ACTIVISM CORNER:

Love Resists Campaign is a UUA- centered resource through UUA.org. Please visit the UUA website for inspiration and elaboration.


Recycle. Reuse. Reduce.

Choose love first.

Families belong together. Children belong with their parents. Seeking asylum is not a justification for the infliction of even more trauma on those who seek safety.

It is not a sign of weakness to admit a mistake. Just learn from it, correct it if possible, and try your best not to repeat it.

To apologize for a wrong is the first, and perhaps most important, step in healing.

Recognize the humanity of your fellow human beings.

Jesus was a refugee... and commanded "Do likewise" in regard to the good Samaritan. So... do likewise.

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES :

“He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.”
~ J.A. Shedd

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.” ~Frederick Keonig

“Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exist at all.” –William Faulkner


A FRIENDLY REMINDER:
