ART SATURDAY WAS A HIT!

Artists sold their works and the Dorothea Dix Unitarian Universalist Community made new friends!

ART SATURDAY IS May 11

DDUUC holds first-ever Art Saturday

DDUUC will hold Art Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the church to coincide with Bordentown’s Spring into Spring celebration. We will display all types of art by children and adults and enjoy live music by our singers and guitar strummers. All that and refreshments too!

We want Bordentown to know that the fourth principle of Unitarian Universalism –A free and responsible search for truth and meaning — can include artistic expression.

Upcoming at DDUUC

April is a busy month with get-togethers by our Book Discussion Group, Humanist Forum and Spirit Circle. There is also a Game Night and Potluck, and Butterfly Garden Cleanup. For details, visit our calendar.

Upcoming at DDUUC

Book Discussion Group will consider The Jefferson Bible: The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth at 7 p.m. Feb. 6. Kelly Hansen will lead the discussion.

Thomas Jefferson believed that the pure-principled teachings of Jesus should have been separated from the dogma and abuse of organized religion of the day. This led him to recast, by cutting and pasting from the gospels,a new narrative of the life and teachings of Jesus, where,according to Jefferson, “there will be found remaining the most sublime and benevolent code of morals which has ever been offered to man. ” Source: Goodreads.com.

Resolutions and science

Rev. Craig Rubano will ask us to imagine that we could talk to our neural networks. “In anticipation of following through on New Year’s resolutions, we’ll look to accessible strokes of insight from quantum physics and brain science in search of intentional resilience-building practices,” he writes. The service begins at 10 a.m. at the church hall, 39 Park St. Bordentown, NJ.
