The agenda will be threefold:
1. An update on where things stand with UVIP’s plan to use the coming year as a “discernment year” as UVIP Member Groups consider affiliation with GSOP (NH groups) or VIA (VT groups).
2. More time with Sarah Jane Knoy of GSOP and Debbie Ingram and Melissa Battah of VIA. This is a GREAT time to get to know Sarah Jane, Debbie, and Melissa!
3. Making several small changes to UVIP’s constitution so that our Executive Council’s interaction with Sarah Jane during the “discernment year” is made easier.
See you on May 17 on Zoom!
The Adult Book Group will begin discussing Climate Church, Climate World by the Rev. Jim Antal on Sunday February 9 at 9:30 a.m. in the Emmaus Room. Climate Church, Climate World argues that climate change is the greatest moral challenge humanity has ever faced. Hunger, refugees, poverty, inequality, deadly viruses, war—climate change multiplies all forms of global social injustice. Environmental leader Jim Antal presents a compelling case that it’s time for the church to meet this moral challenge, just as the church addressed previous moral challenges. He suggests ways people of faith can reorient what they prize through new approaches to worship, preaching, witnessing and other spiritual practices that honor creation and cultivate hope. Books are available by ordering on Amazon. If you order through the publisher, you may enter promo code RLFANDF30 at checkout for a 30% discount. You are welcome to join the discussion any Sunday!
