March 5: "Radical Love"
Rev. Leonetta Bugleisi
How does love stretch to include justice and demand for truth? How does love expand to maintain healthy boundaries in relationships with those in need? How does love move from sentiment to a 'mysterious sense of connection' that may or may not last for years? How long should one stay in the 'bonds of love' when seeming detrimental to oneself?
March 12: "The Harmony of It All"
Pastor Julie Brock
Why does the human spirit respond to music in such a unique and extraordinary way? How do our bodies translate noises into emotion and experience?
Come ponder these topics and experience some truly amazing music, as we introduce our new pianist Olivia Hwak.

March 26th: "Death and Dying
Julie Brock is our consulting minister.
Julie Brock is a life long Unitarian Universalist, raised in the UU in the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Detroit. In 2015 she completed her internship at the First Unitarian Society of Madison. In 2014 Julie worked a chaplain resident at the Mayo Clinc, and in 2014 she graduated with an MDiv from the Graduate Theological Union.
Julie a passion for spiritual exploration, social justice, inclusive community, oxford commas, and inter-generational worship. Julie has a theatre background and tends to be upbeat and enthusiastic. She considers myself somewhat of a church junkie. If there is a service, she wants to be there. From Sufi Dziker, to Catholic Mass, to Pagan ritual, she has reverence for and find rejuvenation in most all experiences of the divine.
Church and ritual are two of Julie's favorite things. She also loves, singing, taking long walks in pretty places, the race horse Seabiscuit, bright colors, campfires with hot cocoa, live theatre, impromptu 80’s dance parties in my living room, the television show Survivor, karaoke, cooking and eating delicious things... and people. People are actually her absolute favorite thing on the planet, and she feels honored to serve a church with so many gorgeous souls to connect and share with.
But hey, Julie's got a question for you... why did the Unitarian Universalist cross the road? ... They wanted to affirm the chicken’s right to choose its own path! Julie is most excited to find out what worship means to YOU! Why do you come to church, and how do you see the church creating more justice and love in the Universe?
She hopes she sees you on Sunday!
