What is that thing that calls us to live larger than the fear we've known allows us to live?  What breeds the risk and courage great lives need.  The Welsh used to call it 'Hwyl' - a contagious fervor for Love.  The Scottish used a more familiar word: 'gumption': a stubborn determination that won't be denied.  The French call it Joi de vivre.  UU's sometimes call it the 'divine spark.'   But it's the Greek word I like the best: Enthusiasmos.  What is this force of life?  How do we harness it?  And what does it ask us to do?

During the 11 am service, we'll hold a ceremony welcoming our New Members.
