Fact or Fake: Sifting Truth From Fiction 

Guest Speaker: James Underdown

10:30 a.m.

In this age of allegations of “fake news,” viral posts on social media, and increasingly polarized public opinion, how do we decide what to believe?  How do we avoid the echo chamber effect of listening only to those we agree with?  What are some of the ways we all get things wrong?  James Underdown, Executive Director of the Center for Inquiry-Los Angeles and contributor to Skeptical Inquirer and Free Inquiry magazines, will explore these questions this morning.

Autumn is here! 

 We are excited to celebrate the changing of the seasons and thinking about the way in which many cultures and religions celebrate the holidays.  Below is a beautiful UU poem about Autumn arriving and the excitement of change… we will be reading this poem and other beautiful literature to our children as we shift into the next season. Meanwhile in the RE program, we have been working on our “7 Principles Book” where the children are welcome to draw, write or think about what the principles mean to them. It has been exciting to hear their ideas and their questions about the UU faith.

I am working closely with the RE committee and Rev. Gordon on our curriculum here at UUCVH! More information to come soon! Wishing everyone a wonderful month filled with warm jackets, warm drinks and the warmth that this season brings!

 Warmly,

Elizabeth S. Brown

RE Coordinator
