Touchstones with Rev. Mary Grigolia

TouchstonesOct 5 – Touchstones: What are your deep experiences of being part of something larger than your individual self that also lifts and celebrates who you are? Perhaps hidden touchstones that support your faith in Life. We explore the 1st source of Unitarian Universalism: Direct experience of transcendence that affirms that all is one. Service led by Rev. Mary at 10:30 am.

Workshop: What are YOUR personal stories, your touchstones? What experiences gift you with faith in life? What touchstones will you share? We’ll listen to each other’s stories. And explore what they have in common and how they differ… And what it has to do with UU’ism.  Join us after the service for a finger-food potluck and this insightful workshop.

Below, you will find some reading to introduce you to the background subject about which Tricia will be speaking on Sunday.

Do you agree there has been a growing division between the upper and lower class in the Firelands area? What can be done to help bridge this gap?

The Times article (Excerpt)
“Putnam’s Times article discussed the loss of connection and community and the widening divide between the privileged and the poor, and created much discussion in Port Clinton. Many of Port Clinton’s civic and education leaders responded that the portrayal was in some ways unfair, in particular the Times’ lead photo of the demolition of the old middle school, as the middle school has been replaced by a new middle school.”
