Balance and Harmony

Rev. Leslie Kee will introduce the May worship theme “Balance and Harmony.” This will be a “Share the Plate” Sunday, with undesignated cash in the collection baskets being donated by UU Casper to the Casper Humane Society. Humane Society staff members, along with a few furry shelter residents, will be attending UU Casper this morning, and conducting a lesson for our Religious Exploration children and youth. And, we will host a Care N’ Share Potluck immediately following the service! We encourage everyone to bring a dish to share, along with donations for the Humane Society.

Finding Balance Within The Flow

We live in tumultuous times when the daily headlines evoke feelings of cascading down a torrent of whitewater with no end in sight.  Sometimes our personal lives seem out of control, offering no chance to catch our breath.  How can we find our balance within the ceaseless flow of events?  The eastern religion of Taoism and experience of wu wei may guide us safely on our way. Presented by UU guest minister Rev. Tom Rhodes.

Regrets

Do you have regrets? Regrets about petty crimes toward life, or toward those you love, or about the insensitive things you did or said as well as the kindnesses you failed to perform?  In the privacy of your mind do you indict yourself?  Beyond owning them, guest minister Rev. Jacqueline Ziegler will reflect on what else we can do about or with our regrets.
