Serendipity #3: Does Nature Have All the Answers?

Date: July 7, 2019

Topic: Does Nature Have All the Answers?

UU’s tend to be people of science … and people with a deep respect (if not love) for nature. And we use a lot of natural science examples. Today we’re talking about ‘does nature have all the answers?’

Serendipity #4: Is Truth Useful?

Date: July 14, 2019

Topic: Is Truth Useful?

Come for stories of when ‘truth’ was useful – and when it was not. Is ‘truth’ useful in your life? Is it still a valuable concept?

Serendipity #6: Light - Metaphors, Meaning & Unfortunate Accidents

Date: July 28, 2019

Topic: Light – Metaphors, Meaning & Unfortunate Accidents

It can be a challenge to recognize the ways our metaphors might exclude people – until someone points it out to us. Once we know, can we continue to use them? When does an ‘accident’ become an ‘intentional offence’?

Service Leader: Heather MacLean-Smith

Serendipity #7: Interdependence - the Wider Circles

Date: August 4, 2019

Topic: Interdependence – the Wider Circles

It’s easier to understand ‘interdependence’ within our closest circles. What about the wider circles of life? What might continental, or global, interdependence mean? And how do we take out place or do our part?

Service Leader: Ilara Stefaniuk-Gaudet
