February 4 "Our Mission Statement" - Kathy Harm

The Rutland Unitarian Universalist Church has a Mission Statement that was adopted many years ago. Although the statement expresses much of what we strive for, there is no expression of inclusion of all people, other than “all ages”. Is it time to update our statement? The statement can be found in the church directory. A work session on our mission statement will follow the service.

February 11th: Rev. Barbara Threet - “Where Do We Come From?”

What are our roots, as a faith and especially, as individuals? How do people celebrate, address, ignore or flat-out deny their cultural or ethnic or religious roots, and what difference does it make? Our Heritage Potluck on February 10th, described elsewhere in this newsletter, will give us a chance to share some of our roots through food!

February 18th: Felice Best - “The Story of Esther”

The traditional Jewish story of Purim story will be read and performed, with the congregation actively taking part - think noisemakers to boo the villain! The sermon will explore how this story relates to current world issues.

February 25th: Rev. Barbara Threet - “Giving Up, Giving Back”

Lent starts on February 14th this year on the Western Christian calendar and on February 19th for the Orthodox. We’ll examine what insights this season might offer for UUs.

Statement of Support for Rutland Welcoming Syrian and Iraqi Refugees

"Because our Unitarian Universalist principles call us to affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person, act with justice and compassion, and build world community; and because we recognize that communities are enriched by embracing cultural and religious diversity, RESOLVED that we, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Rutland, stand in support of Rutland welcoming Syrian and Iraqi refugees to the community and support efforts to ease the transition for the refugees resettling here."
