President's Message
Greetings, Friends!

Adapted from the 'President's Remarks' at our CUUC Semi-Annual Congregational Meeting on Sunday, January 16th, 2022:

 I awake from sleep and I wonder, 'Is This the "Winter of Our Discontent?" Have we have we reached that point yet?' - Because we've been fearing for our health and the health of those we love; we've been fearing for our future, our society, our democracy... we've been asking - Again - "What kind of a World will our Children inherit? And Their Children? And Their Children? How will all this play out?"

I will tell you this: I do not possess a crystal ball; I DO Believe in "Free Will" - the power to Change our own Fate - but I also know how to read the tarot cards... which I kind of see as "The Writing On The Wall..." Almost two years ago the cards informed me, when I inquired about this COVID-19 Pandemic, that "Some People will Respond Heroically - Rising to Heroic Acts, becoming their Best Possible Selves!" Others, I understood, faced with limitations and deprivations, would struggle. Human Society - now a great Interdependent Organism Stretching Around the Globe - Would be challenged. How we individuals would face the challenges would be up to us. 

I have seen this play out in real time. I have seen people do Wonderful Things, Kind Things, "Great" Things. I've also seen that some have chosen to do selfish things, cruel things, hypocritical things, despotic and even despicable things. This is the Paradox of Humanity: Each Of Us can Rise So High or Fall So Low; Each of us has the Potential and must bear the Responsibility for Choices Made. 

I couldn't have imagined the nature of all the changes that this pandemic would bring to our Church, our Board of Trustees, our Congregation, our Individual Members. Initially, we shut our building, but we rose to the challenge of "how to Stay Connected" by making use of modern technology - the ZOOM Program, PowerPoint presentations and related things - tools that kept us "United in Spirit" From March 2020 to May 2021 - when we held our first ever ZOOM-Only Annual Congregational Meeting - and beyond - Until we ReOpened our building on West street (which we already Owned Outright - Yes! Mortgage Paid Off! Hallelujah! - Before the Pandemic started. My heart hurts for congregations who have not fared as well - because we've been Mightily Blessed!)

After Much Meeting, Planning and Discussion, we reopened our Church Building on July 4th, 2021... Since then we've faced New challenges,  such as how to adapt our technology to accommodate a "Hybrid Service" - neither "All Online" nor "All Live! In-Person" - How to "Stay Connected" with those who could not see a way clear to attending a Sunday Morning Service in the building, even with our agreed upon COVID-19 protocols in place. Since July, we've found that some of these folks have made decisions to "take a time out" or even to leave the congregation. This does not shock me, for Leaders of UU congregations were forewarned by the wonderful Reverend Sunshine Wolfe, and other leaders within the Unitarian Universalist Association. "The Stress of these Pandemic Times," we were cautioned, "is a Trauma Unto Itself."  "A year of Pandemic issues can feel like a lifetime." "People may erupt - in anger - in frustration - in other feelings that simply will Not Be Repressed any longer..." "Strive," we were encouraged, "to give them Space... Give them Time... Give them Compassion... Give  them Love." And and we were encouraged to give these Considerations - also - to Ourselves. 

Since our building's Reopening in July I've personally been fielding calls from individuals (from diverse backgrounds) who expressed an interest in attending services at our church, but then balked at the idea of being required to "wear a mask while indoors" due to our COVID protocols. Listening to these protestations, I found myself considering how 'out of balance' our Human Society can be: we want very much to Believe that our Faith can Protect us from Harm of all kinds, yet we simultaneously want to put the right to please ourselves and choose our actions "freely" above our responsibility to provide for the safety and protection of others (as well as ourselves)

- I am reminded of the meaning of the word "Covenant," which speaks of a mutual agreement for care and responsibility. Members of UU congregations strive to be "In Covenant" with one another. It's "What we do." This reflects the African word "Ubuntu," which can be translated "I am because we are."  So if somebody asks, "Why are you wearing a mask?" I can respond, "I Am Because We Are!"  

At this point in time, COVID Protocols are something we review every single month at our Board of Trustees Meeting; this is part of our "Covenant," as Board Members, with our Congregation. I expect we shall continue to do so until it is no longer necessary [Goddess Willing, that will be Soon!]
Our Board of Trustees - and our church - owes Great Thanks - to All Those who have Served on our Board and various Committees and have volunteered - in myriad ways - to keep our church ALIVE over the years - not Only since the Pandemic Began, but ALWAYS - as we've been a "Lay-Led Congregation" (posessing no "Bespoke" Minister) since early in the history of CUUC.

