– "Dreaming a
Better World for Workers"
– Rev. Molly Housh Gordon
Utopian imagination has historically been an important part of the
international labor movement. Utopian experiments in community are also a
part of Unitarian history. This Labor Day weekend we examine the history of
utopian visions and wonder together – are we dreaming big enough as we
imagine Beloved Community?
– First Sunday Potluck Luncheon
On the first Sunday of each month, we gather for loving fellowship and
hearty eating after worship so we can get to know each other better and
build lifelong friendships. We invite all guests to join us, whether or not
they have brought food. Everyone pitches in, making light work of setup,
serving and cleanup. We ask those attending to bring a main dish or side
dish sufficient to serve six-eight people so we will have plenty of food. To
promote sustainability, the Green Sanctuary Team urges everyone to consider
bringing their own plates and utensils.
This all-congregation activity cannot be sustained without willing
volunteers to help with setup and cleanup. Setup takes place during worship
and requires four or five people. Cleanup after the potluck requires six to
Sign up here.
In addition to your potluck contribution, please remember to bring one or
more non-perishable food items for the food barrel upstairs near the coat
rack. When the barrel is full, the food is taken to the Central Pantry,
which serves Columbia and Boone County.
– Laid Back Labor Day Potluck Picnic
A potluck picnic, friends, and miscellaneous fun. What better way to spend
Labor Day than doing nothing much with friends and family?
Join us near the Native Garden behind the church. Bring a dish to share,
chairs or a blanket, and games, drums and other fun stuff as you desire.
New to the church? This is a great way to get to know us!
