Verdugo HUUT! #18: Bowie on the Moon



We can be heroes in our hootenanny in the hills! To celebrate both the 50th anniversary of the moon landing (July 20) and the release of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" (July 11), The Verdugo HUUT! is hosting an evening chock full o' starmen, spaceboys, and Major Tom. We may even see if there is life on Mars. The 18th Verdugo HUUT! will feature a larger bill than usual (like our Beatles show last July) and, as always, the evening will be light, friendly, compelling, and filled with coffee, snacks, and prizes. Starring  Tom Bishel, Carla Rudy, Carol McArthur, Mitchell Schaffer, David Kayfman,and other special guests TBA. Hosted by Marty Barrett.

Recommended donation: $10

Show begins at 7 p.m.

Sunday Service: Why Are You A UU?
Congregation Leader: Ann Kleinsasser

 

“This feels like home” is the comment we often hear from people visiting our church for the first time.  Although we come from many different spiritual and religious backgrounds, something about Unitarian Universalism draws us together and inspires us.  Today we hear from several members of the congregation about their spiritual journeys and how those journeys brought them here.

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.)
