Rev. George Buchanan to speak at Unitarian Universalist

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua is pleased to welcome Consulting Minister George Buchanan on Sunday April 21. Buchanan’s sermon “Jesus, the Reluctant Hero” will address the wealth of stories about Jesus of Nazareth and his companions, the truth they told, and the risks they took to tell that truth. Today we will consider what we as contemporary Unitarian Universalists can still learn from these stories.

To carry on the tradition Claudia Ansell began many years ago, congregants are also invited to bring flowering plants to brighten the sanctuary today. Those who are bringing plants should arrive early enough to place them at the front of the room before the service begins. After the service, please be sure to take your plants home with you.

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua is a liberal religious community devoted to promoting individual spiritual development, working toward peace, liberty and justice in our immediate and global communities, and providing companionship on life’s sacred journey.Worship services are held each Sunday at 11 a.m. in the Grange Hall, 58 W. Main St. Fredonia. Call 679-7944, visit www.uucnc.org or visit the page on Facebook at www.facebook.com/uucnc for more information.
