Judith Meyers is content to be home, but sleeping a lot and more tired. Visitors are welcome, but please call the house phone and schedule your visit in advance. Care givers (Home Instead) is providing 24/7 care and they will likely be the ones who will answer the phone. Short visits are best as Judy tires easily.
Just to let you know – a blooming lavender plant, in a matching pot was delivered on Friday to Judy. It presented a “Welcome Home” from the congregation.
Professional Painting Complete! Check out the exterior of church (all trim and doors).
Who Wants a Vacation?
I do, and I’d love for you to join me for the Western Unitarian Universalist Life Festival aka WUULF, at the Ghost Ranch in beautiful northern New Mexico, June 20-26. The theme for this year is “Fun, Facts and Faith.” We will have three theme speakers: Camilla Dodson, the daughter of a Lesotho chief will bring the Fun; Sherry Burr, an expert on international law will bring the facts; and Nathan Mesnikoff, UU minister and director of spiritual care and volunteer services at Memorial Hospital, will bring the faith
In addition to the theme speakers, our own WUULFies offer plenty of fun, crafty, educational, and thoughtful workshops. We gather every morning for spiritual centering with our camp minister, Beth Chronister, and again in the afternoon for social hour where we share fellowship over food and spirits of the liquid kind. Throughout the day, you can choose to attend workshops, hike the epic landscape of Ghost Ranch, or just kick back under the Wisdom Tree. We will play games, tell stories, tie dye, drum, dance and sing throughout the week.
If you have school age kids, WUULF is a fantastic opportunity to spend time as a family, and also enjoy some grown-up time while the young ones are in their own programs.
Registration is now open for WUULF 2016 and will remain open until May 1 or until camp fills. Scholarships are available. Check out our website WUULF.org for more information and registration forms. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions at firstname.lastname@example.org 970-224-5443
