President's Message
October 2013 -- Connection, Conversation, Commitment: Fall Stewardship Drive

We are a place of big ideas here -- a place where people come longing to connect to others and to make a change in their own lives and in the world.  We are a place that asks you to be welcoming to others; to be open to new perspectives and opportunities; to keep asking more of yourself and each other; and to be generous with your time, talents, and treasures.  Here, we allow ourselves to dream of the world we want to live in, and we work, day by day, to get a little closer to it.

Supporting Our Own Adventure

The President's Perspective -- July 2013

Our church year runs from July to June, and this new year begins with major changes in our pulpit. Rev. Garmon gave his final sermon on the last day of June, and we celebrated our time with him with a send off party after service. He and LoraKim took with them the season log (which they brought with them from El Paso) and the chalice that was gifted to them by our congregation when they were installed as our co-ministers back in 2007. Our well wishes to him on his new adventure are joined by our well wishes for our own new adventure of the “interim” period.

A Preview of the Year Ahead: 2013-14

President's Report to the Board -- July 2013

This coming year will be one of adjustment and reflection for our Fellowship as we will be welcoming Rev. Benjamin Maucere for the first year of his two-year interim in a few short weeks.  With the assistance of our Interim Team (Hans Alborn, Tom Bullock, Walter Cole, Janet Davies, and Joann Mossa), we will each be asked to engage deeply with each other, with Unitarian Universalism, and with questions of who we are and what we are to become.  This is an exciting time for us all.
