Sunday, November 19, 2017 Worship Service
This service will be our annual Guest at Your Table (GAYT) Sunday. This is the time of year when we are focusing on the work of our UU social action group, the Unitarian Universalist Committee (UUSC).
Throughout the world, UUSC fosters social justice and works toward a world free from oppression. UUSC advances a full array of human rights — promoting economic justice, bolstering environmental justice, and protecting rights at risk. UUSC also works to deliver aid with dignity and advance the rights of people left behind during humanitarian crises, which include forgotten conflicts and natural disasters. For the next few weeks, please think and talk about the work of the UUSC especially when you sit down to a meal with your family. Whenever possible, collect coins at mealtime to set aside for this work. Each family will receive a box for the donations. During the worship service on January 7 we will gather the donations. Please convert the coins (and bills) into a check made out to First Parish with GAYT in the memo line. Gifts of $125 or more are eligible to be matched dollar for dollar by the UU Congregation at Shelter Rock. UUSC’s grassroots partners make a big difference in their communities, and so does your participation in GAYT. That is why this year’s program theme is Small Change is Big Change.
