Welcome to the UUCL Weekly Email
 
This Sunday, June 6, 2021
we will have a Live Streamed service
beginning at 10:00 a.m.


The service will be viewable on our Website
or on our Facebook Page

 


Rev. Neal Jones
"Healing Childhood Wounds"

No one escapes childhood without wounds. As children, we had little say over how we were treated, but as adults, we can decide how much say our past may have in our present. We'll consider some practical things we can do to facilitate our healing of old wounds.

Extinguishing the Chalice

June Theme:  Healing

June 13, 2021
Rev. Dick Hood

"A Skeptic Looks at Healing"

Can we heal one another?  Are there magic healing potions?  How should a UU look at this age old religious and social tradition of healing?
June 20, 2021
Rev. Pat Jobe (live in Bluffton)

"And what do we do with miracles?"

George Bernard Shaw was deeply cynical that anything was a miracle. Oral Roberts made millions convincing folks he could work miracles. Is there common ground? Is there something to be gained from miracle stories, positive thinking, confident emotions?

Rev. Pat Jobe is back in the Bluffton pulpit after 15 months away and only showing up via video feed. On June 20, he is live and in person and talking about healing, especially the kind that appears to be miraculous.
