Sunday Worship Service chalice

March 10, 10:30 am: About Time and the No-Time Zone
Joan Nelson and Worship Associate Sue Fleckles

The semi-annual "nuisance" of resetting the clock is a metaphysical ritual.

Theoretical physicists (Einstein included) say there is no such thing as time. Mystics and poets urge us to connect with the "eternal now."  Perhaps there is a better way to find, make, spend, buy, save, pass and otherwise organize our particular slice of it here in the pivotal early 21st century.

UUCM Book Group
book pileOur UUCM Book Group will meet on Wednesday, March 20, at 7:30 PM  in the Clara Barton Room.  Sher Sheldon will lead us in a discussion of Zaitoun by David Eggers.

"Through the story of one man's experience after Hurricane Katrina, Eggers draws an indelible picture of Bush-era crisis management.  Abdulrahman Zeitoun, a successful Syrian-born painting contractor, decides to stay in New Orleans and protect his property while his family flees. After the levees break, he uses a small canoe to rescue people, before being arrested by an armed squad and swept powerlessly into a vortex of bureaucratic brutality. When a guard accuses him of being a member of Al Qaeda, he sees that race and culture may explain his predicament."  (New Yorker)  

All members and visitors are welcome to join in our discussions..  Contact: Nani Ranken, 898-8558.

The program will be held in Boston, Mass.,
June 30-July 21, 2013 and will include interactive social justice education and real-world internships, grounded in Unitarian Universalist values and practices.

Apply today through our online application.  We are accepting applications now through April 15.  See more.
Social Justice Education/Action Activities
Members and guests are invited to take advantage of the Sunday Social Justice "Table" to promote a favorite cause or project. Perhaps you want to circulate a handout or a written petition (or refer people to electronic online petitions.) Arrangements must be submitted for committee approval in advance. figleafjoan@comcast.net - 453-6221
The homeless ladies seem to crave hugs. They light up at the mention of hand reflexology, foot rubs, manicures and hair stylings.
If you're interested in doing this kind of hands-on outreach, contact figleafjoan@comcast.net - 453-6221.
Please remember to buy white socks and nonperishable food items for our homeless friends. Just leave them in the foyer.  And rest assured that they will be appreciated.
Shelter volunteers this week were Kristen, Linda and Valerie.    

I appreciate any feedback on this weekly.   groupemail@uumarin.org
