What does being a UU mean to you? We all know the difficulty of trying to create an “elevator speech” in which we could describe Unitarian Universalism to a stranger. Sometimes it’s hard even to describe it to ourselves! But there are reasons each of us is here, and even though we do not “evangelize” or have salvation or eternal life to offer, we wish that many more people could know the comfort and joy that belonging to a UU congregation can bring.
If you want to be re-inspired about being a UU, I highly recommend the video “Voices of a Liberal Faith” found right at the top of the homepage on our website: www.uuverdugo.org. It may help you find your voice in sharing this faith with others. I guarantee you’ll be inspired!
I am thrilled that Rev. Gordon chose to focus on “Relationships” in his sermons during the month of September. How appropriate, as we begin our relationship with our new minister and his wife. I feel that one of our strengths as a congregation is our sense of community, filled with treasured relationships among us. Visitors often comment on the warm and welcoming atmosphere they find at our church. It is good to continue to consider our relationships, not only with each other and newcomers, but also our relationship to denominational life as UUs and our connection to the surrounding community and beyond. Let’s shine our light out into the world!
