What's UUp on January 14?

Celebration of Life 11:00am

“Beyond Making America Great – UUs and MLK”
Speakers: David Cooper, an educator, poet, social justice advocate, and UU member will explore with First U member Brian Daly actions we can take to live our UU principles.

“Make America Great” was part of a slogan for a marketing campaign that changed America.  We are now engaged in a great battle for the soul of our country. UUs are active in this debate and have a special responsibility for engaging in activism because of our seven principles and direct connection with Martin Luther King’s principles of nonviolence. 

FYI
RE classes will resume this Sunday, January 14, including the newly re-organized Multigenerational One Room Schoolhouse (MORSH) meeting in the social hall along with new classes for adults. The new adult classes and descriptions are listed at http://firstulou.org/lre

Black Lives Matter Vigil  Join us after the service Sunday as we exit through the front door at Heywood House, and have our vigil on 4th Street. Our vigils provide an opportunity for church members and friends to speak up, identify as allies, and invite a conversation about race. It lasts about 30 minutes and signs are provided.

Shannon  Stromberg A memorial service for Shannon Stromberg will be held Sunday, January 14 at First Unitarian at 2:00pm. Contact Pam Middleton (pamiddleton1 [at] gmail.com) for more information about the service or Ron Zorn (zorn.ron [at] gmail.com) to help with the food or reception.

Coffee in the Social Hall Join us for a cup of coffee before or after the service! (If you are the one making coffee, please remember to just use one package per pot!).

Recycle Your Old Christmas Lights Your old lights can be turned into cash by First U’s Solar Array Project and used to buy more solar panels for First U!
