Our Theme for June is “Simplicity”

June 5, The Courage to Be Simple
. Why do downsizing, resting, de-cluttering, or finding an easier life seem so difficult to achieve? Rev. Jim’s message invites you to question how you do what you do as we explore the courage required in the quest for a simpler life.

June 12, From Your Questions: How Important Are Our Principles? We carefully examined our principles during this past year. In your minister’s final message before his summer-time recess we examine the many ways these principles provide solidity and opportunity for Unitarian Universalists.

June 19, Remembering Ed Malone. Alan Malone, a member of our Worship team will be our speaker on Father’s Day. Alan will provide a brief history of his story with his old man and how that relationship created the man he is today.

June 26, Black Lives Matter. While 6 of our members are attending the final day of the Unitarian Univeralist General Assembly, Rev. Melanie Morel-Ensminger invites us to look back at the last day of the 2015 GA and the approval of the Action of Immediate Witness to Support Black Lives Matter.
Second Sunday Collection -- June 12 PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 23 May 2016 14:03
Our charitable plate collection in June will benefit The Original Big 7’s All Youth Mardi Gras Indian Tribe, the Red Flame Hunters.  It is time to begin fundraising for their 2016/2017 season. The kids start sewing now and their season ends St Joseph's Night 2017. They had 20 kids participate this year, all sewing their suits and learning the chants in their spare time after school. This year they hope to bring in even more. 

Our donation will be used to purchase supplies so that they can complete all of the suits for the over 20 kids that want so much to be a part of the tribe and to march.  Volunteers in beading and sewing are also most welcome.  They meet regularly after school at Director Ed Buckner’s house, located at 1825 Elysian Fields Avenue.

Economic Inequality PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 04 November 2015 13:31
Economic inequality…income inequality…wealth inequality.  It’s a popular topic right now, with newspaper columns and blogs considering it and the UUA adopting it as a study issue.  Is it really a problem?  If so, what does the problem look like?  What’s causing it?  What can be done about it?


Your economic inequality ministry – Shirley Peak, Bruce Blenkarn, Suzy Mague – have been studying the materials available and will lead study sessions for CCUU members and friends; members and friends of the other GNOUU churches; and members of the general public who want to join us.  We have scheduled two sessions:  Monday night, November 30, 7 p.m.; Monday night, January 11, 7 p.m., both at the church. A third session is anticipated during March. At our first session we will consider current economic conditions, focusing on a list of questions.  Two examples:  How does the pay of the average CEO compare to the pay of the average worker in the same firm?  Did the income of the average American increase or decrease, adjusted for inflation, between 2009 and 2012?  Having reviewed the information, we anticipate a thoughtful discussion of whether this situation is a problem, and if so, why?

We invite you to join us to explore this important topic.  Please talk with any one of us if you have questions.
