YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD

Wendi Gladstone and Rev. Mike Young

Based on our Unitarian Universalist 7th principle, the sermon will be about the proposed Santa Susana Mountain Park.  Remember where the rockets were developed?  There’s more there and it deserves to be protected.  Wendi Gladstone purchased this sermon at the Oct. 2014 Service Auction, and this is her topic.

MOMMY, GIMME A DRINK ‘A WATER

Mother's Day Sermon by Rev. Mike Young


Danny Kaye's rendition of this was one of my children's favorites.

The service will be a celebration of motherhood—of parenting by whoever happens to be filling the role.
