Weekly Update - July 16th, 2020
Safari Sunday: Smile Though Your Heart is Breaking
July 19th at 10:00 am
hosted by First Parish Northboro and led by Debra Zagaeski
We live in precious and precarious times. There are threats to our physical, emotional, moral/ethical and spiritual lives all around us. It is at exactly times such as this that we need to allow ourselves the relief that comes from a smile, a laugh, a touch of lightness. Join us as we explore laughter yoga as a restorative spiritual practice.

Congregational Food Drive
Please consider participating in a food drive to benefit the same program that we support through our meal packaging efforts from September to June. SMOC (South Middlesex Opportunity Council) provides lunches for homeless people in Worcester. At this time they are especially in need of:

  • 6-8 ounce juice boxes/pouches
  • fresh fruit especially apples, oranges/clementines, pears
  • 16 oz packages of bologna, thick slice pre-packaged

There will be a collection for these items on Tuesday, July 28 between 9:00 and 11:00 am and Wednesday, July 29 between 4:00 and 6:00 pm at UUCSW. Please reach out to Pauline at 508-648-6149 or psciarappa@gmail.com if there's a better time for you.
