Program: “The Morals of Climate Change”

Ruth will speak to us about the morals of climate change. Her presentation is adapted from an essay by Marilyn Sewell, pastor emeritus of First Unitarian, Portland. The Rev. Sewell is a longtime activist on the Portland scene and probably is owed credit for helping create The Angry Grandmas and other like groups.

The Rev. Dr. Marilyn Sewell is an accomplished Unitarian Universalist minister, and a respected writer, leader, activist, and speaker. She teaches on the adjunct faculty of Maitripa, a Buddhist college in Portland.

Carol’s Words of Wisdom Collection

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?’ (Martin Luther King Jr.)

Do you have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. (Winston Churchill)

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. (Confucius)

Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may
fear less.

UU humor

A Unitarian Universalist dies, and on the way to the after-life encounters a fork in the road. The left path has a sign “To Heaven” and the right has a sign “To a Discussion about Heaven” Without pausing, the UU turns right.

A traveler couldn’t find the local Unitarian Universalist church. After looking in the center of town, in the suburbs, and out in the surrounding countryside. the traveler asked a farmer “Am I too far out for the UU church?” The farmer’s reply: “Nobody is too far out for them.”
