Sunday, May 30th, 11:00 AM
"In the Eye of the Beholder"
Rev. Lisa Wiggins with Carole Rosvold, Worship Associate

Beauty is an illusive concept, fraught with a wide diversity of understanding and appreciation.  However, it is a common spiritual yearning throughout human culture.  We will explore the search for the aesthetic in our daily lives and its value of being a window to the interconnected universe.

Contemplative Service

May 30th, 9:00 AM Service

Our Lay led Contemplative Service is from 9:00-9:50 am on Sundays (not available in summer), Readings introduce a silent period to reflect on a topic or idea, followed by an opportunity to share individual thoughts.

New Member Biography
Rev. Lisa A. Wiggins

Lisa's life is a combination of UU ministry, international development, management expertise, a love for the out-of-doors (bird watching, kayaking, abalone picking, gardening and stargazing) and photography.  She relishes her partnership with Rev. Chip and with him they share four sons, eight grandchildren and two poodles.  Although Lisa has traveled the world around, California is her chosen home.  She also finds it a special treat to live now within an hour of her twin sister.

Hear Rev. Lisa Wiggins this Sunday at the 11am service!
Sunday Service Time Survey

This is the same announcement sent out in the UUCM Special Announcement last Sunday. If you have already filled out your survey, thank you. If you have not, please take this opportunity to do so now. It is a very short survey. We would like to hear from as many people as possible whether you are a member or attendee of UUCM. Your opinion is important to the future of UUCM.

The Committee on Ministry has proposed changing the Sunday service times and we need feedback from the congregation. This survey will remain open until June 13. If you have any questions please contact COM chair Tim.

Click on this link to take the survey or copy it into your browser: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PXRPG75

There will also be a link from our web site uumarin.org on the About Services page of the Sunday Services menu.

A-G salad,
H-M main dish,

Bon Appetit!  Mary Bicknell
 A Message from the UUCM Administrator

janetteIf you would like help getting Electronic Funds Transfers (EFT) set up online, I will be available on Sunday, June 6 from 9-10:45 AM and again from 12:30-1:30 PM.  You don't need to make an appointment.  Please feel welcome to drop in on a first come, first served basis.  To set up your EFT, you will need your check book so we can input your bank account information.  I can also give you any information you may need on your current pledge balance, questions about contributions, etc.
Also please note: The administrator will be on vacation this summer June 10-18 and July 20-23.

Remarkable People

This month's Remarkable People will be the last hurrah for Carole Rosvold and Carolyn Bopp (who are retiring).  Carolyn will be new on the Board of Directors and Carole will be on the Committee on Ministry.  For the June 11th meeting (second Friday of the Month) we'll have Bill Pryor and Doug Kerr.  They are long time UU's and have very interesting life stories.  We'll have something to sip and snack during 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 group!

Jim Scott
in concert at UUCM
sponsored by our UU AcoUUstic Café!

MC and opening for Jim:
 Rev. Chip Wright  

Don't miss this!  Jim Scott is a wonderful songwriter and musician who was a guitarist for the Paul Winters Consort during its most prolific time, the 1980's.  His songs and arrangements have become anthems of that time and our mother earth!  He has continued to write, sing and play.  Among his songs are "Gather the Spirit" and several others in our UU hymnal.  Jim is also one of the creators of our own UUA Green Sanctuary program and a constant voice for the planet and the environment.   

The suggested donation is $15 at the door.  Wine and beer will be sold by the glass.  Corking fee:  $15.  All the regular AcoUUstic Café's goodies to munch on will be available for a nominal price.  Jim will have CDs of his music for sale as well.  

So tell your friends, spread the word. 
Come early to get a good seat. 

Doors open at 6:30 PM.  
Thank you to all who made the Dream BIG
(and often) auction possible.

To our amazing auction committee chair, Phil Smith and all the committee members -
Lori, Joyce, and Blair (donations), Lisa W. and  Lisa C. (publicity),  Marge H. and Marje P. (event set up).

And to Dick (our fabulous auctioneer) and Linda H. (assistant to Dick), and our bartenders Phil H., Carolyn, Eileen and Sean.
Also to the numerous people who made and sought after donations, brought in refreshments, took  down tables, cleaned up afterwords and helped in other ways.  And thanks to Rev. Chip who got everyone enthused with his stories about the auction.

And most of all to those who bid and won the items, thus contributing $7,500 to UUCM's income.
This was truly a community affair.

Any comments or suggestions about the auction email Phil Smith

Do you love nibbling on those tasty treats and sipping coffee or tea on Sunday mornings?  We need (a) new Refreshment Coordinator(s)  for church year Sept. 2010 to June 2011 in order to continue this tradition!!! Job entails reminding members of upcoming dates for them to provide refreshments, make coffee and clean up kitchen afterwords.
