First UU Events
Rev. David Carter will present, "What the Frack?" Everyone knows that disease, debt, and fire need to be extinguished immediately or there may be hell to pay. The earthquakes that have dramatically increased in Kansas as a result of fracking may be a sort of disease manifesting in the body of our Mother Earth. Or else they may be seen as a kind of fire ignited by our ceaseless pursuit of the “good life.” But, have we overstepped our bounds; have we zoomed right by the “good life,” too caught up in the chase to notice our misadventure; are we flirting with hell to pay?
Plan to attend this splendid afternoon of music at our church on Sunday. This event promises to deliver great performances by excellent Wichita area musicians and great cookies at the intermission reception for a donation of only $10. Chastity Pawloski and Rachelle Goter will play “Duos for Flute and Clarinet” by Robert Muezynski and also “Three American Miniatures” by John Rutter. Laura Clark Martinez and Eric Crawford plan to perform “Duet for Cello and Double Bass in D Major” by Gioacchino Rossini. Eric also hopes to bring some superb young string players from East High School to play. Violinists, Nancy Johnson and Dominique Corbeil have scheduled the Handel/Halvorsen “Passaacaglia” and “Sonata for 2 Violins” by Johann Kalliwoda. And that's not all – Phillip Black will appear with The WSU Tuba/Euphonium Ensemble to complete this fabulous program. Do not miss this concert!
