MONTHLY THEME:

May - GRACE

I do not at all understand the mystery of grace - only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.  ~ Anne Lamott

The winds of grace are always blowing, but you have to raise the sail.   ~ Ramakrishna

Statement of Conscience

UUCMC Statement of Conscience on Racial Justice

At the Congregational Meeting on Sunday, March 20, 2016 the Members unanimously adopted the UUCMC​ ​Statement of Conscience on Racial Justice. The Statement was created by members of the Congregation's Racial Justice Task Force​, Ann Sherwood and Libby Schoenwolf and chaired by Aimee VanDuyne. Reverend Virginia Jarocha Ernst applauded the members. "Adoption of this statement allows us to speak in one voice against racism and acts of bigotry," Rev. Virginia said, "and be more active in the community outside of our walls. This is especially crucial at a time when a voice of love and justice is so needed."
