The Social Justice Committee is ordering more Standing on the Side of Love T-shirts.  We will be buying regular tees and women’s cut tees.  Carey Hall-Warner and Pam Luke will be taking orders through April 2nd.

The Social Justice Committee has chartered a bus to go to the People’s Climate March on Saturday, April 29th.  Bus tickets are $50 with driver tip included.  See Carey or Pam to reserve your seat.

Now that we use IconCMO to organize our church data, it is possible to print a directory with photographs of all of our members and supporters.  To do this, the Membership Committee needs your photo!  See Rosalee Pfister to have your picture taken or send your own digital file to membership@uufp.org.

 

 

Yoga is a universal practice to increase awareness physically, mentally and spiritually.  We meet in the Sanctuary at 9:30am every Tuesday morning.  The first class is free, so come check it out!  There’s more information on the general bulletin board or you can contact Nancy Sessoms.

 

 

Remem Holocaust

Julian Padowicz, who was seven years old and living in Warsaw, Poland, when WW II broke out, will talk about his experiences as a “confused” Jew during the Holocaust and after, at Adult Forum over the next two Sundays in observance of Holocaust Remembrance Month. The two-part talk is entitled, “A Streetcar Named Eternity,” and is based on his award-winning memoir, “Mother and Me: Escape from Warsaw 1939” and its sequels, “A Ship in the Harbor,” “Loves of Yulian,” and, “When the Diamonds were Gone.”

In Part 1, he will tell about German bombs, Soviet occupation, and an against-all-advice escape over the Carpathian Mountains. Part 2 deals mostly with his struggle to fit his war-traumatized psyche into “The American Dream.”

Julian has told these stories in libraries, colleges, churches, and synagogues throughout his former home state of Connecticut, as well as other parts of the country.

 

The Leadership Development Committee (LDC) is offering the final LEADING YOUR CONGREGATION INTO THE FUTURE workshop Saturday, April 8th.

This event is being offered to everyone who wishes to “… learn 21st Century skills of conducting and participating in religious or business committee meetings.”  These skills are valuable to everyone in the Fellowship, and these skills are needed in the greater community.

Bob Smith and Donna Carter are the facilitators, and they are planning a concise, educational, and entertaining morning.  The LDC will be offering a light Continental Breakfast and snacks for the breaks.

Child care will be available if LDC is notified by Monday April 3rd.

Please come prepared to take notes.  A $10 donation is suggested to cover expenses.

Breakfast starts @ 8:30am

Workshop will end @ 1:00pm

Please register on-line at ldc@uufp.org .
