Plan now to join other magnificent UU women for a retreat on Living a Life of Joy. The retreat will be held October 16 – 18 at beautiful Laurel Ridge Conference Center (about 1 hour from the Fellowship). Among the activities, Mariela Perez-Simons, a Cuban-born writer and speaker from Greensboro will facilitate sessions using a form of expressive art called Sacred Play. Also featured is our own Dr. gloria wright who will conduct an interactive workshop on Creating and Maintaining a Joyful Life. Time is also provided to savor the magnificent fall surroundings. Put a hold on your calendar now and watch for sign-up information in mid-August and September. For additional information contact Kathy Orms.
Let's welcome our members back from a great summer and celebrate our new members with a “Sunday Supper” Potluck. Bring your favorite homemade (or bought) Sunday dinner dishes to share. Think Sunday dinner at Grandma’s – chicken, veggies, potatoes, casseroles, beans, pasta, etc. Bring enough to share with your family and visitors who may drop in."Welcome" cakes will be supplied by the Membership Committee for dessert. And, there will be special music by Elektra Winds, making their debut peformance and the Triad's newest chamber ensemble. Also, remember to wear your yellow Standing on the Side of Love tee shirts. And remember to bring your water for the water service. It's going to be a busy Sunday. Don't miss it!
I'm doing a Question Box sermon on August 9th in which I’ll take questions from anyone in attendance, about anything you want to ask. I welcome your queries about matters large and small: issues of social significance, personal curiosity, or theological dilemma. I’ve done a variation on this theme before, but I previously asked for questions in advance so that I could carefully prepare my remarks. This new method of taking questions on the spot feels a little bit like doing a trapeze act with no net, but I'm confident that after three years in ministry together we trust each other enough to try this out. Bring your curiosity, and be ready for some surprises!
