May 14, 2017: Mother's Day - Mothering Ourselves

Rev. Joy Atkinson

Self-love was once considered sinful and later psychiatry identified it as “narcissistic.” But loving, caring for and “mothering” ourselves contributes to our own health and the well-being of our society. This Mother’s Day service will focus on how we can “mother,” care for, and even love ourselves. 

May 21, 2017: Secrets and Prophecy

Rev. Tet Gallardo, 2016-2017 Balázs Scholar at Starr King School for the Ministry

At a time that vision is not clear, prophets used to "storm the heavens" asking for a sign. What do transcendentalists do? They emerge from conversations. The Quakers on the other hand, could come up with many answers to one question, during "waiting on the Sprit" as a group. How are we finding answers to the uncertainty of our future as Unitarian Universalists and as global citizens? 

Ordained in 2013 by the UU Church of the Philippines, Rev. Tet Gallardo serves a lively and loving congregation in the Bicutan area of Manila, Luzon Island.  (All 29 other UU churches are on Negros Island, where Philippine Universalism was founded in 1955.) 

For over 20 years, Tet has organized women, youth, farmers, and workers for better legislation, serving with over 30 NGOs.  She’s been a strategy and communications consultant for government leaders and political campaigns. Taking a break from UU church work, she spent March 2016 in Nepal as a volunteer in disaster relief. She is spending this year as Balázs Scholar at Starr King School for the Ministry in Berkeley.
