This Week at First Universalist
July 25, 2016
This Week's Service
Sunday, July 31
10:00 a.m. Service:   Color My World. We all see the world through our own subjective lens. The challenge for ethical people is to nurture an ever-growing awareness of our own biases, and to police ourselves when sharing our version of “reality” with others. — Summer Minister, Peter House

11:15 a.m. Drop-in Discussion:  Millennials. The Millennial generation—men and women born between 1980 and 2000—are changing the USA. Steve Farrington will discuss the values and thoughts of this rising generation.
