This Sunday: “Thinking About Our Thinking to Make Better Decisions”

Dr. Mark Berger is a history professor emeritus at Columbus State University. He’ll show us how recent ideas in behavioral economics can reveal surprises about how we all make choices.

Dr. Mark Berger

Mark has long been interested in understanding history through psychology, and he’s written many articles for historical journals. He’s also the author of The Revolution in the New York Party System, 1840-1860.Mark grew up in New York City, and earned his doctorate at City University of New York. He’s been a member of our Fellowship since 2000, and he’s a regular at our Wednesday night discussion group and our Friday lunch group. (Visitors are welcome at both. Check our calendar for details.

Members of our UU Fellowship don’t share a creed. We’re a community of Christians, Buddhists, Jews, Wiccans, humanists  and others, including atheists and agnostics. (Yes atheists and agnostics can have rich spiritual lives.) Rather than demanding adherence to dogma, we support each other in our own unique searches for truth and meaning. That doesn’t mean we don’t believe in anything. We support and promote the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism, which emphasize respect for each other and for our planet.

Sound interesting? The best way to learn more is to attend the Sunday morning service. Visitors are always welcome. We are friendly people. Here’s our Sunday schedule:

  • 9:15 a.m. to noon. Free childcare available.
  • 9:15 a.m. Adult Religious Education. We explore all the world’s great religious and philosophical traditions in an informal setting. This week’s topic is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, also known as the Mormon Church.
  • 9:15 a.m. Children’s religious education. Kids also learn about the world’s great religions and about respecting each other and the planet.
  • 10:15 a.m. Coffee and conversation before the service.
