Our Theme for June is Joy

June 4, Joy! Joy! Joy! chart Euro Swiss Franc Feeling the Presence of Joy! If joy is to dwell within us, if it has or if it will, we can only feel its power in us if we turn our attention to its presence. In a service led by Rev. Jim, we pause together to step into a realm of joy and joyfulness.

June 11, On the Power of Living through a Transition. Rev. Jim shares a long view of the life of Community Church. Please join his perspective on the stepping stones of life, and the effort to negotiate our way forward as we step from one stone to another.

June 18, What is Fathering? Our pulpit guest is Edie Love, a candidate for UU ministry from Memphis, TN. She will explore what it means to be a father in today's world. From heterosexual nuclear families, to single fathers, to men who adopt and mentor young people, we will hear several different stories that all relate to being fatherly and see what ties them all together.

June 25, You are invited to attend GA worship EURCHF at the New Orleans Convention Center, beginning at 9:30am. No services will be held at CCUU on June 25.

Second Sunday Social Justice Collection June 11 PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 24 May 2017 12:53

Our Second Sunday collection in June will benefit Voice of the Experienced.  VOTE began in 1987 as an effort of the Angola Special Civics Project, a group of prisoners at the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola. Their initial focus was on jail-based voter registration. They were surprised to learn that detainees not on probation, parole, or serving time on a felony conviction were legally allowed to vote.  The group began to lobby their legislators and encourage their family and friends to vote. In 2003, several members of the project were released and established Voice of the Ex-Offender (VOTE) as a 501(c)(3) organization, focusing on voter registration for pre-trial detainees and those convicted of misdemeanors in the state of Louisiana.  VOTE has since expanded its work to include education for Formerly Incarcerated Persons (FIPs) about their rights.  In order to seize on the groundswell of energy around civic engagement, in 2008, VOTE hired full-time staff and created an ambitious but well-planned agenda to effect greater change.  Currently, their language for discussing this important work and the impacted community has shifted to be more inclusive. They now refer to themselves as Voice of the Experienced.



In the most incarcerated state in the nation with the highest rate of recidivism, during the second wave of civil rights and Black Lives Matter movements, they face incredible injustices and yet overcome staggering obstacles.  Their reach now extends well beyond New Orleans and Louisiana, to a vast network of individuals and organizations highlighting, addressing, and fighting for criminal justice reform and an end to mass incarceration in America.
