Humanism, Being Good & Where We Go From Here
Why is it so hard to be good people sometimes? Do you feel that our culture encourages us to live ethically or unethically? This sermon will look at some of the greats, past and present, who have lived good lives and ask how we can live our lives with a stronger moral compass in a time when true North often feels lost.

Guest Speaker Rev. Kimberley Debus – Hendrix Hall
The Art of Meaning
Art has power to move us and change our lives. But what is it about the arts? We’ll examine the ways viewing, performing, and making art helps us make sense of our lives, our communities, and all of creation. (Kimberley Debus works as a community minister in the Albany, NY area, inspiring congregations to move artful and art-filled worship, congregational life, and public witness. She has previously served the First Universalist Church of Southold on Long Island and One Island Family UU Congregation in Key West. She will be serving us for two months during Rev. Linda’s spring sabbatical.)
