Dear Ones,

I’ve heard from a number of you that you wish to attend the Covenant Workshop this Sunday but that you have some concerns about the length of the day (especially combined with the time change – Spring Forward that day).  Our guest leader Rev. Hope Johnson and I would like to start at 12:30 (still giving us an hour or so for lunch) and we will end by 3PM (instead of 4). Thank you to all who completed the RSVP form last Sunday or who have contacted me since.  If you have not yet signed up, there’s still time, and we’d love to have you with us. Please email me if you plan to attend the workshop, and let me know the number of adults and children.


Worship  – 10:30 a.m.
Lunch – 11:30 a.m. (Delicious Soup and Bread from our Questers – $5.00 to fund Quest activities) – please save the soup for people staying for the workshop!
Covenant Workshop – 12:30 to 3 p.m.

This Sunday we have an opportunity to spend time imagining and learning together about how we move forward together as a loving, justice-seeking community of faith.  I can think of no better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than gathering with all of you. Something happens when we gather. Come be a part of this important conversation.

Here is some information about our guest presenter and worship leader, Rev. Dr. Hope Johnson.

Hope Johnson serves as Congregational Life Consultant for the UUA’s Central East Region and the Southern Region. She brings specialties in conflict resolution and multicultural congregational development. 

She is the former minister of UU Congregation of Central Nassau, NY, where she served for 15 years. Previously, she served as Minister of Spiritual Life at the First Unitarian Church of Brooklyn, New York and Director of Religious Education at the First Unitarian of Brooklyn, New York. She also brings a wealth of experience from her years of wider UUA leadership, including the UUA Appointments Committee, the UUA Nominating Committee, the UUMA Continental Good Offices team, and a variety of UU College of Social Justice leadership positions, just to name a few.
