UU Youth:  Reflections on Service

Youth Group

Youth group led service.  Please join us and hear how the youth desire to serve went into action this year.  They seek donations of paper goods and cleaning supplies for the John Graham Shelter – paper towels, saran wrap, baggies, foil, toilet paper, kitchen and bathroom cleaners.  

Rev. Barnaby Writes

From the Minister

Sabbatical Report, Part 1

Winter sun, day’s keel
Above silent whiteness laid
Deep and wide last night on playing fields.

Released from her leash
Lyra plow-bounds hard away
To the woods, expecting squirrels at least.

I head for the path
More remembered than present,
And sing out through the trees, “Where’s Lyra?”

Rested snow slips down
Now life-filtered, a slow jazz
Of flurry and pauses, and so resounds

A forest praise-song
For intervening branches:
I hear soft thuds, rolls, and grace notes throng.

“Everywhere we rise,”
The trees say. “We make countless
Ways to dawdle, fall, be otherwise.”

They point out Lyra;
She’s sensing something alive,
burrowed into the understory.

No need to hurry
Today, she and they agree.
Stay incomplete, and be.

Member Stories

As some of you know, I was raised in this community from the age of 9. I vaguely remember the infamous first meeting in the Berninghausen’s, and remember well every stage of our growth leading up to this lovely space. In the early days of planning CVUUS it was my own mother who made the “piss or get off the pot” pronouncement which perhaps prompted the paths of fate which have brought us all together today. I know her bluntness and aforementioned approach to life and decisions has prompted many a move in my own life.
