March 2, “Inclusive Spirit” — Liberation Theology, Black Theology, Feminist Theology, Rev. Dr. Thomas J. Bodie, Guest Speaker and Nonna Randal, Worship Associate
There are so many different perspectives on the spirit, ones that so many have heard of.  So why do so few know of gay spirit?  Rev. Dr. Thomas Bodie is from the Ginger Hill Fellowship and serves as the Clergy at Shady Side Hospital.  This is also be Give Away the Plate Sunday.  All donations (other than pledges) will be given to the Alice Paul House.
Special Music: Matt Baumer, Piano

March 9, The “F” Word: Feminist History & Futures, Laurie Roehrich, Worship Service Leader and Patti Holmes, Worship Associate
Celebrate Women’s History Month.  Explore the importance of women’s narratives in psychology and the sciences.  Story for the Ages will focus on Elizabeth Blackwell, the first female doctor in the U.S., (and a UU, too.)
Special Music: Lori Rittle, Piano

March 16, Music: Peace for the Soul, Patti Holmes, Worship Service Leader and Sara Steelman, Worship Associate
Have you been dragging yourself through this seemingly extra long Winter Season?  Do you feel restless, and discombobulated?  They say that music has the power to make your ills go away, to make you feel more at peace within yourself, to make your SPIRIT (and SPIRITUALITY) soar!  If you believe this, come and join us for the first Music Sunday Service of the year.  Bring your CD, or use the Piano to express the piece of Music that inspires you, and helps to keep your Spirituality at a high point in your life.  After you play it, you can either explain why that piece of music is so special to you, or not.  Just come, and share.
Special Music: Lori Rittle, Piano

Special Music: Matt Baumer, Piano

March 30, Travel, Time and Trends, Rev. Joan M. Sabatino and Patti Holmes, Worship Associate
Rev. Joan returns to our sanctuary this morning after sabbatical time.  In addition, she will have spent this weekend in Erie PA attending the Ohio Meadville & St. Lawrence District Joint District Assembly.    Her sermon will reflect on travel and time, and trends within our UU faith.  Our UU Moment will focus on the annual UU Service Committee Justice Sunday, this year’s theme, “Justice is Planting a Seed.” This theme parallels our Social Justice and RE Programs’ focus on food and poverty.  The service will be followed by a Soup & Bread Lunch.
Special Music: First UU Choir, Jenna Hyatt, Director and Matt Baumer, Piano
