Sunday, July 11, 2010, 10:00 am: "Menu For the Future," presented by a Prairie panel. A project for our congregation’s participation in the Green Sanctuary Program was offering of a Northwest Institute discussion course, Menu for the Future, from January to March 2010. This course allowed participants to learn about modern food systems and reflect on their role as eaters in the global marketplace. The course participants will present the main points of six sessions that considered food from cultural, economic, ecological, health and social perspectives. They will provide selected questions for discussion in smaller break-out groups. They will also provide information on further readings and resources.
Sunday, July 18, 2010, 10:00 am: "Singing Our Peace," presented by Jennifer Friedman. How do we achieve peace in our time? If we truly wish to become the change we want to see in the world, do we not first have to begin with ourselves? Cultivating love, compassion, and kindness within our own hearts, we lay the foundation for right relationship with our families and the rest of the world. Jennifer presents an inspiring musical program with joy-filled group singing and her own award winning music, exploring what it means to be a peace worker today. Jennifer Friedman is an award winning singer/songwriter from Longmont, Colorado who has sung rock-n-roll, reggae, barbershop and even in street theatre troupes. She is currently traveling the country with her 2nd album, “Soulful Warrior,” making stops each Sunday at UU congregations, where she presents musical programs on topics of social importance.
