2021 Jul 18 | Summer #4
Upcoming Online Worship
Sun Jul 18, 10:00am ~ “Unlocking the Power of Covenant
~ Rev. Meredith Garmon

We Unitarian Universalists are bound together by covenant -- and not, as many faith traditions are, by a shared creed or canon. In these difficult times we struggle to face the legacy of white supremacy (within us and around us), environmental collapse, and vast economic inequity. A renewed embrace of our practice of covenant may offer the best path forward.
Sun Jul 25, 10:00am ~ “Habits”
~ Rev. Meredith Garmon

Habits. We've all got 'em. Some are good. Some, not so much. Will power isn't enough to change a deep habit. What might be?
This Sunday's worship will be held in our Summer Worship Zoom

The RE Council is busy planning fall RE activities. Read about upcoming plans for RE HERE. Your input is important! Continuing and new RE volunteers, please let us know your availability, interests, and comfort level with various activities by completing this RE Volunteer survey. Families, please submit new RE registration using this online registration form so we know how to organize classes. And everyone reply to the CUUC Reopening Survey, which has specific questions for families. We look forward to hearing from you!
I take the bulk of my vacation in July. While I'm away, please contact RE Council Co-Chairs, Christine H (christineharan@yahoo.com) and Laura G (lkgoodspeed@gmail.com); Administrator Pam P (admin@cucwp.org); or Rev. Meredith (minister@cucwp.org).
Congregation & Community News
From the Reopening Committee

As we contemplate reopening our building, we ask everyone to think of our community as a whole - from the youngest to the oldest, the healthy to the vulnerable, the vaccinated to the un-vaccinated - and consider what you think would be the safest way for CUUC to reopen this fall. Take our Reopening Survey to give us your input. If you'd like a paper copy mailed to you, contact the office (admin@cucwp.org, 914-462-1260). Survey open until Tue Jul 27.
Worship in Coffee Hour Zoom

When we were meeting in person, our summer services were closer, more intimate gatherings. This week we will be doing something similar for our virtual worship. Instead of logging in to our worship webinar, everyone will gather in our coffee hour Zoom room, so we can see one another. Our microphones will continue to be muted during the service, like before, and we will still use the chat to communicate. Click here to login to worship.
From Environmental Practices Group
Although it may seem impossible to eliminate plastic in your everyday life, there is almost always an alternative. Here are some excellent ideas. Choosing non-plastic options is also a way to encourage manufacturers to devise more environment-friendly packaging. A great idea not in the list, suggested by our eco-enthusiast and office administrator: use powdered laundry detergent (and dishwasher detergent), sold in cardboard packaging. Another CUUCer also suggested the new laundry sheets, offered by companies like earthwash, earth breeze, or tru earth
Caring & Sharing
