What's happening at the UUCG?
Oct. 23rd - Oct. 29th 2018
October 28th – “Responsibility & Fear: A Love Story” - Julie Miller
Blaming has become a common part of our everyday culture. We examine the question, "Can you be right and without responsibility?" There are burdens and blessings that can come from confronting our fears about responsibility. We often create our own Boogie Man that lurks in the shadows and keeps us from being responsible. So what do we do? Let's find out.
RE: Class #4 Tepeu and Gucumatz- we'll also be working on Sugar Skulls if you missed last week.
A Note From Rev. Aaron (Living Generously)
I am excited that we are considering moving away from keeping the service plate and offering it to local non-for-profits, Unitarian Universalist oriented charities and emergency relief groups. When the nomination process begins, I hope that you will consider making a nomination. I believe this act of generosity will not only raise our profile in the community, but it will also come back to us in the form of new interest in being a member of a church with such a unique program. Using our plate in this way will help us to grow of spiritual practice, live more meaningfully, and help heal our world. Email Kathy Vaughn @ firstname.lastname@example.org your nomination or the criteria for a nomination.
Worship is central to what we as a faith community do. Regardless of what other contributions we make during the week to this Beloved Community, once a week we gather together as a whole and share powerful experience. There events do not happen without a tremendous amount of planning, collaboration and thoughtful exploration. You can bring your unique talents to this community and help us all with this important project. The Worship Committee is seeking additional members! If you are interested in becoming involved in worship planning this year, please contact Brian or Shelly Gaza for more information about attending our next committee meeting (email@example.com / firstname.lastname@example.org ). Thank you!

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Greeley invites you to attend with him "Grapes of Wrath" on Thursday, November 15 at 7:30 PM. The play has cast some of our very own children as and preformed at the Langworthy Theatre. Adult tickets are $19 (seniors & faculty/staff of UNC are $17). Rev. Norris says he'll coordinate the purchase the group’s tickets on Monday the 5th. RSVP to Rev. Aaron Norris, Minister or email before then so he has an accurate headcount and so we can plan a pre-play dinner for those interested.
UNC describes the play as based on the “[r]enowned first as a novel, and then as a prize-winning motion picture, the story of the Joad family and their flight from the dust bowl of Oklahoma is familiar to all. Desperately proud, but reduced to poverty by the loss of their farm, the Joads pile their few possessions on a battered old truck and head west for California, hoping to find work and a better life. Led by the indomitable Ma Joad, who is determined to keep the family together at any cost, and by the volatile young Tom Joad, an ex-convict who grows increasingly impatient with the intolerance and exploitation that they encounter on their trek to the “promised land.” And yet, despite the anguish and suffering that it depicts, the play becomes in the final essence a soaring and deeply moving affirmation of the indomitability of the human spirit and of the essential goodness and strength that—then as now—reside in the hearts and minds of the "common man," throughout the world. Winner of the 1990 Tony Award and Outer Critics Circle Award."
