             By "radiating possibility" we can change our life story at any
             time to be better adapted to the magnificent way things are,
             and the world will reflect our changes. What better way to
             start the New Year?

             The UUFA is a member organization of AMOS (A Mid-Iowa
             Organizing Strategy).  AMOS seeks to channel individual action
             into a responsible and powerfully organized force for the
             common good.  In this service, we will explore the October
             action approved by AMOS members and how we can each lend
             support for this action.


        Jan 20  "What Makes You Come Alive?" Speakers: Rev. Kent McKusick
                                             Board Welcome: Molly Helmers, Sara Carlson
                                             Facilitators: Amy Slagel, Ralph Gandy
                                             Accompanist: Anne Kimber (9:15), Cynthia Martten (11:00)
                                             Special Music: Recorder Ensemble
                                             Sound: Sam Wormley

             The Rev. Dr. Howard Thurman wrote, "Don't ask yourself what
             the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and
             go do that, because what the world needs is people who
             have come alive." Possibility lies somewhere in the crossroads
             of "should" and "must." Which road will lead you to your
             calling?


        Jan 27  "A Dip, a Cliff, or a Cul-de-Sac?" Speakers: Rev. Kent McKusick
                                             Board Welcome: Sue Koehrsen, Chris McClure

                                             Sound: Sam Wormley

             Author Seth Godin finds great possibility in the ability to
             escape dead ends quickly while staying focused and motivated
             when it really counts. It's about asking the right questions
             on the road to truth.

             SYNOPSIS
             A number of prominent writers have claimed that Christian and
             biblical ethics were ultimately responsible for the abolition
             of slavery in Africa and the New World. Dr. Hector Avalos, in
             contrast, argues that biblical arguments against slavery began
             to be abandoned by abolitionists themselves because the
             pro-slavery side actually had an advantage in biblical support
             for slavery.  Thus, more secularized forms of argumentation,
             which rested on universalized humanitarian and legal premises,
             became more attractive in abolitionist movements.  
             
             The lecture is based on his book, Slavery. Abolitionism and
             the Ethics of Biblical Scholarship (2011).
