Social Generosity Offering: December 2020

Our December offering will go to Guest At Your Table, the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee’s (UUSC’s) annual intergenerational program to raise support for and awareness about key human rights issues. This year, the theme is The Meaning of Home. Collection boxes and other resources including a 14 Day Calendar of vignettes are available in a bin at the foot of the Free Little Library by the main entrance to church. Or you can use this link to print the template for the collection box at home.

How to Donate: You can donate online using a credit card at bit.ly/giveuucm. You may also mail a contribution to UUCM at 2030 Wayzata Blvd E, Wayzata MN 55391. Simply make your check out to “UUCM” with “Social Generosity” in the memo line.

For many of us, our relationship with home has intensified this year. The pandemic has given many of us new appreciation for, and concerns about, the places we call home and the centrality of these places in our lives.

This year during Guest at Your Table, we invite you to witness stories of our partners around the world as they tell you about home. Our partners in Central America are working to make sure no one is forced to flee their home due to violence or economic devastation. Our partners in Alaska, Louisiana, and the Pacific are fighting for their homes and ancestral lands against the ravages of extractive industries and climate change. And our partners in Burma, Bangladesh, and beyond are working tirelessly to support the rights of the Rohingya ethnic minority of Burma after facing government backed genocide in their homeland.

The ways in which our congregations and families come together may look different, but the beloved tradition of Guest at Your Table is here and needs your support.

  1. C has been enjoying putting money in the box every day, and I appreciate the tear-off guide that features one partner on each page. It has been a great conversation starter about social and environmental justice at our dinner table! If this should be produced in future years (and I hope it is), I would love if a kid-friendly version could be created as well.
