Together We Can Do So Much
Rev. Doug McCusker
Worship Associate: Kristen Tuxbury

The full quote from Hellen Keller is, “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”  That characterizes what it means to be in religious community.  We come together to make a bigger impact in our lives, in our communities, and in the world.  We persevere as a liberal faith in the Bible belt because we have each other to rely on and to hold us accountable.  As we embark on our annual Stewardship Campaign, we will examine how our generosity and collective spirit enable us to live into our values and dreams for the transformation of the world.

INTRODUCTION TO UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISM AND THE FELLOWSHIP OF FREDERICKSBURG

Are you new to Unitarian Universalism?  Do you want to know more about our Fellowship?  We have a class that will help you with these questions, and more–UU101.  This quarterly class will be held on February 25, 2018 at the UU Fellowship of Fredericksburg from 12:00-4:00pm. Lunch will be provided. UU 101 covers topics such as the history of Unitarian Universalism; activities that interest you; requirements of membership; governance of this Fellowship; and how to become a contributing congregant. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet newcomers like yourself and share your respective religious/spiritual journeys in a safe and positive setting. It is also a part of the path toward membership. To register for the class, please fill out the form at this link: UU101  or send an email to Nancy Michael at uuff@verizon.net and ask to be included.  Let us know if you need child care. It will be great to get to know you better.
