02/19/2017: Bending the Arc 🗓 🗺

10:30am-11:30am, KUUF sanctuary, Reverend Carol McKinley – Theodore Parker, the 19th Century Unitarian minster and fervent abolitionist wrote, “I do not pretend to understand the moral universe; the arc is a long one. But from what I see it bends to justice.”

Today, perhaps more that ever, the arc needs some help from each of us, working to bend it in our communities and in our nation.

Our speaker, Rev. Carol McKinley is an affiliated community minister with the Olympia UU Congregation, where she coordinates its Faith in Action Ministry.  She also serves on the Pacific Northwest District Board of Directors and its Healthy Congregations Team.

02/12/2017: Sacred Economics – Living the Gift 🗓 🗺

If you read the newspaper it can seem that “buying and selling” run the world these days. But churches, public libraries, free medical clinics, and non-profits everywhere are expressions of a radically different kind of economics: the economics of generosity. What can we learn from human cultures around the world, and from some thinkers in our own culture, about the power of gift?

12/11/2016: Healing and Forgiveness
