Don't forget to send your pictures of water-y adventures for the slideshow this Sunday to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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).
There will be a Women"s Chocolate Party on Saturday, September 27 at 6:30 PM at Lucy Kaplan's house 660 Chester Road, Winston-Salem. All women are invited so bring your women friends and relatives. Young women are invited if mature. I supply the chocolate, you supply food to dip in the chocolate or beverages of your choice. I look forward to seeing you.

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?
