May 2 – Discussion – What Comes Next? “Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. We can choose to walk through it, dragging the carcasses of our prejudice
and hatred, our avarice, our data banks and dead ideas, our dead rivers and smoky skies behind us. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world. And ready to fight for it.” Michele Casella Collier
May 9 – Kirsten DeLuca – “Mother” Nature. Transcendentalism is a spiritual movement and point of view that is much like Unitarian Universalism, as it focuses on the independence on the thought and mind. Transcendentalism relates to being “born” and viewing the world in different ways which are less materialistic and more nature-based. As Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
May 16 – Roger Long – Virtual Art Show. One positive thing about 2020, it stimulated our creative juices, as in all trying times. May 16 is the opportune time to share with us how it affected your creativity. It can be in the form of a song, hymn, poem, collage, montage, drawing, sculpture, to mention
just a few forms art expression takes.
May 23 – Rev. Larry Smith – To Be or to Do? Unitarian Universalists often wish to be people of action rather than people of contemplation, yet both are important and are necessary for our free faith. What is the difference between Meaning and Purpose?
May 30 – Warren Spengler – Truth in Aging: A baby boomer looks at getting older.
