Maya Lunar New Year Ceremony at the UUCFM

To celebrate the Maya Lunar New Year on March 15, 2022, two Maya Timekeepers led a pre-dawn ceremony around the UUCFM fire circle.  Marta Matías, a GRACE Project director, and Rosa Etelvina Garcia, a lawyer and Maya Spirit Guide from Guatemala, built the sacred altar, honored the Four Corners (East, South, West, North) and Heaven and Earth, and then called in the 20 Maya Energies or Nahuales.  In the Maya Cosmovision, the Lunar Year lasts 260 days and the Solar Year lasts 365 days, and the Nahuales represent all aspects of Life.

Covid Protocol Update

 

The efficacy of vaccines and treatments has significantly reduced Covid’s danger for most of us.  As a result, the protocols for campus events have been revised: 

  1. Masks will continue to be required in the sanctuary during worship services.
  2. Masks are optional for coffee and other functions in Hobart Hall.
  3. In the library, classrooms, and other small spaces, masks are required UNLESS everyone present agrees otherwise.  We’ll continue to be respectful and protective of those of us whose immunity is impaired.
  4. Worship services and UU Dialogues will continue to be available on Zoom.

Although the Covid risk level will continue to fluctuate, I’m sure all of us hope the worst of the pandemic is behind us.  We’ll continue to monitor the risk and change the guidelines as needed to protect our congregation.

Please reach out to me with any questions at UUCFMPresident@UUCFM.org.

Namaste,

Mary Studer

President, Board of Trustees

Music Committee Survey

The Music Committee of UUCFM would like to hear from singers, former choir members, players and others who would like to contribute their talents and time to the UUCFM music program! 

The UUCFM music program is looking to expand its offerings to the congregation for Sunday services and other events by bringing the choir back together and adding experienced musicians to the “band”. We have put a short survey together, which can be found by using this link, which asks about specific areas of interest and has room for suggestions for the music program in general.

Please take a few minutes to respond to the survey and let us know how we can continue to make our music program great! You can also reach out to me directly if you prefer - Peter Golbitz, Music Committee Chair, at peter.golbitz@gmail.com.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.

This Day in Unitarian Universalist History

  • This Day in Unitarian Universalist History May 26

    1806 – Joseph Workman was born in Dunmurry, Ireland. He was the main founder of the First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto, Canada (1845). His brother, Benjamin, helped found the Unitarian Church in Montreal. He was a merchant in Toronto for 10 years. He established a hospital for poor immigrants and fought for free, nonsectarian yet Christian education. Workman considered exclusion of women from any branch of learning to be barbaric. Known as the “father of Canadian psychiatry,” he served as superintendent of the Provincial Lunatic Asylum.

Testimonials From Members - Why I Became A Unitarian Universalist

Antoinette Brown Blackwell (1825-1921), Unitarian minister.
“Throughout my life, I have addressed issues such as slavery abolition, temperance, and women's rights. In 1902, I helped found the Unitarian Society of Elizabeth, NJ, and served as its minister. In 1920, at age 95, I was the only participant from the 1850 Women's Rights Convention, in Worcester, MA, to see the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, giving women the right to vote.”
