August’s Theme: Prayer & Meditation
August 4 – Touchstones Service, Rachel Nordhagen – Service Leader
August 11 – Third and final session of White Fragility led by Greg Grallo and Mary Nordhagen. If you have read the book, great. If you haven’t, the service will still be meaningful.
August 18 – Potluck Sunday, Sara Berndt – Service Leader
August 25 – Homecoming Sunday – we are inviting everyone we can think of who is currently or has ever attended UUFM. There will be invitations available for you to use to invite people also. Let’s celebrate those special connections that we feel for both those we see regularly, and those we think of but seldom see.
