“Better Together” in Youth Education

Better Together–Yard Party
Sunday, Oct 21 during the 11 am service

Caregivers and their children/grandchildren from UniKids, UniFriends and Uniteens (K-8th graders) are encouraged to wear outdoor yard work clothes to assist with removing pine cones from the lawn and sweeping/raking pine needles into the bark areas. This service project was a huge success last time, and we anticipate smiles of accomplishment again this year.

*In case of rain we have plastic ponchos. If participation does not fit for some, there will an alternative plan for those inside.

Ready for a Paradigm Climb

“May you live in interesting times!” reads the infamous Chinese curse/blessing. I don’t know about you, but I am finding these times go way beyond interesting. More like compelling. Worrisome. Distressing. Troubling. The polarity wrought from the so-called culture wars we are witnessing continues to amplify, sending both sides to their respective corners. The question arises – what can be done to heal the chasm that seems to widen with every news cycle.

As the two of us excitedly prepare to embark on our trip to Unity Village for the annual Unity Peoples’ Convention, we are anticipating an inspiring and energizing visit.
