A weekly guide to stories about Unitarian Universalists from other media sources
Members of the UU Church of Greater Lynn, in Swampscott, Massachusetts, volunteered at the Food Project’s Lynn Farm, helping with fall clean-up and taking home some of the harvest. Tara Gallagher, who is also a member of the congregation’s Green Team, said, “The Food Project is a fantastic organization bringing fresh food to Lynn, empowering youth workers and building community. . . . It was a privilege to help them with their post-harvest tasks and to remember how much work goes into farming.” (Wicked Local, October 1)
The UU Fellowship of Lafayette, Alabama, planned its community’s participation in the Global Climate Strike for late in the day, for a very specific reason. The fellowship’s president, Jackie Phelps, explained that she “did not schedule it during the heat of the day because global warming has made it too hot to do that, hence why we started at 6.” (The Vermilion, October 2)
The UU Fellowship of the Conejo Valley, in Newbury Park, California, has adopted a new name: Chalice UU Fellowship of the Conejo Valley. As the Rev. Nica Eaton-Guinn says during worship each week, “The flame symbolizes the light within each person, the light of hope and unity.” (Moorpark Acorn, October 4)
