May 8 ~ A Wild and Precious Life ~ The words of Mary Oliver inspire a personal narrative sermon that introduces Kent McKusick and shares stories from his spiritual journey that led to Unitarian Universalist ministry and UUCF.
May 29 ~ Theology as a Vehicle For Holy Work ~ This service is a reflection on how a personal theology might develop and exist as a set of principles, beliefs, and values to navigate the gift of living as we journey towards the mystery of what lies beyond life.
On Sunday, May 1st, Reverend Tobias Paddock will present Part one of a two part sermon, The Power of Good – The Historic Perspective. Starr King UU Fellowship Choir (Plymouth, NH) will perform. Please give them a warm welcome.
Don’t forget your rakes and gloves on Sunday! After the service, we’ll be doing our Spring outdoor clean up. Remember, many hands make light of work.
A note from Cindy Taylor:
The last month or so I have been waffling back and forth as to whether or not we should go forward with the farmers market this year.
A week ago I sent out a notice to all our past vendors and supporters asking for a commitment to our market, by April 25th, for the 2011 season. Only bakers, wool producers, and musicians have committed. We can’t have a market without food!
Without the WIC coupons this year, many of our vendors are deciding not to sell in Franklin. Our biggest veggie and fruit vendor, Suroweic Farms is creating a CSA at their farm instead of coming to our market this year. The Wheelers and Mountain Farms will not be there either.
Sad to say, I think we probably will not have a market this year. There are still few days left for people to sign on. I want to make a decision and give the vendors an answer by April 30th.
I welcome any input from the congregation. Sincerely, Cindy
