News – July 22 2022
Dear First UU Community,
I hope you are doing well this summer! Risking a horrible understatement… it’s hot here in Houston, so if you are here in the city, I hope you are finding ways to stay cool. I try to get outside in the morning hours. Before 9:00 AM, I actually enjoy being on my bike and taking care of the garden, giving me my desperate need to be outdoors some each day. There are also sprinklers, ice cubes carefully placed on top of the head and the shade of trees which sometimes help as the day gets hotter, as well as museums, libraries and cafes that don’t mind folks hanging out. You can also come to (air-conditioned) church, where you can see your friends, be inspired and feel the love of your community!
Sunday, as part of our July series on Reimagining Democracy, I’ll lead
multigenerational worship looking at common indigenous worldviews that
connect with the ideals of a healthy democracy. Families can come
together to experience something for all: songs, drawing, reflecting,
and yoga, in addition to readings, a homily, and our other regular
summer, we continue to have worship services at 9:30 and 11:30 and an
all-ages Religious Education program at 11:30 for children and youth. On
August 21st, we will have our Ingathering Sunday with our annual Water
Communion. We invite you to collect some water from your travels or your
home adventures to bring to Water Communion, symbolizing our shared
connections and celebrating the beginning of our church year.
We hope to see you on a Sunday soon.
Director of Religious Community
