FUTURE SUNDAYS

Horizon encourages you to attend weekly worship here within your community, on Sundays at 10:30AM

February 23 “Staying Awake” Rev. Hamilton In his poem, “Summons,” by Robert Francis, he implores us to Keep me from going to sleep too soon Or if I go to sleep too soon Come wake me up. Come any hour Of night. Come whistling up the road. Stomp on the porch. Bang on the door. Make me get out of bed and come And let you in and light a light. I just read that 40% of our actions are habitual. I think that is low. Gurdief said we are sleepwalking through life. Anthropologists observe how cultural norms predict most of our behavior. What’s it like to be awake? Really awake?

SOCIAL JUSTICE: Ending Hunger and Poverty in the World

Horizon Donates $9,000 Dollars to Heifer “We have all needed a helping hand in our life. Start a cycle of positive change by helping others as you have been helped. The giving spirit grows exponentially with each person it impacts.� This note is posted at Heifer.org website, and it is very accurate: most of us know what it means to live needing help. Horizon Unitarian Universalist Church is a congregation of people who understand that so well. We donate to Heifer every year; it is in our Social Justice tradition. This month, thanks to our Social Justice Committee and to your generous donations, Horizon accounting office has processed a $9,000 dollars check and mailed it to Heifer. Thank you, Horizon!

“Horizon Unitarian Universalist Church of Carrollton has always been committed to social service and social action in the community. In our twenty-seven year history Horizon brought the CROP Walk to the community, has had regular blood drives for twenty years, has sponsored and participated in annual marches for human rights, peace, GLBT rights, and others, helped to bring Martin Luther King celebrations to the community, helped start a school age parent program at Mary Grimes School, has heavy involvement in and support for Metrocrest Social Services. Horizon brought a Family Place outreach center to Carrollton, sponsored a church in Romania, had food drives, repaired seniors houses, taken the youth to four Habitat for Humanity projects, taken the Coming of Age Youth to Boston for the last ten years, others to the Global Village, and raised emergency support for disaster relief - to name a few of the examples of how we live our faith."

New Trees on the Horizon Horizon members and visitors are going to be able to enjoy several new trees that we planted on our grounds this week, a few gorgeous Oklahoma redbuds and red oaks. Our grounds committee group, including Ann Pettit and Marte Keller, worked many hours to prepare the soil and to bring these “babies” in. Now the trees are here for everyone to enjoy! -

These trees will be beautiful – says Ann – People will be able to see it right away, coming in at our west entry.

Announcements: Adult RE “Spirit in Practice” with Tina Ulakovic Organizational meeting Tuesday, March 4th 7:30 pm

Do you have a spiritual practice? “Spirit in Practice” is a class designed for those who don’t yet participate in our yoga or Buddhist Sangha groups, or who wish to explore a variety of spirtual practices. This class will help Unitarian Universalists identify their spiritual needs and develop regular disciplines, or practices, of the spirit—practices that help them connect with the Sacred, with other people, and with their inner selves.

“A Long Strange Trip: The Complete Video Guide to Unitarian Universalist History” with Lauren Daniell and guests

Part II – The Birth of Unitarianism (1553 - 1794)

Two showings: Sunday, March 9th 12:30-2:00 pm OR Horizon Library

Wednesday, March 12th 7:30-9:00pm Fellowship Hall

The second installment chronicles those who carried on Servetus’ message after his martyrdom, primarily Faustus Socinus and Georgio Biandrata, and how they carried his message forward to religious liberals in Poland and Transylvania. It documents the influence of Servetus, Socinus, Dávid Ferenc, and various Polish Unitarians on the early English religious liberals such as John Biddle and Thomas Emlyn, and the work of Theophilus Lindsey and Joseph Priestley in forming an organized English Unitarianism. It discusses the split between the Arian and Socinian Unitarians in England. It mentions the early feminist work of the Unitarian Mary Wollstonecraft. It concludes with the emigration of Joseph Priestley from England to America in 1794.The same segment will be shown twice to accommodate members’ schedules. Close-captioned.

ART ON THE HORIZON In Retrospect: Scratching the Surface Paintings, monoprints, and drawings Laurie Weller * February 23 – March 30, 2014

Scratch: verb. 1.a. To make a shallow cut or mark with something sharp.

Surface: noun. 1.a. The outer or topmost boundary of an object. b. A material layer, constituting such a boundary 2.

The superficial or outward appearance of anything.

