Fire Communion

Steve Bowling. On or near the first Sunday in January, many Unitarian Universalist congregations hold a ritual to bid farewell to the old year, and to release it. In the words of Rev. Elizabeth Harding, "The fire communion separates the end of the year from the beginning, helping us to put in perspective the joys and sorrows, the changes and transitions, the ups and downs of the year. It's a half-way point in our church year, but a celebration of the outside calendar’s year’s end and year’s beginning." In a ceremony of the burning bowl, people are invited to write down write down words, or a phrase, to sum up what they wish to release before entering the new year. They then come forward to burn that piece of paper.

Tyrannies and Subversions: Are We As Advanced As We Think We Are?

Rabbi Rob Cabelli.  An age-old story, read critically, reveals a radical, subversive, and universal message about the nexus of gender and politics, as well as tyrannized minorities.  Yet for centuries the impulse has been to read the scroll of Esther as an ethnocentric, fairy tale of freedom and to either approve or disapprove of it on that basis alone.  Regardless of how objectively modern or post-modern we might imagine ourselves to be, we receive texts through culturally conditioned eyes and ears.  We must challenge ourselves to open up to the subversive in our most sacred and venerable texts, or else humanity and its religions will remain their own worst enemies.

Mother Jones performed by Lara Chew

Premiere of Gary Carden’s Monologue “Mother Jones”, performed by Lara Chew.  This will be a first for our Fellowship.  We will be premiering a performance starring two of our most talented members, Gary Carden and Lara Chew.  We have presented many of Gary’s plays in the past but he has never trusted us with a premiere.  I am sure this trust is inspired by Lara’s ability to assume the persona and to speak in the voice of Mother Jones.  Mother Jones was once considered to be “the most dangerous woman in America”.  In the late 19th century, to the chagrin of governments and “Robber Barons”, she rallied coal miners, dock workers, endangered citizens, mill workers, and disabused members of societies, to protest against unfair wages, under age workers, poor working conditions, unhealthy living sites, poor government protection and unwarranted control of civil liberties. We benefit today from Mother Jones’ motivating outcries.

WAS MOTHER JONES THE FIRST WALL STREETOCCUPIER?

Tickets: $15 Available: 828/524-3161, 828/524-6777 and at the door. Proceeds from the performance will benefit the UUFF Scholarship Fund.
