To Be Continued: Coming Home

Dear Ones, How did you feel the first time you attended a Unitarian Universalist service? Over the years I’ve facilitated many newcomer classes, and I’ve heard many describe the experience as feeling like they’d come home. I’ve been thinking about this, as a few people have asked recently about publicity for UUFB. I remember the […]

To Be Continued: Listening to trans voices

Dear Ones, You may have seen this article in the most recent UU World by Kimberly French, titled “After L, G, and B: Listening to transgender and nonbinary people is about respect, relationship, and whether we can be a truly inclusive faith.” Yes, that’s a long title. Unfortunately, the article focuses on the cisgender author’s experience, and […]

To Be Continued: Lots to do!

Dear Ones, Kudos to the Social and Environmental Justice Committee for a fabulous fair during last Sunday’s Fellowship Hour! The SEJ – and other members of UUFB – give time, talent, and treasure to a number of organizations and agencies in our area. The displays were inspiring!

To Be Continued: Dealing with trauma

Dear Ones, This past Sunday we held a memorial service for a dear member who took her own life. This coming Saturday we will celebrate the life of a founding member who died after a long period in hospice care. These are difficult times for our Fellowship. You may have heard of the UU Trauma Response […]

To Be Continued: Fertile ground

Dear Ones, If you were here for our service on February 3rd, which introduced and celebrated the Pagan festival of Imbolc; you probably took home a packet of seeds. Tom and I planted ours – and my radishes have sprouted above ground! We’ve planted a couple of small trees since buying our house, but we […]

To Be Continued: Joy & Synchronicity

Dear Ones, Have you ever had just the right person, just the right job, or just the right words come to you at just the right time? This experience of synchronicity, when things just seem to come together and “click” has only happened in a major way to me a few times in my life. […]
