Finding the Muse to Spark the Hero Within You
– Maggie Fronk, Guest Speaker

Everyday heroes are the change our world needs. Are you one? Can you be? Our task is not to fix the entire world all at once but to stretch to mend that part of the world that’s within our reach. As executive director of Wellspring, the domestic violence services resource for Saratoga County and the sexual assault services resource for Saratoga and Washington Counties, Maggie Fronk strives every day to live this truth. She’ll share experiences that have inspired her along the way.

Maggie Fronk is the Executive Director of Wellspring, Ending relationship abuse and sexual abuse in Saratoga County.

The Courage to Remember
– Rev. Joe Cleveland

Remembering can be an act of courage. It takes courage to encounter again the sense of loss we feel when remembering a loved one who has died. And it takes courage to remember the stories that we’re not proud of, stories about when we, our faith, our country, fell short of our ideals.
Please bring to the service a picture or other memento of a loved one who has died. During the service, we will create an altar to our beloved dead, taking a cue from the wisdom of the traditions of Samhain, Dia de los Muertos, All Saints Day, and All Souls Day.

Forums for Discovery at UUCSS

Discussion Groups – groups organized around a program of study. These groups are led by the Minister or by trained lay leaders and occur throughout the year. They are an excellent way to learn more about Unitarian Universalism and issues affecting today’s world through shared materials and group discussions.

Learning About UU – a two-session class held twice each year that explores the history and meaning of Unitarian Universalism, the seven Principles which guide our religious path, the sources upon which our faith is built, and what membership in UUCSS offers and expects. It’s also a time to ask questions, look at your life’s religious journey, and to share stories of your journey. Participants often learn that others are making a similar journey, and some form friendships that last a lifetime.

Small Groups – are sometimes called Small Group Ministries and are composed of 6 to 8 people who want to share their spiritual journeys on a personal level. Small Groups offer a forum for personal discovery. Contact Rev. Joe at minister@uusaratoga.org.

Check the calendar for more information about these groups.
