Offering Our Plate (Living Generously)
We are happy to report $288 was collected for the Holocaust Memorial, and $204 was collected for the California Wildfires.
This week Nancy Wiehagen spoke for the Transitional House of Greeley. The Transitional Houses' mission is to provide safety, stability, and opportunity for families in crisis through emergency shelter and comprehensive support services.
**Now that the nomination process has begun, we hope members will consider making a nomination. Using our plate in this way will help us to grow of spiritual practice, live more meaningfully, and help heal our world. Look for the colorful box that Sharlene Meydel decorated in the Foyer to make your suggestion! (must meet criteria)**
Sunday, Jan. 13th - “Ubuntu – I Am Because We Are” - Rev. Aaron Norris
Rev. Norris asks this week: What is Community and Why Does it matter? After spending the past few months talking about calling and responsibility and focusing in December on Family, we will expand our focus to something wider: community. Using the southern African philosophy of Ubuntu as a touchstone for a broader conversation about how we might walk in this world.
