June Theme:  Kindness


Sunday June 9
10:00 a.m.


Rev. Pat Jobe

"The First Person Who Needs Kindness Is In The Mirror"

Two weeks ago rescuing star fish and radical acceptance did not go over so well after the service. Rev. Jobe is back to encourage our journeys as UU's. He offers us the juice of self-love as a way forward in a time of harsh realities. 




Please Note:  There will a discussion group with Rev. Jobe 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.

Thanks to a generous donation from the Titus Family and the Ron Titus Memorial Fund our congregation has the equipment to 'Live Stream' our Sunday services!


Due to technical constraints and requests from our speakers we will not be able to stream every Sunday service.  When we do stream, our services will be available for viewing live shortly before 10:00 a.m. over our UUCL Facebook Page .   When the service is over, a recording of the service will be saved to Facebook so it can be viewed by anyone at a later time or date.  

We are excited about this new technology and hope it will help our members and friends, regardless of where you are located, stay connected with UUCL.

Thank You
UUCL 

 
Hearing Assisted Devices are available at the rear of the Sanctuary.

UUCL Life

Interim Pastoral Minister
Rev. Charlie Tyler


Charlie Tyler has agreed to serve as our interim pastoral minister.  Charlie’s telephone number is 803-473-6048.  You can call him to schedule an appointment for pastoral counseling. Please be mindful that Charlie is the chaplain for Hospice of the Lowcountry, a full-time job.  He is not able to engage in lengthy telephone conversations when he is working.  


**********
We are so pleased that Charlie Tyler has agreed to be our interim pastoral minister, first when Jim Morrison went on sabbatical and then again following Jim Morrison’s resignation.  What we have with Charlie is an interim agreement.  UUCL will have another Congregational Meeting in October when most of our people who leave for the summer are back. We would like the Congregation to vote to extend a contract to Charlie for a specific period of time like a year or two years at a time. In the meantime Charlie is available for pastoral counseling, emergencies, weddings and memorial services, 3 out of 4 Sunday services, and to participate in our board meetings and committee meetings. We are so fortunate that Charlie will care for us.

Our Minister Emeritus
Rev. Manuel Holland

June 16 – Hollie Ulbrich
"The Faith of our  Fathers: A Revolutionary Faith?"

With Flag Day just as, Fathers' Day today, and the summer solstice (high point in the life cycle of the Sung King of the Celtic tradition), and Independence Day just ahead of us, perhaps it's a good time to reconsider our founding fathers and the close connections between their vision of political democracy and Unitarian Universalism.


Holley Ulbrich is a retired professor of economics from Clemson University with a post-retirement master's degree in theological studies from Emory University.She has been preaching as a lay person since 1976 when she was  a Lutheran before becoming a UU in 1990.  She is a member of the UUA  Commission on Appraisal.


 
***********
June 23 – Cheryl Kanuck
"Gay Pride; Feel the Rainbow"

Among all of the marginalized populations we care about, LGBTQ people are perhaps the most difficult for us to reach out to as a group.  They look just like everybody else --- No visible labels.  They are the guy who mows your lawn, the doctor, the lawyer, the waitress.  How do we connect with these brothers and sisters? Let’s talk about it.

Exciting Music News!

UUCL desires to expand its musical offering for services by beginning a small brass ensemble. The group will include interested members of the congregation as well as friends from the wider Bluffton community. The group will be facilitated by a music conservatory graduate with extensive small brass ensemble experience and will play pieces of varied style including the classical brass ensemble repertory to jazz and popular music arrangements. Great technical facility is not necessary, just a desire to do a little work, create music and have some fun! If interested, please contact Ken Lindner at ken@lindnerbison.com

Renowned Activist, Author, Artist & Pastor to Present “Faith & Race” program on June 22

What does our faith have to say about race? How do our religious and spiritual practices shape us as we live in a racially diverse society? Join Dr. Wherry as he challenges us on the intersections of faith and race, and the ways faith informs our lives together.

The St. Andrew By-The-Sea Bridge Builders Committee is offering the Faith & Race program free to the public at the church's Hilton Head Campus, located at 20 Pope Avenue, Hilton Head, SC   29928.

In addition to the Saturday program on Hilton Head, Dr. Wherry will be the guest preacher at St. Andrew's Bluffton Campus on Sunday, June 23. The Bluffton Campus is located just off the Bluffton Parkway at 39 Persimmon St., #203/204.
