The Pebble In My Shoe

Rev. Michael Carter.  There is a wonderful line from "The Godfather Part 3" that I absolutely love. Al Pacino plays the role of Mafia Don, Michael Corleone, who is the head of the Corleone Crime Family in New York. After much bloodshed (both his father and brother Sonny are now Dead) he longs to become a "legit businessman," but no matter what he does he cannot escape the life of organized crime. In one seen, Pacino's character says, "Everytime I try to get out they keep pulling back in."

This has been my experiece with the teachings of Jesus. His teachings and life have been the pebble in my shoe. I invite you to explore what it can mean to be a Unitarian Universalist Christian and a follower of the teachings of Jesus.

The Spirituality of the Body

Frank Casper. Fall means cooler temps, wool clothing, colorful trees, and football, among other things. But it also means, for many, nostalgia. There is no shame in good memories.

But now the days are short, I'm in the autumn of my years
And I think of my life as vintage wine
From fine old kegs
From the brim to the dregs
It poured sweet and clear
It was a very good year

Three Samurai Cats: A Buddhist Folk Tale for UUs

Lois Cavanagh-Daley. Three Samurai Cats is a Zen Buddhist folktale telling the story of a frustrated nobleman, a greedy rat who loves rice balls, three samurai cats, and their efforts to outsmart the rat! Come and hear this humorous tale, and reflections on what message it conveys to Unitarian Universalists.

The Rev. Lois Cavanagh-Daly will be our guest speaker. She is an ordained interfaith minister and a member of the UU Fellowship of Raleigh. She has served as President Elect, President, and Past President of the Fellowship in recent years. She completed an 18 month volunteer position in June, 2014, at All Souls in Durham.

Flower Communion

Flower WreathRev. Lois Cavanagh-Daley. Rev. Dr. Norman Capek is one of the heroes of our faith. To hear his story⎯to hear it again or to hear it for the first time⎯is to re-create and re-affirm us as people of a particular faith. One writer has said, in speaking of Dr. Capek, "To find synthesized in one man a love of country, an expression of simple,yet sensitive and symbolic beauty, and a dedication in his liberal leadership of his church so firm and enduring that it does not quail before impending martyrdom is so rare an event as to impel one to learn more about his life and works.”

Before his death at the hands of the Nazis, Dr. Capek introduced to his Prague Unitarian Church the flower ceremony he called "Flower Communion." This Sunday we celebrate and memorialize with the exchange of flowers. Please remember to bring a few flowers to exchange with others.
