From the Minister
Dear ones,

Our hearts are breaking about what is happening at our nation's borders, and the misuse of religious Scripture that teaches us to love our neighbors, not separate parents from children.

I will keep you posted, as we will be invited to show up for a vigil next Wednesday. Mark your calendars and get your carpools ready: On Wednesday, June 27 @ 6:00 p.m., Iona Hope Episcopal will host a Service of Prayer for Peace, Healing and Understanding at Iona-Hope ( 9650 Gladiolus Drive, Fort Myers, FL 33908 ). This informal time of prayer is a time for us to come together and offer prayers, chant or a brief message from our respective faith traditions in support of people who are being victimized and injured by our current state of affairs and to pray for our local, national and world leaders that they may bring the change needed to address injustice.

We know that prayers are not enough, yet it can feel good to know that we are in this together with other siblings of faith and conscience.

Rev. Allison Farnum

Religious Education News
It takes a village to raise a child. That's how the saying goes, and as a kid I remember being insulted by that expression. Why did it take a whole village to handle me?! But as I've grown, as I became a step-parent, then an educator, then a biological parent, then a religious education volunteer, then a religious education professional, I've realized that the "village" referred to isn't a network of adults who can manage or control the child. The village is a group of adults who work together to give the child a wildly varied set of experiences, wisdoms, traditions, examples, stories, ideas, risks, tests, goals, and love. It takes a village to flesh out a spirit; to give a young person the opportunity to find themselves in this noisy, chaotic world.

As I look back on our summer camp week, I am just amazed at the village which came together to make it happen. To give the campers, ages 5-13, a memorable and meaningful experience, people spent countless volunteer hours of preparation on such things as sewing cloaks (thank you,  Shellie Halstead !), decorating the church, formulating classes and activities, locating supplies for those activities, creating characters and costumes, and so much more. The week before camp was a bustle of activity which was brutal on the body - I know, I was there. I watched as  Krista Hutson Jersey Blosser Elly Hutson Barbara  and  Stephanie Fetter Moreland Stephanie & Lily Hoffman , and several others (including youth!) did their share setting up the elaborate scenes for our young wizards.

Then the camp itself, as always that week is beautiful chaos. Sometimes stressful, sometimes maddening, but always magical and worthwhile. Early mornings, busy days, surprises all over the place, excitement, injuries (mild ones), and wonder.  Theresa  Bahre came in as a house leader for Wave Rider - her the first camp ever, a sort of trial by fire which she handled like a champ.  Mathew Halstead  returned to be the master of the Wind Horse house, winning the House Cup, by the way.  Brianne Meyer  managed the Stone Dragon house and  Alison Carville  took over the Phoenix Fire house, both serving in those roles for the first time as well. House leading is no small task, spending at least an hour with the same group of kids each day working on a group identity and team spirit. And to those house leaders who also taught classes - y'all have no idea the energy required for that!
Our teachers, leading classes from wand making to "blowing stuff up," were amazing, as always.  Don Ehat , Gini Gottman,  Allison Farnum Janet McCrory DeMarco Joseph Sexton , and several others who came in for a day or two to lead classes which encouraged our campers to think differently, experiment, and have fun. Coming up with activities for kids ages 5-13 is a challenge in and of itself, and they all handled it deftly.

Those unfamiliar with camp would be floored by the amount of work our youth volunteers put into it. They serve as "ghosts," the wizarding versions of camp counselors. Without our ghosts, all the house leaders, teachers, the headmistress (Krista), and dean (myself) would never be able to make camp happen. The ghosts assist in classes, set up and tear down work stations, guide campers around the campus, help manage excited students, uphold safety standards, and facilitate all manner of administrative work. A big shoutout to two of our first time ghosts, Liam Jones,  Harley Hawkins , Brendan, and Madeline, who really gave it their all and had such great focus on their tasks. Our house ghosts, Jersey Blosser, Elly Hutson, Elise Sexton, and Abby Reed, were fabulously responsible and kept house meetings running smoothly. 

Then, after the incredible celebratory graduation feast on Friday (cooked by our amazing  Joy Purcell  with magical guest appearances from  Walter Peterson  and  Lesley Peterson ), a team of volunteers stayed behind to clean away all traces of the School of Wizardry and return the church to its muggle self.  J Andy Smith , Barbara and Stephanie Moreland, Stephanie Hoffman,  Marc Hawkins , and their respective kiddos all banded together to tidy and pack up the whole of camp. It was amazing to see, because we were all exhausted and worn down and aching and generally wiped out, but we were done packing up everything before 10:30p, by far the earliest we've ever finished. It was beautiful.

