This week we go from a refreshing New Member Welcoming Ceremony to Win Or Die. No one can say UUVerdugo isn't a riveting hotbed of ideas.
Last Sunday's Service
Facilitated by new member Liz Conejo, "Ableism And Its Consequences" was a dynamic discussion that got to the heart of the term's meaning and also covered what it wasn't. In addition, this Discussion Sunday featured our first New Member Welcoming Ceremony in years. Congratulations to Patriciaa Soares, Abby Diamond, Alexandra Ettinger Collins, Bill Poehner, Liz Conejo and Anna Smith! We are very happy to have you.
Here is an edited video of the proceedings. It is unlisted on Youtube.
Next Sunday's Service: August 13
Author Bruce Craven of Columbia University's Executive Education Program illuminates some hard-won leadership lessons experienced by very familiar characters.
