             What, how, and why we all see or do not see the same things
             offers a startling revelation concerning the power of human
             attention. If we broaden our perceptions, we might awaken to a
             world we've been missing.

             In the Sunday morning service in Kansas City, UUA President
             Susan Frederick Gray offered a vision of Unitarian
             Universalism that charges us to remember two things: This is
             no time for a casual commitment to our faith; and this is not
             the time to think we are in this alone. UUFA members who
             attended GA will share some experiences of GA and how the UUFA
             mission intersects with the broader vision of our faith.

             How do we help our communities move beyond becoming cliques
             that "stick to their single vision through thick and thin?"

             we explore the challenges libraries have faced and as we

             A sanctuary is a place that restores us, replenishes us, and
             nourishes us. In this renewal, we are reminded again and again
             of what is really important. Where might we find it?


        Oct 28  "Sanctuary: Home, Homelessness, and Belonging"  Speakers: Rev. Kent McKusick

                                             Sound: Sam Wormley

             This service explores the tension line between oppression and
             the ability to be truly at "home."" The concept of sanctuary
             embodies the power to heal and transform our sense of
             disconnection from each other and our own selves.
