Active Hope - Rev. Kelly Dignan
On this Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend, Rev. Kelly will explore the role of hope in creating the Beloved Community. She will share Joanna Macy’s work on Active Hope along with a process for creating a more sustainable and compassionate world.
and after service:
Let’s Create Some Magic! That’s the theme for our pledge canvass this year. Not sure what a pledge canvass is? It’s the process we go through to raise money for our church.
We’ll kick it off by having a fun event after church on Sunday, January 18th. All children and adults are invited and encouraged to come. Bring a sack lunch and join us for the movie Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. The church will provide popcorn and drinks.
- On February1st after the service there will be a Budget Forum where the Finance Ministry Group will present the Program Budget (how expenses are allocated across the programs we offer). A detailed line-item budget will be available, but not covered in depth.
- February 7th will be our annual canvass party. You’ll receive an official invitation closer to the time, but save the evening on your calendar. Be thinking about a costume you can wear (optional). And if you want to donate a pot of chili, think about how you might name it. (Yes - the chili competition lives on this year - with two prizes based on taste and name!) If you want to donate a pot of chili, contact Hollis Berendt email@example.com or Danelle Beauvais firstname.lastname@example.org
Does that sound familiar? Unitarian Universalist Church of Greeley does the same for us! As an
expression of our gratitude for this community that has our back and helps us transform, let’s create some magic!
