December 8 - Letting Go of Chaos, Rev. Sandra Fees
Urgency and anxiety can seem like motivators in response to the chaos all around us. But they actually get in the way. Today, we’ll consider how we can live out of peace and let go of the chaos.
December 15 - The Art and Science of Happiness, Sam Gugino, Guest Speaker, and Randy Newnham, Worship Leader
The word “happiness” comes from the Middle English word “hap,” which means luck. So is happiness merely the result of luck? In “The Art of Happiness” the Dali Lama says we can “achieve” happiness by training the mind. And he’s got the science to back him up. Sam Gugino, a member of the Unitarian Society of Germantown, has been a chef, restaurant critic, food editor and cookbook author. He is contributing editor and columnist for Wine Spectator magazine and editor of samcooks.com, his website.
