YOUTH GROUP INFO:
Special thanks to the parents (Ken & Jerusha Vogel, David Smith, Jennifer Leavitt) and Rev. Julio who participated in and drove into New York City on a very rainy evening to deliver food and clothing to the homeless on Saturday, November 18. It was unanimously felt that we should do this again!
WREATH SALES ARE HERE THIS AND NEXT SUNDAY! The Youth Group will be selling wreaths for the holiday season on Sundays, November 26th and December 3, from about 10am to 1pm. We will be selling 12”, 16″ and 20″ wreaths and bows.
HOW WELL DO OUR YOUTH REALLY KNOW EMERSON, THOREAU, CHANNING, FULLER, etc: In January, we will begin a series of snack & learn sessions at the Meeting House about some of the seminal spiritual/intellectual works of Emerson, Thoreau, Channing, Fuller, etc…as well as important older works such as Servetus’ work On the Errors of the Trinity. This will be open to youth and their parents. The first work we will be examining is Emerson’s essay Nature. The work is not long and remarkably influential; you will see the thumbprints which became the UU seven principles for instance. We will examine Emerson’s main themes and the literary and historical context of the work and Emerson’s time. If the weather is good, we will incorporate the discussion with a hike (yes, at the same time, so stay close), departing on foot from TUCW property into, you guessed it, nature (Leonard Schine Preserve Family Nature Trail)!!. Youth will require written permission for this. If bad weather or it is extra cold, we will meet at the Meeting House.
KINDLY NOTE: There are no LFD classes this Sunday.
