Services in October - Community
Oct 5: "Friendship in the Digital Age" with Rev. Peter Bowden. Today people are “connected” more than ever thanks to smart phones and social media such as Facebook and Twitter. Yet American’s are statistically some of the loneliest people on Earth! In this talk Peter Bowden, a TV producer (PBS Kids projects) and Unitarian Universalist consultant specializing media and community building, will share how we can use the best of both worlds -- online and offline – to create the communities and world we dream of.
Oct 12: “Everything Possible: A Celebration of Marriage Equality in Colorado” with Amanda Udis-Kessler. When the Supreme Court declined an opportunity to rule on Oct. 6th it led to Colorado’s Attorney General declaring the next day that marriage certificates will be issued to same-sex couples in the state. Let’s celebrate our community’s marriage equality milestone!
Oct 19: “Walk a Mile” with Rev. Dana Lightsey. The old adage to “Walk a mile in your neighbor’s shoes” is meant to remind us to refrain from judging others until we know firsthand what their experience is like. It is also a reminder that our compassion grows when we know each person’s story. The theme for this month is “Community”. This service will be an exploration of how we live our faith in the larger community of Colorado Springs and the community of the world.
Oct 26: "Music Sunday"
