For decades, our guest speaker Doug Sea has served as a legal aid attorney, where he passionately advocates for systemic change and mentors young advocates.
A longtime member of the UU Church of Charlotte, Doug is a sought-after writer and speaker -- and we’ve got him!
This Sunday, it’s the return of Rev. Melissa Mummert to our podium, and the beginning a new monthly theme. Since April is a month frequently started with tricks and foolery, we’ re defying that by choosing the theme “Truth.”
The next of our regular All-Committee Nights at the church! Join us at 6:00pm with a brown-bag supper -- then at 6:30 we'll break off into our groups. Later we get back together to give brief reports on what we've done. It usually turns out to be fun because we enjoy each other's company!
Pick the committee that most interests you:
David and Lisa Thurman, singers/songwriters themselves, are coordinating this and emceeing the event as well. They suggest a $5 donation at the door, with proceeds dividing between the Featured Artist and the Native American organization Honor the Earth (http://www.honorearth.org).
So here's how the evening will go:
In an age of "alternative facts" and "fake news," our search for truth has been compromised. So Lay Minister for Worship Sharon Smith asks: "what's a UU to do?"
Our Social Concerns / Social Justice Committee’s project to “CHANGE the World” this month will benefit the HAITIAN HEALTH FOUNDATION.
You can leave your spare change (or donation) in our CHANGE jar in the church foyer. Thank you for helping!
Our UUCCV library collection – the Max Curdy Library – located in our front office has been nicely reorganized and labeled so you can more easily find things of interest. AND a complete listing of our books has now been created and will be updated as new or donated books are added. You can find that list on our new Library page!
Did you see the excellent story by LeAnne Bartelt in the Hickory Daily Record?
