Exploration & Potluck: February 19, 2017

More Than a March!

The Women’s March invigorated many of us, lifted our energy, and instilled some hope for the future.  Yet, we know that there will be much more to do.

Rev. Julia McKay

Please join us with guest speaker Rev. Julia McKay from Columbine Unitarian Universalist Church on Sunday, February 19, 2017, to explore how to build on that momentum, maintain our resilience, and continue the resistance.

“Our task now is not only to continue to express our love in all of the ways we know how to do, but to allow a love that we have not yet known. Our task is to tolerate the insurgence of a love larger, deeper, and more profound, than any trouble we can imagine.  To be able to turn our imagination toward the tide of overwhelm. To turn it toward all those who feel so disenfranchised that they would create such disturbance.  Our task is let our love disturb the disturbance.” — Rev. McKay

Come explore the ways that we can live demonstrating our UU values.

Rev Julia McKay has been the settled minister at Columbine Unitarian Universalist Church in Littleton, CO since 2013.  Previously, she ministered in Montana and Washington before she returned to live in her hometown of Castle Rock, CO.  She is most passionate about helping people live the essence of who they are in the world as gift and grace.  She is grateful to be spending the afternoon with Castle Rock UU Community!!

We hope you’ll join us! As always, we will finish up with a potluck and social hour, so please bring food and/or drink to share. Blue jeans and casual attire are welcome.

Our current meeting place is 3737 New Hope Way, Castle Rock, CO, 80109, in the Castle Rock Room of New Hope Presbyterian Church*.

Meetings begin promptly at 4 o’clock p.m.

To R.S.V.P., simply email Cath Wyngarden cath@cruuc.org.
