    January Ministry Theme - Second Principle: Justice, Equity,
    and Compassion in Human Relations

     

    Words to live by: That dream shall have a name after all, and it will not be vengeful but wealthy with love and compassion and knowledge. And it will rise in this heart which is our America.
    ~Simon Ortiz

    Stay safe and warm, dear Souls!

    January 20 – MLK Sunday - “Daring to Love & Claim ‘Some-bodiness’ ”

    One Service at 10:00

    Worship Leader: Reverend Carolyn Patierno

    Rev. Dr. King named “some-bodiness” as a kind of awakening. Might these times be, as Rev. Dr. King claimed in 1964, a “great time to be alive”? Come and celebrate his powerful legacy.

    Good Neighbor Offering: UU Service Committee – see page 10 of our newsletter for details

    Food Pantry Offering: Meal in a can (ravioli, beef stew)


     

    January 27 – “Countering Cynicism in the Quest for Justice and Compassion in Human Relations”

    Two services: 9:30 and 11:15 a.m.

    Worship Leader: Reverend Carolyn Patierno

    Cynicism is dangerous. It shuts down the mind and heart. And there is easy passage to cynicism in these difficult times. How does our faith keep cynicism at bay?
