UU Basel Mother's day Service
"Reflections on Mothering"
Guest Ministers: Charlotte Cowtan and Amy Carol Webb.
Both Amy and Charlotte are delighted to be in Basel with their children this Mother's Day, and have collaborated to provide this service in celebration of mothers and mothering.
Charlotte has recently retired from 30 years of service as a UU minister. Over the years she has ministered with more than 70 UU congregations in the USA and Canada (as minister, District Executive, congregational consultant and interim minister). Amy, a UU minister and popular singer/songwriter , last visited UU Basel in October, 2012. She serves the River of Grass UU congregation in Florida as well as providing ministry as a hospice chaplain.
Following the refreshment break, from 12:30 - 13:30, Rev. Amy will lead us in a family-friendly sing-a-long. Please stay to enjoy this special chance to sing together with Amy.

Services are generally held on the Second Sunday of each month at 11:00 with exceptions made to accommodate holiday time or visiting ministers.
These meetings are held at "Im Lohnhof 8", just up the hill from Barfüsserplatz, or a short walk from the Musikakadamie tram stop of the number 3 tram. Walk past the fountain, bear right past the old church, proceed through the arch; find us to the right on the ground floor below Centrepointe.
There will also be children's programming available. If you plan to bring your children, it would help our coordinators to know in advance how many children and what ages to expect. If you plan to bring your children, please send us an email.
