             It's been a long time coming. We've waited to re-gather in
             full strength. And now, here we are. On the cusp. Some of us
             feel broken, others overjoyed, or even scared. One thing for
             sure is that we are resilient. And therein lies our hope, our
             strength, our grounding. Yes, we are coming back. Strong.

             Rev. Dr. Marian Stewart is beginning her fifth year as Sr.
             Minister serving the First UU Church of Columbus, OH. She
             previously served congregations in the Seattle area and on
             Vancouver Island, B.C. She lives in an old house (1881) in
             Yellow Springs (a village with a strong UU heritage) and
             shares space with her dog Fiona and cat Maddie. Her hobbies
             include gardening and anything creative.

             In a year of transition and upheaval, how do we heal from
             profound change and find our way to peace and authenticity? 
             In Unapologetically You, behavioral scientist Steve Maraboli
             suggests that “The beautiful journey of today can only begin
             when we learn to let go of yesterday.”  From another
             perspective, country music legend, Charley Pride encourages
             us: “Don’t be afraid. Just play the music.” Join us for music,
             poetry, and inspiration to move towards healing.

             Albert Einstein is often credited with saying: “There are two
             ways to live your life. One as if nothing is a miracle. The
             other as if everything is a miracle.” In a world of binary
             thinking, how might we seek the healing power and balance
             between nothing and everything?

             There are some significant differences between Thanksgiving
             here and in Tordatfalva. In Romania, Thanksgiving is observed
             on September 30th and is one of the four most sacred days in
             Unitarianism. While we are unable to safely offer a bread and
             grape communion, come share in a communion of thoughts and
             feelings and discover the liberal religious connections with
             our partner church.

             The Wizard of Oz by Frank Baum offers mythical insights and
             illumination on how we embody the journey to come of age in a
             changing and challenging world. Each character personifies
             aspects of the developmental journey we each make as seekers:
             developing our minds and hearts with courage and speaking
             truth to power. We’re off to see the wizard of ourselves in
             this service of fantasy, fun, and spiritual growth! (This will
             be a rewrite of a service I prepared in May 2017.

             This is a particularly powerful sentence from our Generosity
             Team:  "Our budget assigns money to categories like staff,
             building maintenance, and supplies, but actually it's for
             inspiration and friendships and teaching children and
             provocative worship and for changing the world".
