Dear Ones, First, I want to remind you that this coming Sunday, March 31, 2019, is “Bring A Friend Sunday!” It will be a good time for people new to Unitarian Universalism to worship with us for the first time. We will formally welcome some new members, and it’s the Fifth Sunday of the month, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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! Last Sunday we had many announcements at the […]

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 […]

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 […]
