THIS SUNDAY MORNING:

Giving Thanks or The Problem with Thanksgiving

Unitarian Universalists share a religious heritage with the Pilgrims, after whom we have modeled Thanksgiving. As the 400th year since the landing of the Mayflower approaches, we must revisit the impact of this history on our faith. Gather to address the problem with Thanksgiving and to dig into ways to give thanks that honor repair and wholeness.

Garden News!
The garden has been turned over, composted, and given time to rest. Planting will happen this weekend !

Help is needed in three areas:
1) watering the seeds and young plants – takes about an hour, or 30 minutes with a partner – please sign up at the social justice table or by emailing greenteaminfo@uuclb.org.

2) emailing recipes to the Green Team – calling all cooks and also enthusiastic produce eaters that are good at looking things up on the internet, please send recipes for the veggies listed above to greenteaminfo@uuclb.org.

3) finding a way to deter rodents from eating the cauliflower and broccoli. If you have any knowledge or ideas about this, please email greenteaminfo@uuclb.org.

Thank you!
