Remembership – December 4, 2022 – Rev. Kevin Tarsa and UUCM’s newest members 

Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains
December 4, 2022
Rev. Kevin Tarsa with Cheryl Morris and Carol Nimick, Worship Associates

We remind each other often that membership in this community is an unfolding journey. Joining officially is one meaningful and powerful moment in that journey, though it is neither the beginning nor the end of it. Those who’ve been members for a while eventually reach another kind of threshold that in effect invites them into re-membership. This Sunday, we celebrate all of it, welcoming UUCM’s newest members into this marvelous caravan.
