doing the Zoom thing again this weekend? wonder if we could do a Wine-down Wednesday sometime?
Please delete if not allowed. I started a Facebook group for those that live outside Alamogordo in the Boles Acres, Oro Vista, Dog Canyon area. I think, especially, in these times it is more important than ever to come together within our community and build community among our neighbors. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2577946635814147/?hc_location=group
Thanks for the warm welcome. We enjoyed the service. See you next week. Carol and Charlie Stanfill,Cloudcroft
We’ve had regular discussions about living wills thanks to Carol bringing great information to us. I’m not sure about the product being presented here but the conversation is well worth looking at. Misunderstanding the intent even with the clear document isn’t just a consumer issue.
We've been having the worst luck with refrigerators... Ours went out. We tried to repair it ourselves and killed it. All the while I had been on the phone with Love Inc. to see if they had one to donate along with a chest of drawers for the kids. Contacted them several times and surprisingly, they haven't followed up... It's been a couple of weeks that I've been waiting for them to answer or return my calls... A nice guy on an Alamogordo garage sale group gave us one. It had been outside for awhile but it worked-- until now... Does our church have any resources to help? Know of anyone? Call me or Coz if y'all can give us some advice. Me: 404-6973 Coz: 921-5040
Please share
This is a very friendly place. The people are kind and supportive. I love how you share your joys and sorrows during the service. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit.
Thank you for letting me come and share about Acts3DreamCatchers.com. I enjoyed the service and the warm, friendly atmosphere. Blessings to you.
If anyone wants some sourdough starter, IM me and I will get you some on Sunday. Hate to throw out. I can get you instructions if needed as well.
We are going to bring a LOT of stuff to the yard sale come Sunday. You'll notice I brought the kids, and unfortunately had to take my leave with the little one before expressing my joys and concerns... well, from the moment I decided to seek the company and fellowship of people who cared about spiritual matters to this day I have felt as though I made the right choice and have been guided from powers I can not understand. My family has literally been saved by good people I met. In an act of compassion beyond all reason my wife and kids are all safely with me, far from the mad person who has undermined my family's well being these last 6 years. With my love and support, this family will go forward as one. I owe so much to Nick, and in turn to Glenn and Paula for being there for him. I too will pay this forward if ever the day comes when I am blessed enough to do so. I can never thank the good hearted people of this fellowship enough. You were there for me in the most trying days of my life and I will forevermore carry the fire of the Chalice within me. Blessed be!

Sunday 7-5-2020 Annual Meeting
"Standing Between the Fires" - A sermon by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

Our service today is in memory of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre— which happened 99 years ago on May 31. We are honored to have music (both secular and religious) from the era of Black Excellence before and after our historic Greenwood district was destroyed by the hands of white Tulsans. Special thanks to our local musicians Booker Gillespie and Cynthia Simmons for creating music for this service with Rick Fortner and David Smith. Rev. Marlin Lavanhar will share his messages about the anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre and the current realities of racial violence in America.

We will be sharing our joys, sorrows and offer advice for those who are in need of comfort during this difficult time. We will carry the flame together and keep on going through this.

Pacific Western Region

Good evening,

We received the below email from Sarah Millspaugh from the UUA, and in light of recent developments regarding COVID-19 in the state of New Mexico, it is with a heavy heart that the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Otero County will be cancelling all Sunday services, Family Game Night, UU Movie Night, and Wine Down Wednesday for the next two weeks. We will reassess the situation at that time. The Wicca 101 classes will be rescheduled at a later date.

If you would like the links to ANY of the topics below, you can message Dee and she will be more than happy to forward them to you. We hope that you all are well and stay that way! Wash your hands and avoid touching your face unless they are clean!

From the Pacific Western Region UUA:

Dear friends and colleagues in New Mexico,

I learned just a few hours ago that Governor Grisham is discouraging non-essential gatherings, such as worship services, in an effort to contain the spread of novel coronavirus 2019 in New Mexico. I am very sorry to hear this. The UUA strongly urges congregations to follow the guidance of state, county, and local authorities regarding gathering.

As part of my role with Safe Congregations in our Pacific Western Region and our UUA as a whole, I’ve been in close conversation with our congregations in greater Seattle, nearly all of whom cancelled in-person worship last week and many of whom gathered online instead. I and other UUA staff have also developed resources that can be helpful to you as you go forward. They are:

Planning for and Addressing Pandemics in Your Community, which includes guidance on modifying worship and small group gatherings/meetings.
A collection of COVID-19 resources including sample emergency operations plans, sample literature, and links to CDC guidance for faith communities.
Just-updated guidance on how to hold online worship and online meetings.

