In the game of life, we all get dealt cards. Some get better cards than us, some worse. No matter, we are responsible for the cards we hold in our hand.
Music: MLUC Choir
MLUC's Trustees held a conversation over lunch about how MLUC fosters spiritual growth and fulfillment. This is one of the future-oriented, open ended questions that the Trustees are exploring this year as part of our visioning for the Church.
People traded their perspectives on how we perceive spirituality and what opportunities the church provides them to explore their personal spirituality. Everyone agreed it was a great way to get together to explore these open ended questions.
Look for the next soup and conversation in March.
Board of Trustees
When we pass the plate on Sunday, half the money we collect is donated to a charitable organization that aligns with our values. January's recipient is Laurel House, established in 1980 as a domestic violence shelter and hotline. Over the years, it has expanded to become the only comprehensive domestic violence agency in Montgomery County, now offering transitional housing, crisis intervention, and legal services. The organization also provides dating-violence and domestic-violence prevention, education, and training. Donated funds will go to Laurel House’s Client Assistance Fund, which helps clients in crisis who are in need of special help, such as a hotel room (when the shelter is full), transportation, or home security costs.
Pulitzer prize-winning journalist, David Zucchino, will speak at a free author event at Main Line Unitarian Church, Sunday February 2 at noon.
