Local Recycling

Today we welcome Julie Moore, who works with the City of Shorewood recyling program. She will talk to us about how the program works, how we can help make the process run smoothly, and she'll share the story of what happens after our recyclables are picked up in the big trucks.

Water Ceremony & Welcome

As has been our tradition for a decade, we will start our new season of programs with a Water Ceremony. The Water Ceremony is a great way to reconvene after summer break. For those who may not be familiar with this annual tradition, members and friends bring to the service a small amount of water that represents something of significance for them.  One by one the water is poured into a larger bowl. This is more than a “what I did this summer” report but represents a re-gathering of our community.

Expanding End-of-Life Options in Minnesota

On April 5, Hawaii became the seventh state to authorize the practice of medical aid in dying for terminally ill adults. Eighteen percent of the U.S. population now has access to this end-of-life option. Twenty more states, including Minnesota, have introduced similar legislation. As public support grows, communities of faith have the opportunity to engage in this important conversation.

Finding Balance: Looking back

April's theme is balance. And for today's program, we'll consider how our current definitions of Unitarian Universalism balance (or don't balance) with the greater history of this religion. Lake Fellowship member Tim McGlynn will condense this complex and intricate history into an unpretentious timeline of the fundamental events that bring us to today, complete with hand drawn cartoons and colorful commentary.

Finding Balance: Letting it Go

April's theme is Balance. Throughout this month, we'll explore what balance is, how to achieve it, and why sometimes it's not worth seeking. 

Today's program, lead by Marnie Karger, will focus on when to strive for balance, and when it's best to let it go. It will include discussions as well as a guided meditation by Matthew Tift.

Finding Balance: Growing Roots & Branching Out

April's theme is Balance. Throughout this month, we'll explore what balance is, how to achieve it, and why sometimes it's not worth seeking.

For today's program, we'll use our new vocabulary to stretch and test our definitions of and biases about balance. Lead by Marnie Karger, this program will include thought-provoking questions for discussion, and an invitation to dig deep into how balance exists in your own life.

Copies of the optional homework/worksheets are attached.
