The Problem of Evil

A Course with Rev. Lucas Hergert
Tuesday Evenings in October at 7-8:30 pm
Materials Cost: $25
Sign up on REALM
What is evil? It is a question that hoovers at the edge of Western thought, addressed by theologians and philosophers alike. This course will explore several entangled issues, including evil in its intentional and banal forms, the role of empathy and psychology in understanding evil, as well as questions of tragedy and history, terrorism and violence. We will also consider the ways that liberal religion has responded, and failed to respond, to evil. This course will offer something accessible and challenging for everyone.

Chalice Circles – Adult Members

Chalice Circles are our version of small group ministry and are a great way to make new friends! Each group meets monthly for 1.5 hours to share and cultivate relationships with one another. Groups will meet from February-June in 2018, and then participants are given the option of being re-mixed into different groups as we create a well-integrated and networked community. You can sign up anytime, but a commitment to consistent attendance is expected from the time you begin attending.

Be sure to review the NSUC Covenant of Right Relations.

Women’s Programming

Women’s Programming offers a quarterly event, usually on a Saturday morning, that involves an educational program and fellowship. Keep an eye on the Newsletter and announcements in the order of service for upcoming events!

Charlie’s Garden Poetry Group

Charlie’s Garden Poetry Group is an open, informal group that supports one another in the spiritual practice of reading best-loved poetry. You don’t have to be a poet to participate; you may want to read something you have written or like, or just listen to others read. They meet on the second Sunday of the month at 11:30am-12:30pm in room 9.


Meditation on the first and third Sundays of each month at 9:00-9:45am in room 6 (i.e., “Bletzer”). Beginners and long-time meditators alike are welcome to attend. Sometimes there is a designated leader, and sometimes members simply come to meditate in silence together. Come late or leave early if you need to. You’re welcome for as much time as you’re able to attend.
