Sunday Service: "If I Had a Super Power..." @ Berrien Unitarian Universalist Fellowship
This Sunday, May 26th is Super Power Sunday. Rev. Jim McConnell’s sermon is titled “If I Had a Super Power,” in which he will reveal his super power.  Nico Rojas, David La Fleur, and Ellen Higdon will imagine with us what they would do if they had a super power. Gloria Weberg will be leading us in the Fabric of Life Ceremony, and Oliver and Lois will help us open the service. Terry Sundstrom will read the Story for All Ages. Janice Zerfas will bring us a poem. Beth La Fleur will be on the piano, and the BUUF Musicians will bring us a musical number.
This may sound like a jokey topic. It is not. How would you change the world if you had a super power? There will be a time in the service when anyone attending can share their own super power.
Come, share, and maybe change the world a bit.
What if each of us already possesses a super power?

Geri Schrab, author and artist, returns! Speaking of her artwork of rock art (petroglyphs and pictographs), she says:

The painting gives me balance, it gives me voice. This is how they weave together, my court reporting and painting rock art. A karmic pattern of my soul, I am a record-keeper.

My passion is deep and strong. The Native American lives that were disregarded, lost in the creation of this country, were real. Their tears were as salty and wet as yours and mine. They loved their children and the land; many lost both, their loved ones and the land beneath their feet.

My perspective is not only of an artist, but also that of a woman. When I enter a cave or sacred site that has been vandalized, my discomfort is primal and visceral. There is a reason ancient people venerated places where the outer landscape enters the inner realms of Mother Earth. To see these sacred places vandalized echoes disrespect for the feminine in her many forms.

Prepare and Serve Lunch at Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen @ Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen
Jun 1 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Berrien UU  Fellowship serves lunch at the Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen the first Saturday of every even-numbered month (February, April, June, August, October and December). Berrien UU volunteers prepare the meal, greet guests and help clean up the kitchen. This is a terrific opportunity to serve the greater community, support our Social Justice mission and enjoy the company of fellow BUUFers and guests at the kitchen. Rev. Jim McConnell generously leads the group in planning the meal and dessert and he will gladly find a role for all volunteers, whether they’ve helped dozens of times or this is their first time. Please consider coming to the Soup Kitchen to help, even if it’s only for an hour or two.

The Soup Kitchen is located at 233 Michigan Street in Benton Harbor.
