September 21, 2014 : "You and the Unitary Universal Unfolding"

Joan Nelson, with Rodney Gothelf and Jason Stearns, Worship Associates

Old structures are falling away. New ones are forming.
We still have a chance to play a crucial role in the outcome.
But first we need to get-it about the "interdependent web" thing.
Sub-atomic/molecular/quantum physics isn't as difficult as it sounds.

September 28, 2014: "The Moral Crises of our Age" (Response Sunday)

Rev. Chip Wright, with Joel Gluck, Worship Associate

Robert Reich, an award winning economist, says that we have a moral crisis with 'insider trading, wall streets gambling 
addiction, corporate pay offs and the billionaire take over of our democracy.’ which doesn’t have anything to do with gay 
marriage, abortion, or global warming.   Who’s making those connections and why?  What are your thoughts? 

October 5, 2014: "The Challenge of Forgiveness: Yom Kippur"

Rev. Stanley R. Stefancic, with Bev Munyon, Worship Associate

The Jewish New Year begins with 10 days of repentance. The first two days  are called Rosh Hashanah, which literally means “the beginning of the new  year.” The ten days ends with Yom Kippur, The Day of Atonement.

I acknowledge these Holy Days in their universal religious dimensions. This is  the time of year to do some self-searching, to think about the ways in which  we have fallen short of our own aspirations, and the ways in which we have  hurt others. It is an opportunity to forgive those who have injured us and to  ask for forgiveness. It is a good time to wipe the slate clean and begin a new  year with a compassionate frame of mind and heart, to let go of resentments and grudges in San Rafael.

Stanley retired as Director of Special Projects, Coach, and Teacher at the Hoffman Institute in 2011.
He is Minister Emeritus of the Unitarian Universalist Church, Boulder, CO. A Unitarian Universalist minister for more than 40 years, he has served churches in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan; Birmingham, Alabama; Bellevue Washington, San Francisco, California, Boulder, CO, and Tucson, AZ.

He is currently serving on the Board of the Community Institute for Psychotherapy in San Rafael.
