Sunday Service: "Addiction, Shame, and Despair, All Fruits of the Same Tree"

“What is addiction, really? It is a sign, a signal,
a symptom of distress. It is a language that tells us
about a plight that must be understood.”

– Alice Miller

This Sunday, January 23rd, we continue with our monthly theme of Mental Health by focusing on addiction and despair. In a message titled: “Addiction, Shame, and Despair, All Fruits of the Same Tree” Beth La Fleur, Brett Maccani, Terra Lenox, and Rev. Jim McConnell will share their perspectives. Additionally, Helena La Fleur will show a video, she created herself, that demonstrates different ways to be kind. The Story For All Ages will address what it is like to be a child whose parents are recovering from addiction, and, as usual, there will a lot of great music.
Join on Zoom for this important service.
Note: There will be no RE class over Zoom this Sunday. Instead, we’ll be planning a winter outing for families and children. Stay tuned for details!

Prepare and Serve Lunch at Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen @ Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen
Feb 5 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Berrien UU  Fellowship serves lunch at the Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen the first Saturday of every even-numbered month (February, April, June, August, October and December). Berrien UU volunteers prepare the meal, greet guests and help clean up the kitchen. This is a terrific opportunity to serve the greater community, support our Social Justice mission and enjoy the company of fellow BUUFers and guests at the kitchen. Rev. Jim McConnell generously leads the group in planning the meal and dessert and he will gladly find a role for all volunteers, whether they’ve helped dozens of times or this is their first time. Please consider coming to the Soup Kitchen to help, even if it’s only for an hour or two.

The Soup Kitchen is located at 233 Michigan Street in Benton Harbor.
