Return of the Question Box 

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails Lay Leader: Laurel  Holmes  Music: Marsha Sousa

Our third annual Question Box sermon! It’s safe to assume that if you’re a UU, you’ve got questions. If you’ve got deep theological conundrums, ethical quandaries, or playful paradoxes taking up space in your brain, this is your chance to have our minister take a crack at them from the pulpit. This program will be made up entirely of your queries and Rev. Leslie’s answers to them. Email your questions to Rev. Leslie (minister@nulluuff.org) or drop them in the “Question Box” in the fellowship foyer by February 2nd.

The UU Conservative 

Minister: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails   Lay Leader: Cam Leonard Music: Vera Alexander

Tending to Each Other’s Dreams  

Speaker: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails Lay Leader: Lisa Sporleder

Humanity has a habit of dreaming big, aspiring to and achieving once unthinkable feats of space travel and technological advancement.
