July 1
“Testament of Freedom”
Roy Redman & The First Jefferson Choir
We are planning to sing this wonderful choral piece during the regular Sunday service on  July 1. With words by Thomas Jefferson and music by Randall Thompson, one of our pre-eminent American composers, how can we miss? I first heard the piece when I was a student at UNT, and was immediately drawn to the thoughts expressed, and the dynamic musical setting. It was written in 1943 to celebrate the bicentennial of the birth of Thomas Jefferson, and incorporates words from several of his important writings. It begins and ends with the words, powerfully expressed: “The God who gave us life gave us liberty.” The choir will meet at 9:30 a.m. to rehearse prior to the service. All are welcome join us in singing this special music.

July 8
“A Ritual for Rain"
Sacred Hearth CUUPs
Sacred Hearth CUUPs will be leading a Sunday service and ritual centered on rain. Bring drums, rainsticks, and other instruments if you have them, and join in the fun as we do a working to ward off the summer heat and drought.

July 15
“Be Nobody’s Darling”
The Reverend Annie Foerster
Without a concept of evil, is it possible to be too good? When ‘Have a nice day’ became the social password, some people complained that ‘nice’ was too bland a word. Are Unitarian Universalists in danger of being nice?

July 22
“Threads of Unitarian Universalism: The Ancient Greeks"
The Reverend Annie Foerster
Most people assume our heritage comes directly out of the Judeo-Christian traditions. But a DNA test of our theology would elicit proof that there is a lot of ancient Greece in our religio-genetic makeup.

July 29
“Transactions: Don't Panic!”
Betty Churchman
Douglas Adams wrote about a character named Authur Dent who was going through changes very quickly. Changes in our church community seem to be traveling at light speed. While we are searching for "the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything" Just Remember "Don't Panic."
