The Long Road of Unitarian Universalism
Rev Leon Dunkley
Summer camp was always interesting, especially way back in junior high. Oh, the fun we had!!! The pranks we pulled back then still rank among the funniest things I’ve ever known…short-sheeting all of the bunk beds in the cabins along the water, hiding the forks and knives just minutes before the spaghetti dinner was served, throwing our senior advisors into the lake at the end of camp. It was so much fun! It was a perverse way of falling in love with life and with each other. The stories about what we did have more than blossomed over time. In fact, our playful exaggerations often get the better of us but still, they deepen the faith that ferries us along. Come learn how time has only beautified who we were back then. Come learn how beautiful we may yet become on the long road of Unitarian Universalism.
This Is How you Say Goodbye
Victoria Loustalot will talk about her book, "This is How You Say Goodbye: a Daughter's Memoir." Victoria is an accomplished writer and "This Is How You Say Goodbye" is a "razor-sharp memoir in which a young woman travels to Cambodia, Sweden and France to overcome the legacy of her difficult and charismatic father…“who died of HIV-AIDS when she was 11 years old. Victoria's book has received rave reviews.
Following the service, Kathy and Richard Lorr will host an informal reception so you can chat with Victoria, buy the book (or not) and have it signed by the author. You may have met Victoria (Ben Lorr's girlfriend) when Ben spoke at our church last year.
