Happy May Day

Karen Van Fossan

Karen Van Fossan and her cohorts invite  you to participate in a nature-loving program in honor of May Day and our 7th principle. Feel free to join the artistic expression—or simply enjoy witnessing the process. May Day is traditionally a time to celebrate spring’s renewal. We hope this service brings you rejuvenation.

UU member Karen is a writer, licensed counselor, advocate for children, and recent graduate from United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities.

How We Are Together

Andrea Grigsby and Janis Cheney

We are each part of many communities. Andrea Grigsby and Janis Cheney will offer reflections on being in our UU community: what it means, how we do it, how we might do it differently.

Andrea and Janis are members of the Bismarck-Mandan Unitarian Universalist congregation for 2 and 33 years respectively. They share a strong commitment to our 7 principles and to working effectively in community.



Sunday, May 17

Music and Acceptance of Others

Mark Fogelson 

By intrinsic definition, folk music is just what it sounds like: music of the people. Mark Fogelson’s heart-warming, thought-provoking, and often humorous original songs focus on human stories, emotions, and triumphs. Mark will share his songs and stories reminding us of tolerance and acceptance of others.

Mark has performed throughout Arizona, Minnesota, and North Dakota and will also provide a full concert the evening of May 17 at our church.
