"The Path of Least, Most and Middle" 
Reverend Douglas Wadkins
We begin the theme for January, Resistance, with a service that will explore the many layers of meaning that the word may suggest.  What does it mean to be a people of Resistance?  Well, it has implication for our most essential work of seeking the spirit, building community and changing the world.  Come explore how. 
Sunday, January 3rd - Join us for Religious Exploration for all children in Preschool-8th grade in the Library.  We will begin to hone our skills for our "All You Need is Love" musical as we play some improv games and begin to learn some songs.  Amy & Carter Makice and Susan Swaney will be leading the fun!

Resistance is Futile: 
the Annual Science Review Sermon"     
The Reverend Mary Ann Macklin
"Alive Inside" Film Showing  on January 12th 
11-12:30 in Room 210
    You are invited to a showing of the stirring documentary "Alive Inside." IMDB summarizes the film in this way: Dan Cohen, founder of the nonprofit organization Music & Memory, fights against a broken healthcare system to demonstrate music's ability to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self to those suffering from it.
    We are exploring the possibility of collecting unused ipods and other such players here in Bloomington to assist with work similar to that described in the film.  Come see the documentary and find out more.  
For Evening Meetings Please Use Courtyard or Portico
To help insure the security of our building and our members during evening meetings, please use either the Courtyard or Portico entrance, whichever is closer to the room where you are meeting.
