Sunday, April 11th - "The Stillness That Carries Us" - Emily Quarles-Mowrer
The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle tells us that a particle’s position and momentum cannot both be precisely determined at the same time. British writer Pico Iyer said in his 2013 Ted Talk, “It’s only by stopping movement that you can see where to go.” For some of us, this past year has been a time of enforced inactivity that allows us to focus on our current position. Join us as we think about the ways that stillness helps us to move more deliberately through the world.
Sunday, April 18th - "Paying Attention" - Mark Bernstein
Our busy and often chaotic lives require that we pay attention to many things, often at once. In so doing, we find ourselves pulled in different directions, confused, exhausted and often overwhelmed. How do we know where to direct our attention and how can our Unitarian Universalist faith help us to pay attention to that which is most important to us?
The split plate recipient for the month of April is NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness. It is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI Mercer, NJ, provides free, top-rated mental health programs and services for our community. A robust local affiliate of NAMI, NAMI Mercer listens, leads, educates, and advocates, empowering families and individuals affected by mental illness to build lives of quality and respect, free of stigma and discrimination. They help thousands of families and individuals each year.

POISON AT THE ROOT
This Service is a recorded zoom session including our month's theme of worth and dignity. This week we had special guest Emily Quarles-Mowrer speaking on her experience of racism in America, and what we can learn moving forward spiritually.
This Zoom recorded service features guest speaker Craig Rubano talking about finding a balance of living in a world where the sense of what we have, what we've accomplished, and who we are can be conditioned by cultural ideals of perfection.
