Mindfulness Is a Means of Transformation

Feb. 25, 2019. By Interim Director of Religious Exploration Diana Tycer. The UUCF mission statement sits on my desk, and I read it almost daily. As I am sure you all know, it says our mission is to transform ourselves, our community and the world through acts of love and justice. For some in our congregation, those words call them to bold and visible action. They protest monthly in front of the National Rifle Association headquarters, they travel to Richmond to lobby our state representatives, they network in the community to combat climate change, serve the homeless and foster interfaith collaborations.

Small Acts of Tremendous Spirit

Feb. 18, 2019. By Lay Minister for Membership & Outreach Shannon Williams. The night of “The Vagina Monologues,” the UUCF campus thrummed with energy.

We all could have walked out afterward fulfilled by the experience. But most of us didn’t walk out. We paused, lingering by the snack table and makeshift bar. I watched in awe as our Commons, packed with members, friends and neighbors, bloomed to life. The sight thrilled my heart. The space transformed from a room with folding […]
