Are You Sleeping? (Thoughts from a peripatetic hurricane watcher - #1)

Dear Ones,

As I write this, Peter and I have decided, as have many of you, to hunker down and deal with whatever it is that is coming our way. Am I out of line to guess that some (perhaps many? maybe close to all?) of you are to some degree anxious? [Click "Read more..." to continue]
Our UU Water Ceremony and Ingathering -- Sept 3!

It’s Coming! Our annual Water Ceremony to be celebrated with an all ages service at UUFG on Sunday, September 3. On that day, I invite you to bring a small container of water, symbolizing a place where water has been important for you, or a location where water is pivotal to the wellbeing of our the planet.

This Sunday, April 23, we invite you to make a special effort to come to service (11 am), as we celebrate the courage, and the risk those folks took. (I say “those folks,” but truth is, many of those visionaries are still active members of UUFG today.) [Click "Read more..." to continue]

Maureen's Musings -- April, 2017

Easters and UUs?

Here it comes again, the perennial bête noire of religious liberals. What DO we do with Easter, a season so thoroughly enmeshed in a single story that many of us no longer find helpful? I’m talking, of course, about the resurrection of Jesus. It is so easy to dismiss the notion of bodily resurrection as an impossibility, reducing Easter to nothing more than a romantic reshaping of pre-Christian celebrations of spring.
