April 20, 2014 – Easter - Jesus and His Merry Band of Fools - Rev. Hamilton

He knew they would crucify him for his foolishness.  How could he think he could heal the wound of Rome, of patriarchy, of fear and hatred?  How naïve he must have been to think that love could save him.  What a fool.  What a beautiful fool.

THE ANNUAL PLEDGE DRIVE

2014 Commitment Campaign

Our Commitment Campaign (annual pledge drive) will happen this year on one day, Super Celebration Sunday, February 9th.  Plan to stay after the service for the potluck meal (and a few surprises!).  We are going to celebrate our theme this year, “To Horizon with Love…”

Horizon is entirely self-supporting when it comes to our annual operating budget.  97% of the church’s support comes from members and friends—81% from our Commitment Campaign, 8% from Sunday offerings and 8% from our two fundraising auctions. Our members truly show their love for and value of Horizon in their lives through their generosity. Thank you!

We hope that you will make a pledge for 2014 (to begin on July 1, 2014, our new fiscal year). We need your gift—and to get your gift, we have to have your pledge card! Pledge cards will be handed out this Sunday at Revival Sunday—come “rock down” with our gospel choir and enjoy some lively and fun UU evangelism (we need to get better at it).  Hear testimonials from brother/sister Horizon UU’s…it’s one of the best services of the year!

We’d love to see ALL of you on Super Celebration Sunday, February 9th But we want your pledge by the 9th, even if you can’t come to church on that day!  Your timely pledge is vital for our Board and leaders to be able to plan for the upcoming 2014-2015 financial year.

Horizon By-Laws Rewrite

At the January Congregational Meeting, Horizon s members were asked to vote on a re-write of our By-laws. A task force of current and former Board Members has talked about and worked on the rewrite for almost two years, assisted and guided by Dennis and Lyssa.

The obvious questions are: “Why?” And “Why now?” 

The answer to “Why?” is that while our current By-Laws served very well for the first half of Horizon’s 26 years, requiring only one amendment in 1996, they have become cumbersome during our second 13 years, requiring 8 amendments. 

Future Sundays at Horizon UU

Future Sundays * April Fools
 
April 20 Easter “Jesus and His Merry Band of Fools”  Rev. Hamilton
 
He knew they would crucify him for his foolishness.  How could he think he could heal the wound of Rome, of patriarchy, of fear and hatred?  How naïve he must have been to think that love could save him.  What a fool.  What a beautiful fool.  
 
 
April 27 “Holy Fools” Rev. Hamilton
 
We are all fools of one sort or another, usually without our knowing it.  Some holy fools are sincere, but foolish in their fear and hatred of the body or sex or the world.  Some fools just don’t understand what brings happiness and waste their lives on addictions, resentments and false promises of eternal life.  Today we look at what kind of foolishness makes sense.
