Quilt blessing. Memorial Day Sunday we’ll consider the importance of democracy. People in the Armed Services have fought for it and demonstrators take to the streets to support it. Preparation for this service includes, but isn’t restricted to, the UUA’s 2017-2018 Common Book Read, Daring Democracy by Frances Moore Lappe and Adam Eichen. The message is intended to support our inner spiritual life and encourage public actions. Personally, how do you find connection and meaning right now? Politically, when have you witnessed democracy in action

From social pleasantries to fake news, we see lots of ways people get creative with the truth. This service explores morality and judgement, and the types of untruths we tell––to ourselves and to others. There seems to be a shared moral code allowing the truth to be stretched if it is deemed “harmless.” Is it okay to lie?
Jean-Paul Sartre wrote, “Every day is an opportunity to create and define who we are.” Our relationship to the person who is our mother changes over time. This service honors the experience of mothers who emerge to become someone new.
