Season for Non-Violence: Volunteers Needed!
Would you like to help AUUC honor the legacy of Gandhi, King, and all those who have used — and continue to use — peaceful means to pursue justice? The Social Justice Committee seeks volunteers of all ages to read special chalice lighting words on Sunday mornings during the Season for Non-Violence, which is celebrated each year between January 30 and April 4. If you’d like to participate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accotink Kids Care
On Saturday, December 3, AUUC hosted its annual “Ease Into the Season” event. Several families attended to welcome in the holiday season with freshly made cookies, hot chocolate, crafts, and games. There was ornament and decoration making. The kids also had lots of messy fun making art with shaving cream, paint, water colors, tissue paper, and glue. Their colorful masterpieces were turned into cards for hospitalized kids. Participants also spent some time writing cheery new year messages for the insides of cards. We ended up with a box full of 110 cards to brighten hospitalized children’s day (see www.cardsforhospitalizedkids.com).
