In other news, we are opening the opportunity for leadership in the congregation at this time with an invitation to anyone interested in contributing through building and grounds, pastoral care, kitchen refurbishment, stewardship, or membership. Please consider donating your time and extensive skills to our organization, developing yourself as a leader, and investing in the future of AUUS with us. Our 2011 Stewardship drive is gearing up this month. Be listening for announcements and a service in preparation for this important responsibility we each maintain every year – the perpetuation of what was initiated nearly 200 years ago (anyone want to head up the bicentennial celebration of AUUS?) into a long future with power and contribution to our members and our community. Our freely given gifts to the organization allow us to increase our impact on the world, and the world needs more of us (UUs)!
Another suggestion we have from the membership is that people provide feedback on what is going on with our members and friends. I would love to include tidbits of news and notes from you in this monthly publication. I welcome your contributions in this area. I get to fill you in each month on my journey, and I miss the feedback from each and every dear one in our community, as do others. It is the tie that binds, and we DO care about what matters to you. What are you passionate about in other arenas of contribution – to the poor in our community and in the world – to the environment – whatever moves you. Do TELL.
