Daylight Savings Time begins.  Remember to “spring forward” one hour.

The Twin Heresies of Unitarianism & Universalism – Rev. Greg Chute

Universalism & Unitarianism are two of the earliest movements declared heretical by the Early Christian Church; and yet they have survived. Together we’ll explore how they are similar, how they differ, and why we cling to the name if not the tradition.

Caught Between Good and Evil – Rev. Greg Chute

The world is sometimes seen as a battleground between good and evil. Where does this idea come from? How does it affect our world vision and behavior? How do we distinguish between the two? How do navigate the complexities of postmodern reality and ideologies?

This is Social Justice Sunday. The offering goes to the Dover Interfaith Mission for Housing.

March 25

A Half-hearted Fanatic – Lisa Locke, Executive Director of Delaware Interfaith Power and Light

E. B. White wrote, “I rise in the morning torn between my desire to savor the world and my desire to save the world. It makes it hard to plan the day.” In her reflection, Lisa will enlist the help of some eloquent friends to explore the crazy times we’re living in; the sanctity of nature; our personal sense of duty; and our common struggle “to care…but not too much;…to serve…but not just to ensure survival;…to risk much…but not everything;…to sacrifice for a better world…but not at the expense of a soul.”

Lisa will also set up a table of information/resources on saving energy.