Our School of Wizardry summer camp was, once again, an astounding success, but not because of the effort of one person. It took a village to give these kids this magical, character building, challenging, delightful, and wondrously fun experience. What an honor to be part of this process, part of this small chapter in the raising of so many children. <3 To everyone who made it happen, THANK YOU.

UUs Dying to Make a Difference
You may have heard a fellow church member talk about the new UUA Collaborative Campaign called “Wake Now Our Vision” which challenges us to make a legacy gift to make a difference both now and in the future. Please read on to better understand how this is such a rare and profound opportunity for UUCFM today and for our future congregations.

I wanted to share my experience with this Campaign because, like me, you may be having a reaction to it that is based on a few misunderstandings, causing you and UUCFM to miss-out on a truly congregation-changing, community-changing opportunity for making a difference.

At first, I felt that this was all about leaving a chunk of money to the UUA; not that that is unimportant,but our priorities right now are a little closer to home. After talking with Jen Smith, our UUCFM Treasurer, she pointed out to me that (1) UUCFM gets a matching donation of 10% (up to $10,000) RIGHT NOW!, and (2) you don’t have to gift to the UUA for your legacy gift to qualify. (The matching donation actually comes from the UU Congregation at Shelter Rock.)

Many years ago, Jane and I had our legal counsel prepare our wills documenting our gift intentions for our beneficiaries. Since our joining the church, I had intended to provide for a legacy gift in our wills but had not done so yet. After understanding what the UUA Collaborative Campaign was offering and how UUCFM could benefit NOW by our doing so, we contacted our lawyers and asked them what it would cost to add this amendment to our trust declarations. It was clear that for a small legal expense, we could deliver a significant sum to the church now, as well as upon our deaths. This was a “no brainer.”

We filled out the “Wake Now Our Vision” form and mailed it in along with a copy of our new trustamendments. (We chose to gift only to UUCFM, and no other UUA institutions. You may choose otherwise.) Shortly, UUCFM will get its 10% matching donation from the Campaign. I encourage all members to consider participating in this Campaign (after checking with your legal advisor) at your earliest convenience before the Campaign is over. It’s a great way to make a personal difference in our community by amplifying our UU values through our current congregation as well as future congregations.

For more information, ask our Treasurer Jen Smith and see the WNOV website at

Book Study
Book study takes a break and is off Wednesdays June 27th and July 4th.

Come back and Join in reading Ram Dass'  Polishing the Mirror: How to Live from Your Spiritual Heart.  Wednesdays in the Library from 1pm until noon, beginning July 11th.

"Sometimes illumination occurs spontaneously or, as Ram Dass experienced, in a cosmic moment of the heart opening. More commonly, it happens when we remove the dust from the mirror of our spiritual heart with daily practice - to see beyond the illusion of our transient thoughts and emotions to the vast and luminous landscape of our true nature.
For five decades, Ram Dass has explored the depths of consciousness and love, and brought back insights as his service to others. With  Polishing the Mirror , he gathers together his essential teachings for being and loving, here and now, in the eternal present. For those just starting on the path, this is a primer for living from the spiritual heart. For those already practicing it, is a reference point for daily life in the spirit.
In this book, readers will discover perennial wisdom, humor, teaching stories, and guidance into Ram Dass's own spiritual practices, including:

  • Bhakti Yoga - devotion, opening our hearts to unconditional love
  • Practices for living, aging, dying, and embracing the natural flow of life
  • Karma Yoga - transformation through selfless service
  • Working with fear and suffering as a path to grace and freedom
  • Step-by-step guidance in devotional chant, meditation, mantra, and more

Polishing the Mirror  is Ram Dass' invitation to experience who we are and why we are here, and how to become beacons of unconditional love."

July 11 Introduction and Chapters 1&2
July 18th Chapters 3 & 4
July 25th Chapter 5 & 6
August 1 Chapter 7 & 8

For Book study beginning August 8th, we read  Play  by Stuart Brown and Christopher Vaughan.

"From a leading expert, a groundbreaking book on the science of play, and its essential role in fueling our happiness and intelligence throughout our lives 

We've all seen the happiness on the face of a child while playing in the school yard. Or the blissful abandon of a golden retriever racing across a lawn. This is the joy of play. By definition, play is purposeless, all-consuming, and fun. But as Dr. Stuart Brown illustrates, play is anything but trivial. It is a biological drive as integral to our health as sleep or nutrition. We are designed by nature to flourish through play. 

