June 17: Father's Day Flower Ceremony
Join us at 11:00am, June 17, 2018 at Lakeland Unitarian Universalist Fellowship for a Flower Ceremony to celebrate Father's Day and our commitment to the world-wide community of which we are all a part. All are invited to coffee hour following the service. Fathers, and all who have served as a father in any way, will be celebrated before and during the Flower Ceremony. Everyone is encouraged to bring a flower to the service, though flowers will be available for those who do not bring one. Flowers can be of any type from wildflowers growing on the side of the road to hot house flowers from a grocery store. They may have great significance to you or simply be something that you find pretty. We will combine these flowers before the ceremony as we are combined in community. As we leave we will take with us a different flower than we came with, just as we take new knowledge and strength from our experiences together.
May 13: GUIDED BY THE GREAT GODDESS - Rev. Allen Wells
Rev. Wells says, "It seems clear to me that at this moment in time our world is adrift and sorely in need of a different consciousness for guidance. I remember somewhere reading that Tacitus reportedly proclaimed that rulers should be restricted to women who are breast feeding. I would like to suggest that we can find a seed for renewal in the ancient mythology of The Great Goddess, and celebrate the budding of it in the flowering of a new women’s movement."
MAY 6: A MAYPOLE SERVICE FOR BELTANE - Cynthia Lightbody and Lucy Cilento
LUUF member Cyn Lightbody and Lucy Cilento will present the annual May Day program on May 6 at 11 a.m., at the Lakeland Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 231 Parish Drive, Wayne.
Beltane has been described as a season of rebirth, a time to celebrate the blooming of the flowers, the growing of the crops, and even personal rejuvenation. “May is a month awash with flowers blooming, trees leafing, animal babies being born and lovely, sunny days,” Lightbody notes. “It makes us feel young again. Join us in this celebration, complete with songs and a Maypole dance.” Celebrate Spring with us and bring the energy of rebirth to your life, our community and the world!
April 29: John Freund presents: "Who Knows? - The Truth Emerges"
Mr. Freund says, "Who knows "The Truth"? Emergence is "the process whereby larger entities, patterns, and regularities arise through interactions among smaller or simpler entities that themselves do not exhibit such properties. Unitarian Universalism has come to aspire to be a religion of Emergence; where differing theologies existing together lead to a larger truth. I use Malaysian fireflies, Sir Francis Galton's visit to a country fair, and my experiences as a musician and computer programmer to illustrate that if we rely on each other to share our perspectives, then the range of
wisdom we can experience is as wide as we are generous; generous with our minds, our words, our hearts and our ears. It's a bigger picture."
UU Principles: The fourth (A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.) and seventh (Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.)
