Time to be Proactive?

Wondering what you can do to improve our ecological dilemma? Get a copy of The Better World Shopping Guide and find out which companies and their products cause the most problems. Take the guide with you and see if that brand of milk, gas, peanut butter, or cereal you’re buying is from a “corporate villain”. You can buy a copy at our next service or HERE.

How would you explain Unitarian-Universalism to someone in the time it takes an elevator to move 6 floors (about 30 seconds)?  

Of course, the first step is to decide what being a UU means to you.

According to Doug Muder there's a movement that attracts millions of people and encourages them to become their best selves—but it's not a church. Read his thoughts here.

PEW Research on Global Religious Diversity

Half of the Most Religiously Diverse Countries are in Asia-Pacific Region

Several years ago, the Pew Research Center produced estimates of the religious makeup of more than 200 countries and territories, which it published in the 2012 report “The Global Religious Landscape.” The effort was part of the Pew-Templeton Global Religious Futures project, which analyzes religious change and its impact on societies around the world. As part of the next phase of this project, Pew Research has produced an index that ranks each country by its level of religious diversity.

This Sunday we will observe Earth Day in honor of our seventh Unitarian Universalist principle which encourages "respect for the interdependent web

of all existence of which we are a part." Earth Day is a common celebration in UU congregations across the world, reminding us of our responsibility to the physical and spiritual connection we have to our environment.
