Have you been sick, lost a loved one, or had another significant milestone, or do you know of someone who has a need? The UU Care Committee would like to know how they can help. We send cards, provide a meal or two, and lend a friendly ear. Just let us know. (If you know of someone for whom you have a concern, with their permission let us know.) We can inform the minister if you wish. The information you provide remains confidential unless you want to share publicly. Contact us at care@uufws
Gardens and Grounds Committee announces two full-day fall workdays on September 13 and October 11 from 8:30 to 3:30. Come and work when you can. Our many gardens need cleaning and mulching. For September, I need folks with pickups to get leaf mulch from the City. Herman Schmid
Don't forget to send your pictures of water-y adventures for the slideshow this Sunday to email@example.com. It's all part of the annual Homecoming service this Sunday, Aug 24 at 11am. As we re-gather our community after our summer adventures (or quiet sojourns at home) we'll celebrate the annual water communion service, a symbolic in-gathering of the important life force we all bring to the Fellowship. Bring water from your travels or from your own back yard (it's OK to use water that represents where you went if you lost your vial to the TSA).

Let’s celebrate homecoming and welcome our new members in southern style with a “ Sunday Dinner at Grandma’s” themed potluck. Bring your favorite homemade Sunday dinner dishes to share. Think fried chicken, ham biscuits, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, hot vegetables, cold salads, casseroles, gelatin salads, deviled eggs—you get the idea, yum-yum! At Grandma’s Sunday dinner there is always enough to feed an army, so bring enough food to feed your family and guests, plus some extras for our new members. Dessert will be provided by the Membership Committee. Mark your calendar now so you don’t forget and be the only one to show empty handed—oh no!

"Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves" is one of our Six Sources for Unitarian Universalism. Yet many of us cringe in discomfort, or complain, or even feel disenfranchised if we encounter a reference to a Bible verse or story. What causes that discomfort? Is there a way to handle the discomfort other than simply avoiding references to the Bible?
