The Opportunities and Perils of Screen Technologies
Screens.  Whether TV, computer or, in the past decade, smartphones and tablets, they have elicited dismay and enthusiasm in equal measure.  The questions mount.  Do screens offer more opportunities for sharing and creativity or do they increase isolation and present physical and psychological risks?  Do they enhance learning or distract? What is their impact on family dynamics and community engagement (including religious community)?   Join UULC to view Youtube presentations by experts, a case of technology enhancing our learning.  Discussion follows.  This program takes place during Screen Free Week."

Sunday, May 6 at noon on the sidewalk front of UU Wellesley

Labyrinth

"A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. The Labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world."  ~ D. H. Johntson.  Ministerial Intern Sarah invites you to come and experience what this ancient practice may hold for you on the second Sunday of each month in our Chapel.
