October 1 – I’m On My Way!

What better Disney movie to discuss our third principle, acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations than Shrek? Join us as guest speaker and musician, Kiya Heartwood explores these themes from a the green anti-hero’s perspective. Fairytale characters and a tyrannical, narcissistic king with tiny hands—errrr, I mean a tiny, tyrannical, narcissistic king— all play a part but it’s the ogre, Shrek, who takes center stage to show us what it means to accept and encourage one another.

Children and Youth start in the Great Hall. Nursery and Pre-K care will be available.


October 8- Learn Me Right!

Rev. Rost will take a look at our second principle, justice, equatity and compassion in human relationships through the complicated family dynamics of the Dunbroch Clan. Being human is complex. But we always have the chance to make it right.

Children and Youth start in the Great Hall. Nursery and Pre-K care will be available.


October 15 – How Far I’ll Go

Many of us can empathize with Moana who is told there’s only one way to live her life, one belief to hold. But she dares to live out our fourth principle, a free and responsible search for truth and meaning, and shows us that we can do the same.

Children and Youth stay in the Great Hall. Nursery and Pre-K care will be available.


October 22 – Circle of Life

Here, we share our annual service that people love or hate.: the Blessing of the Animals in October, in honor of St. Francis of Assissi who is celebrated this month. And of course Simba and Pumbaa and Timon from the Lion King all help share the importance of our seventh principle, Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. And did I mention it’s Blessing of the Animals???? So bring your favorite non-human animal for a special blessing!! As always, there will be an animal free zone for folks who are allergic or nervous around animals.

Children and Youth stay in the Great Hall for an intergenerational service. Nursery and Pre-K care will be available.


October 29- A Bug’s Life

What can a band of misfit circus insects teach us about our sixth principle, the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all? Plenty, as it turns out! Join us as Rev. Nori shares how it takes all of us working together to bring about peace, liberty, and justice for all.
