Sunday November 2nd - 9:30a and 11:00a 

The Tao of Relationship - by Rev. Mike Morran

Taoism is all about being in harmony with the world around you.  We’ll explore this in terms of giving and receiving.

This Week

This Sunday's Giving in Action will be going to Inspiring Connections Outdoors. Inspiring Connections Outdoors ensures that economically challenged youth discover the outdoors through trips that include hiking, biking, camping, skiing,and river rafting. For over 20 year the organization has helped underprivileged youth gain knowledge of the outdoors and conservation and has helped participants gain independent living skills. Many of the youth have gone on to college and then returned to help lead trips for the organization.

First Unitarian Long Range Plan needs YOU!  The Long Range Planning Team will conduct community forums to discuss the plan, its process and recommendations, answer questions and receive comments on October 26 and November 2 after both church services.  You can find the LRP draft on the church website.   

(thanks to Brad Silsby for the post) - Did you notice the Eco-Justice table in the community room on Sunday with magazine & dvd handouts and a sign up sheet? Stop by again this Sunday, November 2nd after the services and get on an email list for coming events!

Making a Difference

 

The Reason We Connect

Q: What are some of the reasons that you have become connected to First Unitarian Society of Denver?

Patrick C. - My goal as a Leadership Development Committee member is to assist in the process of identifying and encouraging new and ongoing leadership in our congregation. As background, I have been an active member of First Unitarian for over 20 years. I have served on a number of First Unitarian committees, been an RE teacher for many years when my sons were younger, and I am now completing my third year on the Board of Trustees.

"In war, truth is the first casualty."

                          -Aeschylus

Here in July of 2014, the news is dominated by war. War between Israel and the Palestinians, war in the Ukraine, war in Nigeria, war in Syria, war in Iraq, war in Afghanistan. NBC Nightly News last week headlined their coverage of Central American refugee children as, “War on the border,” making truth a casualty even in the absence of war. (Refugee children seeking safety and asylum most emphatically do NOT constitute a war.)

There Is A Unity That Makes Us One?

Thou art a man. God is no more.
Thy own humanity, learn to adore.
