Resilience Through Letting Go
Rev. Lee anne washington, minister
Sometimes we hold onto past injustices, unmet expectations, and disappointments long after the painful experience. In doing so, we get emotionally and psychologically stuck; and when in this state we often miss out on much of the good stuff happening now. Resilient people, however, are able to let go of the past, live in the present, and are hopeful for the future. Join Rev. Lee Anne as she explores a Buddhist story about letting go and shares two spiritual practices that will help us remember to let go and live in the present.

Social justice pledge
As Unitarian Universalists how do we live our Mission to ‘Act for Justice’?
This year the Social Justice Committee is suggesting that we all make a pledge to commit to ways we will act for social and or environmental justice in the coming year. Visitors are welcome to participate.
We have some suggestions for ways you can affirm and promote the FIRST and SEVENTH Principles – The worth and dignity of all and the interconnected web of all existence. Many of these are initiatives we currently sponsor or support in our local communities.
Click on: Social Justice Bulletin Board.
See us this Sunday at the 'Pledging Tree' during coffee hour to talk with us and post your pledge leaf on the tree.
Thank you, Social Justice Committee

WHO WE ARE
Unitarian Universalism is a covenantal, non-creedal religion-- meaning we are bound together not by dogma or doctrine, but by our commitment to be in intentional and thoughtful relationship with one another as we walk the journey of seeking the truth.
As a community that is committed to living, working, and worship with each other in ways that foster individual and collective growth, we agree to live by our covenant.
To create an atmosphere of trust and safety, we agree to call each other back into covenant and to forgive ourselves and others.
Media Roundup: Unitarian Universalists rise up to protest U.S. treatment of immigrants
Members of First Unitarian Universalist Society of San Francisco, California, protested the immigrant detention camps along the border, and particularly remembered the children who have died in U.S. custody. The congregation’s minister, the Rev. Vanessa Southern, said, “Nobody wants to see children suffer. . . . Once we rise up together then I think the sea of change will wash over this nation and we’ll be able to overturn some of the rules, pass some more legislation that’s more protective.” (KRON4, July 21)
The Rev. Sadie Landsdale, minister of the UU Church of Greensboro, North Carolina, recently helped facilitate a meeting of the Siembra NC Solidarity Committee, which supports the work Siembra NC does to protect immigrant communities. Speaking to new participants, Landsdale said, “You came because you’re feeling enraged; you came because you’re feeling helpless. . You know that change isn’t going to happen unless you put your shoulder to the wheel, and we hope that you leave with some emails, a plan of action, and more information than you had when you came in.” (Triad City Beat, July 18)
The UU Congregation of Central Nassau, New York, was one of many UU congregations that held a “Lights for Liberty” event. Elizabeth Gonzalez, the congregation’s worship arts chair, thanked attendees “for being here for Lights for Liberty, to take a stand against the horrific atrocities and human rights violations that are being carried out in our name right now.” (Long Island Weekly, July 17)
