The motto from the popular book and television show
is a reminder that hard times are coming,
and everyone must work together
to survive the coming storm.
There’s truth waiting for us in those words.



 POPCORN THEOLOGY: ALL AGES EDITION (“COCO”)  – Saturday (12/16) @ 11:00 am
Join UUSO members and friends of all ages for a special edition of Popcorn Theology.  We’ll see the movie “COCO” at the Southside Mall Cinema and then gather afterwards for a conversation about the movie.  The movie starts at 11:10 a.m. on Saturday (12/16).  Admission for the movie is $5.00 per ticket.  (If you need financial assistance for the tickets, please contact the Rev. Craig.)  After the movie (about 1:10 p.m.), we will gather in the Southside Mall Community Room (where the Radio Shack used to be) and discuss the movie.  People are encouraged to grab a lunch to go from Subway, Five Guys, or Panera and eat during the discussion.  (The run time of the movie is 128 minutes, but there is a 20 minute “Frozen” “short” before the movie.)  If you have already seen the movie, you are still welcome to join us for the discussion.  COCO is the latest animated movie from Pixar films.  It focuses on a Mexican family and the traditions around the Day of the Dead celebration.  UUSO children are familiar with the Day of the Dead tradition as it is celebrate in our Religious Education classes every October/November.  (Please see Susan Ryder’s article in the 10/25 newsletter, available on our website.)  The film is rated PG for thematic elements.  If you have questions about the film or it’s suitability for a particular age, please contact Rev. Craig.  (I saw the movie with Cheryl last weekend and enjoyed immensely.  It is one of their best, I believe.)  No RSVP is required, but we will enter the movie theater at 11:00 a.m. to get seats.
