When asking yourself, “but what can I do, I am just one person?” The answer is always to find others and band together.

Trump Bars Refugees and Citizens of 7 Muslim Countries – NYTimes.com

“Yesterday’s executive order targeting refugees and Muslims is an affront to the core values of the United States. Our country has always been a beacon of liberty, and we should not now close our doors to people fleeing violence, hate, oppression, or persecution. All of the world’s major religions affirm the moral imperative to welcome the stranger. Unitarian Universalist congregations welcome individuals of all backgrounds and beliefs. I mourn with all of those whose hopes of a better future have been dashed due to the actions of President Trump.” -The Rev. Peter Morales, President of the Unitarian Universalist Association

Pokémon Go!

Pokémon Go seems to have taken over the thoughts of America right now. We found this post from the UU church in Fresno and thought we would share.
