April 13 “What Should I Do With (the Rest of) My Life?” Ted Rulseh 
A wise person said that life is like a roll of tape: The closer you get to the end, the faster it goes. As many of us reach the stage where we can count our remaining years on our fingers and toes, how do we make life decisions? Is this a time to follow the classic pre-retirement advice and avoid taking risks? Or is this a time to throw at least some caution to the wind -- to do the things we love and make a difference where we think it matters? John Ted in revisiting the question posed by the poet Mary Oliver: "What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"
Ted is a long time member of LUUF who has moved north. He's a writer you'll enjoy. He always has something interesting to say.

March 30  "Is Courage a Religious Value? "--Arthur Thexton
Courage is often associated with heroism on the battlefield or with disease and heartbreak. In our history of religions, we see other examples of courage, in the many martyrs to faiths.  Easter is one such.  Does the choice to belong take courage, today?  Even to an institution like the UU Fellowship, in a country with constitutional protections for all sorts of religious practices?  Arthur will share his reflections on this topic. 
Arthur is our most frequent speaker who graduated from seminary, although he chose the law as his profession. He works for the state of Wisconsin in Madison.
