Sunday, May 20th- “The Wit & Wisdom of Robert Fulghum”
Rev. Barry Bloom
There are few people among us with more wit and common sense than “Bob.” He is/was a UU minister in the Pacific Northwest, living in a houseboat, finally settling into his truest ministry, writing. His books, beginning with, “All I Really Need to know I Learned in Kindergarten,” are truly funny, but funny wise. The way you would expect a good UU minister to write. So, come to enjoy his creativity, his singular goofy vision, and let us bring some much-needed balance into our world with laughter.
RE: Principal # 6 & 7 Mother Mawu Wants Peace
