             There are intersections in the way that artists and non
             artists approach living: What is my art/life really about?
             Where is it going? What stands in the way of my art/my life?
             Creativity is not limited to artists. Life is full of
             creativity. Life is art.

             Mother's Day is a complicated secular holiday that feels
             affirming to many while leaving others feeling excluded. Rev.
             Kent and the UUFA Youth Group collaborate on this service in
             celebration of the wide spectrum of mothering.

                                             Board Welcome: Ralph Gandy
                                             Facilitators: Jan Cook, Kitty Fisher
                                             Accompanist: Amber Anderson

             Buddha described the human mind as being filled with drunken
             monkeys jumping around, screeching, chattering, and clamoring
             for attention. Dr. Scott Kaufman of the Imagination institute
             describes creativity as messy business, because it involves
             the whole brain. Is it possible that we are all
             extraordinarily creative? How might creative growth and
             healing happen during times of adversity? How might we see
             things differently?

             The spiritual teacher David Spangler believes that blessing is
             a natural human act: to share one’s spirit with another. For
             him, an act of kindness is a blessing in seed state. This
             service explores the difference and connections between
             kindness and blessings.

             The Flower Ceremony is an annual UU ritual that celebrates
             beauty, human uniqueness, diversity, and community. Originally
             created in 1923 by Unitarian minister Norbert Capek of Prague,
             Czechoslovakia, the Flower Ceremony was introduced to the
             United States by Rev. Maya Capek, Norbert's widow.
             
             On this Sunday, everyone is asked to bring one flower. Each
             person places their flower in a shared vase. The flowers are
             blessed, and they're redistributed, with each person bringing
             home a different flower than the one they brought.

             What is the “extra something” part of a gift that is
             considered a blessing? Sometimes, the most ordinary gifts
             remind us that love is at the heart of living.
