Words from Rev. Barnaby

From the Minister

As I write this, the “wayside pulpit” message on our new sign is “Never put a period where the Spirit of Life has put a comma..” By the time you read this, though, we will be displaying an excerpt from one of our favorite UU Christmas readings: “Each night a child is born is a holy night.”

       The new quote was unanimously chosen for the sign at our recent meeting of our Council of Ministries. I chose the current message but it’s our plan that the Council will be choosing all of them from now on. 

      Why?  The monthly meetings of the Council bring together representatives of our diverse committees to share information about what is going on and to coordinate and support major events in the life of the congregation. We call it a Council of Ministries (not committees) because its focus is not on the myriad tasks that accumulate in keeping CVUUS going. Instead the Council exists to constantly steer our work toward maintaining vibrant fellowship in all we do. While the Board’s main focus is our Future, the Council’s main focus is our Now.

Member Stories

O congregation of sensible shoes.
O buttoned plaid shirts, men in neat beards,
O matriarchs with your practical Judy Dench hair,
O, church parking lot of Prius and Volt. We

are trying. We hung Black Lives Matter
over the door, and that’s not nothing.
Nobody is … read more.
