July 21 “To Heal or To Heel – THAT is the
Question! Where Do We Find Our Truth?”
Rabbi Norman Mendel
Standing at a conveyor belt of fact and fiction. Our task is to sort out one from the other- HOW?
Rabbi Mendel is presently serving as part-time Rabbi at Temple Beth El in Glens Falls after fifty years of rabbinic service in the United States and abroad. He has focused on the importance of interfaith dialog and has taught collegiate –level Judaism, World Religions, Biomedical Ethics and Social/Political Philosophy.
July 28 “Transforming Play,”
Let's explore how play can be a spiritual discipline for us, and the playful perspective of a child might help us envision a new path into our own whole and creative selves. Perhaps play can even transform a hurting world.
Eileen Casey-Campbell is a candidate for UU ministry and the contract minister at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Canandaigua. Her heart is pulled by the ways we are called to work, play and love together to build up a world that is healed and whole. After an internship at Albany UU in 2017-18, she is filled with joy to return for this Sunday.
Summer Office Hours Schedule
A reminder that the Albany UU summer office hours have officially begun. They are 9:00 am - 1:00 pm, Monday - Thursday until Monday, Sept. 2. To clarify, this does not mean that your office staff work only those hours for July and August. Tammy still works 40 hours/week or uses vacation time and Sapphire still works 20 hours/week or uses vacation time. Summer office hours means someone
be in the church office Mon-Thurs, 9-1PM, unless otherwise posted. These more flexible hours simply make it a little easier for staff to take time off in the summer, when it's a slightly less busy, if they choose.
Church Administrator, Tammy Hathaway will be on vacation from Thursday, July 11 - Sunday, July 21. She will be back in the office at 9:00 AM on Monday, July 22. Sapphire will cover the office from 9-1, Mon-Thurs.
Our next community breakfast is coming up July 20, 9 to 11. Please sign up on the sheets in Channing Hall to help produce a friendly, nourishing breakfast. We need people interested in shopping on Thursday, setting up on Friday and helping with the breakfast itself on Saturday. We will have a representative from the League of Women Voters this time to offer voter registration. There is a supply of posters in a pocket near the sign up board. If you can take some to post, that would be a big help. Thanks, Carol Butt
