Please join us as Lake Fellowship welcomes Shawn Otto. Shawn Otto was the screenwriter and co-producer of the film “House of Sand and Fog” which garnered three Academy Award Nominations. He is author of “Sins of Our Fathers”, “Fool Me Twice: Fighting The Assault On Science In America” and “The War on Science: Who’s Waging It, Why It Matters and What We Can Do about It” (Milkweed Editions, 2016). He gives an astonishingly broad range of facts, trends and history to make the case that scientific advances in public health, biology and the environment are being resisted or rolled back.
Join award winning UU singer/songwriters "the DeMasi Brothers" as they bring alive UU values and principles through story and song. With John on fiddle, Joseph on guitar and harmonies that have been compared to Simon and Garfunkel and the Everly Brothers these identical twin brothers will have you clapping and singing along for a presentation that is insightful, entertaining and one you won't want to miss.
As has been our tradition for nearly 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.
Please join Marnie Karger as she leads a group discussion about how we can quest for racial justice. As a predominantly white congregation, we are, by default, members of the oppressive class in our culture. How then do we help solve the systemic and institutionalized problem of racial injustice? We'll discuss matters that pertain to our fellowship specifically as well as those that affect the larger UU community. This is the second part of a two-part discussion between this Sunday and last.
This marks our final formal gathering of the season. We'll host a talent show open to anyone and everyone, and we'll conclude with a potluck cookout. Bring your smile, your talent, a dish to share, and something to grill.
Members, please plan to stick around after the potluck for our annual Lake Fellowship Meeting.

Member Zoe Larson will share with us stories and photos from her recent trip to China with her immersion classes at Orono High School. She'll focus her stories on our monthly theme of inspiration.
Author Mary Morse presents her new book, Wonderful Without Religion.
Reason is on the rise. Americans--especially the millennial generation--are turning away from religion to atheism, humanism, and other forms of secular thought.What do freethinkers want? What does a less religious world look like? Wonderful Without Religion posits that life will be better for more people when we walk away from our ancient faith traditions. Join the author and take part in a lively discussion on the possibilities and perils of a secular future.
Join us for our annual celebration of the Spring season with a potluck and fellowship as our main events. Add to the sign-up sheet on the bulliten board to bring food for this day.
Join member Marnie Karger on an exploration about inpsiration. What is it? How are we inspired? Why do we value and often rely on inspiration? What do we do when we are inspired? How can and do we inspire others? All are encouraged to come with a story about a time when you were inspired and/or a time when you inspired someone else.
