Upcoming at DDUUC

Jan. 3 – Patricia Concannon – The Color of Law
A discussion of the book “The Color of Law” and how it illustrates our forgotten history.
Jan. 10 – Rev. Larry Smith – Human/Nature
It seems that there’s nothing new in “the theology of the liberal church,” as it was called
in theological school. But there is something that has always been there and is still
something new at the same time, reasonable and mystical.
Jan. 17 – Joan Spengler – Bean Soup and Pancakes
It is said that traditions help with cultural continuity. But when do traditions become
questionable, and when should they be considered dangerous? And what is a tradition
anyway?
Jan. 24 – Roger Long – The Inauguration – New Year, New Regime
Let Us Be Hopeful. Maybe the most dramatic change for this New Year will be political.
But spiritual change can’t be far behind, and let’s think of that miserable month of
January as that most spiritual of months, for, like its namesake Janus, we will be
looking back and forward at the same time, better for our past joys and sorrows.
Jan. 31 – Warren Spengler — Accident of Birth — Warren will explore the often-cited opinion that the United States of America belongs to the ancestors of the immigrants who arrived the earliest.

rather than nothing? If you know the answer, please let Rev. Hunter know as soon as possible

Nov. 15 service
