"Beloved Community, and an 8th Principle
for Unitarian Universalists"
The Rev. Suzelle Lynch

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's Beloved Community, was a vision of a society based on justice, equity, and love of one's fellow human beings. What will it take to build it? Are we willing to do what it takes?

Photo of the Week
Former UUCW high school group member Caity Guszkowski visited 1/11/20 for the memorial service of Nancy Tabor, who was her mentor and friend. Cait was surprised and glad to see that the hand-drawn Namaste poster she made 15 years ago is still hanging on the wall in the Youth Room! Caity was here with her husband Chris Gonzales; they are food entrepreneurs in Nashville, TN.

" The Divided Self: Finding Peace in a Fractious Mind "
Pulpit Guest: Philip Chard
Worship Leader: Eddee Daniel

The self is characterized by multiple “personas” that sometimes harbor competing agendas, attitudes and opinions. We will examine the origins and workings of the divided self, how to negotiate a psychological truce, and paths toward reconciliation, healing and, eventually, inner peace.

Beautiful Music today from the UUCW Adult Choir and Ruben Piirainen, Music Director.
