Someone once observed that “the older I got, I was amazed at how much smarter my parents became.” The other side of that coin is the observation that “the older I get, the less I know.” How do grown-ups feel about all the things that kids want to know, when we are more and more convinced that we may not really know very much at all. The Junior Choir will be with us to sing, "Why Can't I Sail the Sky," with Eva Wynn providing dance accompaniment.

There's a line in a country song that goes "If I knew what I was doing, I'd be doing it right now." It isn't just that I often don't have the energy to do what I think I ought to do, but that I also don't really know what I want to do, having hid-den it from even myself.

Many of the most powerful movements for social justice have been those inspired and sustained by religious faith and practice. Many of us yearn to bring our own justice commitments into deeper conversation with our spiritual lives, to find that same inspiration and sustenance. How might we learn do this, individually and together, and what difference can it make? Rev. McTigue is the Director of the new UU College of Social Justice, a dynamic new collaboration of the UUA and UUSC. Prior to accepting this position in 2012, she served as a parish minister for 25 years, first in North Carolina and then New Haven, CT. The mission of the College of Social is to inspire and sustain faith-based justice work on issues of local, national and global importance. Our group from West Shore will be traveling to Haiti under the auspices of the College. The Outreach Offering will be received for The College of Social Justice; a brief service to Commission the team going to Haiti this month will also be included in this Sunday’s service.

it’s Not About Me

Theater has always been a part of my life. I began acting professionally when I was nine, and continued to perform in theater until I began serving my first congregation. It was both challenging and intoxicating to develop the skills to play the roles I was cast for, and I loved the applause. So my hardest lesson was to learn, to really learn, that the play was not about me. The Free Spirit Band will be playing this Sunday, featuring a song country star Lee Ann Womack wrote and popularized, I Hope You Dance.

Opening music is played in it's entirety at the end of the recording.
