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.

2014-2015 Program Themes

 "Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?"

Operating under The Big Idea that Unitarian Universalism is all we teach, and the congregation is the curriculum, it is important that people have a better understanding of Unitarian Universalism.

Our programs theme for 2014-2015 will encourage and support people in our congregation in understanding our Unitarian Universalist roots (where do we come from?), what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist today (what are we?), and what is our vision for the future for our congregation and the possibilities for the future of Unitarian Universalism (where are we going?).  

With input from the Faith Development Team, the Worship Associates selected the following themes for us to explore together this year. Several of these come from the book "A House for Hope" by John Buerhens and Rebecca Parker.

Congregational Meeting on May 18

Motions Adopted at May 18 Congregational Meeting
Thanks to all who attended the Congregational Meeting on May 18.  All motions presented passed unanimously.  Members voted to elect the slate as presented by the Leadership Development Committee.  Members also agreed to modify our bylaws so that employees may not be Board members (see the new phrase in section 6.3.7 of our bylaws on the website).  Members voted to refinance with our bank so we have a lower interest rate.  The Annual Report highlighted many wonderful elements of our beloved community and will be available to watch online.  Indeed, we had a lot to celebrate at the Celebration Potluck Lunch.  Thanks for a great program year.  A special thank you to our outgoing elected leaders:  Chris Meyer, Steve Perkins, Carol Pinto, Joanna Benshoof, Karen Smith, Joanne Weiss, and Denise Benshoof.
