"UU and You"
by Jamie Hinson-Rieger
Our worship theme for the month of September is Identity. There are many components that go into making up our personal identity -- for example, our age, our gender, our race, our occupation, and many more things. Some we choose and some are a function of birth or social location. Some might fit us well and some less so. In this service we will identify some of the components that loom large in our own personal identity, and ask how our UU values and commitments are reflected in that part of ourselves. For this service we will also have our annual backpack blessing, and special music by the UUI Choir making its 2018-2019 debut!

Building the Beloved Community
from our Board President, David Jackoway
Here are two ways to get involved:
In Florida there are 1.4 million people with past convictions who would gain the right to vote if Amendment 4—Second Chances Amendment (Voting Rights Restoration for Felons Initiative)—is passed. Florida is one of four states with a lifetime ban on voting for anyone who has served time for felony convictions. The Unitarian Universalist Association is holding two Phone Banking Days on Tuesdays, September 11 and October 9, from 5:30-8:30 pm ET (2:30-5:30 PT) urging Florida voters to Vote Yes on Amendment 4. Anyone from any state can participate from home. You may sign up on this Love Resists webpage and you’ll receive a link to a 15-minute webinar and instructions.
United Nations investigations and human rights groups have found evidence of genocide and crimes against humanity from Burmese authorities against the Rohingya people.The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee is sending a letter to UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, who is serving as president of the UN Security Council this month, asking that Burma be referred to the International Criminal Court. The UUSC is providing an online form so that your name will be added to their letter.
