Science Sunday 
on November 6th will look at "Science in the Crosshairs".  Scientists have increasingly been subjects of congressional review in the last decades. Investigators that have studied topics of a politically sensitive nature can and have been hauled before congressional hearings, served with subpoenas, and questioned about their work.  While some amount of congressional oversight is part of the job, these hearings are often seen as a chilling attempt to limit scientific freedom. We will listen to recordings of a few researchers as they describe how their studies brought them before powerful politicians and what resulted.  We will have time to discuss the implications of these challenges to scientific inquiry.

Bridging Military Families and Our Community
By Reverend Tom Capo and members of TAPS
Rev. Tom and members of TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) will provide some insight into what it means to be a military family.  Their hope is to begin to build a bridge of understanding and relationships between their families and ours, here at DUUC.

Tree of Life
By Karen Lindebrekke & Gemma Guenther, Ministerial Intern
The Tree of Life is an ancient, universal symbol found in diverse cultures and religions from around the world. It has deep roots, a strong trunk, many branches, nourishing fruits and seeds, and a broad canopy. It gives life, and it is associated with knowledge and wisdom, immortality and enlightenment, family and community, the love of the divine, the word of the divine, and divine spirits themselves. Trees are amazing life forms with admirable strength, resilience, persistence and beauty, and they can nourish those characteristics within us. Together we will explore the symbol of the Tree of Life and how it is meaningful to UUs and to you.
