February 18 –  SERVICE IS OUR PRAYER     UU Rev. Jon Dobrer can he offer a quick fix for the broken hearts in Florida?  If one thinks about what happened there, it is easy to succumb to anger, and the worst pain and sorrow.  I wonder if I will ever think of Valentines’ Day the same way ever again?


February 25 – Remembering the families of Florida who lost their precious children who were shot February 14, on  Valentine’s Day.  You can listen to the words of their classmates.  Will they be able to go back to school?  This is a tape from MSNBC. Their voices are asking all of us to do what needs to be done.  Let’s discuss.
