Sunday, July 21, 2019 – Befriending Uncertainty

Physician and author Rachel Naomi Remen has said, “The wish to control floats like a buoy above the hidden reef of fear. More than any single thing, fear is the stumbling block to life’s agenda.” Former MDUUC intern, Rev. Melissa Thomson, returns to MDUUC July 21 and will speak on the spiritual practice of abiding with the ebb and flow of life’s uncertainties.

Sunday, July 28, 2019 – A Healing Journey

Join Worship Associate Bill Yarborough to explore the different facets of healing from repressed, traumatic childhood experiences. There is much to be learned from the transformative power of various healing practices as well as insights into the unconscious mind. And you do not need to have suffered traumas to gain from these practices and insights.
