November 27 and Beyond…



This Sunday and Beyond…Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving, Nearly 20 years ago, the UUA recognized us as a Welcoming Congregation. Now we have the opportunity to renew that status, and we begin today. A week out from public trauma against the queer community, we will look at how our world has changed since we first named inclusion as one of our congregational values. We’ll explore how Unitarian Universalism has changed and how we can begin the work of drawing our welcoming circle wider still so that we may create a space where all people are not only told they are sacred, they feel it deeply in our actions. Our service begins at 10:30 AM. If you plan to join us online, click Launch Service. MUSICLinden Tree Coffeehouse’s WINTER POTPOURRI is back for an evening of discovering new talent on Saturday, December 10, at 7:30 pm. Kirsten Manville and ten New England singer-songwriters will play two songs each with hopes of being chosen to perform during next year’s season. Audience input will play a significant part in the decision, so please come down to help choose while enjoying new music and faces. The admission for this show is a suggested $10, which we will share with the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry.

So many community members came, but ASUC’s sanctuary couldn’t accommodate everyone who wanted to participate in the vigil. Unable to get into the church, many didn’t leave but stood in the cold in silence. COMMUNITY OUTREACH Salvation Army Holiday Gift Giving Drive – Begins this Sunday.
