 Second Sunday Collection – September 11

Our charitable plate collection this month will benefit Lead Lab, Inc., a not-for-profit organization started by CCUU member Dr. Howard Mielke.  Lead Lab, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Louisiana on April 27, 1992, and provided analytical services to measure play area soils as part of the overall effort to prevent childhood lead poisoning. Its mission is to promote a more environmentally just, healthy and humane society. Lead Lab, Inc. activities include: research activities to map soil lead throughout the city; support the operation of a laboratory facility for analytical work on environmental media (i.e. soils, indoor and outdoor dust, and paint coatings) in settings where children may be exposed to toxins; educate parents, caretakers and the community via presentations about preventing exposure to toxins; and pursue proactive intervention to prevent childhood exposure to environmental toxins. Recover New Orleans projects have been undertaken to cover polluted soil with lead-safe soil at childcare center, parks, and residential play areas.  Howard will update us on their work.

Our Monthly theme for September: Covenant

September 4, The Fight for $15. Rev. Jim’s Labor Day message will look at the ongoing fight for a $15 wage. It will include the history of this movement over the course of the last few years and charts, graphs, and exercises as we consider trying to live on $7.25 an hour.

September 11, We Begin Again in Love. Your minister’s service features our monthly theme, covenant, a review of our congregational covenant of right relationship, and our annual water ceremony. Please bring some water from a place you visited this summer.

September 18, The Reverend Jacqueline Luck will be our speaker. Details for this service will follow.

September 25, I, Rev. Jim will draw from the writings of Emerson in a message that carries us toward his concept of individualism. We will see not only his subtle shift from the “eye” to the “I,” we will also consider a shift on the Biblical phrase “I am that I am.” Community.

Economic Inequality PDF Print E-mail

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.
