February Services

2/5/2023 Pauline Nijander – Rehumanizing the Other

It can seem pretty difficult to build Community in a world where society tends to dehumanize the “other” . Is this particular pattern of dehumanization new, or has it been around for a while?  Join us this Sunday as we explore the rehumanization of those who are different from us.

2/12/2023 John DeMasi  – We’re All Like Picasso’s

John DeMasi and the Tuunitarians present a musical service that discusses the history and struggles to create a world where we are all free to be our authentic selves.

2/19/2023  TBD – To be determined. If you would like to present a topic or pose a question, please contact Joan Spengler to get the ball rolling.

2/26/2023  Mark Bernstein  – The Case Against Gratitude

Poets, novelists and self-help gurus tell us to count our blessings…to be grateful for what we have.  But sometimes, gratitude doesn’t work, especially when life is hard or things aren’t going our way. If we can’t draw on gratitude when we’re not feeling grateful, what other options do we have?
