Principled and Purposeful: What Does it Mean to be UU in These Times – Sunday, July 3 – 10:30 AM

The last few years have not been easy, including in our local congregations. Whole swaths of members have simply stopped coming; COVID is confusing,
and polarizing; many ministers have joined the great resignation; and Pew studies and friends alike have pronounced the end of the local church.

In this moment, when so many of us might be wondering if
we should just give up, and relent, now’s the time instead
to double down on our commitment to the local church –
this unique community that saves us and also breaks our
hearts – often much more of the latter than we’d like to
admit. In the midst of our culture of death, the church is
a place of life. Or it is, as long as we are willing to bring
our own lives to it. Join us for a morning of celebration,
witness, and future-visioning for the already and not yet
power of the local Unitarian Universalist church.

Jim Bair Show at UUCM Focuses on Nature

While Jim’s career included extensive international travel, wonderful opportunities for nature photography have been in the Western US.
