A great annual tradition: David McElroy's one-man The Christmas Carol. Congrats on write up David!
Please take action.................
I was a little skeptical of today's topic, "Meet a Millenial," mostly because as an older millennial myself I have seen some very problematic generalizations about this generation. I have to say Joe Donatone rose to the challenge. His talk focused on the crisis of student loan debt, the unprecedented financial challenges our generation has faced in the aftermath of the great recession, and the role of ageism in portrayals of millennials that cast us as children even though the youngest among us was eligible to vote 2 years ago. Great service today!
Hi! I am Stephen, a mathematician and tutor with twelve years experience. With my help, study sessions are productive, because I can coach you according to your unique learning style. $25/hour for one on one, $20/hour if you book two or more hours per week, or split the cost with friends, $5 each additional student.

Thought I'd share this wonderful little story I found on the UUA website: A Lamp in Every Corner by Janeen K Grohsmeyer.
Hello, it's Josh. I will be bringing my hand made leather bags, para cord bracelets and keychains to church this Sunday. If you would like to look at them and maybe buy something they will be in the hallway on the table near the office.
UUUS Social Action Committee News: Just a reminder about the HOPE Back to School Bash collection. Collecting until July 29th. See list BELOW and on the collection box at UUUS (in corner by the closet unless it's moved into the Library). I just met with HOPE's Interfaith group and apparently they give each individual church a DIFFERENT list to avoid duplication or shortages. That said, ALL donations welcome! THANK YOU in advance or your generosity :) BACK PACKS LINED PAPER SCISSORS MECHANICAL PENCILS COMP NOTEBOOKS 1 or 3” BINDERS CHILDREN’S SOCKS CHILDREN’S UNDERWEAR GIFT CARDS –Target, Walmart, Office Supply Stores
I'm bringing my leather work and my para cord bracelet's to morrow if anyone wants to look at or buy any.

The fellowship and religion that inspires and encourages you on your own spiritual journey, while leaving your faith in your own hands

For those of you seeking a fellowship that aids and encourages you through your own spiritual journey in search of truth and meaning, we invite you to visit the UUUS, East Orlando's religiously open-minded Unitarian Universalist church. We are a friendly, caring congregation with weekly lay-led dialogues of diverse subject matter, including--but not limited to--science, spirituality, and social concerns. The services are multi-generational and the goal is to help you on your spiritual path and strengthen your sense of self, family and community. We join together to learn, reason, share, and to act for social justice in our community. Members and friends of our fellowship have varied religious backgrounds, beliefs, and interests, including traditional Christian (Protestant and Catholic), Jewish, Buddhist, and Humanist. All are welcome, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, religious belief, or lifestyle choices (GLBT). SUNDAY SERVICES * ADULTS' RELIGIOUS EDUCATION (aka Breakfast Club): 9 AM - 10AM Weekly topics include religion, current events, politics, science, and whatever else the group finds interesting. * CHILD CARE/CHILDREN'S RELIGIOUS EDUCATION: 9:30 AM Directed to aid families in their search for spiritual growth, giving children the building blocks they need to make choices that enable them to live in a right way within themselves and their communities--all done in a fun, enjoyable way. * MAIN SERVICE: 10:30 AM Children are welcome to attend main service or may attend an age-appropriate program. We also have a "wiggle" room with picture window, where young children and their parents can still enjoy the service. * SHOUTCAST: 10:25 AM http://www.universityuus.org/shoutcast.php Dress attire is casual and after service we have a weekly Coffee and Coversation social hour. Once a month, in lieu of this social hour, we have our Second Sunday potluck. We have a strong sense of community, including service, special interest, and support groups, etc. And we can't forget our wonderful Beacon Youth Ministry! We are non-profit organization and member of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) of Congregations and are located near the University of Central Florida (UCF), one-half mile west of Alafaya Trail (SR434) and one mile north of University Blvd. For more information about the UUUS or Unitarian Universalism, please visit www.universityuus.org.

Mission: To provide a liberal community with the intellectual freedom to explore religious alternatives, common values and the interdependence of the world's environment in order to promote the worth and inner peace of individuals and families. We will proceed with love, understanding and dignity, together with a sense of trust, service, intellectual stimulation, and mutual support to arrive at this place where "religion fits the individual." The purpose of this society is to promote and sustain liberal religious worship, study, service, and fellowship, as expressed in the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism: 1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person. 2. Justice, equality, and compassion in human relations. 3. Acceptance of one another and the encouragement to spiritual growth in congregations. 4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning. 5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large. 6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all. 7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence, of which we are a part.

PRESS RELEASE:
On Friday, November 15th, at 7:00pm, First Unitarian Church of Orlando and University Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will present Deeper Than the Skin: A Musical Presentation on Race in America by Reggie Harris and Greg Greenway.
Reggie and Greg have a unique story. Born three days apart with ancestry flowing through the same portal of history -Richmond, VA. They are on a pilgrimage together - one that began three decades ago. The racial divisions that are the reality of America started them in two different worlds but the amazing bonds of music, mutual respect, sheer admiration, and shared vision have brought them together as friends and colleagues.

Their stories together form the quintessential American story. The music that flowed from these experiences is powered by unadorned truth and is raw and riveting, beautiful and uplifting.

Echoing Gandhi, they believe that in telling our truths, we are able to rise up from the past and build bridges to each other and the future. The presentation will be interactive and there will be time at the end for discussion.
Reggie Harris, a Woodrow Wilson Scholar and the Music Education Director of the Living Legacy Project of the Unitarian Universalist Association, co-leads tours through the historic sites of the Civil Rights movement in the South. Solo, and in the duo, Kim and Reggie Harris, he has
led hundreds of programs on Race and Social Justice. Greg Greenway has been heard on NPR’s All Things Considered, Mountain Stage, and Car Talk. He’s played Carnegie Hall and had the honor of having his song, “Rosa Parks”, play, for two years, when rosaparks.com opened. For eight years, he was one third of the successful folk trio, Brother Sun.
Together and individually, Reggie and Greg have brought the issue of Race before audiences around the world.

2019 Water Communion

The Water Communion, also sometimes called Water Ceremony, was first used at a Unitarian Universalist (UU) worship service in the 1980s. Many UU congregations now hold a Water Communion once a year, often in the Fall.

Members bring to the service a small amount of water from a place that is special to them. During the appointed time in the service, people one by one pour their water together into a large bowl. As the water is added, the person who brought it tells why this water is special to them. The combined water is symbolic of our shared faith coming from many different sources.

In our congregation, this is also a time when we welcome our new members.
