“Unitarian Universalists can believe anything they want to believe.” WAIT! That is not true. Let’s look at our Principles and recognize again the religious demand they place on our lives. Refreshments served.

2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth
4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process
6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

THEATRE DISCUSSION

Sunday, April 10, 3pm, Parlor

Attend the theatre with friends or on your own and join an informed, lively discussion about the play. Our next discussion will be about the play listed below.

Bootycandy is performing at the SpeakEasy Stage http://www.speakeasystage.com/bootycandy/ from March 12 – April 9th.

This unconventionally provocative play by Robert O’Hara is over-the-top and definitely bawdy but thought-provoking. Bootycandy was voted by the NYTimes as one of the top 10 plays of 2014.

The play contains strong language, mature themes and full nudity.
