August 13: Facing the Bogeyman

Presented by: Ryan Terry

MVUUF members, Ryan Terry and his wife, are proud parents of two lovely girls, ages 7 and 11.

One of the Terrys’ favorite pastimes is to spend time in nature. The Terrys enjoy hiking and backpacking in wilderness areas where there are very few people. As their daughters have gotten older they have often express interest in exploring nature alone without direct parental supervision.

Ryan will explore this topic further with an emphasis on how nature can teach us to face and overcome our fears, and provide both the young and the old with opportunities to gain a greater sense of confidence and awareness.

August 6: Living as a Buddhist

Presented by: Michael Johnson

Did you ever wonder what it’s like to be a Buddhist? Sounds so exotic! Surely it must be different from anything ever experienced!

Actually it’s very interesting, surprisingly simple, and, for Michael Johnson, the philosophy has provided the most direct path to personal contentment and happiness.

Join Michael in this brief look at a new way to experience yourself, the people around you and even people you may never meet.

July 30: How Much Church is “Too Churchy”?

Some people think Unitarian Universalism is “not a real church” – it’s the kind of criticism that you get used to when you belong to a creed-less faith. But strangely enough, some people check out UU and still feel it’s “too churchy”. Why?

Why do people come to a church like ours? Why do they keep coming, or not? What makes church different from a discussion group, a TED Talk, a Meet up group, a civics course? What elements do people connect with or have trouble connecting with when they come from other religions, or no religion?

Join us as we think about not only what makes church church, but how church and the beloved community relate to one another.

July 16: “Freedom”

Presented by: Julie Merrick

Freedom is state of mind. It is an open door; it is wind rushing against canyon walls; it is birds hanging in flight. Freedom is to feel one’s soul dancing inside one’s body as the illusion of the time dissolves into a moment of infinity.
We find freedom by releasing the mental constructs which enslave us, by letting go of all that weighs us down, by being fully present in the now and by loving in a way that causes others to feel free.

July 2: “The Living God”

What do you think about when you hear the word God? Turn on? Turn off? No reaction? And how does our being human make the idea of a God seem to be a necessity?

Theologians have been at this issue for centuries…let’s see what we can do in 30 minutes!
