Prine sings, "To believe in this living is just a hard way to go." Our postlude will be Prine's song Angel From Montgomery, a poignant reminder of how tough life can be, but also how it can be transcended in the power of song. Rev. Jobe will share from his own walk with John Prine and might even tell some funny stories.
Born of a virgin as a star shown on his birthplace, attended by keepers of livestock, the Hindu God Krishna has a little to offer a world hungry for peace and love. Also it is a wonderful time of year to present a present to our minister, a little understanding and appreciation. Thank you, Jim Morrison.
We usually think of ourselves as the receiver from sources around us. But we can be a source to others- a source of inspiration and even a little joy. Come find out how.

Join us for our Bring a Friend to Church Sunday Service.
Giving is a blessing. Everything we are carries the potential to do good. We want our gifts to “do good”, for ourselves, for those we care about and for our world. Perhaps there is a source that could direct our giving so that in the end our gifts helped shape hope, joy, peace, and love within our world.

"It is good to remember. It is awful to remember. Remembering makes us who we are and tells us what we value."
What a strange and almost other worldly hour it was a hundred years ago at the 11th hour. The "War To End All Wars," did nothing of the sort and the dream of world peace is tattered and torn in today's world. But there is hope as we remember the best we have known and look forward with hope that the human race will break compassionate, whole, healing, well and right. Rev. Jobe will also bring us a little humor as he remembers the magic he and others attach to 11/11.
Who in our lives has nudged us, if just a bit, to be better people?
On November 4th UUCL favorite Rev. Dick Hood returned from a summer in Maine.
We will celebrate a service combining the Hispanic "Day of the Dead" tradition and the Christian tradition of All Souls Day. It will be a time of remembering, honoring, and, (yes) celebrating. Please come to church with a picture or beloved object of someone deceased that you can share with everyone, along with a brief description why that person was so special. While we mourn our losses, we celebrate the gifts left to each of us. Sadness and happiness both have a place in our remembrance.
10/28/18 Service "Get lit. Stay lit. Get woke. Stay woke. Enlightenment and the journey to one's true self" Rev. Charlie Tyler *Audio File*
Among the many journeys toward Enlightenment is the fabulous path to discovering our true self. Culture and expectations spend decades covering us up. Enlightenment can lead to the wonderful archaeology revealing who you and I really are.
