In Bryant’s last time in the pulpit at The Fellowship, he’ll lead our traditional celebration of those who father us and of our green and blooming friends. He may well have a few parting thoughts and wishes too.
Speaker: Rev. Bryant Brown
Join Rev. Bryant Brown and our Director of Lifespan Faith Development, Lizzie Vena, as we celebrate another great year of programming at TPUUF. We will unveil the artwork of our young people as we kick off our annual Art Show. We will share highlights from our Children’s Faith Development and Youth Group programs as well as Adult Faith Development. As our program year winds down, it is time to recognize and thank our fabulous volunteers as well. This is also a time to celebrate and reflect on our individual and collective journeys of faith development. It’s a very UU question: What do you believe? Some think it’s anything they want to. Or is it what you have to? Rev. Bryant Brown will explore these questions.

On this Mother’s Day, in addition to our celebration of the ones who mother us, let’s look at families and how words and actions show how important are they to us.
The obstreperous Pete Seeger and other Unitarian Universalist troubadours will be much of the music we’ll share at this annual celebration. And, we’ll all welcome new members and be part of a child dedication! While we’re at it, let’s look at the symbolism attached to that happy ceremony.
On this traditional Tax Day we’ll consider what a budget, income and spending and who pays, say about us, a family, an organization, a nation.
The Hebrew Bible gives two contrasting versions of the first human. We have inherited at least two, sometimes-competing natures; surely worth our reflection.
Ever baked bread? It’s about rising and rising again; a timely topic for this Easter gathering.
Perhaps there are lessons in a pharaoh’s dream of seven years of business, business, business as usual followed by seven years of famine – lessons for individuals and for nations.
