January 14

Join us this Sunday, January 14, for lunch and meaningful fun for all ages following the Sunday Service!

It's a great way to build our beloved UUI community!

This Sunday is Stone Soup Sunday!

Everyone who is able is encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Boulevard Place Food Pantry. There will be a collection bin in the Social Hall for your donations.

Our Worship Leader, Jamie Hinson-Rieger, will be telling the story of Stone Soup with the help of our congregations' children during the Words for All Ages portion of the service.

11:30am - 12:30pm

Lunch!

All food and beverages will be provided. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options available. 

Our wonderful Second Sunday Meal Coordinator, Cindy Wilson, will be serving a delicious soup lunch following the service.

Many thanks to the UUI Moon Circle for assisting Cindy Wilson with lunch in December!

This month our Worship Team is assisting with lunch.

Highchairs are available in the Social Hall Coat Closet.

Join Jen Hancock, Executive Director of FACE Low-Cost Animal Clinic and members of the UUI Social Justice Committee in the Sanctuary to learn about Indianapolis’ only high-volume, low-cost animal clinic. FACE's mission is to end euthanasia of cats and dogs in Indianapolis by offering accessible spay/neuter, vaccination, medical care and community cat care, without financial or geographic restrictions.

FACE is this month's UUI Share-the-Plate recipient, which means that except for designated pledges, half of the January offering will go to FACE.

Book Discussion

Book Selection: "Learning to Die in the Anthropocene: Reflections on the End of a Civilization" by Roy Scranton

This author foretells the end of civilization as we know it and perhaps the end of the human species due to irreversible climate change on Planet Earth. He supports his prediction with copious evidence and logical arguments. Join us at 12:15pm in the Cottage Library, after the Second Sunday lunch and let us see if we can refute his arguments to paint a brighter future for our grandchildren.

To ask questions about the book before Sunday, please contact Larry Miller at boxbay@aol.com.

UU102 Workshop--A Justice-Seeking People

Our Second UU Principle challenges us to work for "justice, equity, and compassion in human relations." In this workshop, led by Worship Leader, Jamie Hinson-Rieger, we will explore through readings and personal stories how this principle touches our own lives. What breaks our heart? What are we called to do? What do we need to move forward at this moment?
