Reverend Chip Wright
This will be my last note for the newsletter for this church
year. It seems like it was only a few
weeks ago that I arrived but it has been 11 months! We have only a couple Sundays left, then I
will head off with my partner Rev. Lisa to represent our congregation at the
UUA's General Assembly in Minneapolis. After that and our UUCM BBQ on July 3rd
at our Petaluma home, I will take study, reflection and rejuvenation time
before returning back to the pulpit to start our second year together at our
opening Sunday service on September 12th.
It has been a good year full and positive in so many ways it
is hard to list them all. But each and
all add up to being an auspicious beginning of a long and exciting journey
together here at the UUCM. We have
created a strong foundation. I look
forward to our ongoing life together here and all the promise it will bring.
There is so much to do, so much to know, so much to care about. When we do it together we can make a world
that sings and a home for all who travel the paths to justice and love together
in care and support!
Have a wonderful summer and I will see you all in the

break. It starts at 7:30 pm and ends at 9:00 pm. Please be on time
because we have been running over time the past few months. Marge
Hollinger will be hosting next year with another (at this time) mystery
host. We have enjoyed spending second Fridays with you, and have
learned a lot about our membership. We are a talented
