Sunday, December 8, 2013: Gene Schlueter and Joe Mold will jointly present at Sunday Service. They will tell of their personal journeys along the Buddhist path, sharing how/ why they were initially attracted to Buddhism, the many different paths within the Buddhist tradition, and the similarities and differences in the paths each of them follows. As Christianity is composed of many different denominations and sects, Buddhism also encompasses many different beliefs and traditions.
There will be a forum this Sunday morning, December 8 starting at 9AM, at the Bonifas, UPSTAIRS in the RE room.
The next regular board meeting is Sunday, December 8 at 9 a.m. at the Bonifas. All meetings are open to the membership. If ever you have any agenda items for the Board to consider, please submit them to Russ two weeks before the next board meeting at email@example.com. Minutes from the October board meeting are attached.

The HOPE AT THE INN (HATI) is progressing quickly, and several community volunteers are needed. This interfaith project’s purpose is to shelter homeless people (in Escanaba and Gladstone) through the cold months at several area churches. Hope at the Inn is scheduled to start December 16th through the 23rd, but we need to get commitments and training before start-up. We need to know the number of people who would be willing to be volunteers for various roles, such as cooks, check-in volunteers, laundry, and oversight volunteers for the evening hours. There will be a training coming up Monday November 11th 6-8 p.m. at Escanaba’s First Presbyterian Church. They are one of the host churches. Please contact Bruce Hansen or Pam Allsopp to answer questions and sign people up.
Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism
- The inherent worth and dignity of every person.
- Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations.
- Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations.
- A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.
- The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and society at large.
- The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all.
- Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
