President's Message

Hello All!

I must Confess - I'm submitting this column LATE to our Amazing Newsletter Publisher and CUUC's BOT Secretary, the incredible Dana Jacobsen - because I was simply "Overcome By Events!" I was feeling SO Proud to be a Unitarian Universalist after reading emails about the success of the Unitarian Universalist Association's "UU The VOTE!" Program - which mobilized UUs to help get voters (in key states, particularly) motivated to put their Voting Power to Use in this very Contentious election season... 

AND THEN... our world shook at the events of January 6th, 2021, as armed insurrection took place in our nation's capital... and fear cast a shadow over the installation of a new US President and Vice-President and their Cabinet...

In music class at Holly Hill Elementary School many,  many years ago, I recall singing a song beloved of our school's music teacher, which contained this following lyrics: "My country, 'tis of thee - sweet land of liberty... Of thee I sing! [-] From every mountainside - Let freedom ring!" And as a result of this experience, throughout my life in hearing the words of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  - from his uneradicably Awesome "I Have A Dream" speech - when he describes holding hands all together as we "let freedom ring... from every mountain and molehill" and says we can, "in the words of the great negro spiritual" exclaim together, "Free at last - free at last - Thank God Almighty" we shall finally Be "Free at Last!" I consider,  too, the way that our UU Principles and Traditions - like the U.S. Constitution and our Bill of Rights - proudly declare our Values, including the right to Dissent, while supporting organization over chaos and the rule of law over anarchy. 

We Believe - Deeply Believe - in participating in the life of a nation which values our right to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." 

We must encourage and endorse the people suited - by their willingness to Serve, rather than Be Served By, our nation's population, to run for political office... and when they win a legitimate election, we will support fully their efforts to make our country safer, healthier and less corrupt for ALL of its citizens - not just an elite few who feel entitled to speak for All and to decide the fates of the multitudes.

Our belief in the righteousness of the Democratic Process is enshrined in our positions on "congregational polity" as well as the words that guide us whenever we look to the Traditions and Principles that serve as a Rudder for our denomination.

So many of us have spent the last four years wondering when we will sleep peacefully again, due to the ill effects of a presidency run amok in the nation's capital, led by a man whose lust for attention, power and control led to nearly countless acts of desecration towards the high office of President of the United States of America, making decisions that continously supported the privileged over the underserved, displaying a lack of interest, much less concern, for his constituents, and recklessly disregarding the impact of policies that abused citizens' rights to be healthy and safe from harm, whether related to criminal actions committed by those in control of financial resources and political power, or actions with harmful consequences for the future of our species and our planet as a whole. And this man showed absolutely no contrition.

As members of a free society, we Must now demand that the criminal injustices perpetrated upon the least empowered among us continue to be brought into the light of Truth, and that Justice be Served, not in vengeance but in Fairness, for the Good of All. 

I ask no less from our elected officials than their honest commitment to participate with us - ALL of their constituents (not Just Unitarian Universalists!) in refashioning our nation's system of government to more genuinely reflect these values, and to continue to seek ways to better these movements towards equanimity, and to permanently close avenues that have allowed so much Harm to be Done!
And I know that SOME of the People in Washington DC are there because they Believe in the vision of a Better Future for our Nation - and the generations to come - as You and I Do!

My prayer for the members of Congress, our new President and Vice-President and the Administration they're building, and the United States Supreme Court, is that their hearts will be Stirred to Believe in this Vision for our Future as Passionately as "We The People" - the People who are ultimately Responsible for their presence in our nation's capital - have proven that We Do. 

For those who have been harmed, I Pray for Justice. For those who have planned and plotted and caused Harm and for those who have lied and schemed and abused and exploited, I Pray that they will be Brought To Justice. For those who have Misled Others, I Pray the Same. And for those who have been Misled, I Pray for the light of Truth to Shine Upon Them; I Pray for Serenity for their troubled minds and consciences, and I Pray that they may find Healing and Wholeness, and Release Bitterness from their hearts. Not only You and I, but our descendants and those to come - Need them to attain this.

Namaste.

