Christian Heritage Group – 4th Tuesdays

Many of us with a Christian background find the transition to the UU way of thinking about religion and worship unfamiliar. We want to let go of dogma which no longer nourishes the spirit, but do not want to abandon the lessons which we believe offer a basis for moral and ethical behavior. The Christian Heritage Group offers time to discuss these issues with others with similar experiences.

In these challenging times we meet virtually. If you are curious, we invite you to join us for a session. Contact Rebecca Drennan at (rebecca@creativetransformation.com) and she will send you a meeting ID number. All are welcome.

Should UUCC Become an Accredited Green Sanctuary? UUA has a program to accredit congregations as Green Sanctuaries. The current version is Green Sanctuary 2030: Mobilizing for Climate Justice. What’s involved? The details are on the UUA website: Green Sanctuary 2030: Mobilizing for Climate Justice | Green Sanctuary | UUA.org.

Our Green Sanctuary committee would appreciate your input. The scope of this program is broader than a single committee so we would present a proposal to the board if we think accreditation should be investigated further. Question? Contact Caroline Eastman, Chair, at green@uucolumbia.org.
