April 21, 10:30 am: 'The Earth Forever Turning'
Rev. Chip Wright with Worship Associate Sue Fleckles
As our globe warms and the seas rise there are countless other changes that come along with this evolving experience. A changing view of our earth is necessary and even required as many hopes we may have for tomorrow become more poignant.
Our Lay led Contemplative Service is from 9:00-10:00 am on Sundays in the Fireside Room.
The Contemplative Service is a small circle gathering that includes short readings and time for discussion and sharing of joys and concerns.
All are welcome to join us.

Coming of Age Service, Potluck, and Budget Hearing
Save the date and please plan on attending and celebrating the transition of our youth into maturity with UU identity and self defined spirituality. Ten of your precious children will be sharing their story and credo. Potluck lunch to follow.
Dovetailed with the potluck is a discussion on the UUCM budget, known as the Budget Hearing, where we get clear answers to any questions we may have about the 2013-2014 budget. Included in this will also be some fundraising planning, brainstorming and calendaring.(annual meeting May 19)
The obvious connection between these events is the support of our children, our families, our congregation, and our dreams as Unitarian Universalists. We are creating our own future. Come Celebrate!
Childcare available with RSVP by May 9th to dre@UUMarin.org.

Social Justice Education/Action Activities

Because the Winter shelter is closed until mid-November, there will be even more pressing need (if that's possible) at the Mill St. Shelter and for the Street Chaplain's Tuesday night dinners.
Please keep an eye out here for details as needs arise.
Homeward Bound of Marin is the primary provider of shelter and services for homeless families and individuals. They seek volunteers to represent the program at Marin Farmers Markets.
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. firstname.lastname@example.org 453-6221
