Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Benton County


The second homily in January’s theme of resistance will be, “For the Long Haul,” written by Rev. Emily Wright-Magoon, Unitarian Universalist Church of Midland, Texas.To begin, we ask an important question: What are we resisting? Resisting begins inside of ourselves. We are resisting our own shallow longings to hide from the painful things. We are resisting distraction and numbness. We must try to resist despair. We must also resist the temptations of hatred. It is easy to succumb to hatred in these hours. But hatred feeds off itself. Hatred is a parasite that consumes its host. How do we keep ourselves resilient and courageous for the long haul? How do we keep from dropping back into business-as-usual?

Come anytime between 10:30-11:00 a.m. for coffee and and socializing or stay after the service!

Sunday School is available for children with a Unitarian Universalist adaptation of Jerome Berryman’s book, “Spirit Play” as the primary resource. We structure the morning based on the Montessori approach. As in Montessori, the key elements are the classroom environment and the teachers. These elements free the children to work at their own pace on their own activities after an initial lesson.
