“Resurrection As Symbol”
Rev. Phil Sweet
As a literal belief the doctrine of the resurrection of the body is to me the most implausible of all the major Christian doctrines. The belief undermines the senses, undermines science, personal judgment and is terribly damaging to the intellectual integrity of religion. The story of the resurrection stands as a testimony to the irrepressible optimism of the human spirit. It points to self-affirmation of the power of life to continue to find meaning in the midst of death and tragedy, the eternal yes to hold the bible accountable to life.
Phil is a regular speaker for us. He’s a retired UCC minister.

"Bringing Earth Day Home"
" This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day. As we mark that anniversary, we can honor the Earth by making our personal places more friendly for our fellow creatures. This presentation explores ways we can do that."
Jim is the director of our local environmental center.
"Angels Who Have Forgotten"
About his sermon, Tony says: "I once came upon an article by someone who almost died in a hospital but who, through the help of friends who came to visit, pulled through. She came to feel that each gesture they made for her was almost miraculous, but she also knew that they didn't see what they did as anything special. They couldn't see what a gift they had given. She concluded that it was 'as if they were angels who had forgotten.'
"I was struck by this expression and immediately thought: What an interesting way to see the people who have nurtured us--as heavenly beings, who give without knowing how miraculous and divine they really are. I also realized, from what I had learned while working with Lakeshore UU Fellowship, that this UU congregation is--to a great extent--an example of 'angels who have forgotten.' Thus this topic seemed perfect for my service with you on the 26th."
Tony is a retired UU minister.
