Sunday Service: To Boldly Go
Guest Speaker: Amy Starbin

"Star Trek" has always been a thoughtful sci-fi franchise, from the original series' civil rights allegories to the New Agey musings of "The Next Generation" and beyond. Though Gene Roddenberry considered himself an atheist, the show's open-minded humanist worldview overlaps nicely with the seeking spirit of Unitarian Universalism. Join self-avowed Trekkie Amy Starbin on a brief exploration of how the Seven Principles "interface" with the ethics of Trek.  
10:30 a.m.

Pennyroyal Players Romp through Both the American Revolution And UUVerdugo

Politics matter to Unitarian Universalists, and we are unafraid to stand up for our beliefs, even if it means risking the wrath of our colonial oppressors, the fearsome British.

Last Sunday the UUVerdugo stage was graced by the Pennyroyal Players, directed by Anne Destabelle, center, who provided us with an hour of songs and recitations from the works of Abigail Adams to Francis Scott Key to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Employing traditional dress as well as a hybrid of modern and period instruments as well as dance, the Pennyroyal Players have presented accessible and engaging entertainment across the country for two decades.

(In addition to being a place of spritual searching and reflection, UUVerdugo keeps the lights on as a community center and fine performance space, too.)
