Program 487: Scandinavian Solstice; Italy 2017

Release Date: 06-17-2017

Description

Hear how the summer solstice is celebrated in Scandinavia, where the official start of summer is a big deal. Then listen in as Italian friends discuss the effects of their country’s high unemployment rate — and how Italians are meeting the challenge — before taking listener calls to share tips for a “dolce vita” vacation. And come along as we visit with some Tuscan craftsmen keeping traditions alive in their hill town home.

Guests

  • Pal Johansen, tour guide from Oslo
  • Nina Bernardo, Italy tour guide from Rome
  • Cecilia Bottai, Italian tour guide and vintner
  • Ann Long, Italy tour guide from Sorrento
  • Feature on Montepulciano, Italy from Cameron Hewitt

Sermon: “Answering the Call of Love” by Rev. Jason Cook

“If you’ve looked ahead on your order service you know we’re going to be singing the song “Standing on the Side of Love” today, only we are going to be singing it as “answering the call of love” instead. The composer, Jason Shelton, has asked us to sing it that way from now on. The question is why?

In a word: ableism.”
Is the beginning of Rev Jason Cook’s Sermon delivered at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Fullerton, CA on November 13, 2016. I hope you find it insightful.
Namaste,
Cricket

Sunday February 19, 2017

“Indeed our survival and liberation depend upon our recognition of the truth when it is spoken and lived by the people. If we cannot recognize the truth, then it cannot liberate us from untruth. To know the truth is to appropriate it, for it is not mainly reflection and theory. Truth is divine action entering our lives and creating the human action of liberation.”
James H. Cone

This Sunday we will explore the connection between liberation theology and the Unitarian Universalist Association.

We would love to have you come worship with us.

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.

Our Religious Education/ Life Long Learning Class will meet at from 10am to 10:45 am with a coffee gathering before the service. More about us.

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