Weekly Update - 1/2/10

Happy New Year!
I hope you had a good holiday time, and that you enter 2010 with vigor and enthusiasm to see what this decade brings. Of course, some of what it will bring, will be what we bring to it. Are you pondering what areas of life and joy and justice you will be aiding in the coming weeks, months, years? The beginning of the year is a good time to reflect and review how we spend out precious energy. For me, an eagle seems to have captured my heart . . . and I will be spending more time helping our wildlife, after my experiences of the last week. I also am looking forward to renewing my passion towards helping our Unitarian schools in the Khasi Hills. What will it be for you?
Sunday Service (9:30 to 10:45am)

“Anniversary Sunday: All Are Invited”
Rev. Eva Cameron with Bill Chene as Worship Associate. Join us as we celebrate the founding of the Universalist branch of our church. On a cold day in January, in 1874, a group gathered to form a church for people who had questions, and yet still felt that God loved them just as much. They called themselves the Universalists. Come learn a bit about our past, and celebrate those early stalwarts of our faith. The children will join us as we serve Communion using our historic Universalist communion. And my message will include some learning about the idea of Open Communion.
