Rev. Wendy Patoja, UU Guest Minister, Co-chair of the Anti-Racism and Diversity Committee of the UU Metro NY District.

In our earnest wish to be as inclusive of as many people as possible, it is not unusual for Unitarian Universalists to borrow elements or rituals from other cultural and religious traditions. But even with the best of intentions, too often we end up trampling on the identity of the very people with whom we are trying to ally. How can we remain in right relationship while welcoming and honoring others?
Music by Joel DeWitt, violin.

MONTHLY THEME:

Summer Question

We asked the questions "Why did you sign the membership book at UUCMC?" and "What does membership mean to you?". Answers will be posted here. Thanks to all who participated!

We joined the congregation and signed the Membership Book because we simply believed that it was the perfect community for our family.

Our daughter, Maddie, told us the very first day she attended the RE class we participated in Sunday services that she loved this place and had already made friends.

It is one of THE most  accepting communities that we have ever experienced filled with warmth and empathy for all members. ~ Barb, Werner and Maddie Gruda
