The UUCM Time Capsule, which was sponsored by the Venerable Men, has now been completed and sealed and it was officially Dedicated during the Service of October 20th.
Jeffrey Hatcher and Ben Kyriagis, jointly, prepared the following secular dedication blessing which was read during the Dedication Ceremony:
“ We dedicate this Time Capsule Monument,
To the Past that we honor,
To the Present that we share,
And to the future that we create together.
May it remind us to celebrate our times together,
As we make our own paths, live our own stories,
And endeavor to create a Beloved Community for all !”

Our OCTOBER Social Generosity Offering will go to Sojourner Project. Sojourner’s mission is to provide emergency shelter, support, and legal advocacy services to those victimized by domestic violence and other forms of interpersonal violence. To that end, they provide services to victims of dating violence and sexual assault. Their ultimate goal encourages the change from crisis to stability and the transition from victim to survivor. In order to build safer communities, Sojourner conducts outreach activities and specifically designed presentations to heighten public awareness and engage groups and individuals in educational opportunities to prevent future victims and abusers. All Sojourner services are confidential and free of charge.
