Nearly three years ago, Rev. Ann first shared her reflections on boxing and spirituality. She has continued boxing for fun and fitness. This Sunday, Rev. Ann will share her most recent insights. She will be included in a documentary film about older athletes. The Sunday service may be filmed for purposes of the documentary.

St. Patrick's Day is around the corner. For a change, we turn our attention to the Scots Irish. Beacon Press has recently published "An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States" by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz. The author highlights the adverse impact of "settler colonialism" on indigenous peoples in this country. Many of the settlers were of Scots Irish descent (as have been 17 U.S. Presidents, interestingly enough). We will explore complicated religious and economic relationships and power structures with an emphasis on implications for today.
Sound and rhythm play a role in creating the universe as we know it. In this multigenerational service, we will examine and experience the relational nature of sound and rhythm from three perspectives. The three perspectives are ancient faith traditions, the arts, and science. The Multigenerational Ministries Task Group and the young folks in the congregation will lead the service.
Kat Norman, Amy Randall, Tim Ross, Rev. Ann Schranz, and Merri Wise
In addition to speaking on the long rich history of universalism, Rev. Fristad will be relating that the teaching of eternal damnation is not merely a harmless untruth that we might appropriately ignore and allow to stand, but it has serious consequences. It leads to the possibility, perhaps even the inevitability, of wars, bigotry, oppression and abuse. On the other hand, the teaching of universalism leads to equality, respect, love and dignity for all.
Rev. Kalen Fristad has been a United Methodist minister for more than 38 years, is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Christian Fellowship, and is President of the Christian Universalist Association. He retired from the parish ministry in 2013, but continues to travel the country speaking on universalism. Over the years he has spoken at more than 170 UU churches. Rev. Fristad has written a book on universalism, entitled; DESTINED FOR SALVATION: God’s Promise to Save Everyone, and a Study Book with the same title. His books, CDs and DVDs will be available for purchase after the service.
