APRIL 6 SUNDAY FORUM
Greetings…. As members of the Sunday Service Committee, John G., Dan and Bruce are preparing to do a workshop on funeral/memorial service preparation. It will be a hands-on affair and hopefully people will actually do some work in preparing for their end of life services. This will be a guided discussion about ways to plan or document preferences for your own memorial/funeral service. Concrete examples will be shared with anyone who wishes to participate.
We are looking at the Sunday time slot on April 6th from 10:30 – Noon.
Zen Meditation Schedule for March 2014
March 2nd 4-6pm Bonifas Arts Center
March 16th 4-6pm Bonifas Arts Center
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.
We meet the 2nd and 4th Sundays of every month at the Bonifas Art Center at 10:30 A.M. Enter through the parking lot entrance. We welcome all people who are seeking a liberal spiritual community and we celebrate diversity within our midst.
