Our theme for August is Hope

August 2. Jessica Lloyd-Rogers. Hope is a State of Mind. “Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things are going well, or
willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success, but rather an ability to work for something because it is good.” Vaclav Havel

August 9. Leanne Lovie. Finding Something Hopeful, Now! What is Good in the World? In this time of 24-hour news and turmoil, what is beyond ‘doom
and gloom’? A look at what positive things are happening in this moment.

August 16. Sarita Southgate. Hope: Different Religions, Different Meanings. There are many words we think we know all about; look closer, we have much to learn. We toss around the word “Hope.” “Hope you have a great day.” “Hope springs eternal.” “Hope it doesn’t rain today.” We will explore some of the profound meanings of “Hope” as they are expressed in religions around the world.

August 23. Suzann Robins. What Brings You Hope? This will be an interactive discussion so look forward to participating or just listening.

August 30. Jean Adamson. Humanism as a Source for UUs. Religious humanism is one of the primary sources for current day Unitarian Universalism. In 1998, a survey revealed that 46% of UUs regarded themselves as theologically humanist. We’ll explore just what humanism means.

July 5. Jessica Lloyd-Rogers. The Courage to Create (Change). Creativity requires courage. The creative process is not a path paved with pure joy,
but one filled with suffering, obstacles, anxiety, and frustration. Without the courage to proceed in our creations even when overcome by these
unpleasant states, we will remain impotent in our ability to create anything of value

July 12. Carl Siminow and Jerry Schneider. Right Now I Believe.

July 19. Robin McCreery. Exploring Courage. Please join in the discussion. What symbolizes courage to you? Where do you find courage when you need it? When does courage matter?

July 26. Cheryl DeLong. Courage: Standing Up to a Fear So Our Lights Shine Brighter. Join a discussion about how we can reframe our fears and be more
courageous in confronting social and environmental injustice.
