Worship Topics for August 2017
August 6 Facing nightmares and things that go bump in the night
Reverend Heather Lynn Hanson
Bad dreams are hard enough. Bad reality is even worse. The Dream Experts teach tactics to reduce the fear and change the dream. But when that isn’t enough to change reality …then what? Can dreams help change realities? Heather Lynn Hanson, retired UU minister now living in Corvallis, shares some of her dream wisdom.
August 13 Immigrants & Outsiders: A Dream of Belonging
Diane Larson, Worship Associate
Which barriers do immigrants face in feeling welcomed to the U.S.? Why do other groups of people feel like outsiders, as though they can’t find a place in our society? What does it take for people to feel at home, as though they belong? How can we UUs in particular make a difference? Join us as we explore these increasingly relevant questions.
August 20 The Healing Power of Dreams or “Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream!”
Alana Graham, Worship Associate
What do dreams mean? Where do they come from? Can we heal ourselves – and the world – with our dreams? Alana will share some strange and healing dreams and encourage us to dream our own.
