Steve Cook is a member and of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Wayne County. He is a Commissioned Lay Minister.

Titles of programs/sermons and a brief statement of content on each:

  • Want what you have. Do what you can. Be who you are—Forrest Church and his mantra of sincerity, authenticity, faith and reality. See how Church used it, Fred Rogers lived it, and Ruby, a drug addict and prostitute, personified it.
  • The Gratitude Attitude—Intend to be grateful every day. These tips on the practice of gratitude will help open your heart, inspire and empower you. Gratitude is a key to peace, love and your sacred self. Make it a habit.
  • Risky Business: Get Out of Your Comfort Zone—Embrace reasonable risk and uncertainty. Get out on that limb! You'll become more emotionally resilient, confident, happier, and more deeply engaged in life.
  • Principles and Perpetrators – Our Principles provide help in dealing with difficult legal clients and issues. More real-life stories of the effects of compassion, empathy, respect and patience in dealing with people who get on the wrong side of the law.
  • Joy and Happiness – What’s not to like? - Who doesn’t want to be happier and have a bit more joy in their lives? From the Dali Lama and Desmond Tutu to Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman – real ways to be happier and experience more joy in your life.
  • Faith – One Size Does Not Fit All - This hot button topic means many different things to UU’s. Belief, doubt, trust, loyalty, commitment, secular, religious, irrational, engaged, ironclad, unshakable, absolute… Like prayer, how can we have faith in a way that resonates with UU beliefs?
