“Conflict Management: UU Style”
The Reverend Vickie Johnson
Rev. Johnson will discuss how conflict
might enliven a congregation rather than
tear it apart.

Rev. Vickie Johnson graduated from Duke
Divinity School and was ordained in the
United Methodist Church in 1989. She became
saddened when their policies became
something she could no longer support. She
and her partner of 15 years moved to Texas
3 years ago and she has begun her journey
toward ordination in the UU Church.

What are the costs of seeking results
over relationship? Join us as we tell a
story that reminds us that success is not
very enjoyable without love and the spirit
of community.

“Walking Toward Trouble”
The Reverend Jennifer Innis
In so many moments of our lives, it is all
we can do to keep our head down and get
through the day. Sister Simone Campbell
of the “Nuns on the Bus” challenges us to
“walk toward trouble” when others move
away. Why might we step deeper into the
struggles of the world?

July 27
“Inquiring Minds Want to Know”
The Reverend Jennifer Innis
This Sunday is the annual Question Box
Sermon. Do you have a burning inquiry
about religion, ethics, current events
– or something completely different? We
create the message together when you
provide the questions on the morning of
the service and Rev. Jennifer does her best
to answer as many as possible during the
sermon. Your questions also help shape
the course of worship over the coming
year. Thank you for supporting the free
pulpit and the free pew.

Today’s service includes a special
collection for the Minister’s Discretionary

August 3
Dr. Stephen Sprinkle
We welcome to our pulpit Dr. Stephen
Sprinkle of Brite Divinity School at TCU.
Dr. Sprinkle is an ordained Baptist
minster who was named 2010-2011 “Hero
of Hope” by the largest LGBTQ Christian
Church in the world, Cathedral of Hope in
Dallas, for his advocacy on behalf of the
LGBTQ community. Dr. Sprinkle earned
his “street credentials” in direct action
efforts to win justice in the infamous
Rainbow Lounge Raid protests in Fort
Worth in 2009.
