HORNELL ALFRED UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST SOCIETY

(HAUUS)

January-February 2016

HAUUS meets at 10:30, at 198 Main Street in Hornell NY. All are welcome. For more information call (607) 698-4508 or 522-7803 or visit our blog at HAUUS.org.

January 10“Were there two Rhesus monkeys or seven on the ark and what does this mean for your blood type?” The book, Who Wrote the Bible by scholar Richard Friedman will be reviewed by HAUUS member Steve Smith. This will be somewhat of a rehash for the general public of something called the Documentary Hypothesis. Prior to Steve’s program we could look this (Documentary Hypothesis) up in Wikipedia.   It is about a 2 page article. Steve will provide examples such as 2 biblical accounts of the Flood apparently written by different people and some chronology of the Bible, the Ten Lost Tribes, etc.

January 24Faith Amidst Prosthetic Culture -UU roots are found in Puritan Calvinism.   The strategy we use for our personal and church life operate within the ‘prostheses’ of popular culture.  Discussion will involve how we handle zeal of social movements that deny our personal losses and the fear that we cannot live outside the contrived dimensions of everyday life. Tim Bancroft will lead our discussion.

February 14 — There are several possibilities being explored for this Sunday’s program. There is nothing certain as of this writing. A notice will be emailed separately once the program is confirmed.
