HEALING & DECRIMINALIZATION
Come join our Service on Sunday, February 5th, 11am in person (face masks encouraged) or by Zoom. We’re in the fourth Sunday of the UUA’s 30 Days of Love, an annual celebration that runs from Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in January through Valentine’s Day in February. It is an opportunity to collectively nurture our spirits, deepen our understanding, and take action on our values for collective liberation.
For this week of Side With Love’s “30 Days of Love” campaign leading up to Valentines Day, let’s talk about crime. No, really! As UUs dedicated to justice and community, how does the contemporary US carceral system violate our values? Can we change the ways we look at crime and the people who commit crime? It’s time to examine our assumptions about these issues. Service leader: Susan Westenbarger, she/her
Please join us.
NEW FACE MASK NOTES: As of January 14, 2022, the UUFA board moved from a mandatory face mask policy for Sunday Services to a “face masks encouraged” policy. Thank you to all who continue to wear face masks to protect the most vulnerable among us. We provide Zoom access for those unable to attend in person.

WHERE TO FIND OUR NEWS
1. We create our Greensheet newsletter on WordPress, and it then ALWAYS automagically appears on our website, under the Greensheet tab, here: http://uuathensoh.org/home/the-greensheet/
2. If you have a Facebook account—even one you never use—you can see our Facebook events and send us messages via our Facebook account at https://www.facebook.com/uuathensoh
3. Currently, we email the Greensheet to those with emails in our Elvanto church software. Not everyone who signed up on WordPress is on our Elvanto list. We’re looking for a volunteer to make sure those two lists match. If you want to be on our Elvanto list, email firstname.lastname@example.org
