SCHEDULE OF ACTIVITIES FOR APRIL 2019
APRIL 3, 2019 – Dr. Robert Tucker – “The Virtue of Humor” April (because of April Fool’s Day on 4/1) is Holy Humor Month and National Humor Month. Philosophers have long recognized that humor is a virtue; and, in this sermon, Dr. Tucker will explain why. There will not be a potluck dinner.

APRIL 17, 2019 – Maxine Blumenthal – “From Jewish to Jewnitartian” One of our snowbirds, Maxine Blumenthal, a founding member of the South Jersey chapter of Unitarian Universalists, said it was amazing for them to discover how many different backgrounds compose UU congregations. Maxine, herself, was born into a Jewish family and chose to become a UU in 1961. She was asked three years ago to talk of her journey from Jewish to Jewnitarian. She will repeat this presentation for us this evening.

APRIL 24, 2019 – Linda Conklin – Take-aways from the Book, “Echoes from the Wall,” by Judy King. We are told that the Mexicans seeking entry to the U.S. are criminals, leeching from our country’s social services. But who are these people who brave the perils of the journey to “el norte?” Why don’t they enter legally like they are supposed to? Many of these migrants suffer the indifferent cruelty of the visa process or face the horrors of crossing the desert just to provide a better life for their families. And the biggest disgrace is the way the veterans are treated by our government. Come hear some of the highlights (or lowlights) of this fascinating new book.
