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.
