We Raised the Paddle for the Intern Fund
Thanks to the Raise the Paddle at the Auction and additional gifts, we have enough money in our Intern Fund to begin the search. THANK YOU! We might get lucky and find an intern for next church year, if not we will be first in line for the following year. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who donated for our future.
If you missed the auction and would like to add to the fund, please contact Rev. Marian.
From Our Nominating Committee
Church leadership is an excellent way to deepen your connections to the people and mission of our church. If you know someone—including yourself!—who you think would be great in a leadership role at First UU, the Nominating Committee is taking nominations now. Forms are available from any Nominating Committee member or in the committee’s mailbox in the Volunteer Workroom, or you can talk to any committee member, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. See Gina Phillips, Dana Reynolds, Shirley Lange, Heidi Drake, Kelly McConaughey, or Barb Fiorini for more information. Deadline is March 6.
***Middle Hour…Middle Hour…Middle Hour***
Learning Lab: Postcard Writing
Facilitator: Ohma Willette
Let your rage out — on a postcard! Does rage boil in you about guns, bullies, crumbling bridges, income inequality, low voter turnout, racial profiling, the border wall, ICE or something else? Splash your rage boldly across a postcard — during Middle Hour — We’ll have postcards, stamps, pens and addresses. Express YOUR rage! Speak out. Express your distress. Will you get a response? Unlikely. Still, YOU have expressed your pain. Think of the postal workers who might read your words and the staff person who sorts the mail and the one who delivers it. Don’t forget the individual who empties the trash — your words could reach beyond the intended. Does it do any good? It could help you put your pain into words — that’s a positive.
Middle Hour is Fun!