Volunteer Service is the HeartBeat of CUUC! We are Truly "the Little Church that Could" - and we Can - and DO - Keep changing the world - starting with our own community - through Acts of Loving Service!!!
BLESSINGS to All who've Made A Difference by Volunteering for our church! We shall NEVER Forget You, or your Kindness, in helping us live up to the Promise of 'Radical Hospitality' embraced by Unitarian Universalists everywhere!

Namaste!

- Joe WolfArth
President, CUUC Board of Trustees

Request for Volunteers!

Hello, CUUC Family!

Our church Board of Trustees has been blessed by the Kindness of so many members, over the years... so many have given so much! 
Now we shall Miss the presence of Connie Baker, who has moved to North Carolina, and Loretta Clemente, who has had to relinquish the position of BOT Vice-President for personal reasons, as well as Dana Jacobsen, who has stepped down as BOT Secretary. I am very pleased to share that Kathi Smith has rejoined the Board as a Trustee, and new member Kathy Parker has volunteered to take over the position of Secretary. Hurray!!

We are grateful for the continuing support and service of Trustees Anna Grainger, Kathy Griffin and David Herr [serving as 'Past President' now], and our indefatigable Treasurer, Rosa Jeanne Lake (who could REALLY Use an Assistant to help with the myriad duties of the Treasurer’s Office and connected responsibilities! Please Consider whether this could be YOU!)

At our Semi-Annual Congregational Meeting we welcomed the CUUC Nominating Committee for the 2022-2023 fiscal year (beginning on July 1st, 2022): Mike Parker, Linda McGraw, and Audrey Barcelo. They will be looking for folks who can help us continue forward into the future.
If you are interested in volunteering for this church in any way, please let one of us know! Fund Raising, the Annual Pledge Drive, Hospitality and Greeters, the Scholarship Committee, our Worship Committee (which Always welcomes Volunteers to be Service Leaders!) - ALL of these are things that Volunteers MAKE HAPPEN for CUUC!

BLESSINGS to All who have participated in keeping our church 'On Track!'

If you would like to share what you believe is Important as a Focus Point moving forward, Please Come to our Long-Range Planning Committee Team Meeting on Monday, February 7th at the church at 1 PM - we Welcome Your Input!
Humankind
Saving the world’s oceans with YouTube
Meet Mark Rober and Jimmy Donaldson AKA ‘MrBeast’, two of the world’s most popular YouTube personalities who are on a mission to raise $30 million to remove 30 million pounds of waste from oceans, rivers, and beaches over the next 3 years.
At 23-years old, Kansas-born Jimmy (MrBeast) is one of the most-viewed people on YouTube with over 72 million subscribers tuning into his big money giveaways and stunts. Meanwhile 41-year old Mark is an ex-NASA engineer, who applies his experience from working on projects like the Curiosity rover at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, to crazy experiments for kids, making him the world’s coolest science teacher with almost 20 million subscribers.
The two YouTubers first joined forces in 2019, turning their popularity into purpose with #TeamTrees, a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation where they aimed to raise $20 million to plant 20 million trees. The initiative became one of the largest creator-led fundraising campaigns in history, bringing in over $23 million and two years on is still receiving enough donations to plant 2,600 trees per day.
For #TeamSeas, Jimmy and Mark have partnered with non-profit organizations Ocean Conservancy, a volunteer based program and Ocean Cleanup which uses a solar-powered machine to remove trash. Both organizations have pledged to remove one pound of rubbish for every dollar raised. Since launching on October 29th, #TeamSeas has already raised over $17 million.
“Some of the challenges we face won't be solved in our lifetime, but this is one that we can solve. The Great Pacific garbage patch is big, but in 10 years, with the right funding, we can remove that out of the ocean.”- Mark Rober

Book Club Picks for 2022
 

February 2nd

Kindred


by Octavia Butler 1979

The first science fiction written by a black woman, Kindred has become a cornerstone of black American literature. This combination of slave memoir, fantasy, and historical fiction is a novel of rich literary complexity. Having just celebrated her 26th birthday in 1976 California, Dana, an African-American woman, is suddenly and inexplicably wrenched through time into antebellum Maryland.

The Book Thief

by Markus Zusak 2005
It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will be busier still.

By her brother's graveside, Liesel's life is changed when she picks up a single object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Gravedigger's Handbook, left behind there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery. So begins a love affair with books and words, as Liesel, with the help of her accordian-playing foster father, learns to read. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor's wife's library, wherever there are books to be found.

But these are dangerous times. When Liesel's foster family hides a Jew in their basement, Liesel's world is both opened up, and closed down.

