This Sunday

Labor Day Picnic & Worship

Rev. Barnaby Writes

From the Minister

After a week at General Assembly, I’m overstuffed with ideas and challenges that grabbed my attention, stories that inspired me, and empathy for those whose sharing was centered in pain and disappointment. I’m joyful from the chance to participate in and hear so much amazing music and worship. And I feel a deepened faith that the world needs us to successfully nurture Unitarian Universalism in Addison County and far beyond. Read More about “From the Minister”

Save the Dates!

Labor Day Sunday Picnic & Worship, Stonewood Farm, Orwell

We once again will celebrate Labor Day Weekend by gathering for Sunday worship on Sept 4 at 11 am at the Stone’s farm instead of CVUUS. The service is followed by a potluck meal, tours of the farm, music, and other fun activities for the entire family. Rev. Barnaby, the Stones, and the worship team will lead a family-friendly celebration of our connections to each other through our relationships with the land and the food humans produce from it.

Member Stories

I’m Chris Prickitt, and I’ve been coming to CVUUS for nearly three years.  I grew up in Middlebury, went to the Mary Hogan School for my elementary years, fifth and sixth grade in what is now Twilight Hall, and High School, class of ’69.  I went to Colby College and ended up staying there in Maine for forty years after college, working on a farm for five of those before entering the teaching profession.  I taught 8th grade English for thirty-one years. I returned to Vermont in June of 2013. I’ve been working for the last two years at Eastview, the retirement community up beyond Porter Hospital.  I’m on the maintenance crew, but I also drive residents in the bus or van to appointments and special events. I get to play music there twice a week as well. (EastView is where I got to know David Flight and Abbott Fenn and actually quite a few of our current CVUUS members.) I enjoy many special relationships with residents an co-workers there.  Oh yes, life is good, and I am happily back in Middlebury.
