Sunday Mornings with UU Cheyenne

This Sunday, August 2nd

Guest Speaker Luanne Gearhart

Joy in Times of Distress

What really is joy?  How does joy differ from happiness?  Can we be full of joy yet be fearful of losses (income/ health insurance/ job)?  How can we be joyful in a time of sheer utter chaos and uncertainty?  Drawing from some of my favorite authors, we will examine the concept of moral joy.  Brooks explains moral joy as a form of transcendent joy with an extra kick.  It can be permanent!  Let’s see where this jump into moral joy takes us.

Join us in our usual Zoom room {link below} at 10 am MDT for fellowship and an opportunity to hear from reps from Black Dog Rescue, our Share the Plate partner for the month of July.

Pris and I are planning a congregational gathering of music, poetry, prose – and other
worthwhile thoughts or reflections for Sunday, August 16..  We want to engage any of you
who would be willing to share a short something with our ZOOM congregation. 
   We are thinking of perhaps a theme of “Contentment in Hard Times,” but suggestions are appreciated.
We will select as many as we can…If we get a lot of ideas and volunteers (hope!  Hope!), we may not use
them on that particular Sunday, but be assured we will save them carefully for a future service!
    You may also ‘volunteer’ someone you know who would do a credible performance, talk, poem, paragraph,
etc.  Tell us how to get in touch and we will reach out to them…
    Thank you!  Thank you!!

New UUCC Ministry!
Adopting a Segment of Crow Creek for Cleanup
 
New UUCC Ministry!
Adoption of a Segment of Crow Creek for Cleanup
 
UUCC has adopted for cleanup the segment of Crow Creek that runs through Martin Luther King Park between 19th St. and Lincolnway and Missile Drive and Dey Ave.  Our next cleanup is scheduled for Sunday, June 28 at 7:00 p.m.  We meet in the parking lot south of the softball field off of Ames, near the Habitat Restore.  We generally work just over an hour and fill one large trash bag per person.

Participants are encouraged to wear long pants and long sleeved shirts (the vegetation is knee high and can be pokey) and suitable shoes (Mike and Kathy wear muck boots, but there is plenty of cleanup that does not involve getting wet).  A tool of some sort, such as a hoe or pitchfork, is helpful for snagging trash in the creek.

The city of Cheyenne requires all of those who participate in the cleanup to sign an Assumption of Risk, Waiver & Release form.  Folks are not allowed to participate unless they sign the form.  Mike and Kathy will bring forms for those who wish to participate to the cleanup location on the scheduled date.  Mike and Kathy will also provide trash bags to all participants.

Kids under 14 years of age must be accompanied and supervised by an adult.

Important! Please Read!

We have been experiencing a growing issue with peanut residue in the building, especially in the library.  Please, do not bring peanut products into the building, and if your little ones enjoy their peanut butter snacks before coming, please be sure their hands are clean before they touch surfaces used by everyone.  We are seeing almost daily allergic reactions, so we ask you to please be diligent. It may be an inconvenience to you, but it can be life-threatening to those who are allergic. 

Upcoming Events
