Martin Luther King once said, "The people in our country must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools. If you're involved in a conflict, you'll want to know about the "Art of Compromise." A compromise is one type of win-win solution, although it requires that both parties give up something in order to solve the problem. What does that mean as it pertains to our own lives? Learn about "The Art of Compromise" and how it relates to being a Unitarian Universalist.

A bucket list is commonly thought of as a list of things you want to personally do before you "kick the bucket." But it is much more. Everyone has one. We are all familiar with writing lists. They help us accomplish chores, convey our hopes and remember what to buy. Yet most people don’t take the time to write a personal lifetime to-do list. As you age your “bucket list” not only looks into what you wish to do in the future, but it is also an accumulation of things you have accomplished in the past. We will explore the realm of possibilities.

The world seems to have a plan for us, where we “should” go and what we should do. But what happens when that path seems to dead end or we veer "off the map?" A bit like zombies searching for their lost humanity, we stumble along, on a sort of mission, to find some redemption and rediscover our souls. Where are we really heading, and how do we find our way? Sermon comes complete with map! Service offered by Worship Associate Barbara G. Howell and her daughter Emily Betz Close.

The Biblical story of Jacob wrestling with the shadow can hold great power and wisdom for us in the darkest times of our life journey. Jacob shouts, “I will not let you go until you bless me!” How can we wrestle with our “dark night of the soul” and not let go until we deepen our capacity for joy, hope and courage as well as our understanding of who we are and can become?
