Revolution or Living Tradition?
Holly Ulbrich

July is the month of three revolutions--American, French, and Cuban.  What lessons can we take from revolutions and their aftermath that inform our own faith tradition, born of the revolution called the radical reformation in Europe and nurtured by the democratic spirit of the American revolution?

Community Quilt Project
First Meeting - Sunday, July 7th - after pot luck

Marge Abel and Carla Woodmansee are planning a community quilt project to be put together by members and friends of UUFF. Each block could reflect an aspect of our UU community and even the larger community. We will use our imaginations and incorporate all skill levels.

Our first meeting will be on July 7th after the Potluck.  We are excited that this will be a fun project, allowing us to strengthen the bonds that already exist between us, to create new bonds and make new friends, and to build a stronger community. It will be “sew” much fun. We’re on “pins and needles.” Click on the link below to learn about a collaborative quilt project described in UU World.
