Mindfulness:

Mindfulness means being awake. The best way to capture moments is to pay attention. It means knowing what you are doing.  Mindfulness practice means that we commit fully in each moment to be present; inviting ourselves to BE with this moment in full awareness, with the intention to embody as best we can an orientation of calmness, mindfulness, and equanimity right here and right now.
                                                     Jon Kabat-Zinn


Other 2019 Monthly Themes:

August - Openness
September - Questioning
October - Spiritual Growth
November - Understanding
December - Wisdom





 



Coming in July: 
July 7 - Rev. Charlie Tyler

July 14 - Rev. Pat Jobe: History, Humor and Hunger For A Mindful Memory

While mindfulness calls us to the present moment, Rev. Jobe has been mindful of our UU past lately. As always he will seek the lighter side to keep us from taking ourselves too seriously, but in this worship service, he will also remind us, make us mindful again, of the great traditions that make us who we are.

July 21 - Rev. Pat Jobe: Attention, What A Price To Pay

Rev. Pat Jobe returns to ask us unto what are we paying attention? Are we burdened by news reports of horrors? Are we light and free when we see a dew drop clinging to a blade of grass? How do we balance the social conscious of Clara Barton against the mystic blue persuasion of William Blake? 


July 28 - Rabbi Robert Haas

Coming in August
August 4 - Rev. Charlie Tyler
August 11 - Rev. Pat Jobe
August 18 - Rev. Linda Slabon

The Palmetto Plant Eaters Club is free, open to the public, and meets monthly to teach and support whole food, plant-based vegan eating and living. The Club will host Mary Lou Beavers as its guest speaker on Wednesday, July 3rd at 6:30pm. She will discuss how to read a Nutrition Facts food label found on packaged foods in order to avoid too much salt, sugar, and oil as part of a a healthful, chronic disease-reversing and chronic disease-preventing whole food, plant-based diet and life style.

The one hour Palmetto Plant Eaters Club meeting will consist of introductions, announcements, upcoming calendar events, and the guest presentation. Afterward a Q&A session will take place for the speaker and to address any general plant-based lifestyle topics. Our meetings are for the curious, newbies, and longtime plant-based and vegan practitioners alike. A drawing will be held and one vegan prize will be given away to one meeting attendee. Must be present to win. Learn more about the Palmetto Plant Eaters Club at http://www.PalmettoPlantEaters.com 

Mary Lou Beavers co-founded the Eat Smart Live Longer Club in Sun City with her two sisters in 2013.  She developed the concept of a lending library for the club.  She also provides a monthly grocery store tour where she teaches club members to make better food choices and how to correctly read the Nutrition Facts label.  Teaching comes naturally to her as she taught school for 25 years in the Atlanta area.
