Where do you turn?

Just when you think your heart can’t break anymore and things can’t get worse, they do.

People we count on to make us laugh are just as devastated as we are. Leadership is more like a battlefield. Unlike before, no one seems to say, “This, too, shall pass.” Phrases like ‘new normal’ can send a shiver down your spine.

Church is really about community, regardless of brand. Just singing a hymn on Sunday or watching children’s eyes light up with a story or heading out after work to help prepare a meal for others can elevate your spirits. The UU Fellowship is made up of people who are willing to cut the grass, paint, guide a discussion, lead a committee, serve on a committee—the list is endless.coffee-blurred

It’s frightening to consider a world without the thousands of communities that give us shelter from hatred and furnish us with a little laughter when there doesn’t seem much that’s funny.

Books!

Fall is a great time to box up your old books and bring them to Judy Remsberg. Judy will sell them on Amazon.com and the proceeds will all benefit the Fellowship.

A great Newport News partnership

Feeding the food-challenged can seem overwhelming but St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and the UU Fellowship have made it feel achievable. Their respective members have made food a major focus of time, talent and treasure.

Men eating

One of the many meals served at St. Paul’s.

Proven results!

The Good Friday meals, lead by Donna Sprock, have been so successful that the fifth Fridays of each month have been added, organized by Sarah Edwards.

But we can do more

Will you please consider giving more this Sunday when the basket comes to you? Your gifts mean more meals and less hunger for those who need it.
