I seek the spirit of a child,
the child who meets life naturally…
-Carl Seaburg, lyricist

Rev. Katie’s Animas View
Tuesday night the Faith Formation Team met, and welcomed in Rev. Leah Ongiri, who will serve half-time as our Family Ministry Coordinator while UUFD moves through this transition year of ministry changes, continued Covid challenges, labor shortages, and last spring’s inability to attract a qualified candidate for our religous educator position.
Leah will work 20 hours per week, helping us shore up and enliven our Faith Formation Team, work with the Director of Faith Formation Search Team to review the needs and possibilities for next year, and coach lay leaders to help us see where we are and what we want in terms of an all ages (from the youngest to the eldest) faith community. We need you (you don’t need to be a parent) to work with us for this important ministry at this important time. Join us on Zoom for our next meeting of the Faith Formation Team on December 5th.
Family Breakfast, Sunday Nov 7 at 9am, is planned to meet on the patio with a hot drink and fellowship. Please bring a breakfast goodie, or just yourself.
Listening Circles, the Healthy Congregation Committee invites you to r.s.v.p. for this Sunday at 9am or another date to come. Share your feelings about UUFD and your place in it.
With Covid positivity numbers in our area increasing, the UUFD Advisory Group is asking the Board of Trustees to discuss moving in-person events, including worship, online for a time. Please watch your communication for updates.
Fall back and sleep an extra hour this Sunday morning. Sunday’s worship, with the new theme, “Holding History,” acknowledges the a piece of Unitarian history, Transcendentalism, that still has a strong living thread today. Where does it serve us well and where might we learn from its hubris? The choir will sing. Join us in person, or online here.
Always in the Love,
The Rev. Katie Kandarian-Morris
