Unitarian Universalism (UU) Sources
  • Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;
  • Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love;
  • Wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;
  • Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;
  • Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.
  • Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.

Amnesty Write-For-Rights November 30 - December 14

A History of Letter Writing

Every year around Human Rights Day on December 10, hundreds of thousands of people around the world send a message to someone they've never met. Letter writing has always been at the heart of Amnesty International's work and 53 years of human rights activism shows us that words really do have the power to change lives.

Last year, hundreds of thousands of people in 143 countries around the world took a record-breaking 2,373,422 actions. Three of the Prisoners of Conscience featured in Write for Rights 2013 - Yorm Bopha, Vladimir Akimenkov, and Mikhail Kosenko - were released, and nearly all of the Individuals whose cases were featured told us that the burst of activism generated by the campaign helped to inspire and encourage them as they continue to struggle for justice.

Pledge Drive

Paving the Way to the Future

Please help “Pave the Way to the Future” by sending in your pledge for UUCG’s 2015 Annual Pledge Drive.  Brochures and forms are available in the foyer and online.  This year’s brochure describes the Board’s proposal to create positions for a  part-time Choir Director and Program Assistant as well as providing overdue increases for our current staff. We need every active member and friend of UUCG to submit a pledge form either on-line or in paper.  Whether you pledge $5,000, $1,500, $500, or $50, every contribution provides a stepping stone to move us forward in our shared ministry with one another and the community around us.  We have responses on 87 out of the 155 packets delivered with $113,724 pledged out of our goal of $141,000.

Words of Wisdom? Daily Devotionals on New Blog

Words of Wisdom? Daily Devotionals: wordsofwisdom.uucg.org
Each month, our community focuses on a particular theme.  Through this blog, we invite you to explore those themes with us through daily reflections that may become for you a way of finding wisdom on your way.  Or, they may lead you to your own reflections that become wisdom. That's why we call this blog "Words of Wisdom" QUESTION MARK.  That little question mark is our invitation for you to join the reflection. You may sign on to the blog each day, follow links you see from Facebook, or sign up to follow this blog with email reminders. You are also invited to contribute a daily reflection if you feel inspired. Contact Christiana McQuain or Bob Patrick.
