A two tiered effort takes place Sunday Sept 29th at the Blue Hills Unitarian-Universalist fellowship. 10:00 a.m. brings Kent Shifferd to the podium in Rice Lake with his message as to “The Future We Can Have”. Professor Emeritus of Northland College and member of BHUU, Dr. Shifferd is well versed in, and deeply concerned over the environmental challenges we now face. His sermon will focus on critical solutions to the global ecological crisis needed and the extensive changes we need to make now in our beliefs, values and social institutions. “This includes the economy and technology if we are to continue as a successful species on this beautiful planet.” Shifferd draws on many sources to describe what a successful world could look like and how we might get there.
A “talk-back” session following the service will consider “What do we do here and now?” and offer time for those attending to share thoughts and concerns. All are welcome to attend Blue Hills UU, located at 230 W Messenger in Rice Lake, and invited to stay for light nourishment and fellowship after the 10:00 service.
A new addition at BHUU is the creation of a “Drum Circle”; a brief first meeting will be led by Brian Rude this same Sunday at 12:00 noon. Together we will beat out exciting rhythms like “Peanut Butter Sandwich” and “Mac & Cheese.” It’s community building and lots of fun!
This “Fifth Sunday” of a month also marks the time several northwestern UU fellowships congregate as one. The River Falls Unitarian-Universalist Society will host representatives from St Croix Falls, Menomonie and Rice Lake at their service 10:30 a.m. located at N8010 HWY 65 River Falls.