Stratagraphic use of color and transparency are very important elements in my work. The paintings and drawings demonstrate my interest in anthropology and archeology, and use burying and overlapping to display these concepts visually. A sense of space and the passage of time is indicated by the way that the spaces in the overlapping layers expose the history of the layers underneath. In some of the images this is achieved illusionistically, and in others, I use collage in a literal manner to created overlapping images. None of my work is formally visualized at the outset. The paintings work outward from the surface in layers that I change with each mark, unclear as to intent, until the last mark is made. I sometimes feel that I am blindly making gestures with color, intuitively creating order out of a kind of chaos. When all the elements within my work make a kind of order, the piece is finished. It is easier to describe a finished piece than the process of finishing it. When I find that the drawing or painting involves an interesting complex structure of dominant and subordinate elements, (i.e., relationships of marks to marks, color to color, activity to static shape) then it is considered complete. If one were to unearth the layers in my work one would find many different paintings, only parts of which are revealed in the top layer. Some works are added to, erased, sewn on top of, painted over, scraped off, before the final “state” is achieved. Each painting is a separate evolution of the editing and re-editing of these various states. The pieces either develop self-referentially, or grow out of visual experience. For example, “Night Thorns and Fireflies” is inspired on a visual level by cactus and fireflies. Thorns and light are two kinds of


the_week@horizonuu the_week@horizon v05.13.12page 19 of 24

page 19 of 24

visual marks that I respond to, in terms of formal visual vocabulary. Personal symbolic significance is also attached to these “marks”. My interest was not to imitate nature, but to abstract certain characteristics and refer to these while developing my own statement. Experiences serve as information to nibble on, and sometimes feast on, in the creation of an image from the blank paper. The first thing that I do while working is to cover the paper with color. Rarely do I use the same colors or apply them in the same way in the beginning of the works. As a work is developed, applying layers of paint, paper, pastels, thread, or using other mark-making implements, I recall various experiences. These are often visual, yet not exclusively. Other sensory stimuli include music, food (color, texture, spice) and even include my empathetic response to squirming maggots I once watched a fisherman use for bait. These memories, sometimes supplemented by photographs, become the references from which the work is abstracted. From this warehouse of images I extract and evolve new images and relationships. This was my first statement, written in 1980. I have found throughout my years of painting that the words are often relevant. I am pushing different boundaries, layering in different ways, responding to different tunes, for many of the same reasons. I feel that I have only begun to “Scratch the Surface” and look forward to discovering where this work will lead me.

Laurie Weller

It’s a great pleasure to exhibit Laurie’s work. Regular art shows in our sanctuary are a way to reach out to the local community of artists who visually reflect the spirit of our church. We in return, reflect back to the community the spirit of our faith. Horizon receives twenty percent of each sold piece of art. To purchase an artwork, make payment at the church office (be sure to make notation about the piece of art you are buying) and mark the card below the piece of art “SOLD”. Horizon Art Coordinators, Linda Alred, Nikki Henderson and Marianna Seaton are happy to assist you.

Campout News * By Paul Nelson * pnelson114@gmail.com

Spring Campout April 25-27 at Eisenhower State Park It’s 40F in the garage, 17F outside, with snow flurries, so naturally we are thinking forward to late April, when the vegetation will be green, flowers will be in full bloom and the weather should be mild. Perfect time for camping! Horizon will join Community UU church for the spring camp out April 25-27 at Eisenhower State Park. We have reserved all of the shelters in the Deer Haven campground. All UUs from the NTUUC congregations are invited. Full disclosure: This is the same weekend as the SWUUC Annual Meeting/Conference, but it posed the fewest conflicts with other weekend events.

Announcements

Elva Roy (member of Pathways UU/Board member of nonprofit Funeral Consumers Alliance of North Texas “FCANT”) and Jim Bates (Board President of FCANT www.fcant.org) are hosting a “Death Over Dinner” event to encourage individuals and families to discuss death and what should happen when you or your loved one dies. The purpose of this event is to take the “taboo” out of the death discussion. Elva and Jim will conduct a fun and lively discussion about various options available to a family when someone dies, such as (1) Do It Yourself home funerals where families take care of their own dead, with little or no involvement of a funeral home which is perfectly legal in Texas and is becoming more popular; (2) green burials (what it is, cemeteries with a green section, requirements, etc.); (3) least to most expensive arrangements with price estimates; (4) discussion of the federal FTC “Funeral Rule” and your consumer rights when dealing with funeral homes; Q&A. During the second hour, while eating, you will be encouraged to discuss your experiences and thoughts about death with your table mates. Bring your family. No charge, except you will pay for your own meal.

Recent programs have included How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci: Seven Steps to Genius Every Day, a night of Board Games, and TED talks on the Power of Vulnerability, Connected but Alone, and Body Language. We’d love to have you in our group! To find out more, contact Nancy Foreman or Sarah Roye at wfig@horizonuu.org. Young Adults Chalice Circle Contact YoungAdults@horizonuu.org for more details.
