“The Cost of a Thing” with David Robinson
“The cost of a thing,” Henry David Thoreau wrote in 1854, “is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it…” Thoreau’s concerns about materialism and consumerism still ring true.
UUFC member David Robinson is the director of the Center for the Humanities at OSU, and an eminent scholar and historian of UU History and American Transcendentalism.

Wheel of the Year Beltane Celebration
Join in a nature-connected celebration of Beltane – a time to honor the beginning of the three months of greatest daylight. This family-friendly event begins with time to arrive and get connected, followed by an hour-long ceremony (around 4:00 PM) and finally a potluck following the ceremony. You are welcome to attend any part of it.
* Childcare for Infants and Toddlers is provided at both Sunday morning services.
* Religious Exploration classes are available for Children and Youth during the 11AM service.
* Recordings of previous services are found in our Sermon Archive.
