SCOUT SPACE:

Last month's Scout Sunday was a success.  Thank you UUFBC!

This month we plan to focus on service as we continue our Family Life and Citizenship in the Community badges.  Whether we clear trails, plant gardens, or clean up parks, we are serving others.  Let's encourage each other to get creative and get messy with projects for (and hopefully with) our friends and families!

Our Seven Principles:

1)  The inherent worth and dignity of every person;

2)  Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;

3)  Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;

4)  A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;

5)  The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;

6)  The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all.

7) Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Please, let's be thankful for how fortunate we may be... and be mindful that needs of the less fortunate occur all year long and require just as much attention as the giving holidays.

 

There is no Planet B.  We need to shake the tree, everyone, to defy the ignorance, hate, bigotry, and greed that places us all in peril. We have no other choice but to succeed. Failure is just not a viable option. 

DID YOU KNOW: 

The carbon placed in the atmosphere in the Industrial Age has lingering effects on us today? It did not disappear; C02 just builds and builds and amplifies detrimental ecological effects. 

We need to act. Not tomorrow. Now.
