    Seasons, Cycles and Evolution 

    The  Rev. Gail Seavey; Marguerite Mills, Director of Lifespan Religious Education; The Rev. Jason Shelton; and Ministerial Intern Michelle Pederson
    Our annual spring Flower Communion reminds us that not every transformation is sudden or explosive!  All ages join together to celebrate our interdependence with the rest of nature’s comforting cycles and ongoing evolution.

    Please bring a flower to contribute to the celebration.

    Speaking in Tongues

    Michelle Pederson, Ministerial Intern, and Worship Associate Gail Sphar
    On the day of Pentecost Jesus’ disciples were suddenly able to speak in other languages so that they were understood. Speaking in tongues, the disciples were able to transcend the barrier of language that kept them from interacting with others. What a powerful experience of finally understanding and being understood. We will explore transcending barriers in our own lives that keep us separate.

    Breathing from All Being
    Gail Seavey and Worship Associate Elaine Bailey-Fryd
    We will celebrate Mother’s Day by exploring how many theological dualisms rooted in nouns such as father/mother, heaven/earth, spirit/matter, sacred/secular, God/Creation, or transcendence/immanence can keep us from experiencing  holistic or holy verbs such as giving birth, parenting, breathing, hearing, co-creating, touching, relating or transcending. 
    We will celebrate child dedications this morning. If you would like to participate or have questions please contact Rev. Seavey at gseavey@firstuunashville.org before May 1.

    Religious Education Sunday
    FUUN Children, Youth, Volunteers and Marguerite Mills, Director of Lifespan Religious Education
    Join us and celebrate the rainbow that is our Seven Principles. Worship with us as we share with you what we have done this year. From learning to grow in trust and caring, to understanding our relationships with people we know and people we will meet and all life that shares our planet, to nurturing a reverence for life, to exploring what on Earth a hammer or a hard hat has to do with it! We will also celebrate our graduating seniors, and we will lift up and honor our abundantly generous volunteers who make it all happen.

    And Then What?
    The Rev. Denise Gyauch
    “Before enlightenment,” says Zen teaching, “chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.” And for Unitarian Universalists? What comes after transcendence, after the peak experience or the achievement of a major goal, after the “aha” moment?  How does our tradition help us re-orient ourselves to external and internal landscapes that are and are not the same as always?
