9:30 a.m. – Forum: Cosmos, led by Laura Walizer

Join us for another episode of the critically-praised and award-wining series presented by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson using a storytelling approach to share current scientific knowledge about our world and the universe and the people, fueled by wonder and skepticism, who gave us these theories and discoveries.

10:30 a.m. – Coffee Fellowship

11:00 a.m. – Service: Aging and Relativity led by Ann Maclaine

Our own ages, as well as our ideas about the abilities and limitations of people of different ages, are always changing. The more years we accrue, the less important others’ ages seem, except when we choose to generalize. Let’s consider how we can respect and include people of all ages in our lives and our church.

11:00 a.m. – Religious Exploration:

  • Chalice Children (ages 3-6): Love Surrounds Us: Our Search – The Chalice Children will learn about our principles and their root in love.
  • U.U. Kids (ages 7-12): UU Identity – The UU Kids will explore the people, ideas, and events that have shaped Unitarian Universalism.
  • YUUth (ages 13-17): Merchants of Doubt – The YUUth will watch and discuss the documentary Merchants of Doubt examining pundits-for-hire who pass themselves off as scientific authorities on topics such as toxic chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and climate change.

Childcare is available from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

12:30 p.m. – Lunch Bunch
