Small Group Ministry is meeting to share in Success & Failure. We will talk about how we formulate our own ideas of success. We will learn about different ways of looking at failure and “cultivating the ability to see ourselves in an infinitely large light so our daily successes and failures wonʻt throw us.” We lovingly invite you to join us & break bread over our Potluck brunch, have a time of peace then commune by telling our stories and listening to one another with open hearts.
Any questions may be emailed to Katharine (firstname.lastname@example.org). Attached is a link to the readings and questions which you may choose to review before the meeting. The readings are also available on our website.
The final meeting of the 2018/19 BUUF Board has been rescheduled for Thursday, June 6th, at 1:00 PM, immediately following the BUUF Brunch. At this meeting, the board will finalize the 2019/20 budget and debrief the Annual Meeting. The next board meeting in July will involve the newly elected board membership.
Rev. Jim McConnell has ordered new, attractive, well-insulated windows for our BUUF building. All windows will be replaced, using endowment funds approved at our 2018 annual meeting. It is a big job since all windows in the sanctuary, RE rooms and kitchen will be replaced on the same day (hopefully). We will need volunteers to tear out the old windows, install the new windows, apply caulk and clean up afterwards. Rev. Jim assures us that there is plenty of work to do for people of all strengths and abilities. We will need at least 8-10 volunteers on Windows Installation Day in order to finish the job.
If you can make it, please join the team. Lunch will be provided for all volunteers. If you can’t help with the windows but would like to provide a dish, cold drinks, popsicles or anything else to make the job easier for our volunteers, please do so. Let’s all come together and get the job done!
Berrien Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is excited to announce our next Mindfulness Workshop: “The Bell of Mindfulness” by Thich Nhat Hahn. Sandy Walker will lead us in learning the different breathing words that accompany this meditation technique which is sure to slow your pulse & bring you to the present moment. After the guided meditation, we will try out Thich Nhat Hahnʻs gratitude walking meditation in the front garden.
