South Whidbey churches announce topics for Sunday's services

‘The Flaming Chalice’ at UUCWI

The flaming chalice is the symbol of Unitarian Universalism. At the Sunday service for the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Whidbey Island, Rev. Kit Ketcham will tell the story of how it became the church’s faith icon and what it means in contemporary terms.

All are welcome. The service is at 10 a.m. Sunday. The Unitarian Universalist Congregation meets at 20103 Highway 525, just north of Freeland.

Check www.whidbey.com/uucwi for more information.

‘Soul’ is the subject at Sunday service

“The term souls or spirits is as improper as the term gods. Soul or Spirit signifies Deity and nothing else. There is no finite soul nor spirit. Soul or Spirit means only one Mind, and cannot be rendered in the plural,” (“Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures”).

Sunday, Aug. 14, the Christian Science service focuses on “Soul” and how recognition of God as “Soul” helps to recognize one’s divine nature and honor the creator.

The exploration into “Soul” begins at 10:30 a.m. at the Christian Science Church located at 15910 Highway 525, just north of Bayview. Everyone is welcome.

Pastor Wenzek gives the SWCC sermon

Pastor Darrell Wenzek will speak tomorrow at South Whidbey Community Church on the topic “The God Whom We Worship,” looking at some of the attributes of God from the Psalms.

Sunday worship is from 10 to 11 a.m. and is preceded by an adult learning forum at 9 with Stan Walker leading a study in the Book of First Corinthians, and Rick Zapata leading a study in the Book of Genesis: the life of the Patriarchs.

‘The Bee’s Knees’ at Unity on Sunday

Rev. Patty Becker will give the talk “The Bee’s Knees” at the Unity of Whidbey service on Sunday.

Rev. Becker has been exploring the five basic principles that Unity aligns itself with.

The first and second principles state both the Unity belief about the nature of God and how members see themselves in relationship to God.

This week, the service will explore the working out of one’s relationship to God in real life through the third principle which says people create their own experiences by the activity of their thinking.

Everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought. Can it really be that simple? Come and find out this Sunday at Unity of Whidbey.

Tadd CharetteNunn will provide the musical celebration and Joy Williams will serve as platform assistant.

The service is 10 a.m. Sunday at Unity’s church at 5671 Crawford Road. All are welcome.
