UUCG Book Club on Tuesday, November 28, at 7:00pm
West with the Night, by Beryl Markham
West with the Night is a 1942 memoir by Beryl Markham, chronicling her experiences growing up in Kenya in the early 1900s, leading to a career as a bush pilot there.
Born Beryl Clutterbuck in the middle of England, she and her father moved to Kenya when she was a girl, and she grew up with a zebra for a pet; horses for friends; baboons, lions, and gazelles for neighbors. She made money by scouting elephants from a tiny plane. And she would spend most of the rest of her life in East Africa as an adventurer, a racehorse trainer, and an aviatrix–she became the first person to fly nonstop from Europe to America, the first woman to fly solo east to west across the Atlantic. Hers was indisputably a life full of adventure and beauty.
The Book Club will not be meeting in December. Our selection for the January 22, 2018 meeting is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.
Winter Solstice on December 23 with Magical Arts at 3:30. Ritual at 6:00pm
Come and celebrate the longest night of the year and the birth of new light. This Winter Solstice ritual is open to the public and led by members of the Sylvan Sanctuary Grove of Druids. Ritual begins at 6:00 on December 23 with shared snacks and fellowship afterwards. Ritual attire is welcome but not required. All ages are invited to come early for Magical Arts of the Crafty Pagan at 3:30 too.
Covenant Groups are for Connecting!
Registration now open for groups that begin in January 2018
Would you like to connect with others from UUCG at a deeper level through meaningful listening and sharing? If so, be sure to sign-up for one of the Covenant Groups that will be restarting in January. There will be 3 different sessions from which to choose: 1st and 3rd Wednesday evenings, 2nd and 4th Wednesday evenings, and 2nd & 4th Thursday mornings. Each session will meet for 8 weeks for two hours each time. The discussions for each session will center around the monthly themes for our worship services, and will offer a chance for you to share from your heart in response to several readings on the theme. There is also a time at the beginning of each session to tell about anything that might be on your mind or heart, and that you want to name so you can be more present. It is easy to register for one of these groups on the UUCG website by clicking on the link at the bottom of the homepage that says “Register for Events”. Scroll down to “Covenant Groups”, select the session for which you would like to enroll, and fill out the registration form. There is a Covenant Group just waiting for you!
Best of Appetizer Cook-off Contest on January 21 during Potluck Lunch
Our Cook-offs resume in January with Best Appetizers. Online registration is available for you to enter your recipe directly into the registration form, and share a story about your recipe as well. (Providing a printed copy of your recipe to display with your soup is also very helpful so that people can make sure there are no ingredients that they are allergic to in your soup.)
