All members, friends and visitors of the Miami Valley UU Fellowship are hereby summoned for Jury Duty on Sunday, July 10, 2011 to render a verdict in the case of "Mother Earth vs. World's People - Perhaps the Most Important Trial in the History of Civilization". To be held in the courtroom of His Honor the Judge located at 8690 Yankee St. Failure to comply with this summons will result in tiresome whining by the Producer, Director, and members of the hardworking cast of this serious, but amusing, play.
Humanitarian Giving Action Group Offering
During June, the Humanitarian Giving Action Group welcomes donations for Homefull. Your support is critical as Homefull strives to fulfill its mission: "to work to end homelessness by providing housing, services, advocacy and education." Homefull was formerly called The Other Place.
Rev. Amy's Study Break
During the month of July, Amy will be on study break. She will be available for pastoral emergencies. Call Kristin to reach Amy.
Don't forget to collect a little water from whatever mountain stream or city fountain you visit this summer. We'll use it for our ingathering worship service on September 11. During that traditional water ceremony, we all pour water together into a communal bowl, symbolizing what we've learned over the summer and bring it back to share with our beloved community.
Senate Bill 5
Are you concerned about SB 5 and the impact this legislation could have on the voice of public employees? A repeal effort is underway, and if the effort is successful a referendum will be on the ballot in November. Have you had a chance to think about the issue or talk with others to help decide your position? We invite you to a discussion on Fri., June 17 at 7 p.m. at the Fellowship where we will summarize what's in the referendum and listen to your concerns. LIFT Greater Dayton has invited congregations to hold listening campaigns so LIFT can better decide whether or not to support the referendum to repeal the bill. Please come and share with us. The evening is sponsored by the MVUUF Community Organizing Action Group. Refreshments will be served.
