Sunday, November 2
Please join us this Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Frank Timmons will present a service with discussion that will focus on our handling of the Ukraine situation.
This service will be held at OWU’s Peale Chapel, on the third floor of the Hamilton-Williams Campus Center, 4 Rowland Dr. Delaware.
The United States is a wealthy powerful country. We like to think we are sensitive and understanding of others. And we have a superior type of government. Our forays in other countries are for their benefit, even though it costs us money, resources and human investment. The Discussion question: Is the U.S. approach moral? Ethical? In our best interests?
An Unplanned Incident . . .
Sunday, the 19th, Bob Ford presented "Ideas and Influence of People Who Never Lived."
Have you ever had the experience of stepping away from a novel and finding yourself thinking a little bit like the main character would? Actions of fictional characters can actually influence the decisions we make. The phenomena is called “experience-taking.” Bob looked ten fictional characters from Santa Claus to Hester Prynne of The Scarlet Letter. His source was the book 101 Most Influential People Who Never Lived by Lazar, Karlan and Salter.
At one point Bob told how Hester Prynne's creator, Nathaniel Hawthorne, was so ashamed of a great great grandfather's role as a judge in killing the Salem "witches" that he changed the spelling of his family name (by adding a "w"). A member of the congregation stood up, silent for a moment, and then said that he was the descendent of one of those falsely accused women.

Who We Are
Welcome to the Delaware Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (DUUF) of Delaware, Ohio!
We are a small, mostly lay-led congregation, and we invite you to attend our Sunday services. If you find the services meaningful, if you find spiritual contentment there, if you meet others with like interests, and if you prefer a fellowship instead of a larger church, you may be comfortable in our Fellowship.
