Summer time no longer means missing the inspiration and connectedness from Sunday mornings at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship and Church.
Summer programs will be a little more informal and will include time for sharing, readings, music, the opportunity to come together for reflection and connection, and of course coffee and tea. Activities for children will be provided.
Many Sunday mornings will include time to reflect on a short piece out of From Zip Lines to Hosaphones: Dispatches from the Search for Truth and Meaning by Jane Ranney Rzepka. This delightful book has short essays “reminding us of the depth and breadth of seeing life through UU eyes.” The author has an amazing ability to make every day events illustrate how life is full of possibilities.
Join them each Sunday morning at 10:30 at the Bismarck Mandan UU Fellowship & Church at 818 E. Divide Ave. in Bismarck. Call the church if you would like more information or have questions, 701-223-6788.

Iphones, ipads, ipods & Thoreau
Dr. Larry Skogen
Facilitator: Janelle Masters
In the mid-nineteenth century, Thoreau “went to the woods” because he wanted to “live deliberately” and “suck out all the marrow of life.” He said he did it because he didn’t want to come to the end of his life to discover that he had “not lived.” Is Thoreau’s experiment replicable in the twenty-first century where omnipresent iConnectors keep us plugged in to a global network of communications and information? And is there anything we can learn from this experiment that matters in this century?
