March Worship Theme:  Respect


Respect is a feeling of deep admiration for someone.Through respect we affirm another person’s worth & dignity thus, respect is at the core of our Unitarian Universalist faith. Indeed, some believe that respect is more important than love.  It is fundamental for deepening connections.  In contrast, disrespect severs connection and evokes negative interactions.

“Maintaining Honesty and Integrity in Difficult Conversations”

Rev. Dr. Gary Bagley

Service Leaders: Jane Threlkeld, Lynda Doll

Tech Team: Robert Kahn, Norm Leonard

Most of us have found ourselves in the uncomfortable situation of disagreeing with something being said or done. Do we correct the misinformation, protest against it, or just ignore it and hope it goes away? And, how do we, as people of conviction, live with ourselves if we just ignore it? Maintaining honesty and integrity during a difficult conversation usually requires us to ask ourselves, “Is being right more important than staying connected?” Let’s talk about that….

Rev. Dr. Gary Bagley is an ordained Presbyterian (PCUSA) minister. In addition to thirty-five years in parish ministry (permanent and intentional interim), he also served as the chief development officer at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA. Along with his wife, Jennifer (who is a former dean of admissions and higher education marketing consultant and is an artist), they live in Sautee Nacoochee where he enjoys collecting and restoring antique mechanical musical instruments.

“The Necessary Dance of Personal and Public Faith”

Rev. Greg Pope

Service Leader: Fran Watkins

Tech Team: Robert Kahn, Gayle Gannaway


 It is essential that we speak and live the values of our personal faith in the public arena while avoiding partisanship and the coercion of our beliefs on others. I will be sharing what has led me to the few courageous moments in my life where I have gone public with my faith, calling for justice and compassion.

Born and raised in Douglasville, Georgia, I have been an ordained Baptist minister for over 30 years, serving churches in Georgia, Florida, and Kentucky. I am married with three children and presently live in Talking Rock, Georgia.

“Theological Respectability”

Rev. Charlotte Arsenault

Service Leader:  Liane Varnes

Tech Team: Melinda Oliver, Norm Leonard

The expectation in the US seems to be that good, decent, and kind individuals must also be believers. This creates a harmful structure of theological respectability that says in order to be well-regarded or respected in your community- you must fall into an expected set of theological beliefs. How does this problem of theological respectability affect our personal beliefs and how does it inform our interaction with the world around us? This will also be our stewardship kickoff service!
