Time, Talent, and Treasure
Rev. Doug McCusker

Do you expect to be served or do you expect to serve? As we kick off this year’s Stewardship campaign, let’s gather to explore what the Fellowship means to us, and why it is important to generously share our Time, Talent, and Treasure.
To Give of Oneself–That’s Amore!
Rev. Doug McCusker
Worship Associate: Andy Cameron
Adult Choir Performs
Love is the purest form of generosity. It is a necessary antecedent before we can freely give anything that has no conditions or expectations attached. We must step out of our ego into that place of connection where giving and receiving form a unity of purpose. That’s Amore!
A Family for Leah: A Journey through Adoption and Identity
Susan Kosior and Tasha Banks
Worship Associate: Christi Bayha
Susan Kosior and her husband Mike started the adoption process determined to pursue an international adoption. They were surprised to find themselves in an open, domestic adoption after being matched with Tasha Banks, a young African-American woman from Baltimore. Susan and Tasha will discuss the choices they made and share the unique story of Leah’s family.
Spiritual Pathways of the Mind
Rev. Doug McCusker
Worship Associate: Steve Elstein
UUth Choir Performs
This will be the first of a three-part series on Spiritual Pathways. The mind does not show up on CAT scans or X-rays. It is the invisible pilot at the controls of our consciousness. It plays a big part in our cognitive reasoning, and serves as a major pathway to spiritual health.
UUFF NEWS & EVENTS:

Seth captures the rich biodiversity of our planet, while infusing each piece with a sense of spirituality and universal meaning.
