Dear UU Parents and Guardians,
All Ages Community Activity
Stop by the church and take a photo!
We are using #UnitarianChurchLincolnathome when posting to social media or send an email to me with your photos :)
An excuse to visit the church - outdoors - safely.
The posters are located around the back of the church near the playground
Please be aware that Bluestem Montessori might be out playing if you stop by M-F before 5pm.
Our theme for the next "Sunday School in a Bag" will be our 2nd principle, and based upon the notion of kindness. Feel free to get a jump start with this theme by taking a photo with this cool poster.
In an effort for us to remember seeing faces, and to get to know one another better, I am going to spotlight one family each month in our church newsletter. (SO easy. PLEASE sign up. I promise it will not take much time at all.)
So far we only have 4 families signed up!!! Plenty of spots left.
Sign up HERE to participate

On Being episode, "Listening In the Cracks"
I just started the first lesson for Beloved Conversations. The following poems were offered as a part of this lesson.
(Content Note: these poems contain images that contrast the violence, pain, and impact of white supremacy culture, patriarchy and capitalism with a world that could be and is not yet. Please practice self-care as you engage these texts.)