I just led a webinar on COVID-19 response today, and it’s repeated next week if you want to sign up. You can also watch it by video soon—it’s buffering as I type and I’ll be uploading it to the above (first bullet) web section as soon as I can.

And tomorrow, the UU Church of the Larger Fellowship is devoting their live talk show, The VUU, to online worship and “sustaining connection in a coronavirus world.”

Please let me (or Sarah Schurr, if she’s your primary contact) know how things are going for you and what else you need. It’s indeed a difficult place to be in, not knowing how much is too much or too little. But it’s always helpful to know that we’re not in it alone.

With faith, hope, and love,
Sarah

[12/13/19]   Our service for this Sunday, December 15, will be “Why We Celebrate Christmas" by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar. Why do Unitarian Universalists celebrate Christmas? I'm often asked this question because, historically members of UU congregations don’t believe in the virgin birth or the divinity of Jesus. But, if you look at the history of Christmas in America, a better question might be “Why do Christians celebrate Christmas since the holiday is so deeply influenced by Unitarians and Universalists?" I may sound as if I'm being provocative, but the reality is that UUs have played a major role in shaping the meaning, music, stories, and practice of Christmas as we know it. This is a very special video sermon. 🎅

10:00 AM – Coffee, snacks and conversation will begin in the Fellowship. ☕

10:30 AM – Service starts in the Sanctuary. 🔥

RE (Sunday School) topic will be "Celebrating Yule - A History of the Holidays” with stories, movies, music and more. 🎄

[10/11/19]   Our service for this Sunday, October 13, will be “One Community, Many Paths" by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar. Some people want to understand how Humanists and Pagans, Christians, Jews and Buddhists and people of multiple faiths and philosophies have created such a vibrant congregation together in the heart of this country. It’s not always easy to explain how we can all worship under the same roof but in this very special video sermon, Rev. Lavanhar breaks it down for you. It seems as if humanity is at a spiritual crossroads right now in which one fork leads to more fear and division and the other leads to more love and greater cooperation. ⛪️

Bring water that has touched the west, the north, the south, and the east, which comes from the sky, the surface of the earth, and from deep wells and springs within the earth. Bring water that belonged to lakes, streams, and reservoirs of fresh water that quenches our thirst.

Bring water to this place of meeting and sharing for our annual service that honors one of the sources of life. 🔮

[09/12/19]   Our service for this Sunday, September 15, will be “Small but Mighty: The Fellowship Movement" by Roxanne Richardson. Between 1948 and 1967, Unitarianism experienced a period of enormous growth, perhaps the most significant increase in numbers for any time in Unitarian, Universalist, or Unitarian Universalist history. One third of the people who swelled our ranks during these years came through the doors of newly organized "fellowships." The story behind the Fellowship Movement is one of the most interesting in all our efforts at evangelism. Building off from Rev Anderson’s sermon last Sunday, we will explore further the history, legacy, strengths and setbacks of our congregation as a small fellowship rather than a large church! 🌟

10:00 AM – Coffee, snacks and conversation will begin in the Fellowship. ☕

10:30 AM – Service starts in the Sanctuary. 🔥

General information

"Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religious tradition that was formed from the merger of two different religions: Unitarianism and Universalism. Both began in Europe hundreds of years ago. In America, the Universalist Church of America was founded in 1793, and the American Unitarian Association in 1825. In 1961, these denominations merged to form a new religion, Unitarian Universalism through the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Both religions have long histories and have contributed important theological concepts that remain central to Unitarian Universalism. Originally, all Unitarians were Christians who didn't believe in the Holy Trinity of God (Father, Son, and Holy Ghost), but in the unity, or single aspect, of God. Later, Unitarian beliefs stressed the importance of rational thinking, a direct relationship with God, and the humanity of Jesus. Universalism emerged as a Christian denomination with a central belief in universal salvation; that is, that all people will eventually be reconciled with God. Since the merger of the two denominations in 1961, Unitarian Universalism has nurtured its Unitarian and Universalist heritages to provide a strong voice for social justice and liberal religion. To learn more about Unitarian Universalism, please see the pamphlet, "Unitarian Universalist Origins: Our Historic Faith." For information on past presidents of the Unitarian Universalist Association, please see UUA Past Presidents." Courtesy of UUA.org
