Words Make Worlds: The Etymology of the Divine with poet and author, Dominique Christina

A poetic exploration of language as it relates to spirit.

This Week

The Adoption Exchange will receive our Giving in Action offering this Sunday. Since 1983, The Adoption Exchange has connected over 7,000 children waiting in foster care with permanent adoptive homes. Many of these have been hard-to-place children because they are school-aged, members of sibling groups who don’t want to be separated, are coping with physical disabilities, or are struggling with emotional challenges as the result of their painful pasts.

On Thrusday July 24th, the Colorado Health Foundation honored First Unitarian's Elisabeth Arenales, the director of the Colorado Center on Law and Policy's Health Program, with the distinguished John K. Iglehart Award for Leadership in Health Policy. The award recognizes a person whose wisdom, involvement and leadership consistently advanced the cause of health and health care for the people of Colorado.

Plans are underway for the 2015 First Unitarian Society photo directory. By being photographed you will receive a complimentary directory and 5x7 portrait. Your participation is very important so please sign up right away by calling Bettinger Photography at 303-400-6023. Volunteers are also needed to greet photo sessions here at First Unitarian Society.

Making a Difference

The Reason We Connect

Q: What are some of the reasons that you have become connected to First Unitarian Society of Denver?

Patrick C. - My goal as a Leadership Development Committee member is to assist in the process of identifying and encouraging new and ongoing leadership in our congregation. As background, I have been an active member of First Unitarian for over 20 years. I have served on a number of First Unitarian committees, been an RE teacher for many years when my sons were younger, and I am now completing my third year on the Board of Trustees.

"In war, truth is the first casualty."

                          -Aeschylus

Here in July of 2014, the news is dominated by war. War between Israel and the Palestinians, war in the Ukraine, war in Nigeria, war in Syria, war in Iraq, war in Afghanistan. NBC Nightly News last week headlined their coverage of Central American refugee children as, “War on the border,” making truth a casualty even in the absence of war. (Refugee children seeking safety and asylum most emphatically do NOT constitute a war.)

There Is A Unity That Makes Us One?

Thou art a man. God is no more.
Thy own humanity, learn to adore.
