Elephants and Embryos: A Play about Cloning and Genetic Engineering

Come join our Service this Sunday, October 9th, 11am by Zoom or in person wearing an N95 or KN95 mask. We recommend in-person attendance if that’s possible for you.

“Elephants and Embryos” — world premier reading of a play about genetic engineering, God, and cloning.  Service Leader: Richard Thieret, who has set up all the props and arranged the scenes and is seeking volunteer readers. Parts available: Mary (lab director who clones herself), Joseph (a mysterious Uzbek), Daniel (hopeless guard of the gate), Ester (zoo representative), four lab techs  (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John), sound effects person, narrator, and, briefly appearing, Adam and Eve.

MASK NOTES: Our board is still requiring KN95 or N95 masks (NO FABRIC MASKS, and no surgical masks, either) of folks entering the building for Sunday services or to use the restroom when we have outdoor events.We have many folks who truly appreciate us flipping the “usual narrative.” Usually Zoom is for those who are at risk where in-person places are not safe for them. At the fellowship, we’re doing Zoom for anyone who doesn’t want to wear a nk95 or n95 mask thus keeping the fellowship safe for the most vulnerable.We do, however, allow our presenters to unmask when speaking in the front of the fellowship. Some choose to stay masked.

Sunday October 16th: Mickey Hart returned to the Athens area last September to serve as the director of UCM Center: For Spiritual Growth & Social Justice. Mickey, who has lived most of his life in Athens, oversaw the programming and development of Ohio University’s LGBT Center for 12 years. During his years in Athens, he served on the UCM Board of Directors for nine years giving him insights into the history of the organization and institutional memory at a time when there was a void due to staff transitions in recent years. Mickey will discuss some of the past, present, and future of UCM Center. He will share his approach to the work of the organization, recent changes, program updates, and more.  Service Leader: Barb Harrison
