On July 18th, Rev. Michael Dowd will be our guest. Since April 2002, Michael and his wife (UU science writer and fellow climate activist Connie Barlow) have traveled North America delivering talks in some 500 UU congregations, summer camps, and minister retreats, as well as for other religious and secular groups.
Their pro-science, pro-future ministry was featured as the cover story of our national membership magazine, UU World, in the spring of 2006. They’ve also been featured in major media throughout the U.S. and Canada, and Michael and Connie were honored as 2016 “UU Religious Humanists of the Year” at the UUA General Assembly in Columbus, Ohio.
And Then: On Thursday, July 22nd from 7-8:30pm Michael will provide an open virtual Q & A to engage in a discussion of his video presentation, “Serenity Prayer for the 21st Century: Pro-Future Love-in-Action.” [use this link to access the video to watch at your leisure and join us for the Q&A by using the Sunday sermon Zoom link on our website] That program expands on content in his two TEDx talks and his book, Thank God for Evolution, which was endorsed by 6 Nobel Prize-winning scientists, noted skeptics, and religious leaders across the spectrum.
Visitors are welcome to join us for both the Sunday sermon and the Thursday night program to share their feelings, questions, and comments.
