“Survival” – the Rev. Dr. Don Fielding returns to Red RiverUU to share his unique preaching style.
You may download the MORNING PROGRAM or scroll down and read it below.
Of his morning discourse, Don writes:
It is a very scary time. Survival is on everyone’s mind. Will Ukraine survive? W
ill democracy survive? Polls are showing that young people are increasingly leaving religion; will religion survive? And if religion is threatened, what about our religion? Are Unitarian Universalism days numbered too?
I will have some thoughts about the survival of religion, and our religion as well. Come and hear my recommendations about what we need to do to survive.
Over the last 25 years, Don has made the trip from Plano to lead our morning assemblies on many occasions. As part of our “Glimmers of Silver” 25th anniversary – we’ve asked him to return (again) to delight, challenge and inspire us with another sermon – one he has been working on over the last couple of months.
INTRODUCING OUR RETURNING GUEST MINISTER…
The Rev Dr. Don Fielding changes career paths after 25+ years as a geologist and chose to study for the ministry. He graduated from Meadville/Lombard Theological School in Chicago – a UU seminary – in 1990, was ordained and served OTH the Denton UU Fellowship and the UU Church of Oak Cliff from 1990 until his retirement in 2003 when he became minister emeritus of the Denton UU Fellowship. He says one thing he learned by serving two congregations at the same time is that a sermon that flies at one spot may fall flat at the other location since each congregation has its own way of being together. Don returns after a far-too-long absence. Don enjoys writing sermons, which he calls a reflection, and we call a discourse and presents worship in his own style which will be abundantly clear on Sunday. It is a joy to have him back with us again.TMP 04-03 FINAL EDITED FOR STEWARDSHIP MOMENT
