UUCOC is cohosting, so please come on out TONIGHT in Dallas! Answer the call to help put an end to the pandemic…GLOBALLY!

The Biden administration recently announced its support for a TRIPS waiver, which was a huge win for organizers. This would allow for the manufacture and distribution of generic COVID vaccines throughout the global south and poor countries; however, a few countries such as Germany and powerful pharmaceutical corporations still stand in opposition. Every day that passes means more death and new variants of the virus. To save as many lives as possible and help end the pandemic on a global scale, we must enact a swift and comprehensive final TRIPS waiver agreement as soon as possible.
We believe public health should be prioritized over the profits of pharmaceutical monopolies. This is why we are gathering outside the Consulate of Germany’s Dallas office to call on the German government to stand with the 100-plus countries that support a complete waiver of intellectual property rights of these life-saving vaccines and to also ensure testing and treatment for all.
Please wear masks and respect social distancing. Please BYO water in a reusable container, so as to respect the environment.

Is John 17:3 explicitly Unitarian? These muslims think so.
Let's get the Friday-Sunday Dec 4-6 Auction on here. I searched for a link, but found none, and it doesn't appear on the events calendar. Or am I as incompetent as I usually feel?
HE WHO BELIEVETH IN ME

He who believeth in me will live for eternity.

But what does it mean to believe in the Almighty?

Are you a true believer if you attend church?

Giving ten pieces of silver from your purse.

If I give twenty will my chances be greater than yours?

If I have none to give will they allow me through their doors?

Am I giving to the true needy, be it enemy or friend?

Or do I think that I am paying off my earthly sins?

Do I give a hundred pieces of gold to help build a large church?

But not throw down one piece of silver to the poor or the hurt.

Jew, Christian, Catholic, Protestant, Methodist, Pentecostal, Evangel, all

Religions of now, and those of which to come.

Tell me, do I allow religion to separate me, but preach that we are all one.

If we believe that GOD made us all then let not man keep us apart.

For the true meaning of GOD is not in a synagogue, church, or temple,

but only in the heart.

Be his words spoken in the forest, on the mountain, river, house, fortress or in

a prison cell.

It does not matter where they are spoken as long as they are spoken well.

Be it from a Rabbi, Priest, Preacher, Monk, or from a mere child.
Be it spoken to just a few for it does not have to be a crowd.

If it spoken in the lowest valley it will ring out on the highest mountain top.

God’s voice will be that of the flood of rivers not that of morning dewdrops.

The cup that the Lord holdeth is filleth to the brim.

One must not believe partially, but only totally to the Lord within.

One who goes to church every day but still does wrong.

Has wasted time and money that could had been better spent at home.

Do not waste money on building temples with large golden doors.

But gather your tithes together to feed GOD’s hunger and poor.

You will not go to heaven for being the one who wears the most

beautiful dress.

For it is only he who gives to GOD’s needy is the one who will be blessed.

We seek to build a community where what we believe is less important than how our beliefs guide and inform our participation in the world.

Please connect with us online for our services. We honor each individual’s spiritual journey. We celebrate life’s abundance in service to each other,
our community, and the world. We connect with each other in love,
respect and acceptance. Thus do we covenant together.