Dr. Brown has spent his career studying animal behavior and conducting more than six-thousand "play histories" of humans from all walks of life-from serial murderers to Nobel Prize winners. Backed by the latest research,  Play  (20,000 copies in print) explains why play is essential to our social skills, adaptability, intelligence, creativity, ability to problem solve and more. Particularly in tough times, we need to play more than ever, as it's the very means by which we prepare for the unexpected, search out new solutions, and remain optimistic. A fascinating blend of cutting-edge neuroscience, biology, psychology, social science, and inspiring human stories of the transformative power of play, this book proves why play just might be the most important work we can ever do.

Come having read Part One (first 47 pages)

Big things are happening! Our board of county commissioners, after our Nehemiah Action, 130 people attending a commission meeting, and over 1,000 postcard, emails and phone calls- has made a significant down-payment for the work which we have asked for. We asked the commission to form a children's service council and while they are still refusing to even allow it on the ballot- they have increased the budget for children's services by $1.7 million. Should this budget pass we will be able to celebrate dental care for thousands of more children as well as hundreds of children getting access to full day preschool. It is still not a victory but it is a sign that work for justice is never done in vain. 

If you would like to order a LIFE t-shirt you can do so at  https://www.customink.com/g/bxr0-00bf-84j3. If you're attending the July 5-day workshop in Orlando the shirt will arrive in time to wear it at the training. Shirts can be worn out and about and at community events.

South Fort Myers Food Pantry
 The response for food donations has been consistently good over the last year. The need is still there and UUCFM has been a strong supporter of the pantry. I have not been able to post the pantry newsletter but there is one at the Social Justice table listing the number of people fed by the pantry for the last year. Easter is early this year which means many people will be heading north earlier too. Consequently, many people will lose seasonal jobs and the need for food donations and volunteers will be just as great as it is now. Keep that in mind. Remember to bring at least one can each week and consider volunteering during the summer months.

There’s a village in rural Guatemala where women hand-sew reusable menstrual pads to sell. It’s a product that medical experts say is necessary in some impoverished areas because women and girls cannot afford disposable pads. They end up either overusing the few temporary pads they have, or sitting on rags at home, isolating themselves. Those practices lead to health issues, and young girls missing school. The women’s business out of San Lucas Toliman (toe-lee-mahn) is being funded by a Fort Myers nonprofit, and is staffed mostly by single mothers escaping violence. WGCU’s Jessica Meszaros reports, the women hope this startup will give them income and independence.​ Here is the link to the broadcast: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox/163f469e7a7bf6a7?projector=1&messagePartId=0.1

Side with Love
Earlier this week, national Latinx base-building movement organization, Mijente, issued an immediate call to action to #ShutdownSessions #AbolishICE and #FreeOurFuture.  View it here , read the transcript of it below and answer the call directly at:  bit.ly/actionready .

A lawless administration is separating families
White supremacy has been dividing us from our loved ones since the beginning of this country
Now we are watching as children are incarcerated in old Walmarts
Widening the circle by thousands of who will be punished for being a migrant, of color, poor
As Latinx Leaders who have been living and fighting on these borders for decades
Who are Pro-Black, Pro-Queer, Pro-Working class
Mijente is issuing the call for immediate direct action to:
  • Shut down Jeff Sessions
  • Abolish ICE
  • Resist a Fascist Future

Those fighting for Black Liberation are answering the call
Those leading work for LGBTQ liberation are answering the call
Electoral organizers are answering the call
Leaders of faith are answering the call

Will you answer the call?  bit.ly/actionready

As spiritual people we are visionary in our values. We refuse to play the game of who is worthy of humanity and who is not. We reject false solutions. We know that  our demands cannot be limited to the immediate . Mijente’s call addresses the root causes of the crisis - targeting of Black and Latinx communities, the expansion of the criminalization of migration and immigrant communities, greed of private prisons and detention facilities and the dehumanization of human beings that this nation is founded on. 

As spiritual people we discern. We see it as our role to build and grow faith and spiritual communities support to flank, resource, join and take leadership from Latinx-led organizations making visionary demands and providing immediate solutions to reduce harm and state-sanctioned violence. Mijente is doing just that. 

As spiritual people we are more than the seductions of our society. We recognize that the current state requires us to collectively embody more courage, more relationships and more risk-taking. We are called to give direct action, money, comfort, days, weeks, and years to the work of love and justice. 

We understand the current realities of white supremacy as part of a long legacy of state violence that has separated families, sought to break ties and kinship networks and dehumanized Black and People of Color communities. And at every step, such efforts have been met with organized, strategic and sustained resistance. Today is no different. 
We answer the call.
