Sunday, November 11, 2018: Interdependent Web [postponed from 14 Oct]

Seven Principles Wheel

Definition of interdependence

1 : the state of being dependent upon one another : mutual interdependence of the two nations’ economies … a form of symbiosis, of close mutual interdependence of two species of organisms.— Marston Bates … the deep psychological interdependence between ourselves and those we love.— Judith A. Savage … understood the interdependence of mental, physical, and spiritual health.— Donald N. Levine But plants happen to grow in these little universes we call ecosystems, where they are sustained by complex webs of interdependency with fungi, microbes, animals, and other plants.— Kenneth Brower

2 : a mutually dependent relationship Growing global interdependencies further muddy the debate, making it harder to know who “we” are and what “our” national interests really are.— Peter H. Schuck There are complex interdependences among these factors …— Victor H. Benenberg

 

We would love to have you come worship with us.

Our 7th and newest principle is “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” We often talk more about nature than the “we are a part”, and the interdependence of people, countries, life, the universe, and everything. Lisa deGruyter will share some thoughts on that.

Our services are Sundays at 11 a.m. at the Progressive Women’s Association Event Center, 305 Washington Ave. in downtown Clarksburg, behind the Courthouse. There are classes for children and adults 10 to 10:45 am, and a coffee gathering before the service. More about us.

Classes and worship are replaced by Spiritual Outings on the first Sunday of each month during the summer, with brief worship, a potluck picnic, and outdoor activities. The schedule is in the sidebar.

Children are welcome.  There is childcare and an activity for young children during the service.

The building is wheelchair accessible, with an accessible restroom.

Safe Space/Brave Space

From First UU Austin, October 21. The sermon begins at about 29:30 minutes in. The reading at about 22:30.

Meg had asked on Facebook for thoughts on threats and challenges for this service. The sermon Safe Space/Brave Space, how we can make and be sanctuary,  is on supporting and challenging each other.

Religious Education

It is also available as an eBook in the Amazon Kindle store and on Google Play.

Everyone is welcome to join the discussion, whether you have read the book or not.

We will be using the discussion guide, broken down into shorter sessions, which is available here: https://www.uuabookstore.org/Assets/PDFs/centering_discguide.pdf

On the other Sundays, we will have topical discussions, and people are also free to bring their own current concerns to discuss.

Meeting for Business

We will meet for business at the beginning of our Spiritual Outing on the first Sunday of October, at Deegan-Hinkle Lake, to accept new members, followed by a book signing. If you are considering membership and have not yet let us know, please email westforkuu@gmail.com

From our Bylaws “Any person age 12 or over who joins in the Purpose and Covenant of this community may become a member after recommendation by the Ministry and Oversight Committee, acceptance by the congregation at a monthly meeting, and signing the Membership Book. All who sign the Membership Book shall become eligible to vote thirty (30) days after they sign. To remain a member, a person participates in the affairs of the community, remains in right relationship, and contributes time, money, or both.”

If you have additional items for the agenda, please email by September 26 so we can post a revised agenda by the ten-day deadline.
