Upcoming Events

Rev. Marti Keller Sunday, April 2, 2017 - 11:00am
Frida Kahlo: A Feminist Fandom

Rev. Marti Keller discovered the Mexican artist and cultural icon Frida Kahlo -- as did many millions of moviegoers -- in 2002 when the Hollywood biopic drama was released. As a film and theater critic, she was captivated by the fine performances and innovative production. And after a lifetime of dutiful adulation of New England Unitarian women heroines such as Margaret Fuller, Susan B. Anthony and Louisa May Alcott, the colorfulness and contradictions of Frida sparked a constant fascination that has taken the UU minister to museums, galleries, street vendors, tattoo shops, and internet sites all over the world. Why Frida and who are our Fridas today?

Her talk will encompass just some of her findings from a year, more or less, devoted to the study and somertimes emulation of Frida Kahlo. Please consider bringing objects associated with your own fandom idols. 

Prior to becoming a fellowshipped Unitarian Universalist minister almost 20 years ago, Marti Keller was a critic, reporter, and editor covering the arts and popular culture for daily, weekly and monthly magazines. She also served as a social justice advocate in the arena of reproductive justice and family policy. Currently she resides in Atlanta, GA and is the minister with the UU Women's Federation, whose mission is to advance justice for women and girls and promote their spiritual growth. Rev Keller is also a published poet and blogger:www.revmartikeller.com

Eric Bannon Sunday, May 21, 2017 - 11:00am
Weavers and Threads

Eric Bannon. When we tell a story, we weave together the threads of our personal experience and beliefs; we express our values, even sometimes unintentionally. When someone hears our story and they are moved or inspired by it,  a little strand from that thread connects the teller and the listener at the heart. We will explore how our personal stories connect us as families and as a community.

Eric Bannan is a musical storyteller whose songs travel the bleak desert highways and lush mountain hollows of the heart. His sound is rooted in folk, driven by foot-tapping funk and seasoned with the blues. More than an entertainer, his mission is to build community with story and song. With over 35 years of performing experience, Eric’s shows are an energetic celebration of life, love and loss.