Spotlight on a Member

In Remembrance of Bud Cullison

 I was hit hard - in December - by the news of Bud Cullison's passing, and I have since thought of him often.

I can't exactly recall the 1st time I ever met Bud and Pat - I always saw them together, and they were one of the couples who came to represent  - for me - the true meaning of the words, "Happy Together" - I never saw them argue (though I imagine they Must have argued at some point in time, perhaps they just kept it behind closed doors) - I Can Say that I met them in church, and I knew them as "church people" for quite awhile before I saw them anyplace else. I knew they had belonged to the UU Congregation in Downtown Orlando before moving East to our coastal community, and I knew that they were dedicated to volunteering for the church that they called "Home." So becoming involved in the life of Community Unitarian Universalist Church was a natural "next step" for them after their relocation. 

The moment that Stands Out for me is from the day in - 2005(?) - when I was hosting a "party" at my home in Holly Hill - a cute little 2-Bedroom, 1-Bath house with cute little rooms that I called "The Cottage" - my goal in decorating it was to make it feel "cozy" and enhance the "cottage" feel; I felt satisfied enough with the results that I decided to hold a party like an "Open House" and invite folks from church and my workplace to "Drop By" and Visit.
Bud and Pat were on their way to dinner, I think, when they came, and I was alone when I opened the front door and invited them in for a "tour..." and why this memory stands out for me is the unexpected thing that Bud Cullison SAID. 
He told me that he had spoken with some others at CUUC, and they thought that I would make a welcome addition to the church's Board of Trustees. I looked at him quizzically but decided not to ask him, "Have you been Drinking?" [There was no reason to ask it except for how unprepared I was for the Question!]
After I regained my composure and considered a response, I said, "I would Surely be the Youngest, and Poorest(!) Person EVER to serve on that Board." I guess I thought that would end the conversation [the church's leadership seemed to me to be the sort that would exclude me for these reasons; most of the people I knew on the Board seemed to be retired folks, and financially secure  - Surely I would Never "fit in" with a group like That!]
Bud eyed me evenly and replied, "I think I can speak for Others as well as myself when I tell you that honestly I think these things are Pluses, Not Minuses. Our Board NEEDS Younger members, to help us stay "fresh!" And I believe you have said you have a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art - which tells me that you have a Creative Spirit - and We NEED Creative People who can "Think Outside the Box" to help us "grow the church" and problem-solve and reach out to the community... how are we going to achieve this? Help from someone like you can be a blessing in this regard... And as for your income level... I don't think there's any required Tax Bracket for BOT Membership... going back to the previous idea, "Diversity" also means people from different backgrounds and with different income levels are going to be valued by our church  - and if you can serve on our Board, you can inspire others to do so as well  - not hold themselves back because they are afraid they won't "fit in!"  - and for all these reasons, I think you would be an Asset to the BOT."

Obviously I am paraphrasing  - I wouldn't be able to recall the exact words of a conversation that took place 15 years ago - but I know that I have captured the Spirit of Bud's words to me.  And that is why I will always remember that conversation. 
Bud Cullison BELIEVED IN ME  - More, I think, than I Believed in Myself (and I have served on the CUUC BOT for about 13 of the 15 years Since Then - currently I am serving as our church's Board President  - something I NEVER Thought would Happen! Believe it or not, I consider myself an "Introvert!" - I am just more outgoing than the Average U.U. - Perhaps!) - And THIS is my Point [if Bud were here, he'd be Tapping His Watch to Encourage Me - no doubt thinking, 'YES! Get To The Point!'] - 
The Fact Is that Bud Cullison BELIEVED IN PEOPLE  - And Things of Value - like Our Church, and Living A Life of Principle, and Being of Service to Humanity (in Whatever Way you Can!) - And he made Sure You KNEW IT - with his Words, but also with his ACTIONS (Most of the years that I have served on our BOT since that initial conversation, Bud ALSO Served!)

