Second Sunday Collection – May 8 PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 27 April 2016 00:00

Our Second Sunday plate collection in May will benefit the Mamou High School Band. Mamou High is a high-poverty, racially balanced school located in the World Famous Cajun Creole Zydeco musical capital of Louisiana, under the direction of UU Minister Emerita, the Rev. Dr. Marie E. deYoung. “When we perform for our town, our students feel valued and respected for their efforts. But, they also learn the importance of ‘giving back’ to our town by playing for important social functions.”

This year, Marie advises that the school is really strapped for cash. Sales taxes are down and many off-shore oil productions were laid off. She thinks that two symbolic gifts would be most helpful this year: A classy dark green and white mace for the student drum major and a special outfit for the drum major to include: a forest green cowboy hat, a white shirt for warm weather, and a snazzy white warm up suit for cold weather.

May 8, The Tangled Blessing of Motherhood. As we look at our blessings, considered in the context of Mother’s Day, it seems fitting to explore together the tempestuous nature of parenting. Please join the CCUU family for Rev. Jim’s Mother’s Day message.

May 15, Paying It Forward. Your minister and the Green Sanctuary team present a message that ties the UU principles and purposes to our conception of Earthcentered benefits that will redound to the common good. This will also be a New Member Sunday. Please visit with Rev. Jim if you would like to become a member.

May 22, We welcome the Reverend Darcy Roake, who will bless us with her words of ministry.

May 29, Flowering. Please bring your flowers for our annual flower communion. We will celebrate together the final service with Sky Stewart, our ministerial intern for the last three years. Rev. Jim’s message will address the process of your, my, and humanity’s flowering—a process that is greatly valued by Unitarian Universalists.
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.
