July 6, “Blessing of the Animals”
Join us in celebrating all creatures of the earth!
This BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS celebrates all the creatures of the earth and reminds us that we are a part of the interdependent web of all existence.
Bring your animal companions (or a photograph of them to share) and participate in this tribute to all creatures.
Jeremiah Myer and Carrie Rice will lead this service.
July 13, “Justice in Family Law”
Our second UU principal is "Justice, equity and compassion in human relations." Family law requires compassion and equity, but is justice possible? Susan Chambers serves as the Blue Earth County Family Court Referee, working with families in high conflict with dissolutions, custody and parenting time disputes and dealing with domestic violence matters. She will discuss her efforts to incorporate this principal in her every day work at the Justice Center.
Worship Leaders—Jane Lawther and Henry Panowitsch
July 20, “The Inherent Worth and Dignity of all People”
Kathy Johnson, Central High Principal
Central High School students have not found success in their “home school” for many reasons: teen pregnancy, bullying, failing several classes, mental health and/or chemical health. The students often feel that their community does not value them and looks at them as “the bad kids.” Central's mission is: Assuring learning excellence and readiness for a changing world. Our Core Values are: Integrity; Respect; Excellence; Adaptability; Responsibility; Engagement and Collaboration.
The invited guest speaker is the Rev. Lisa Doege from Nora Unitarian Church in Hanska. More Details to follow in Wednesday Weekly updates and our Sunday order of services.
