“Revisioning Part II: A Story Worth Telling”
The Reverend Annie Foerster
Congregations in our denomination are often referred to as “The Sacred Community.” What makes them sacred is the easy part. What makes them community is often more complicated, because each one has a story beyond its history, beyond its structure. But, complicated or not, nuanced or out there, it is a story worth discovering—and telling.

“Revisioning Part III: Return Again”
The Reverend Annie Foerster
For this series of services, we have been singing the song in the teal hymnal called Return Again. ‘Return to who you are,’ say the lyrics, not ‘return to who you have been.’ What does that even mean? I think it means making choices—choosing one of three options open to you for the future. I’ll give you a tour of current operations, but the choices are up to you.

“A Matter of Public Trust”
The Reverend Marjorie Montgomery
Our heroes, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry Thoreau taught us to be SELF RELIANT! YES!! But the world does not work very well with every man for himself. (Or every woman for herself.) So how may we live with these two contrasting points of view? T’aint easy, that’s for sure. Our guest minister today is the Rev. Marjorie Montgomery. She graduated from Wellesley College, Union Theological Seminary NYC and Perkins School of Theology, SMU. She has served UU churches in Belmont MA, Denton, Fort Worth (1980 to 1990) and Waco TX, Los Cruces NM, Tucson AZ and Nashville TN. She was RE Consultant for the Southwest UUA District for fi ve years and retired in 2001. The League of Women Voters is her current volunteer interest. She and husband Duane have lived in Fort Worth TX. for 38 years. Their fi ve children and 2 grandkids live nearby.

“Living the Question”
The Reverend Samuel Schaal
Most people live within the easy boundaries of the familiar. The poet Rilke suggests that to be truly alive, we must trust in the difficult. This is especially true for those of us (both individuals and congregations) facing an uncertain future.
