Sunday May 19th brings Kent Shifferd, former faculty member of Northland College, to Blue Hills UU, to host the 9:15 Forum and discussion His topic concerns “Justice on Earth”: while the poor, known as “front line communities”, are forced to live with the degrading impacts of industrial civilization, the middle and upper classes reap the benefits. But not the costs. What can UUs do to even the imbalance?
The 10:30 Service, led by UWBC Prof Linda Tollefsrud, calls members to consider “What’s in a Name?” Is it more true that “the pen is mightier than the sword” or that “a rose by any other name would smell as sweet”? How shall we name the sacred? Is it too powerful to be named? Or, is our naming–or not–irrelevant?
Nourishment for body and soul always follows the service with fellowship and light refreshments; all are invited. The Blue Hills Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is located at 230 W Messenger in Rice Lake, and is a Welcoming congregation.
