The 7 UU Principles in Arts & Crafts

Come join us outdoors this Sunday, September 18th, 11am, outside the fellowship’s lower level for some creative socializing.

During our appreciative inquiry process a few years ago, we learned that people much appreciated the times we spend socializing with a purpose.

This Sunday, we’ll be bringing tables and arts and crafts supplies from our huge collection on the lower level outside, then we’ll look at our seven UU principles and think for each of us, which principle means the most in this moment.

Then, we’ll each create something to tell the story of our beliefs, our hopes, and/or our challenges relating to our chosen principle. At then end, we’ll invite all to share their creations and thoughts. Music most welcome. Led by Alyssa & Wenda.

MASK NOTES: Our board is still requiring KN95 or N95 masks (NO FABRIC MASKS, and no surgical masks, either) of folks entering the building to use the restroom when we have outdoor events. No masks are required outdoors.

In keeping with the 5th UUA principle, the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and society at large:
We need the ideas of UUFA Members and friends as we try to develop the fellowship’s strategic plan. We have goals, (see below). Now we need action items and time lines for those items.

1, UUFA will increase the use of the building by the community in concordance with UUA’s seven principles.  Efforts to increase building use should include… to be completed by… (date)

2. UUFA will grow the congregation in strength and community. Efforts to increase congregational size and strength should include…..  to be completed by… (date)

3.  UUFA will continue to improve its Sunday offerings. Efforts to improve Sunday offerings should include….  to be completed by… (date)

I have scheduled three Zoom meetings during which I hope to hear your ideas. You are welcome to attend one or more meetings.  The meeting agendas will be the same… review the goals, and create action items and a timeline to accomplish those items. Meeting times are below.
Hope to see you on the Zoom screen and to hear your thoughts on the fellowship’s future.
