Families have recently taken refuge in the USA and Prairie UU are holding a fundraiser so they may continue to offer them financial support. Our 50/50 Collection will go to help the families with their needs as they get started.

We agree to:

Listen deeply / be fully present
Refrain from cross-talk
No judging or giving advice
Hold what is shared with confidentiality
Chalice Lighting (read together)
We light this chalice;
our welcome to share,
and our communion to declare.
May this flame
shine bright and afar
to serve as our community’s lodestar.
All are welcome from everywhere.
By anastasi birosh
What makes you feel welcome in a new space?
How do you know you belong somewhere?
What can we do to make sure everyone is welcome here?
Cheered by our community,
blessed by our covenant,
uplifted in mind, and renewed in spirit,
go forth with courage and in peace to meet the days to come. Amen.
By Burton D. Carley
