From Dr. Alex Riegel

Dr. Riegel’s Sermon Series Zoom Discussion

For my first three sermons as your developmental minister at First U, I chose to speak on the subject of love, i.e., the transformational process by which we “become the person we want to be before we die,” what the mechanism is for that transformation, and what it looks like to act from love rather than the instincts.  And of course, for those of you who were present, you are well aware that I introduced evolutionary psychology as a significant part of this message.

On Wednesday evening, Sept 6, from 7:30 – 9pm (though we may end sooner), I will be leading a discussion on this sermon series, via Zoom.  Any topic I covered in this sermon series, or any topic you think may also be relevant to this sermon series, will be discussed.  (What we discuss will be based on your interests/questions, rather than another presentation by me.)

If you would like to participate in this discussion, please respond directly to me, via email (  I will send out a Zoom link from my own Zoom account, approximately one hour prior to the discussion.

Also, if you know anyone who is not a member of First U but might like to attend, that is fine.  If so, please direct them to YouTube where they can view the sermons ahead of time (or at the very least, this past Sunday’s sermon).

Finally, I am attaching the insert I included in this past Sunday’s order of service, for those of you who may want to revisit the evol. psych. material before we meet. Click Here.
