February 10th: How Much False Witness Can We Bear?
Service Leader: Rev. Stefan Jonasson
Service Coordinator: Odell Havsdotter
According to author Damian Thompson, counterknowledge is "misinformation packaged to look like fact – packaged so effectively, indeed, that the twenty-first century is facing a pandemic of credulous thinking." As barefaced lies have been rebranded as "alternative facts," we may have reached a tipping point in the spread of misinformation and willful disinformation.

February 24th: In My Sanctified Imagination

What is it?
Theme-based ministry is a new way of doing church and faith development that brings Unitarian Universalists together across differences of life experience, age, or beliefs. It’s a way of helping us focus and deepen, both in our spiritual lives, and in our connections to one another.
