Live-Stream from the GA Sunday Service 

Do you wonder what the attraction is of going to GA (General Assembly—the national UU conference)? Are you happy to stay local for church and avoid the Kansas City crowds? Then experience GA 2018 live-streamed from Kansas City on June 24. Sit in the Ellen Hall Room with First Church friends and get a glimpse of the awesomeness of a GA service—always the best and the brightest.

Better Angels Team
Coordinated by Pat Smart and Tim Kraus

Conversations Across the Political Divide

In response to the extreme polarization of our country after the 2016 elections, an organization called Better Angels was developed, with the purpose of helping Americans speak “across the political divide.”  On this date we will have a program presented by representatives of this organization to help us understand what Better Angels is and how their workshops address the challenge of people with divergent views coming together to find common ground. Coordinator David Lapp, and leaders Kouhyar Mostashfi and Greg Smith will share insights about the program and its effect on their lives.

Jef Gamblee

Compassion

This is the third time that Pastor Jef has graced our First UU summer pulpit; this year, with a service theme of compassion. His text is from the movie “The Good Catholic,” an otherwise formulaic “priest leaves the pulpit” film. Sunday’s message offers a challenge, a revelation and an exhortation for Good UUs. Pastor Jef was ordained in New York nine years ago, after having spent over 25 years along with his wife Pat and children Kate and Christopher as a friend and member of First Church. He now lives in beautiful Westerville where he, along with his wife, serve as staff for their cat, Bell.

Our 7 UU Principles:

  1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person;

  2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;

  3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;

  4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;

  5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;

  6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;

  7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
