WANTED: Delegates for GA
Delegates are needed from SFUU for the upcoming General Assembly in Louisville, Kentucky, on June 19 -23, 2013. If you can’t go there, you can be a virtual delegate and attend in the comfort of your own home. Go to http://www.uua.org/ga/virtual/index.shtml and get information on how this is done.
If you would like to be one of our three delegates, please contact Andy Cramer (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Marsha von Dessonneck (email@example.com).
May 18th SPIRITUAL PRACTICES CLASS
There are so many spiritual practices that can help ground and center us during challenging times AND, more importantly, ways we can engage our well-being to stay healthier in our striving to manifest more peace on this planet we share. Working for justice can sometimes be exhausting or spiritually depleting, particularly when change doesn’t come easily or quickly; when we experience a set-back in progress; when communication is challenging, a vote doesn’t go the way we’ve hoped, or people use their power for ill rather than for good. Each class will explore different spiritual practices that can nurture our beings no matter what is happening in our lives. Saturdays May 18, and June 1 from 9:00 - 11:45 AM. Contact Rev. Wendy Bartel at firstname.lastname@example.org or 530-823-0953 to learn more or to sign up for the class! Donations gratefully accepted at the door.
