“It Matters What We Believe”
The Reverend Annie Foerster
I’m told that August is the month that visitors come, looking for a place to settle before school starts. So, let’s make August ‘Bring a Guest’ month. You fill the seats and I’ll talk about things specifically Unitarian Universalist.

“That Other Four-Letter Word”
D. Scott Cooper
Political theorist and philosopher Edmund Burke wrote, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Much is currently being written about standing up against and rallying against evil in our world and country. But well-meaning people sometimes hold very different views of what actually is evil. UUs are typically suspicious of absolute concepts such as good and evil and how has our faith tradition historically dealt with such concepts.
Scott Cooper is on the final stretch of a year-long Chaplaincy Residency at Parkland Hospital in Dallas and has just begun preliminary fellowship as a UU minister. He will begin serving the First UU Church of Houston as Assistant Minister for Congregational Life in September.

“To Be Called by Faith”
The Reverend Annie Foerster with Turner Bridgforth
This Sunday will mark the beginning of First Jefferson Unitarian Universalist Church’s designation of being a teaching church. We will welcome our new Intern Minister, Turner Bridgforth. Turner will share the pulpit with me as we each tell our own version of what it means to be called by faith. We’ll begin to explore what it means to you to be part of a teaching church.

August 25
“Just Add Water”
The Reverend Annie Foerster
Our annual water service allows us to gather water from all over the world and combine it in a common container that represents the entire congregation. But it is more than a report of "where I spent my summer vacation." This year, participants are encouraged to share why your water was meaningful to you. Our collection of water will be an entire service of Communion of Names and Milestones; a deep reflection of the moments in your life that touched your heart.
