Help!
by Rev. Kathleen Rolenz

February 20, 2011

When something goes wrong or gets broken, what's the first thing we do? More often than not we either try to ignore or deny it, fix it ourselves or give up in despair. The one thing that we could do that would make a difference is to ask for help, a practice that no one likes to do but one that has much to teach us about the world and our place in it.

This Sunday will also highlight the work of the Addiction Ministry Team. Do you ever feel like Humpty-Dumpty, or do you know someone who does? Is it possible that this feeling of brokenness is somehow related to addiction? Unlike Humpty, our brokenness can be healed. Join us to hear a message of hope.

by West Shore members

February 13, 2011

This morning we re-imagine Valentine's day as a day about a larger love that reaches out to all human brokenness. Standing on the side of love, putting feet and hands on that larger love, can be a profound spiritual practice and expression of faith in human possibility.

Speakers are April Stoltz, Pam Smith, Victor Ruiz, and Nickie Antonio.

The Banality of Evil
by Rev. Wayne Arnason

February 6, 2011

This was the title used for Hannah Ahrendt's book about evil arising from being an observer at the trial of Nazi Adolf Eichmann. "Banal" means "common" or "trite." Is our human capacity to act in evil ways "common" in the sense that all of us have such a capacity that can be brought out? What does that imply for the UU belief in humanity's basic goodness? Worship Associate Anne Obradovich joins Rev. Arnason for this reflection.
