February's theme "Creativity"

February 17th, 10:30am. “The Dented Cup” by Rev. Dr. Peter Luton with Sunday Service Associate Kerry Burke. I was mansplaining to a friend how she could respond to a particular challenge.  She put up her hand and said, “Would you, please, stop talking and just listen to me?”  People pay good money to therapists for the healing and clarity that bubble up in us when we are truly heard and understood.   Rev. Luton lives in Bellingham, Washington.  He served at East Shore Unitarian Church in Bellevue, Washington for 21 years, and at the First Universalist Church in Yarmouth, Maine for 12.  He has served on the Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association Executive Committee and it’s Continuing Education Committee, as well as on the Board of Trustees for Meadville/Lombard Theological School in Chicago, Illinois and on numerous local boards and task forces focused on GLBTQ rights, AIDS, Child Abuse Prevention and Civil Rights.  Now, Peter enjoys retirement and volunteers twice a week at the local food bank and with Whatcom County Habitat For Humanity.

February 24th, 10:30am. “Embodying Creativity” — a multi-generational service led by Lynn Sabourin (Director of Family Ministries) and Ariel Hunt-Brondwin (Youth & Connections Coordinator). Researcher and Author Brene Brown said 'Creativity is the way I share my soul with the world.' Through song and story, art and poetry - we invite you to explore and share your creative side with us in this all-ages, interactive and sensory-filled worship experience. Youth and Children ages three and older are all invited to 'stay up' with their families for the whole service and childcare will be available for little ones under three years of age as usual.
