Sunday September 12st - 9:30a and 11:00a 

Bound Together for Freedom by Beth Chronister, Ministerial Resident

This Week

An introduction to Unitarian Universalism as a spiritual path, Rev. Mike Morran will guide participants though a deeper exploration of the unique religious tenets and spiritual practices of Unitarian Universalism. Subjects include, “the Unity that makes us one,” Universalism, Pluralism and Covenant, Love and Justice. We will meet on five consecutive Tuesday evenings, September 23rd, to October 21st, from 7:00p to 9:00p.

We are interested in adding more volunteers to our team. We want to spread the work and participation to a broad cross-section of our Unitarian community to get as many people’s input and help as possible. Here are a few new roles that we are looking to fill:

I wanted to write to recognize all of the people in our church who have been writing pages and other content areas for the church’s new website template. The help has been appreciated and all the positive feedback and enthusiasm has inspired us all. Web Content Writers – I would like to thank all 26 volunteers who have helped write and edit 10 new web pages that are visible on our production website.
 

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.
