“Whose Are We and Where Do We Go From Here?”
Rev. Amy Brooks
We all seekers but what we want may be different and how we get there may look different. How do we “herd cats” into community? Join me for a reflection on whose are we and where we go from here?

“A Change of Heart”

Rev. Amy Brooks
Sometimes we have an “aha” moment, ” or a change of heart” that causes us to change our lives. Join us for a reflection of how we change our hearts and our lives and how it relates to this month’s theme of perseverance.

UU Fellowship of Lake Norman
“Community Connections Potluck Brunch”
We are trying something new! Bring some food, family and friends to share a time of conversation and connection. We will extend our connection to the wider community by bringing an offering for the Mooresville soup kitchen–they need hot-pack hand/foot warmers, gift cards, and regular size shampoos and lotion. Join us and get connected!

University Gathering
“Considering Lent from a Place of Privilege”
Rev. Mary Frances Comer
Lent is a time during which some Christians commemorate the 40 days that Jesus spent fasting in the wilderness. Observing Lent involves “sacrificing” something for 40 days as a sign of devotion or commitment to one’s faith. Today we acknowledge the relationship between sacrifice and privilege.

“Reflections on India”
Rev. Amy Brooks
India, where to start? Gandhi, Colonialism, the Environment, Spirituality, the Caste System, the list is long. Come explore with me and if we have a way to show pictures (a computer & screen anyone?) that would make it more fun for everyone.
