GROW SPIRITUALLY
Faith and Film: War, Loss and the Gold Star Children Join Rev. Tim on Thursday, July 19 [Morning Session (10 am - noon) or Thursday Evening Session: (7 pm - 9 pm)] to watch and discuss Gold Star Children, a documentary film about child survivors of war casualties, written and directed by Mitty Griffis Mirrer, a gold star child herself. The film is a first-person narrative told through the eyes of a nine-year-old girl, who lost her father in the Iraq war, and the adult-children survivors of the Vietnam War. We'll then discuss the intertwined realities we all face-love, loss, and grief-that are complicated by issues of war and the American culture of violence. Registration is required. Childcare is available. Call or email Katie Hymans at (559) 322-6146 or khymans@uufresno.org
 
UU Humanists. "Pacifism for Peace and Justice, a History". Conscientious objection. Antiwar demonstrations. Outlawing war with international treaties. Non-violent direct action for justice. How do these interrelate? All are welcome on July 15 in the Youth Room. Noon potluck, come with or without food. 12:30 discussion with Devin Carroll. Contact Devin, devinc@sbcglobal.net, 559-240-5127.

MESSAGES TO CONGREGATION
Betsy Temple was recently in a car accident and suffered many injuries which have deemed skilled nursing as a necessity. She has received and is grateful for an outpouring of love and support. However, this is going to be a healing journey. She would greatly appreciate cards of support and visits if pre-arranged. Her mailing address is currently: Horizon Health Care c/o Betsy Temple, 3034 Herndon Ave, Fresno, CA 93720 and Betsy's phone number is (559) 321-0883.
 
We have a new printer/copier in the office work room. If you have church related documents to print, you may want to contact the office to insure one of the staff members are available to assist since the functions are different than our previous machine. Please remember to fill out the usage chart on the wall for appropriate billing of printing costs.
 
All contributions made to UUCF should be clearly noted what they are intended for. If an unmarked contribution is received and there is a pledge-of-record, the amount will be applied to the pledge. Any contributions made without proper identification will be listed as a "non-pledge" contribution. Unless otherwise indicated, the date of the pledge contribution will indicate the pledge year contribution is applied to.

You don't have to be a millionaire to make a difference in the world. A charitable gift in your will or trust is always appreciated. You can designate a dollar amount or a percentage. And you can change your mind, if you need to.
