• Are we to become politically neutered UUs? Because we’re in the throes of another election cycle, now is as good a time as any to review the place of politics and the church.

 “I’m not a joiner.” “I see myself on a spiritual quest.” “I’m a Buddhist.” These are the three most commonly heard expressions for not joining our church. Here’s one I heard several years ago: “One of these days when I get my life together I’m going to check out the Unitarian Church.” My reply was: “Don’t wait that long.” Fortunately, my reply got a laugh.

 Do this at home, but not in thunder or lightening: Run in the rain. Or, walk in the rain. You could work in the rain.

Members here are having heartfelt discussions on the topic of the Covenant of Right Relations. This is good. I hope our membership will be on hand for the Annual Congregational Meeting on Sunday, May 20th. Please be generous in your giving. If you have no financial contribution on record for this year, please call our church office. We need the participation and the commitment of every member.

 Have you thought of something nifty to give to the church auction? Trips, a cabin for a weekend, jewelry, collectibles, gift certificates, a meal that you can cater, outings, and fine art –these are sure winners that bring delight to bidders. I’m offering a sermon topic of one’s choice to the highest bidder. I can be bought at least one time each year –for a good cause. Be creative. See you at the auction, Saturday, April 14th. And bring your friends. The hors d’oeuvres are terrific each year.

We frequently discuss right relationship in small gatherings in our church. Right Relationship is part and parcel of our covenant. What shall be our agreement towards one another? How shall we treat one another?

When I get a chance to watch something other than a news program on television, my choice is likely to be Six Feet Under, a remarkable show that earned the praise from media critics as well as from several in our church when it was first running on HBO.

Happy New Year versus apocalyptic thinking and doomsaying . . . What do you make of the popular films and religionists who promote a belief in the end of all time and preach that current wars and tensions in the Middle East are precursors to the 1000-year reign of Christ? If their arguments were compelling and if they could agree with each other, I would then know whether or not to renew my subscription to Newsweek.

Feeling down and depressed? Let the church help. There. I said it in print. It was allegedly a church newsletter blooper that turned into a joke. Everyone who understands the nature of living in a church knows how human a place it can be –and ought to be. Mistakes abound. It is possible the blooper is urban legend. But never mind. It’s the sort of thing that people say about churches. And if you can’t laugh about the humanness of churches, then we’re all in trouble. Garrison Keillor would surely agree.

Each one of us can benefit from the Leadership Conference being hosted at our church beginning on November 11th. Hope to see many of you here. You’ll enjoy meeting UUs from our district and making new friends.
