Mid-Week Centering

Please join Rev.

Book
Discussion: "Born on Third Base" by Chuck Collins
UU Wellesley is joining with other local churches and organizations in welcoming Chuck Collins, the author of "Born On Third Base; A One Percenter Makes the Case for Tackling Inequality, Bringing Wealth Home, and Committing to the Common Good."

As part of the Community Reads program, UU Wellesley will hold a discussion about the book on Sunday, April 2 following worship.  A few days later, a town-wide event will feature a discussion with the author.  Since this book proposes reforms consistent with UU principles to address the economic inequality problems in our culture, it is important that UU Wellesley be well-represented.  The discussion with the author will take place at the Wellesley Community Center on Thursday, April 6 at 7:00pm.

Sunday, April 2, 7:00pm in Rice House Living Room
Crafts & Conversation

In the past, crafts have included quilting, weaving, knitting, mending, and coloring mandala books. If you don't have a specific craft, do you have a button that needs sewing, or do you just want to clean out your purse, or address envelopes in the company of others? No craft or project is necessary--just come and enjoy the company of others.

Saturday, April 8, 8:00am in Parish Hall
Men's Breakfast

The next Men’s Breakfast will be Saturday, April 8 at 8am in the Parish Hall.  A hot breakfast will be followed by a short talk by Eric Pierce entitled, “Tools: 5 cool tools you may not know you needed."  This talk will be just in time to make suggestions for Father’s Day.  If you plan to attend, please contact Wayne HERE so we can make sure that we prepare enough food.

Sunday, April 23, 12:00pm in the Sanctuary
"What's with Worship?"

For reasons that would be a mystery to no one, I find myself reading articles entitled "50 Proven Ways To Add Years to Your Life."  A recent AARP article suggests that attending a worship service once a week can add between 4 and 14 years to your life.  But what makes it "worship"?  What or who do you worship?  How does our sanctuary contribute or detract from the worship experience?  Is worship for you more "subjective" or more "objective"?  If worship has little or no meaning for you, come and tell us what's missing.  Who knows; you might get the hour back in added life expectancy!

Saturday, April 29, 7:00pm in congregation members' homes
Small Group Dinners

Please plan to participate! The last two Group Dinners were attended by more than 60 people each. And remember, if you have young children and would love a night out, we’d be happy to reimburse your child care expenses.  Sign up HERE.
