Oct. 10 - Rev. Al Ciarcia "The Reproof of Life" The title of the sermon comes from a Proverb in the Old Testament.  The writer is literally telling us that, often, life scolds us for things we think, say and do.  In my opinion, we should learn about this "natural scolding" and, in our learning, grow.

Oct. 17 - Rev. Steve Wilson "Association Sunday" Topic Description:   Today, we will join thousands of Unitarian-Universalists in affirming our common bonds and purposes on Association Sunday.  Come for a Pep Rally on the best of our odd tradition.

A time apart.
Feel the current of change
As the season turns.
Flow with the tide.
Honor the ancestors and the beloved dead
Honor the spirit of the Earth.
Breathe in the cool crisp air
Cross the bridge from autumn
Into the dark of winter.