Bud became a "quiet Hero" to me because he always Stood Up for what he believed.
In our church he was a "Father Figure" in that he always seemed to bring a Guiding Presence in to the spaces where we worshipped and met... others (among them, Charley Barcelo, Lloyd Dunham, and Al Fregin - who now carries the mantle for this group of distinguished gentlemen) join Bud in my mind as being representative of the fact that Good Triumphs over Evil, and Good Men - KIND Men - bring us back to the Center and help us to keep a Steady Keel in a world full of chaos, of dangerous rapids and eddies and whirlpools that threaten to throw us Off Course and Wreck our Dreams.

Bud represents  - to me - the Antithesis of the Self-Serving Tyrant that seems far too often nowadays to be "the man behind the facade" of Public Figures in Leadership. 
Bud (and his "Amigos" like the others I have listed) quietly and politely have Kept Things Going, and Running Smoothly, largely unheralded, not only in our church and our community but Around the World, Despite the Winds of Chaos.

I am Grateful for his influence on my life, and the support he has given to so many people and organizations; and I Bless Him for it! THANK YOU, Bud Cullison, for making it look "easy" to Embody What You Believe!

FAMOUS UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISTS

Gilbert Charles Stuart
1755-1828
Artist


The following blurb is taken from Wikipedia.  Please use this link for the full article.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilbert_Stuart

Gilbert Charles Stuart (born Stewart; December 3, 1755 – July 9, 1828) was an American painter from Rhode Island Colony who is widely considered one of America's foremost portraitists. His best known work is the George Washington, begun in 1796, that is sometimes referred to as the Athenaeum Portrait. Stuart retained the portrait and used it to paint scores of copies that were commissioned by patrons in America and abroad. The image of George Washington featured in the painting has appeared on the United States one-dollar bill for more than a century and on various postage stamps of the 19th century and early 20th century.

Stuart produced portraits of more than 1,000 people, including the first six Presidents. His work can be found today at art museums throughout the United States and the United Kingdom, most notably the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Frick Collection in New York City, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the National Portrait Gallery, London, Worcester Art Museum in Massachusetts, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

The Lost City of the Monkey God
by Douglas Preston (non fiction/adventure)
 
Since the days of conquistador Hernán Cortés, rumors have circulated about a lost city of immense wealth hidden somewhere in the Honduran interior, called the White City or the Lost City of the Monkey God. Indigenous tribes speak of ancestors who fled there to escape the Spanish invaders, and they warn that anyone who enters this sacred city will fall ill and die. In 1940, swashbuckling journalist Theodore Morde returned from the rainforest with hundreds of artifacts and an electrifying story of having found the Lost City of the Monkey God-but then committed suicide without revealing its location.


Three quarters of a century later, bestselling author Doug Preston joined a team of scientists on a groundbreaking new quest. In 2012 he climbed aboard a rickety, single-engine plane carrying the machine that would change everything: lidar, a highly advanced, classified technology that could map the terrain under the densest rainforest canopy. In an unexplored valley ringed by steep mountains, that flight revealed the unmistakable image of a sprawling metropolis, tantalizing evidence of not just an undiscovered city but an enigmatic, lost civilization. ...

 Good Morning Midnight
by Lily Brooks Dalton (science fiction)


Augustine, a brilliant, aging astronomer, is consumed by the stars. For years he has lived in remote outposts, studying the sky for evidence of how the universe began. At his latest posting, in a research center in the Arctic, news of a catastrophic event arrives. The scientists are forced to evacuate, but Augustine stubbornly refuses to abandon his work. Shortly after the others have gone, Augustine discovers a mysterious child, Iris, and realizes the airwaves have gone silent. They are alone.

At the same time, Mission Specialist Sullivan is aboard the Aether on its return flight from Jupiter. The astronauts are the first human beings to delve this deep into space, and Sully has made peace with the sacrifices required of her: a daughter left behind, a marriage ended. So far the journey has been a success, but when Mission Control falls inexplicably silent, Sully and her crew mates are forced to wonder if they will ever get home.

As Augustine and Sully each face an uncertain future against forbidding yet beautiful landscapes, their stories gradually intertwine in a profound and unexpected conclusion. In crystalline prose, Good Morning, Midnight poses the most important questions: What endures at the end of the world? How do we make sense of our lives?
