January 18 - JUSTICE IN MY SPHERE.  Reverend Teri Masters, Interfaith minister and Trinity Care Hospice chaplain says:  "Our UU faith calls us to Justice just as Martin Luther King's faith called him.  But the needs of the world are so great.  How much can we be expected to do?"  Penny Hendricks will moderate.


January 25 - GENOME,  The Autobiography of a Species In 23 Chapters by Matt Ridley.  Bob Johnson will present fascinating examples from this book concerning recent discoveries about our genetic makeup.  Bring your thoughts about what we should and should not do with our newfound understanding of the blueprint of a human being.  Linda Klein will moderate.


February 1 - WHAT IS THE UUSC?  Our guest speaker Melosa Granda will talk about the UUSC (the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee.  This really fine organization is doing really good things in many parts of the world and here at home as well.  Educating people in ways to improve the quality of their own lives, how to support themselves; how to better grow their own food; how to maintain better practices for better health.  Beth Perkins will moderate.  (This program was scheduled in November, but canceled due to illness.)


February 8 - YOUR SPIRITUAL AUTOBIOGRAPHY.  Come and learn more about your fellowship friends, as we think about and share some of our own personal journey.  This is part of session two of BUILDING YOUR OWN THEOLOGY.  Ted Doty will moderate.


February 15 - HOW DO WE LOVE?  COUNT THE WAYS.  How do you define LOVE?  What is the power of love?  Is love omnipotent?  Does love ever influence you to make choices that are not good for you? ?  Do you love yourself as much as your neighbor?  Penny Hendricks will lead this program.
