"Help From Unseen and Surprising Sources" - Jill Raiguel, MFT - 10:30 a.m.
Have you ever met just the right person who told you just what you needed, or reached for the perfect book? This talk is about those moments when the Universe gives you exactly what you need. I explore the extraordinary events and people I met along my path to publishing three different version of my book, Alternative Healing Beyond Recovery. I met folks in airports, bars and even at my trash cans who offered essential help in my 30-year journey to my book.
Evensong Tuesday, 7:00p.m.
Please send me your offerings ASAP but no later than 5:00pm the day of so that I may include them in the order and as usual, your assistance in setting up is greatly appreciated.

If you are presenting a picture or video, please send it to me ASAP at email@example.com

" Desire as Moral Compass" - Rev. Tet Gallardo Minister of the Bicutan UU Congregation, Manila, the Philippines.
- 10:30 a.m.
The first work of faith is to introduce freedom. Freedom is not just the availability of alternatives. Freedom comes from desiring. Desire was never taught to us as a moral compass. Desires had been taught to us as below duties and responsibilities. And even Hitler taught altruism for his own ends. To desire is to imagine choices and often to produce them. Our task is not to desire in secret, but to desire truthfully.
After the service, a Filipino luncheon feast will be served.
