The Sacred In the In Between @ BUUF
Sep 25 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

In their message for this Sunday, “The Sacred In the In Between,” Drs. Sandy and Larry Feldman will explore how the work of the existentialist philosopher/theologian, Martin Buber (I and Thou) has influenced their practice of psychotherapy. Additionally, Dr. Clark Gilpin will share a piece titled “Martin Buber and the Experience of the Self” in which he explores how Buber’s though has influenced the way we think of ourselves. If you are the kind of person who likes the big questions that Life presents us with such as Who am I?…How can I best participate in Life?…etc., this may be a service for you. We will also have an interesting and timely message for the kids and a lot of great music. Join in person or on Zoom. All are welcome!

Hebrew Wisdom Workshop – Nov. 18th Date POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER @ BUUF
Oct 21 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

The eight-session “Wisdom from the Hebrew Scriptures” multigenerational workshop will take place on the third Friday of every month from 6:30-8:00pm. The first session will be conducted on Friday, October 21st inside the BUUF Sanctuary.

 

This will be a fun, relaxed workshop led by our beloved minister, Rev. Jim McConnell, with assistance from Brett Maccani, DRE and former DRE Joanne Krettek. In each session, we will review and discuss a particular story from the Hebrew Scriptures. The first session will focus on David & Goliath, with a theme of “courage.” Courage also happens to be our Sunday services theme this month.

 

Activities and discussions will be appropriate to all age groups. During the breakout group activities, you will have a choice of analyzing the story through discussion, dramatizing a modern-day David & Goliath story or making stone art with the theme of “five things that will give me courage.”
All BUUFers are invited to attend. Please feel free to invite friends and family members to participate as well.
