Notes from Penny….
*As the recession goes on let’s remember the gift of food items.
** Some of you have already come forward with a program you would like to do and a date you are able to do it. It’d be great to hear from others who would like to share a topic with the group.
“An unexamined faith is not worth having”. James LutheAdams
By Connie Goodbread, St. Lawrence District President:
We are the people of many myths. There is no fundamentalism in Unitarian Universalism. Therefore, UU’s should be comfortable with all religious truth. We should also be able to articulate our own faith clearly. We should be able to speak deeply and unafraid about what it means to be a UU.
