The Verdugo HUUT! presents "beatlesque

7 p.m.

Our celebrated Hootenanny in the Hills brings L.A.'s finest musicians, storytellers, and comedians to our beautiful sanctuary for a night of music and laughs which the L.A. Times recently called "Hilarious!" and "A compelling experience."

This month's theme is "beatlesque" and, in addition to the delightful comedian Jackie Primrose Monahan, the HUUT! stage will feature David Kaufman, Carol McArthur, Deanna Neil, Mitchell Schaffer, Melissa McKinnon, Fogelfoot, Melinda Gibson, and Art Stucco—our biggest night yet. Not only that, but there will be prizes and beatlesque cookies!

And, for the first time, we will have childcare for tots from 2 to 12 (just let us know beforehand at 818-248-3954). See? It's getting so much better all the time.

 

Recommended donation: $10

The Verdugo HUUT! is a family-oriented show for audience members 12 and up.

TMI—Too Much Information 

Guest Speaker: Rev. John Bloom-Ramirez  

10:30 a.m.


With Siri and Alexa at our beck and call, our lives are awash in information. It might even be too much. This sermon will explore the difference between information and wisdom, and some of the frameworks for making meaning out of the surplus of data in our lives.

Saturday, July 28: Monthly Movie Night  

"About Time(2013)

6:30 p.m.

This wonderful 2013 film by the creator of "Love Actually" is an unabashedly sentimental story about finding delight in everyday things if one is attractive, British, and financially stable.

Starring Rachel McAdams, Domhnall Gleeson, and the incomparable Bill Nighy.

This event—along with the popcorn!—is free, but donations are gratefully accepted.

With Liberty And Justice for All

Guest Speaker: Rev. Betty Stapleford  

10:30 a.m.


We know those words as part of our United States pledge of allegiance. But what do they mean outside that context?  And what could they mean to us as Unitarian Universalists. Let's look a little deeper to see them without their flavor of patriotism.  They may just comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.

(Rev. Stapleford spent many years as UUVerdugo's minister and we are delighted to have her back, even for one Sunday.)

Sunday, August 5

Comfort Zone 

Guest Speaker: Cantor Deanna Neil  

10:30 a.m.


When there is loss or difficulty, how do we find comfort? And on the other end, when do we need to push ourselves outside of our comfort zones? Together we'll explore the aspects of comfort and consolation.
