CANTON – This Sunday, Sept. 5, the Unitarian Universalist Church welcomes pulpit guest Galen Pletcher.

A member of the Canton congregation, Pletcher will recognize Labor Day with a sermon titled "Give Me Something to Do": Reflections on Work.

Pletcher ponders his relationship with work as he marks his retirement as dean of arts and sciences at SUNY Potsdam.

Pletcher, who has just retired after 15 years at Potsdam, will examine "what (besides money) work contributes to our lives," and consider "how paid work is different from unpaid work and whether we would be better off if we didn't have to work."

The congregation regularly welcomes guests to the pulpit to hear and learn from a variety of people and points of view.

The church recently welcomed new minister David S. Blanchard, who will return to the pulpit for the congregation's "Homecoming Sunday" next Sunday, Sept. 12.

The Unitarian Universalist Church is located at 3 1/2 East Main Street, across from the park in downtown Canton.

Sunday services and religious education for children begin at 10:30 a.m. and all are welcome. For more information visit
