Dear Reader,

Here is your Wednesday, January 22, 2020 edition of the Tapestry weekly digest of upcoming events and special announcements. All events are open to anyone who wishes to join.

Upcoming Sunday Service at 11:00 AM:

Toxic
by Randy Partain

Our society has been talking more openly about toxic behavior in recent years. Maybe you've ended a relationship with someone at some point in your life because they seemed toxic to you. We can't always disengage easily from people we think of as toxic. They may be in our workplace, in our social organizations, or even in our families. Sometimes, there might even be a hint of toxic people in church communities. What would it feel like to be equipped to fearlessly handle toxic material? Would you believe that our Unitarian Universalist principles provide us with guidance about addressing toxicity? Join us as we explore our capability to create a less toxic world.


Upcoming Events From Our Calendar:


January 23 (Thursday), 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM: Mixed Bag Book Club

 


Announcements:


Big Thicket Tree Planting


Morning Forum

Are you interested in finding ways to bring our mission & vision to life by volunteering in the community? Join us at this Sunday's Morning Forum to help brainstorm about some potential social justice volunteer opportunities that the congregation could do as a 5th Sunday service project. We also need to consider the issues in scheduling these activities during our usual worship time as suggested by some members.

Future suggested topics are:

  • Equal Rights Amendment
  • Immigration
  • Pet Appreciation, Blessing of Animals
  • Stewardship
  • Environmental Action
  • Supporting Women & Girls Around the World
  • Creating a Pollinator Garden

Religious Exploration (RE) Programs

  • Nursery: 10:45-12:45, ages 0-3, in room at back left hand corner of Fellowship Hall

Jan. 5, 2019: This Sunday is an inter-generational service, meaning everyone is welcome to attend the solstice service. Nursery care is available, but there will be no religious education classes this Sunday.

Upcoming: Jan. 9, 2020, 6:00-8:30

  • Middle School and High School: attend the service in the sanctuary on Sundays; religious exploration of Buddhism this month, social events, and social action/community work.

Upcoming: Jan. 12, 2019

  • Nursery: 10:45-12:45, ages 0-2, in room at back left hand corner of Fellowship Hall
  • Spirit Play: 11:00-12:00, ages 3-6, in room at back left hand corner of Fellowship Hall
  • Elementary RE: 11:15-12:00, 1st-5th grades, starts in the service, then moves to the Fellowship Hall after the "story for all ages."

Spirit Play is Montessori-based on story and ritual, play and creativity. Spirit Play gives children the tools to make meaning of their lives and seeks to engage children in the existential questions about life within the context of the Unitarian Universalist faith.

Elementary RE program: We will be exploring the themes within the context of Unitarian Universalism and building upon the story for all ages the youth will hear during the service.
