Our Fellowship has embraced the role of Teaching Congregation by hiring a half-time intern who will serve our congregation from August through May for the next two years. Mariela Pérez-Simons, Meadville-Lombard Theological School's Presidential Scholar, is familiar to many of us already through her work with UUFWS, but this is her first official Sunday as our intern. In her sermon she will explore issues of identity (how her Cuban roots shape her), the arc of personal development (how she is being formed by Theological Education), and a vision for the future (what ministry might be like in the future, and how our Fellowship will help shape it). To help us get to know Mariela and her family the Religious Education Team is hosting an ice cream social after the service -- please plan to stay!

Each year our Fellowship community reconstitutes our spiritual community in the annual, end-of-summer water communion service. Bring water from your summer travels or your stay-cation, from the heights of the Himalayas to your backyard bird bath to share in the common bowl. (Water does not have to be potable; some l’eau de tappe will be available to symbolize your H2O, in case you’re not able to bring water from your travels.) Woodwind quartet Elektra Winds provides special music for this special service. We celebrate and sustain our re-gathered community with a grand potluck after this service: Bring your best! Please email photos of water sources and names of the place from which your water hails to revlisa@uufws.org by Thursday, August 23rd for inclusion in the slide show.
