Thanksgiving: Let’s Tell a Truer Story
by Rev. Kathryn Hawbaker
of the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Marietta
Sunday 11am EDT by Zoom 

This Sunday we will join the First UU Society of Marietta and its congregation on Zoom for Rev. Kathryn Hawbaker’s service, “Thanksgiving: Let’s Tell a Truer Story.”  She writes, “A sense of place and belonging is a vital part of our identity. Can we clearly look at our cultural traditions? Let’s listen and learn, and choose a better understanding.”

THURSDAY NOV. 19th 7pm
Our Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Athens and the Athens Friends Meeting have joined together to co-sponsor a public presentation by the Southeast Ohio Natural Burial Working Group (Cheryl Cesta, StarMary Castro, Natalie Wilson, and Wenda Sheard). This public Zoom presentation titled “Introduction to Natural Burial” will be on Thursday Nov. 19 at 7:00pm. Here’s the description and Zoom information from the Southeast Ohio Natural Burial Working Group’s Facebook Page:

Come learn the history, legality, as well as the emotional, financial, environmental benefits of natural burial. Also, learn about efforts underway in Athens County to connect with township trustees, local cemeteries, funeral directors, death care, and home funeral consultants to revive the practice of natural, old-fashioned burials remembered by some grandparents and great-grandparents alive today. Questions most welcome. We hope to see you on November 19th.

Saturday, Nov 21, 10 am to 1:30 pm (with lunch break)It looks increasingly certain that Joe Biden will be our next president. But no matter who wins, we need to move forward with important justice work in Ohio. We need to plan for the future. We need to move forward with learning to hear one another again across our divisions. We need to move forward with our work to end racial injustice.  We need to move forward in living our UU principles in the world. Please join us as we discuss the future and how we work together through UUJO.

Sliding scale donation is requested. If you would like the Fellowship to support your participation, please contact Susan W. at or 240-305-0860.
