Sunday, July 8 From the Ground Up: Working for a Just Recovery in Haiti
Led by Logan Bialik, Saul Flanner, and Kathy Walker – Whether you are attending Summer Institute or not, start your week out right with an inspiring service by our very own Logan Bialik, back from her first year at Kenyon College. With assistance from Saul Flanner and Kathy Walker, she will share her experiences with the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee as she traveled to Haiti for a week in the spring. Logan will discuss the meaning of social justice in an increasingly divided world and the hope that can be drawn from the lives of everyday people.
Summer RE Fun happens at 10:30 during the month of July
Our program for this summer, is “Stories that Inspire”, an all-ages, story-based program that will happen in Fessenden Hall. Nursery care will be available.
There will be no Time for All Ages during the worship services over the summer, so children should be dropped off and picked up in Fessenden Hall.
This Sunday’s stories will be “All Kinds of Families” and “Heather Has Two Mommies”. The session leaders will be Lori McGee and Jo Fatchet.
The Book Group will be meeting on Tuesday, July 17 at 7 pm in the home of Bonnie Harper. This month we are reading Unsaid by Neil Abramson. After veterinarian Helena Colden dies of breast cancer, she is unable to move on and narrates the emotional deterioration and struggle of her attorney husband David as he becomes involved in a court case to save the life of a chimpanzee. In August we will read The Paris Wife, a novel by Paula McLain, and in September we will read Lake of Dreams by Kim Edwards. If you have any questions you may contact Bonnie Harper.
The Library committee has created a donation form that will make it easier for the donors to be acknowledge. It also gives the committee options in case the donated book cannot be included in the permanent collection. We would be very grateful if you would use this form to expedite our work.
