July Theme:  Mindfulness

Sunday July 14
10:00 a.m.

Rev. Pat Jobe

"History, Humor and Hunger For A Mindful Memory"

While mindfulness calls us to the present moment, Rev. Jobe has been mindful of our UU past lately. As always he will seek the lighter side to keep us from taking ourselves too seriously, but in this worship service, he will also remind us, make us mindful again, of the great traditions that make us who we are. 

Please Note:  There will be a discussion group with Pat after the service where we will discuss the topic of the day.
This service will be Live Streamed on our Facebook page beginning just before 10:00 a.m. The service will also be saved to our Facebook page and can be viewed at a later time or date if needed.

“Lights for Liberty”
Vigil to End Migrant Detention
Meet in Beaufort at 84 Sea Island Parkway, the old theater near the High School.

There will be several speakers at the old theater at 8PM, then we will walk to the Richard V, Woods Memorial Bridge. At 9 PM we will turn on our lights and spend 2-5 minutes in silence shining them toward Beaufort. (Lights must be nonflammable—no candles or matches, only flashlights and phones). From the bridge, we will continue to walk to the Henry waterfront park and several more speakers will remind us of the atrocities we are witnessing at the border.


From downtown Beaufort: take the Richard V. Woods Memorial Bridge across to Lady’s Island. The old theater will be on your right past Meridian Road at the turn for Beaufort High School. From Port Royal and South of the Broad: take Highway 120, the Savannah Highway, right after crossing the Broad River Bridge. It will intersect with Highway 21, Parris Island Gateway, bear right. Follow Highway 21 to the right turn that takes you to the Sea Islands. Cross the McTeer Bridge and proceed to the stop light at Publix. Turn left. The destination will be about a mile on your left.


Join us for a FREE screening of Paris to Pittsburgh , a new film from National Geographic, produced by RadicalMedia in partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies -- narrated by Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award-winning actress and activist Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”). 

From coastal cities to America’s heartland, Americans are demanding and developing real solutions in the face of climate change. And as the weather grows more deadly and destructive, they aren’t waiting on Washington to act. Learn about their incredible stories in Paris to Pittsburgh, and be inspired to create change in your own community! Watch the trailer HERE.

We are excited to be hosting a screening of this incredible film at on Saturday July 13 at 2:30 p.m. with an additional showing on Sunday July 14 at 6:30 p.m.

We hope to see you there!

Our July Theme is Mindfulness:

Mindfulness means being awake. The best way to capture moments is to pay attention. It means knowing what you are doing.  Mindfulness practice means that we commit fully in each moment to be present; inviting ourselves to BE with this moment in full awareness, with the intention to embody as best we can an orientation of calmness, mindfulness, and equanimity right here and right now.
                                                     Jon Kabat-Zinn

July 21 - Rev. Pat Jobe: Attention, What A Price To Pay

Rev. Pat Jobe returns to ask us unto what are we paying attention? Are we burdened by news reports of horrors? Are we light and free when we see a dew drop clinging to a blade of grass? How do we balance the social conscious of Clara Barton against the mystic blue persuasion of William Blake?

Climate Justice:  Extending Our Reach
August 4 – 9, 2019
The Mountain Retreat and Learning Center, Highlands, NC
Conference Overview
This conference for adults and youth presents information about factors that have shaped the human impacts on climate change.  These climate changes are directly related to injustices, resulting from the intersection of race, class and environment.
 Conference sessions will extend your understanding of the causes and impacts of climate change, what climate justice means and how we go forward together.
Topics will include:
o   Climate Change in Relation to Justice, Action and Hope
o   Unitarian Universalist Green Sanctuary Program
o   Climate Change: Science and Impacts
o   Mountain Food Forest and Sustainable Agriculture; and Impact of Food Choices
o   Maskoke Ecovillage: An Intentional Indigenous Ecovillage Community
o   Project Drawdown – A Way Forward
o   Ways to Change Our Future
Parents participating in the Climate Justice Conference will have the option of an environmental program for young children ages 3-11.  This will be available for a limited number of children and is to be arranged individually with conference co-directors as soon as possible.
While it would be great to see you there, it would also be very helpful if you could help with publicity -- we want to get the word out to more people.