Everything I Never Told you
by Celeste Ng 2014

So begins this exquisite novel about a Chinese American family living in 1970s small-town Ohio. Lydia is the favorite child of Marilyn and James Lee, and her parents are determined that she will fulfill the dreams they were unable to pursue. But when Lydia’s body is found in the local lake, the delicate balancing act that has been keeping the Lee family together is destroyed, tumbling them into chaos.

A profoundly moving story of family, secrets, and longing, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, uncovering the ways in which mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives, to understand one another.

Poisonwood Bible

by Barbara Kingsolver 1998

The Poisonwood Bible
 is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it -- from garden seeds to Scripture -- is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is a suspenseful epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.

Winterdance: The Fine Madness of Running the Iditarod
by Gary Paulsen  1994

Paulsen and his team of dogs endured snowstorms, frostbite, dogfights, moose attacks, sleeplessness, and hallucinations in the relentless push to go on. Map and color photographs.

UNBroken:A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption
by Laura Hillenbrand 2010

On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. It was that of a young lieutenant, the plane's bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard. So began one of the most extraordinary odysseys of the Second World War.

His Very Best, Jimmy Carter, A life
by Jonathan Alter 2020

Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive
 by Stephanie Land 2019

At 28, Stephanie Land’s plans of breaking free from the roots of her hometown in the Pacific Northwest to chase her dreams of attending a university and becoming a writer, were cut short when a summer fling turned into an unexpected pregnancy. She turned to housekeeping to make ends meet, and with a tenacious grip on her dream to provide her daughter the very best life possible, Stephanie worked days and took classes online to earn a college degree, and began to write relentlessly.

Maid explores the underbelly of upper-middle class America and the reality of what it’s like to be in service to them.

Cloud Cockoo Land by Anthony Doerr

Finalist for the 2021 National Book Award, longlisted for the 2022 Andrew Carnegie Medal, and  New York Times bestseller!

Thirteen-year-old Anna, an orphan, lives inside the formidable walls of Constantinople in a house of women who make their living embroidering the robes of priests. Restless, insatiably curious, Anna learns to read, and in this ancient city, famous for its libraries, she finds a book, the story of Aethon, who longs to be turned into a bird so that he can fly to a utopian paradise in the sky. This she reads to her ailing sister as the walls of the only place she has known are bombarded in the great siege of Constantinople. Outside the walls is Omeir, a village boy, miles from home, conscripted with his beloved oxen into the invading army. His path and Anna’s will cross.

Five hundred years later, in a library in Idaho, octogenarian Zeno, who learned Greek as a prisoner of war, rehearses five children in a play adaptation of Aethon’s story, preserved against all odds through centuries. Tucked among the library shelves is a bomb, planted by a troubled, idealistic teenager, Seymour. This is another siege. And in a not-so-distant future, on the interstellar ship Argos, Konstance is alone in a vault, copying on scraps of sacking the story of Aethon, told to her by her father. She has never set foot on our planet.

Squeeze Me
by Carl Hiaasen  2020. 
Hiaasen dedicated the novel to his younger brother, Rob, who was killed during the Capital Gazette shooting on June 28, 2018. The book debuted at #2 on the New York Times Best Seller list

Carl Hiaasen's Squeeze Me is set among the landed gentry of Palm Beach. A prominent high-society matron--who happens to be a fierce supporter of the President and founding member of the POTUSSIES--has gone missing at a swank gala. When the wealthy dowager, Kiki Pew Fitzsimmons, is later found dead in a concrete grave, panic and chaos erupt. The President immediately declares that Kiki Pew was the victim of rampaging immigrant hordes. This, as it turns out, is far from the truth. Meanwhile a bizarre discovery in the middle of the road brings the First Lady's motorcade to a grinding halt (followed by some grinding between the First Lady and a lovestruck Secret Service agent). Enter Angie Armstrong, wildlife wrangler extraordinaire, who arrives at her own conclusions after she is summoned to the posh island to deal with a mysterious and impolite influx of huge, hungry pythons . . .

21 Lessons for the 21st Century 
by Yuval  Noah Harari 2018

How do computers and robots change the meaning of being human? How do we deal with the epidemic of fake news? Are nations and religions still relevant? What should we teach our children?

Yuval Noah Harari's 21 Lessons for the 21st Century is a probing and visionary investigation into today's most urgent issues as we move into the uncharted territory of the future. As technology advances faster than our understanding of it, hacking becomes a tactic of war, and the world feels more polarized than ever, Harari addresses the challenge of navigating life in the face of constant and disorienting change and raises the important questions we need to ask ourselves in order to survive.
