August Services at CCUU PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 28 July 2016 00:00
August 7, Our GNOUU Hot Art in a Cool Space service will be at the North Shore UU Society, 28662 Krentel Road, Lacombe, LA at 11am. The title of our service will be A Beautiful Path. We will not only enjoy the beauty of the artwork we will also consider the importance of the labyrinth in our spiritual practice. Rev. Paul, Rev. Deanna, and Rev. Jim will lead our service.

August 14, Dancing with the “Rocks” in Our Lives. Sometimes in our lives we don’t understand why something is there. However, there is within us an innate sense of the infinite that we’re always connected with. The Rev. Monya Scherzer will remind us that this innate sense can guide us into a deeper kind of knowing, into the mystery, into the stillness, into the language wherein God speaks to every one of us.

August 21, In Times Like These. “To everything there is a season,” says Ecclesiastes. Rev. Jim will return to the CCUU pulpit with a message on the value of shaping our life, in these troubled times, by expanding the right of conscience and using the democratic process.

August 28, Ralph Waldo Emerson: On Nature, On Ministry, On Transcendentalism. Your minister will share his thoughts on the essays from Ralph Waldo Emerson that he read during his summer vacation. A copy of The Transcendentalist will be made available to you several weeks before this service.

Second Sunday Collection – August 14

 

Our Second Sunday plate collection in August will benefit 350 Louisiana, a volunteer climate activist group connecting our region to the international climate change movement led by 350.org. The group evolved out of 350 NOLA (founded in April of 2013).

They exist because “climate change poses unprecedented threats to human civilization, and coastal Louisiana is especially vulnerable.” Rising seas, hotter temperatures, and stronger, more frequent storms don’t bode well for the futures of our coasts, communities, or cultures.

Any money that 350LA receives goes toward promoting civic engagement and advocacy around climate change.  Public actions, such as rallies, involve permitting and security fees.  There are costs associated with transporting community members to events of interest, such as Entergy 's public hearing on their energy distribution plan, or transporting members to canvass in various communities when we wish to promote turnout or action around a particular issue (such as their presence at the Superdome on the day of an oil leasing auction).  Event promotion always has costs, such as producing fliers for events and sponsoring social media action alerts for upcoming public meetings or congressional votes of interest.

They ultimately hope to be able to support a part-time paid position to help manage their workload and improve community networks (since they are all volunteers, they need someone paid to represent them at City Council, community-based organization meetings, etc.)

Economic Inequality PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 04 November 2015 13:31
Economic inequality…income inequality…wealth inequality.  It’s a popular topic right now, with newspaper columns and blogs considering it and the UUA adopting it as a study issue.  Is it really a problem?  If so, what does the problem look like?  What’s causing it?  What can be done about it?

 

Your economic inequality ministry – Shirley Peak, Bruce Blenkarn, Suzy Mague – have been studying the materials available and will lead study sessions for CCUU members and friends; members and friends of the other GNOUU churches; and members of the general public who want to join us.  We have scheduled two sessions:  Monday night, November 30, 7 p.m.; Monday night, January 11, 7 p.m., both at the church. A third session is anticipated during March. At our first session we will consider current economic conditions, focusing on a list of questions.  Two examples:  How does the pay of the average CEO compare to the pay of the average worker in the same firm?  Did the income of the average American increase or decrease, adjusted for inflation, between 2009 and 2012?  Having reviewed the information, we anticipate a thoughtful discussion of whether this situation is a problem, and if so, why?

We invite you to join us to explore this important topic.  Please talk with any one of us if you have questions.
