Two UUs Read Poetry for Earth Day
Two long-time friends, Kim Chapman and Jim Armstrong, have been sharing their experiences in nature and poetry for over thirty years. They will read their own poems with nature at the core, touching on culture and the personal — as well as favorite poems by Mary Oliver, William Stafford and Walt Whitman.
Learn What YOU Can Do to Increase Clean Energy
If you're like many people in the congregation, you may be puzzled about the best way to translate your values into action to support climate justice and clean energy. Understanding Xcel Energy’s plans and programs for being carbon free by 2050 and researching the options for going solar and wind may seem daunting. The Sustainable Living Team is sponsoring this session which will include brief informational talks from experts about what clean energy is, ways to reduce your household's energy consumption, how to improve energy efficiency in your home, and what solar or wind options are out there and how to sign up.
How to Embrace Change with Curiosity and Courage
Unity Church is on the cusp of a significant amount of leadership change over the next few years, staring with Ruth Palmer's retirement next month. Even though change is the one constant in our lives, individual responses to it varies widely. Come to this interactive and fun session facilitated by Unity Church member Clover Earl (Certified Coach and Facilitator) to discuss your hopes and fears; and to learn a skill grounded in neuroscience, to support you in maintaining your balance during this period of significant transition.
Project Home training: Homeless with Children in Saint Paul
Every May, Unity Church’s classrooms become temporary housing for families in need of emergency shelter. We are privileged this year to have Sara Leigl, the heart and soul of the Project Home Program, come to Unity Church and provide a training session for volunteers. You may have been to a training before, but Sara offers a deeper look at the program which will enrich your experience. We encourage you to come and learn from a dedicated leader working every day to help improve the lives of homeless families.
Bring your knitting, embroidery, needlepoint, etc.
