June 18th – 25th

Connect with the sun that keeps you bright and alive. Accept the fire that burns away all that you have outgrown, all that no longer serves you. Release it by using your new power, and welcome the future into your present because today is a turning point for you and for all. Say YES to the light , to YOUR light. 

~ Happy Summer Solstice!

This week’s reflection


was sourced from the book “Becoming – A Spiritual Guide for Navigating Adulthood” By Kayla Parker.

~To the Beloved Community,
Go Boldly
By Jean M. Olson

May you be brave enough to expose
your aching woundedness
and reveal your vulnerability.
May you speak your deepest truths, knowing that they will change as you do.
May you sing the music within you,
composing your own melody,
playing your song with all your heart.
May you draw, paint, sculpt, and sew,
showing the world your vision.
May you write letters, poetry, biography,
slogans, graffiti, the great novel,
laying bare your words to love and hate.
May you love even though your heart
breaks again and again.
And until the end of your days,
may your life be filled
with possibilities and courage


Judy Rishel has done it again!

Provided us all with some colorful Treasure Boxes to collect things from our summer adventures to share when we gather once more.  
Swing by the Fellowship and collect one of your choosing from our RE box out front.
Inside you’ll find fun prompts and ideas on what to add to it:
From stories you wrote, to photos, stones and nature objects that you find in your travels…
Come by and grab one today!

As I begin to shift my focus, ever so slightly, in preparation for this upcoming year as DLRE (Director of Lifespan Religious Education), I am looking for tools and resources to support us parents and caregivers in our work of raising change-makers & heart-led revolutionaries.
In this quest, I’ve stumbled upon the above book,
the sandbox revolution

If you have a moment, please take a look.  I’d love to organize a common reading of it together as we re-gather this fall.  (Conversely, I am deeply open to suggestions for other reads, as well.  Particularly from queer, bipoc & marginalized voices related to parenting.  Please, feel free to send ideas my way!)
Thank You! ~Amy Day

HUUF 2021-2022 Pledge Drive Update
We are inching our way toward achieving our Pledge goal of $180,000 for the fiscal year beginning on July 1.  To date, we have received pledges totalling $140,000 -Thank you!

As you know, we will have more bills to pay in 2021-22, since we have retained the Rev. Peter Farriday—and we expect to open up our children’s and youth RE programs, which require paid staff. We ask that you send in your pledge now for our next fiscal year at the level that you are able.

Next spring we will hold a more typical Pledge Drive Celebration, and we will be able once again to offer our pledges while we enjoy the company of our Fellowship community.

Many thanks!
