What's Happening This Week
Enriching Connections has become an even more vital part of all that we do. We want to make it as easy for you to stay connected as possible. So we encourage you to add something to your morning routine. As you sip your coffee or tea, go to this link:  http://www.liveoakuu.org/whats-happening-this-week/
It will have the most up-to-date information about connection events. Be sure and save the link! We want to enrich connections, but we are also putting safeguards in place so that we can feel safer when we gather in this way. (But if you have a friend who might want to join, feel free to privately send them the link.)

Food Distribution During the Time of Covid-19
Hill Country Community Ministry (HCCM) and Live Oak UU Church were determined to make fresh food available to our neighbors in need. We can take pride in the success of Friday's food distribution. Read how we did it.


Labyrinth Tenders
Thank You, Labyrinth Tenders: The path is clear before us, thanks to the Labyrinth Tenders who weeded the labyrinth path during the Labyrinth Workday on March 14. Thank you to Mike, Becky, Ray and Chris. Linda created a "Happy Birthday, Labyrinth" display in the labyrinth kiosk.

Labyrinth Walking During the Spring
The labyrinth is a good place to go for a walk on your own, to enjoy the springtime, and to spend some quiet and peaceful time outside. With its wide paths and large center, you can easily keep a safe distance should there be another walker on the path. If you have never walked the labyrinth, you only need to take one step at a time, following the single path to the center. Spend as long as you want in the center. The same path leads you back out again. May you journey in peace and find what you seek along the path.
