We have voted!
Rev. Sue Gabrielson: "What do we do now? The same thing
we did yesterday... love fiercely, be our best selves,
hold hands, lift each other up, and do it together."
MUUSAN Network Meeting
Saturday, Nov. 12, 10:00-noon
(second Saturday, every other month)
UU Community Church of Augusta
69 Winthrop St., Augusta 04330
After this grueling election season, we gather for spiritual re-centering, warm fellowship, celebrating the good work of our congregations on behalf of endorsed ballot initiatives and getting out the vote, and looking ahead to the next legislative session with some new faces!
To begin, we will gather at 10:00 AM in the sanctuary for a 30-min. service led by Rev. Carie Johnsen.
Please do not enter the sanctuary before 10:00 AM, as the UUCCA orchestra is rehearsing. Enjoy coffee and refreshments in the Fellowship Hall until 10:00.
Our Issue Groups (Democracy in Action, Health Care for All, Climate Change) will have a significant chunk of time to meet in person.
Hope to see you there!
