FUTURE SUNDAYS Horizon encourages you to attend weekly worship here within your community, on Sundays at 10:30AM
Future Sundays March Theme: Planting March 9, “UU Treasures” Horizon Players take the stage for a dramatic look at what UUs treasure. When Horizon Players is afoot, expect something special -- expect the unexpected!
March 16 “Planting Wild Flowers” - Rev. Dennis Hamilton Lady Bird Johnson softened the landscape of Texas by planting millions of wild flowers. She said, “Where flowers bloom, so does hope.” Others have planted weeds among the flowers. What do we do to combat the hatred, the blame and hypocrisy? How do we weed our garden, till the soil and plant seeds of hope, seeds of justice, and seeds of happiness? How do we do it without losing our own souls in the process?
March 23, “Blooming Where You Are Planted” - Mary Kay Hamilton We are not always where we expected or wanted to be. But wherever we are there is opportunity. I never thought I would learn to love being in Texas, but the closer I am to leaving, the more I discover I have deeper roots here than I imagined. Horizon has been fertile ground for me to grow and bloom.
March 30, “Planting Horizon” - Lyssa Jenkens, Intern Minister Church start-ups have the same slim odds of survival as any non-profit or small business, maybe even less among UU churches. Yet, Horizon has prospered in the 27 years since it was planted to serve the northwestern suburbs of Dallas. What conditions conspired to make this so? And, what is the yield of this success?

Come “Explore Horizon” with Us! For those who are visiting and want to know more about Unitarian Universalism and Horizon, or for members who want to learn more about how Horizon works, a series of classes may answer your questions.
On Saturday, March 22nd, “How Do U Fit into UU?” will be presented by members of the Membership Committee and other Horizon leaders. It starts at 10:30 AM and runs until 2:30 PM. Hear about the history of Horizon, how our members participate in the life of the church and what activities and offerings we have. We’ll also cover the expectations of membership. A light lunch will be served during class, which will be held in the church library.
On Sunday, March 23rd, Reverend Dennis Hamilton will lead “New to UU” from 12:30-2:30. Light lunch served. Learn about the history and structure and uniqueness of Unitarian Universalism. Hear about our Seven Principles that we strive to understand and integrate into our lives. This class will be in the Fellowship Hall after the Sunday service.
On Sunday, April 6th, Reverend Hamilton will conduct a New Member Sunday where anyone wanting to join Horizon may do so at that time. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join.

Share the Plate for Sunday 16 MAR 2014 Horizon has a collection for non-profit organizations once a month during our worship service.
The Share the Plate collection on Sunday March 16 will be for the Texas Land Conservancy. The Texas Land Conservancy (TLC) is a non-governmental, 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of land in Texas. In essence, we are in the business of protecting natural areas from the negative effects of land fragmentation and poorly-planned development. Land conserved by TLC will be protected forever from becoming a subdivision, strip mall, or parking lot. We help landowners find an economical, realistic alternative to selling their land to a developer that allows ownership to remain in their hands, but puts the responsibility of conserving the land in ours. Many of these properties are working farms or ranches, while others contain important habitat for wildlife and native plant communities. All of these lands are beautiful examples of Texasâ€™ natural heritage. TLCâ€™s work ensures that economic viability and growth is balanced with what makes us Texan: our rural heritage, our open-spaces, our farms and ranches, our scenic vistas, and our natural resources. Our Vision A diverse and expanding network of protected natural areas throughout Texas supported by a community of Texans who share a commitment to enhancing the quality of life through land conservation. Our Mission The mission of Texas Land Conservancy is to conserve natural areas in Texas and to protect the physical and ecological integrity of their wildlife habitat, native plant communities, and scenic landscapes for the benefit of present and future generations.
1) All undesignated cash (not in envelope with instructions) will go to Share the Plate; 2) Checks MUST be made to Horizon UU with a memo Share-The-Plate or STP to be counted toward the donations for that day; 3) Undesignated checks without instructions are assumed to be donations to the church or to fulfill pledges; 4) This is our Horizon's primary source of funds for outreach into the world.

From the Intern Minister * By Lyssa Jenkens * email@example.com
Candle Lighters II Every Friday, from 10 am until 2 pm, about 15 people meet in Horizonâ€™s Fellowship Hall in a small group ministry called Candle Lighters. This ministry serves church members and people from the larger community diagnosed with early stage dementia and mild cognitive impairment. Every week for just over one year we have shared our stories and lots of meals, practiced tai chi and yoga, released our inner artists, played games and built deep friendships. With a ratio of about one volunteer for every two members with a diagnosis, it is very hard to tell who is in which category because we are all in this ministry together. It is a joy. We have reached the limits of this first group and have started a waiting list for a second group that will eventually meet at the same time each week. We invite anyone with early stage dementia or mild cognitive impairment, interested in learning more about this group, to contact Marianna Seaton at firstname.lastname@example.org or 972-743-1599. Remember, Candle Lighters is open to members and non-members. Reach out to your friends who might need this ministry. We do not know of any other group offering this kind of intentional community. Care partners are also welcome to contact us for more information.

Middle School Bake Sale Earns $360 for Planned Parenthood
Last Sunday, Horizon middle school students brought in approximately $360 during their social action fundraiser to benefit Planned Parenthood. The bake sale was the culmination of the North Texas UU Congregations (NTUUC) middle school overnight social justice conference called CongrUUity, which took place at Horizon February 21-22nd. The students chose Planned Parenthood as the charity after a long process of brainstorming, discussion and voting. Thank you for supporting our young teens while they learned an important lesson about social justice, and thank you for your support of Planned Parenthood.

What is God Like? Last Sunday in Children’s Chapel, Horizon children from Kindergarten-5th grade heard the story of Hosea Ballou and the Mud. The story says that Ballou based his Universalist beliefs on the unconditional love his own father showed him as a youth after coming home covered in mud after playing outside time and time again, even though instructed not to do so. “If my own father can forgive me, why can’t God the Father also forgive my sins?” Ballou thinks in the story. We brainstormed about what we thought God was like, and here are some painting of God (or the Universe, or the Ultimate) that our children made with MUD!

Playing this week… “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. The segment discusses the split between the Arian and Socinian Unitarians in England and mentions the early feminist work of the Unitarian Mary Wollstonecraft, concluding with the emigration of Joseph Priestley from England to America in 1794. The same segment will have two showings to accommodate members’ schedules. Close-captioned. Reserve childcare at email@example.com.

“Spirit in Practice” with Helena (Tina) Ulakovic
Tuesday, March 18th 6:00-7:30pm What is a spiritual practice? Do you have one? “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.
