Link below is about the Women's March in Asheville on January 20th. Some UUs participated last year (Sandi, Evy, Janice, Dan Kowal, Selma, Jude, Jill, I, some more) and I thought it would be good to post in newsletter. It was an uplifting, hopeful experience to dispel some of the darkness surrounding us these days. Please get permission, if you need to, so we can invite more members.

JOYS & CONCERNS - January Straw Poll

In July 2018, the Worship Committee began a trial re-sequencing of Joys & Concerns in the order of service.  Based on feedback from the Open Forum, we would appreciate your feedback on this change and have created an online poll for members, friends, and others to respond.

Your thoughts and opinions are a useful tool in the running of the Fellowship. This method of seeking input is being developed.  PLEASE respond.  Your comments in any form are always welcome.

The poll is shown below and will run for the first three weeks in January at the link  below. The Worship Committee meets on the 4th Sunday when we will review the results and share with the community.
How do you like the current location of Joys & Concerns during the closing circle?

Straw Poll


Shared by Dan Teslow 

Unitarian Universalist Congregations covenant together to affirm and promote Seven Principles. Our Sixth principle is:


We want to believe, and strive to live as if it is true, that such a world community is possible in our life time. Rev. Jane shares her experiences growing up with white privilege and systemic racism, while challenging us to continuously seek spiritual renewal.

What might we find by reflecting on our own individual surroundings and activities; our own detachment and lack of empathy?  And what lessons does that reflection bring for living and developing our own compassionate awareness?”

Does that awareness lead to better communication? Does communication lead to Community, that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing, which makes peace, liberty and justice possible?

Will our Community institutionalize our mutual valuing into a system of just laws for all?
