October Services at CCUU PDF Print E-mail

Our October theme is “healing”

October 16 What Do We Know About Noah? The sixth chapter of Genesis shares the tale of Noah, a person of faith who built an Ark in his backyard. Rev. Jim will look at more than the tale of the ark, more than the animals who boarded two by two, more than Noah’s nudity after the ark landed, and at the legacy of Shem, Ham, and Japheth (his 3 sons) and all that we have made of their legacy in this world in which we live.

October 23 Lizzy Jenkins & Donna Jean Loy’s will feature the end-of-the-month celebration of Samhain, the pagan New Year. The name Samhain is derived from Old Irish and means roughly "summer`s end". A harvest festival with ancient roots in Celtic polytheism, it was linked to festivals held around the same time in other Celtic cultures, and continued to be celebrated in late medieval times. A modernized version of this festival continues today in some of the traditions of the Catholic All Souls Day, the secular Halloween, and in folk practices of Samhain itself in the Celtic Nations.

October 30 Cynthia Ramirez, our Unitarian Universalist United Nations Organization (UU-UNO) envoy, will lead us in our annual celebration of the close ties this congregation has with UU-UNO. That relationship was highlighted this past year when we received a plaque for our continued recognition of their good work at our General Assembly. This service will also lead into the appearance of Bruce Knotts, director of the UUUNO office, as a speaker at CCUU on October 31, 7pm.

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.
