Sunday, June 5th- Slow and Steady?- Elizabeth Mount
Adulthood sometimes seems like a never ending parade of work just waiting to be done. Though opportunities to keep busy abound, what might be the value of slowing down to be more present? Nurturing our inner selves requires us to have patience and to think about what time we spend on different activities, simplifying in order to make space to find out what’s truly important to us.
Other News and Reminders
LFS Backpack Drive-
For those of you who aren’t aware, the Lutheran Family Services Refugee & Asylee Program office is a ½ block from our UU church and has been using classroom space at the church for job readiness classes on Tuesdays and Wednesday afternoons. The UU church of Greeley has also participated in a winter attire drive last winter and helped Sarah Gostenik provide baby carriers to refugees in Greece this last March. Now, gearing up for the upcoming school year, LFS is hosting a backpack drive for refugee and foster care students in our area. If you’d like to participate, please see the flyer on the bulletin board in the foyer for details and you can drop off at the LFS office (1502 9th Ave) by July 22nd, or contact Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also contact Sarah if you have an interest in volunteering with LFS or learning more about refugee issues. Thank you for supporting our refugees from Somalia, Burma, Cuba and Eritrea and making them feel welcome in Greeley as they work towards self-sufficiency!
