    A Welcoming Congregation

    means to be human. ~James Luther Adams

    Brenna Gerhardt

    Our modern world is filled with horrors, and images of the worst atrocities are routinely placed on our viewing screens thanks to advances in technology. But what does it mean to care about the suffering of others far away?

    Brenna Gerhardt is executive director of the North Dakota Humanities Council and a graduate of Harvard Divinity School.

    Sandra Bercier, Ronya Hoblit, Bonnie Palecek, and Karen Van Fossan

    Some of us love Mother's Day. Others of us can't stand it. In a refreshingly honest look at Mother's Day, four soul-friends share the truth as they know it about relationships with Mother Earth, their children, their grandchildren, their elders, and themselves.

    The presenters are 2/3 of a multi-cultural collective that takes on social justice in the context of relationships. Ronya Hoblit is a long-time member of the congregation, and Karen Van Fossan is our minister.

    Liz Anderson and Friends

    Sports are a big deal in many people's lives, involving people of many faith traditions around the world. How do UUs make meaning when we watch and when we play?

    Betty Mills

    A recap of the road no longer taken and the religious journey which resulted.

    Betty Mills is a charter member of the fellowship. She has served on the district board and on the national UUA board, and is the co-author of "Mind If I Differ?", a Unitarian-Catholic dialogue.


    Sunday, May 29


    Spell check doesn't like either of these words, but they reflect the philosophy of UU member Colleen Reinke. She will lay the groundwork of Jesusian Earthism during this service.

    Colleen Reinke has served as our board president and is the communications director for the North Dakota Department of Health.
