Week of 11-27-19 New Announcements and Events

The December Meditation has been rescheduled to Tuesday, Dec. 17.

Sun. Dec. 1, First Sunday Poetry "Kindness Spoken Here,"  9:30 AM - 10:15 AM, 3rd Floor Library. Please join us for spoken poetry before worship.  The theme for December is "Silence" - as Hafiz writes, "is not most talking a crazed defense of a crumbling fort."  Bring a poem to share or just come to be silent.  Contact <a href="mailto:ronwei@yahoo.com">ronwei@yahoo.com</a> for more information. ~~ <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Dec. 1, Holiday Card Writing, Wendte Hall, After Sunday Service</strong></p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">On December 1 during and after the church service, we will be joined by Rev. Ranwa Hammamy of the Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry of California (UUJMCA) for a special holiday project.  The UUJMCA seeks to develop the skills of civic engagement and faith-rooted organizing so that UUs across California can educate, organize, and advocate for public policies that further our UU principles.  Black &amp; Pink is a nonprofit that organizes for the rights of LGTBQ+/HIV-positive individuals currently incarcerated in the prison industrial complex.  UUJMCA is supporting Black &amp; Pink in organizing holiday card writing parties to send cards to these incarcerated individuals.</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">On December 1, after the first part of the church service, Rev. Ranwa will join the children in the Starr King Room to share about this program and we’ll write cards with the children.   Then when the adults come out of the service around 11:30 a.m., we will be set up in Wendte Hall so that adults can also write holiday cards to incarcerated individuals that are LGTBQ+/HIV-positive.   We look forward to seeing you on December 1!</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">Questions?  Contact Ingrid Mittermaier at 415-203-4490 or <a href="mailto:ingrid@adlercolvin.com">ingrid@adlercolvin.com</a>.</p>

Hygiene Item Drive.
Club UU is collecting hygiene items socks, and pretty much anything we can fit into a bag to provide for our friends out in the community that may not have ready access to these things.  Feminine products, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, and deodorant are at the top of the necessity list but we will take anything that you are willing to give!  There will be lovely decorated donation boxes in the foyer until 12/15 for your donations. Thank you!

Sun. Dec. 8, “Beautiful Pillow Show II”, Wendte Hall After Service.

The “Beautiful Pillow Show II” comes to Wendte Hall December 8. A baker’s dozen of pieced and appliquéd pillows will be auctioned and raffled. All proceeds will go to the minister’s discretionary fund to give to homeless people who come by the church asking for help.  Last year we made $1700 thanks to very generous bidding. Get a handmade pillow and help the homeless this year!
