For the Sake of the Song: Songwriting as a Spiritual Path

Steve Brooks. Songs and singing feed our spirits, but where do the people who write them find spiritual inspiration? How is songwriting like meditation or prayer? Austin folksinger and UU Steve Brooks answers these questions and more, while unearthing the hidden link between Oedipus Rex and Mama Tried. He illustrates his ideas with songs by himself and the patron saint of Texas songwriters, Townes Van Zandt.

World Peace

Gene Brown. Let's think for a moment. What happens when we drop a pebble into the water for Joys and Concerns? What happens when you skip a stone across a calm lake? Regardless of the size of the stone, ripples will be created. It doesn’t matter if it is a small grain of sand or a monstrous boulder ripples will form. The more stones that are cast, the more ripples will form.

Rev. Gen   Brown
Sunday, April 14, 2019 - 11:00am - 12:00pm

Rev. Gene Brown. "It would seem that our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mudpies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased." C.S. Lewis

This Sunday we will be exploring the Cardinal Virtue of Love as described by John the Evangelist in the First Epistle of John. In order to show love for others, we must have love in our hearts. Without truly knowing love, how would we expect to show love.

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.


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