UUVerdugo Movie Night: Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 11/9"
Presented with the Canada Crescenta Democratic Club
“How much longer will we have a democracy (or if we even still do)? 'Fahrenheit 11/9' is ultimately Moore’s best film in years because its message is really simple and nonpartisan: get mad about something and do something about it.”

Sunday Service: My Prophet Proclaims My People, A Body.
Guest Speaker: Naia Al-Anbar

Activist Naia Al-Anbar, who helped get supplies and donations from this congregation to particularly vulnerable LGBT refugees at the boarder this past fall, will discuss the influence of Islam as a driving force to her organizing work, and how her particular upbringing as a Bedouin shaped that as well.

Sunday Service: Love Is Watching Someone Die
Minister: Rev. KC Slack

On this Easter Sunday, Rev. KC returns to their love of Mary, Mother of God, for what in a Christian church would likely be a Good Friday service. Join us as we wonder at what we might learn from the Easter story (even if we don't believe it) and consider the role of coping with death in the story and in our lives.

10:30 a.m.

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.

April 2017
This month we will be focusing on several ideas. We are excited that Spring has arrived, we will be talking about Women’s History Month, Earth Day and of course thinking about all the wonderful holidays these next few months.
 
We will be planting a new garden on the side of the church with both tomatoes and milkweed (butterfly plants) as a way to take care of our earth. If any member of the congregation would like to donate pots, plants, maybe a gift card to Armstrong’s that would be so greatly appreciated! We can’t wait to beautify our garden and give a little back to mother earth. 
 
We are looking for “special guests” to come down to the children’s service for between 10-15 minutes to share a story, help us with a craft or just spend time with the children. We are constantly looking for ways to include our adults in our children’s lives and we think this is a great start. Please feel free to check in with Elizabeth or any of the RE parents to let us know if you are interested.
 
Are you looking for ways to share the holidays of this season with your child?
 
Check out books at the library about Easter, Passover and the spring season
Plant flowers and veggies to share with friends and family
Talk with your children about what holidays are, which holidays your family celebrates and special traditions you may share
 
There are so many ways to welcome the season of change and growth! We look forward to sharing how we celebrate as the month moves on.
 
Happy Spring!
 
Warmly,
Elizabeth S. Brown
RE Coordinator
