June 24 - Choosing to Bless the World
Guest speaker: Rev. Jordinn Nelson Long

Rebecca Parker, theologian and past president of the Unitarian Universalist Starr King School for the ministry in Berkeley, California, called us to realize that our gifts "can be used to bless or curse the world." Join us today for this inspirational service led by Rev. Jordinn Nelson Long, minister of the Unitarian Universalist Society of Fairhaven, Massachusetts, as we engage the possibilities and the challenges of choosing to bless the world.


July 1 - Music Sunday!
Jane Runneals

Join us for a spirit-filled service full of music geared for everyone from age 1 to 101!  Prepare to fully participate with sharing whatever form of music best suits you – from humming, whistling, singing, clapping, dancing, or tapping your toes to the rhythm.  There will be a time for special requests from the hymnals as well.  Manish Mishra-Marzetti says, “The universe sings no less because time and space wear us thin.  The music calls us…to recognize that the song is best sung with others.”  Together, WE are the music that brings life and joy to this congregation!


July 8 - Poetic Expression
Amy Slagell & Peggy Earnshaw

During the summer months our Fellowship features some lay-led Sunday programs that invite all of us to see each other in a new light.  This program features some poets among us and poems that explore a wide range of the human experience.


July 15 - Something in the Way We Move
Karen Bates

For millions of years of human evolution, a sedentary lifestyle was not an option.  In many parts of the world still today, people walk considerable distances, squat on their haunches for long conversations, and perform many physical activities in their daily lives.  They display an ease in their movements which most of us have lost as tension stiffens our bodies.  Join us as we rediscover our freedom of movement using various modalities including breathing.


July 22 - A Bridge of Flame
Christopher Chase

Hinduism and Unitarian Universalism share some symbols, values, and history in common. The fire of the UU chalice and the fire of the incensed Hindu lamp each resonate with growth and transformation. This discussion serves to build a bridge between Unitarian Universalism and Hinduism as practiced by our fellow Iowans.

A visit to the HIndu temple near Madrid is being arranged for Saturday, July 21.


July 29 - The Living Soil
Dan Haug

As David Montgomery writes, it is possible to grow food in a way that rebuilds rather than depletes the soil.  Building soil is a hopeful and practical response to many pressing environmental issues, as well as a deeply spiritual act of connection to land and community.
