The theme for January is Prophecy

January 8 The GNOUU Memorial Service for 2016 will be held at First Church UU (2903 Jefferson Ave., or, Jefferson & Claiborne) at 11am. Filled with music, ending with a second line, your chance to lift up things you would like to lie in rest in the previous year.
January 15 The Everyday Prophets: A Daily Need, Part 1. This from the second Soul Matters exercise, “We all need everyday prophets in our lives. This month, let’s remember that they need us too.” Your minister looks at the juncture of everyday prophets with the prophetism of all believers to which UU scholar James Luther Adams has invited us.
January 22 The Everyday Prophets: Making History, or..., Part 2. Our turn into a shifted era (an inauguration) is accompanied by the guidance of James Luther Adams, a sage of yesteryear Unitarian Universalism, who devoted his life to the yin and yang of Unitarian Universalism: our desire and our action.
January 29 CCUU’s Members Celebrate the Life of a Celebrity Who Died in 2016. This is your chance to share the qualities/values that drew you to honor a celebrity who is no longer with us. If you are interested, please contact Rev. Jim to share the name of the individual you wish to honor. We will use what we can. Encouraging participation, but with apologies to you if your idea cannot be used.

Economic Inequality PDF Print E-mail

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.
