“Blessing of the Animals”
The Reverend Annie Foerster
Once again we will honor our pets and beloved companions by inviting them to church for a blessing. They, in turn, by their presence will bless us all. Here are the rules for bringing live animals: 1.All pets except dogs and large animals (horses, goats, etc.) must be secured in a cage, aquarium or other enclosed structure. 2.All dogs must be on a leash, with an adult on the other end (don’t worry they all think someone else lives here and is the alpha dog; they will behave). 3.All large animals must be securely tethered outdoors in the back parking lot. Please let someone know before the service about any large animal. 4.If you can’t bring your pet, or want the blessing in memoriam, bring a picture or a stuffed cloth representative. 5.There will be dog, cat and bird treats available, but if you can, bring your pet’s favorite treat for the blessing.

“Love is the Doctrine of this Church”
Member Led Service
Join us for a hymn festival based on the theme of our Affirmation, which we say together in worship each week. We will sing hymns and share readings to reflect on each phrase of the covenant. The words of some of the hymns we will sing are contributions of our poets and theologians, and the music will include some of the most enduring hymns of our tradition.

October 21
“Threads: Ideas from the Goddess”
The Reverend Annie Foerster
As we explore the tapestry of Unitarian Universalism, we discover ancient ideas and values as well as new ones. We’ll look at a time when those who could bring forth live were considered divine. The Goddess spoke and wisdom reigned.

October 28
“Values: Connection”
The Reverend Annie Foerster
There are four values that members of First Jefferson Unitarian Universalist Church have considered primary in living out their lives. They are Hope, Joy, Awe and Connection. We’ve already looked at Hope. This week we’ll consider Connection. Annie would appreciate your comments on what this value means to you.

November 4
“Love is the Doctrine of This Church”
The Reverend Annie Foerster
A new member recently asked what the first line of the church’s affirmation really meant. Considering it probably means different things to different people, I asked her to help me figure it out. Four of us, then, will confront this important question?
