Jeff Giddings Presenting If we are mindful and not wasteful, somehow we often receive what we need. A deep awareness of this cosmic generosity affects the way we feel about the world and other people. Bet Giddings will provide a musical offering, and Patty Simon’s recorder quartet will provide special music. The service will include a special announcement from Gil Cote about this year’s Pledge Drive. This morning we welcome Jeff Giddings to the pulpit. Jeff is a longtime member of this church and now serves as Assistant Treasurer, member of the Finance Committee and the Parish Committee, weekly live-stream
The children collected their first “I am” badge and reviewed the meaning of “threshold” and being welcoming. Additional badges will be offered every other week to ensure the children obtain the 16 badges for the lessons they had this year. They are inserting the badges into their build-a-bears. Next month we will be talking about legacies and some of our Unitarian Universalist heroes. Kelly Lownds, DRE Registration Link
