WV Interfaith Refugee Ministry

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

Here is an opportunity to do just that.

For the Beginning of the New Year

What are your New Year’s Resolutions?  What should our New Year’s Resolutions as a church be?  How can we be better and stronger in the New Year? How can we continue to be a beacon and a refuge? How can we reach out and touch our community in a better way? In other words, can we better live up to our mission statement in the coming year? How can you help? What are you willing to do?
I hope you have a beautiful and blessed new year full of love and light.
Namaste,
Cricket

There’s a UU Book Club!!

There is a Unitarian Universalist Book club on GoodReads. It is called Justice and Spirit. There are UUs from all over reading and talking about books. This can help us all learn and and grow together while we search for truth and meaning in our world.

From the UUA “The September pick for the Justice and Spirit: Unitarian Universalist Book Club is “Cultivating Empathy: The Worth and Dignity of Every Person—Without Exception” by Nathan C. Walker. “This emotionally honest and personal exploration of conflict introduces a creative and compassionate way to develop empathetic responses using the spiritual practice of the moral imagination.” Order your copy of this Skinner House title from inSpirit: The UU Book and Gift Shop, and join the conversation with the book club on GoodReads.”

Have fun reading.

Can we still be good neighbors in an election year?

This quote from the article spoke to me, “Each presidential campaign cycle seems to have less and less to do with governing or democracy, and more to do with deepening our divisiveness. Democracy requires disagreement and the skills to manage it, listening and tolerance.”  What spoke to you?
