New Adult RE Workshop for Exploring Your Religious Journey

Join Rev. Claudia and UUCA’s Affiliated Community Minister Rev. Tiffany Sapp for a weekend adult faith development workshop, March 6, 6-8 PM in 23 Edwin and March 7, 9am-3pm in the RE Commons. The two Revs will be leading a remake of a beloved UU course called Haunting Church.  Together, we will explore our religious journeys in a way that promotes greater self-understanding and personal peace. What do you leave behind? What do you bring to the present? What do you redefine? Registration is required. Please contact Rev. Claudia if you are interested.  Contact Kim Collins if you need childcare.

Justice Ministry Update

#UU the Vote is catching on! We have 50 commitments to act beyond voting to #UU the Vote. Our goal is at least 100 commitments. All of the issues we care about are affected by who our elected officials are. Check out the #UU the Vote bulletin board in Sandburg Hall if you haven’t filled out a commitment slip and for ways to get involved. You can also fill out a commitment slip online at https://forms.gle/nMcNwJmCiTdycjmq5 Resources are updated weekly by  Melissa Murphy at  bit.ly/UUtheVote. Thank you, Melissa!  And, don’t forget to put a heart on your commitment slip once you have completed your activity. That is a way of holding ourselves accountable as we put our faith in action: #VoteLove, #Defeathate. Our involvement in getting out the vote and articulating our values can make a difference!

The Justice Ministry Council invites you to consider participating in getting “Souls to the Polls” on Sunday, February 23. Why? Because NC could lose Sunday voting in any given year. It was reduced to one Sunday from two this year. To keep it for those who can only vote on Sundays, we can help show that it is needed. Faith communities like ours can organize group voting on the Sunday of early voting to keep the numbers up, demonstrating to our government leaders that Sunday voting is used. Polls are open from 10AM-6PM that day. I intend to vote the 23rd. I hope you join me if you can. Of course, that means I am doing all I can to familiarize myself with the candidates so I can be ready! Wish me luck. Questions? Comments? Contact me at faithdev@uuasheville.org.
