If addiction and recovery is a topic that interests you, I will be speaking about it on Sunday January 8th at 10:30 AM at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Hot Springs, 100 Norwalk. I had primarily a prescription drug problem for about 2 decades, self-medicating anxiety, depression, and chronic headaches. I can assure you this will not be a drunkalogue or give accolades to the Alcoholic’s Anonymous program for saving me. I will touch on the failed War on Drugs and evidence based recovery methods being used by experts in the field of addiction. I began studying this around a year ago for my own sake after seeing most addicts relapse using traditional recovery methods in the US using the failed ‘12 Step Facilitation.’ I’ll touch on CBT, Mindfulness, and Connection.
Join us at 9:00 AM for the Wisdom Seekers talk

“The reality is that Slavery has not ended. Human Trafficking occurs in almost every country and has been reported in every state in the United States, including Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Melisa Glenn serves with Project Hope as Chair of the Human Trafficking Task Force of Garland County and the Hot Springs Representative for Partners Against Trafficking Humans, PATH, which is based in Little Rock. Melisa will be sharing what Human Trafficking is and how to respond to it.”
Melisa is a resident of Hot Springs, Arkansas. She is a graduate of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and holds a Bachelor of Arts in History and Secondary Education. After learning about the atrocities of Human Trafficking and realizing the lack of education on what human trafficking is and the impact it has on the community, she began attending conferences and training to become an educator. Her focus is to provide awareness and knowledge for others like herself so that they can become a voice for the voiceless. The mission at the Human Trafficking Task Force of Garland County is “Educating and equipping individuals and communities to strengthen local efforts.”
The service begins at 10:30am.

The Youth Religious Exploration meet during the regular service and will begin a study of the Seven Principles of the Unitarian Universalist faith.
10:30am Speaker Rev Bud Hearn-The name of the presentation is, “The Paradox of Liberal Religion.” When a religion describes itself as liberal typically means that it is tolerant, inclusive, progressive, supports intellectual honesty, opposes dogmatic rigidity, favors a humanistic approach to ethics. By definition then liberal religion includes being tolerant. A paradox ? Historically liberal religionists have resisted any reform requiring them to give up their privileged way of life. A paradox ? A liberal religious community tends to want people just “like us”. A paradox ? In Sunday’s service Rev Bud Hearn explores the dynamic of liberal religion.
The Youth RE topic is the sixth of the Six Sources of our faith, “Teachings of people who celebrate nature and remind us to live in harmony with the natural seasons of life.”

When my plane touched down in the United States on Wednesday night, it was a different country from the one I left. I was in Frankfurt, Germany for the European Unitarian Universalist conference as the keynote speaker. After a presidential election like we have had, relationships are often frayed and strained and sometimes broken. How we respond when it’s over makes a huge impact.
