UUFLG Facebook Discussion

June 25 is our PRIDE SERVICE. The FitchFam is providing rainbow themed snacks that day. I really want our sanctuary to be blooming with all things rainbow. Can the kids' RE crew and I talk on this subject. I know you all have many fabulous ideas each week and I never want to take time away from what you all have been planning...but I was hoping to get some lil hands to help out with some of my ideas. ...

don't get me wrong here, I'm not posting this for the *instead*... but it's a great example of the type of culture wars that can take place between different stages of cultural evolution - like those we explored in Sunday's sermon.

This one epitomizes the Rational wave's critique of the Mythic (membership). And I'm sure you can imagine the mythic membership's vehement rebuttal.

When we see each wave as part of the human journey, perhaps we can see how each perspective has some gold in it.

For me, I would love to have our flag *represent* respect for humanity and justice. Then I think many more people would be stoked to pledge their allegiance.

What do YOU think?

Dear Friends,

I have long had a dream of creating an Urban Gardening collective in our local area - and with some co-inpired people this dream is becoming a reality. I'll soon send out a little overview of the master plan... BUT

Some of our members, Rick and Laurie, have requested some assistance with preparing their garden beds (as Rick is recovering from an injury!). I will be heading over to their place on *This* Sunday afternoon after our Business Mtg, and bringing something to put on the Grill.

Would you like to bring your muscles, and your early dinner/late lunch and join us for a little fun?

Please let us know if you can make it, and realize that you may be the one who gets community labor in YOUR back yard next!

For those who attended the meditation class today - here's the book I recommended. It will be a little to far out for some, and not far out enough for others - but it's a good beginning reference if you are into stuff about Chakras. You can just take what you like and discard the rest!

Dear friends,

Come to either class or both.... and do please tell anyone who you think would benefit. The timing of this class is because I need the practicum hours, but the INTENTION is to be of benefit to those whom this information can serve... so please spread the word, if you will!

Dear friends,

Would you like to assist me by attending a FREE meditation class for anxiety, trauma, and chronic pain? (and bring a friend?)

I am completing a meditation training and need to do some practicum hours teaching. I would like to teach 3 hours this week and wonder if you can attend 1, 2, or 3 class sessions this week.
