January 27
Shall We Gather
The Reverend Georganne Greene
A conversation: in times of great chaos, where is our solid ground?

The Reverend Georganne Greene recently retired after 21 years of service in UU ministry.  The report from the retirement front is enthusiastic.  The current administration provides ample opportunity for social/political engagement; there is also time for weekly singing, hiking, volunteering and the playing of pickleball.  Most essentially, there is plenty of space for enjoying beloveds and practicing being awake.

Cancellation of Sunday Services
 In the event that Sunday services need to be cancelled, an announcement will be sent via email and will be posted on the Society's website.  In addition, the office phone message will be updated (by 8:00 AM Sunday morning) and television stations WWLP (Channel 22) and WGGB (Channel 40) will be notified.  It is recommended that you check at least 2 of these sources (e.g., you will not get the recorded phone message if the building is without power).  The decision to cancel services will be made no later than 7:30 AM on the Sunday in question.
