What Can We Learn from the Secrets of Sloths?
Guest Speaker is Maya Kaup, Gail Stratton is service leader
Join us for a service focused on appreciating nature and identifying what we can learn from animals to make our own lives more fulfilling and fun. Maya Kaup, a graduate student in the Department of Biology at Ole Miss, will be taking us on a journey through her trips to Costa Rica to study the secrets of sloths and the unusual microorganisms that live in their fur. Enjoy photos taken from her trips to the tropics, stories of her sloth-catching adventures, and learn about sloths and how they can teach us a thing or two! In addition, we will be joined by the UUCO chorus for The Rainforest Song!
All of us have many different voices in our head competing for control- the critic, the people pleaser or the rebel- to name a few common ones. Understanding what Rev. Gail Tapscott calls "the community within" can help us become more equipped to participate in creating the Beloved Community in a congregation. Come join us for a serious but fun look at your internal cast of characters.
Please join UU and Vice President of the Mississippi Humanist Association, Amy Craig, to learn about humanism, being secular in the deep south, and how being a UU makes Amy a better humanist. We'll learn more about the humanist movement in Mississippi and how it can spread to our area.
UUCO's annual OPEN HOUSE AND WELCOME for newcomers and new students in town. This service includes music and voices from our Oxford, University of Mississippi and UUCO communities.
We welcome this Sunday guest speakers from the Oxford Jewish Federation. As they share their personal journeys as Jews, we can better understand the significance of the Days of Awe that begin this week. We can join in the celebration and solemnity of knowing that we have the possibility of choosing the paths of our lives. No matter what we have been, we can change and become more of whom we want to be. Bonus: beautiful cello music!
