Weekly Update

Weekly Update - 1/8/10  I"m just back from ice skating on the lovely outdoor rink in Cedar Falls!  It was a blast to watch the sun set as I glided along on the ice! Its been a couple years since I got out ice skating, and I forgot just how much fun it can be. I remembered it was fun, but remembering and doing are two different 

things!  My challenge to you this week is to do something FUN you haven't done in a while, or maybe something  you've never done but always wanted to . . .  Let me know how it goes! I'm always on the lookout for more fun  things to do. And I love it when you share your life stories with me!  Ready, set, go!

Chalice Lighter Sunday Is January 24, 2010!

Many UUSBHC members have become Chalice Lighters. Chalice Lighter pledges to respond with a contribution of $20.00 or more, when the call comes to "light the chalice" somewhere in the Prairie Star District. There are three calls each year.

Chalice Lighter funds are used to support growth through Chalice Lighters Grants to new or existing Unitarian Universalist congregations for a minister, religious education professional, music, social justice, office staff, building or land and innovative growth strategies. Chalice Lighters in our 70 congregations in Minnesota, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin have combined their $20.00 or more in contributions to help more than 34 Congregations grow over the past 20 years.

For more information, or to enroll as a Chalice Lighter, contact Jim Paprocki at or 319 296-3737. A member also may enroll online, by visiting the Prairie Star District website at
