FROM REV. ALEX

Joys for this week:
I spoke with Susan Hegel this morning. She is is back home and Chris continues to recover speech and movement after his strokes. He is currently in rehab in Erie. He will come home in the next two weeks. Susan appreciates all the support from church.

I also called Tom Richey this weekend. He called back this morning. He just got back from camping with sons. He says he is doing well. I reminded him of the picnic and he hopes to attend.

I am on vacation this month but will be available for any emergencies.

 
FIVE WISHES

Members of the congregation have alerted me to “The Five Wishes” program. It presents a carefully laid out program of planning for final wishes before we die. What’s important? What are our wishes for medical providers? “Do not resuscitate” decisions? What do we want our family to know in advance? Please look at the link below for important information.
 https://fivewishes.org/docs/default-source/Samples/five-wishes-presenters-guide.pdf If you have any questions or would like help with preparing your five wishes, please let me know and I’ll help out.

INSPIRATION OF THE WEEK

 We learn and grow and are transformed not so much by what we do but by why and how we do it.

SHARE-THE-PLATE

Every month we share our offerings with a community group whose mission is consonant with ours. This month we have selected French Creek Valley Conservancy. The French Creek Valley Conservancy is a private 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the exceptional    water quality, natural habitat, biological diversity and recreational opportunities of the French Creek  Watershed in Northwest Pennsylvania.

UU FRIENDS

Hope everyone is taking good care of themselves and their loved ones. During this difficult time of confinement and social distancing, we need to busy ourselves with productive activities… Just a reminder that our “Yard Sales” project remains in effect on an ongoing basis…Now is the perfect time to clean out those closets or tackle the attic. You’re bound to have some treasures to sell! Remember all you have to do is snap a picture and text it along with a description about the item to Michele (814) 332–0999 or to Peggy (724) 256-2268 and we will take care of it from there. Posting on Facebook is one of the easiest and fastest ways to make money…

And remember our Ooh La La consignment boutique account is up and running. The store has reopened and appointments are required to dropping off items for consignment. There is also a “25 item per person per day“ limit. As a reminder, items need to be in very good condition,  free of “issues” (no snags, stains, fading) and in current style and on hangers with no wrinkles.…As always thanks for helping out. Since we created this account, we’ve made over $1000!

Love and Light to All…
Michele Baker
